Cherry Grove is a luxurious 8-bedroom detached house in the hamlet of Westland Green, about half a mile from the village of Little Hadham. The hamlet, in a woodland setting, consists of similarly exclusive properties.
This beautiful modern house would be equally perfect as a home for an large family or for anyone who loves entertaining on a substantial scale. Besides the numerous reception rooms and bedrooms inside, the one-acre grounds contain a pool house, a cabana-style entertainment area with a bar installed, and an annexe block with a large office and garages.
After approaching from a woodland road and through a gated entrance, you come into the house to find a large, well-lit entrance hall dominated by wooden staircase. Like the entire property, it’s been beautifully maintained.
To the left, you’ll turn into the luxurious lounge, with twin focus on the large fireplace and the extensive bay window. Beyond are a cosy family room and three bedrooms (or four bedrooms, if you prefer) with a well-equipped shower room. This is an incredibly flexible area of the house.
Returning to the entrance hall, on the other side you’ll find an extensive kitchen that combines a modern and traditional style. Along with the integrated units and appliances, there’s a central island unit and plenty of space for a table.
Beyond is the elegant dining room, featuring a chandelier in the centre of the ceiling. To one side is a large conservatory with views over the rear gardens.
Going up that beautiful staircase from the hallway, the large landing gives access to the four main bedroom suites, each with a well-equipped en-suite. The first floor also offers a useful utility room.
The rear garden features a large flagstone patio, lawns and several trees. The circular, cabana-style entertainment area, on the lawn, offers the perfect place to bring your guests — open to the garden, but under cover.
The self-contained pool house, to one side of the main building, features a jacuzzi, changing room and showers, as well as the pool itself. To the other side of the house, a self-contained block includes a large office, offering the ideal space to run a business from home, pursue a hobby or just get away from it all. Two garages are attached to it, one single and one double, and the driveway offers space for plenty of cars.
Westland Green offers the perfect balance of community and privacy, and is paradise for children to play or for your guests to soak up the peace of the countryside. It’s anything but isolated, though. You can easily reach the villages of Little Hadham, Much Hadham and Standon, which all have a selection of shops and pubs, while for anything more substantial the towns of Hertford and Bishops Stortford are just 10-20 minutes away.
Both the A10 and M11 are close by and will take you either into London or to Cambridge, and several high-quality golf clubs are within easy access. If you’re looking for schooling for the kids, you’re spoilt for choice — either various state schools with high reputations or a number of private schools of the calibre of Haileybury and St Edmunds College.
Cherry Grove needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated — if you’re looking for a luxurious but relaxing home, you’ve found it.
