From Town & Country

THE PROPERTY: An elegant Grade II-listed farmhouse, Gannock Green has undergone a sensitive restoration that retains its Georgian-period features. Open fireplaces, exposed natural timbers and Victorian tiled floors meet sweeping staircases, large sash windows, modern bathrooms and spacious bedrooms in this five-bed property, which is surrounded by six acres of landscaped gardens and an adjacent heated swimming pool. The residence also comprises a number of outbuildings, including a detached old granary, former stables, a double garage, a pool house and an adjoining fuel store and workshop.

THE LOCATION: Nestled in a small, rural hamlet on the edge of Sandon village in Hertfordshire, the property is situated less than an hour away from London’s Kings Cross by rail, thanks to the nearby Ashwell & Morden train station. Just seven miles from the A10 and eight from the A1 motorway, Gannock Green is within easy driving distance of the beautiful city of Cambridge.

THE INTERIOR: A blend of modern and classic styles, the house is decorated with features such as grand chandeliers, vintage wallpapers and a warm interior palette. The kitchen – home to a traditional oil-fired Aga – and breakfast-room are fitted with a range of bespoke hand-painted cabinets and drawers, as well as granite work surfaces. For a moment of peace and quiet after working from home in the large study, settle down in the cosy garden-room and watch the world go by.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Secluded in the countryside but with good links to the city, this home would suit a growing family, thanks to its spacious living, dining and entertaining areas. With the additional opportunity to renovate the detached old granary, Gannock Green’s new owners can inject their own design into the property.
