The Castle House is situated in open countryside with sweeping views, about one mile north of the Hertfordshire village of Hare Street and a similar distance to the west of Anstey. The original house dates back to the late 18th century and was a public house until 1956, when it was converted into residential use. The adjoining timber framed and weather boarded barn was integrated into the house soon after it was converted into residential use. Further extensions were added around 1980 and in 2000 the previous owners added a substantial extension to the rear of the house which has transformed the scale and function of the house.
The accommodation is particularly generous on the ground floor and offers flexible accommodation with potential for an annexe. On the ground floor, there are four reception rooms, a ground floor double bedroom and bathroom and a study/office. At the back of the house, there is a very impressive kitchen/breakfast room, which links to a family/garden room with doors out to the terrace. On the first floor, there is a large master bedroom with en suite bathroom, there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. In addition, there is a cellar with a reasonable ceiling height. The house has recently been redecorated and various improvements have been made.
Outside, a gravelled in/out driveway leads to a gated parking area and to a triple garage has a lockable garden store. The west facing gardens are very much a feature and include an substantial terrace, rolling lawns, shrub borders and fruit trees, as well as useful garden sheds and a heated swimming pool and changing room. There is also a detached single storey building which has been used as a games room and has a wood burning stove and WC. This building has a separate council tax band and could easily be converted into additional living accommodation. In addition, there is a recently created play area with astro turf, a waterproof membrane and shock pad which is netted on all sides and currently used as a hockey pitch. To the north of the formal gardens, there is a paddock of about two acres with its own access to the public highway.
