Situation
The impressive gated driveway to Hawkswick House runs directly off the A1081 between St Albans and Harpenden. St Albans City centre and Harpenden town centre are on your doorstep and make the location most conveniently accessible, whilst rural enough for those who wish to enjoy country living.

There are excellent sporting and leisure facilities in and around Harpenden and St Albans, including indoor swimming pools, sports centres, a number of renowned golf clubs and tennis clubs and a newly-resurfaced athletics track. Both St Albans and Harpenden offer an array of excellent schools, both private and state, for all age groups.

Description

The property
Hawkswick House, as it is known today, was originally the stable block and coach house to what was known back in the 1880's as Hawkswick Manor. This magnificent house was once one of Hertfordshire's most significant country houses, but was sadly demolished in 1931. However, the brick stable block and coach house remain.

Today, Hawkswick House represents a most wonderful and unique country house, which offers exceptionally spacious accommodation over two floors and tremendous flexibility if one is looking for a multi-generational family home. Not offered to the market for over 40 years, Hawkswick House now offers the opportunity to purchase a country house in a rural setting, yet just approximately 1.8 miles from St Albans City centre and 3.1 miles from the market town of Harpenden.   

The rooms throughout the house are all of very good proportion and enjoy high ceilings, which add to the sense of brightness and space. As one will note from the floor plan, the accommodation lends itself well to those who are looking to consolidate two families or have an au-pair or ancillary staff. There are numerous features to the house, but one in particular is the extensive octagonal-shaped family room. This room offers a multitude of uses and has more recently been used as a home office.

Once outside in the gardens and grounds, one really starts to understand why Hawkswick House is considered to be a delightful 'hidden gem'. From the long and impressive tree-lined driveway offering a real sense of arrival, to the stunning walled gardens and the enclosed wild meadow to the southern side, you really feel that this is a most special location to reside.
