Property Ref: 60991


West End Farm is surrounded by some of the county's most beautiful countryside with easy access to many country walks and bridleways. The property is situated to the west of Whitwell, which provides a general store and post office, a popular primary school, doctors surgery and public house.

The historic town of Hitchin provides a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities, together with the mainline train station serving London Kings Cross (fastest journey time approximately 27 minutes). The A1(M) junction 6, is about 6 miles away linking into the motorway network at junction 23 of the M25. Luton international airport is some 5 miles away.

There are excellent state and private schools in the area including, Hitchin Boys' and Girls' School, Kingshott Preparatory School and Princess Helena College in nearby Preston.

Thought to originally date from 16th century as a former open hall house and subsequently a working farm, the property has been remodelled over the years and now provides extensive and versatile family accommodation. In addition to a detached pool house in the grounds, which provides further accommodation - ideal for the extended family or possibly an additional income, there is a range of substantial barns, a swimming pool and stabling, together with approximately 11 acres of gardens and paddocks.

This interesting and charming property, which has much of its timber frame exposed, has a number of features to include tiled and timber floors, superb fireplaces and timber latch doors. The principal accommodation, which has oil fired central heating and extends to approximately 3870 sq ft, comprises:
