Property Ref: 43362


This stunning and extremely individual ground floor apartment forms part of an impressive converted Grade II listed manor house that is believed to date back to 1760. Combining a clever blend of traditional elegance and the convenience of modern day living, this apartment has original character features wherever you look, including cornicing, deep skirting boards, and an exposed beam in the bedroom. It is one of just 8 apartments, all unique in design and sharing a grand communal hallway with intricate cornicing, wide panelled doors, staircase with ornate balustrades, chandeliers and deep period windows. As well as a separate cellar with lock up and fabulous communal grounds, the apartment has a private entrance hall with entry phone, truly impressive open plan lounge and fitted kitchen with an 11' high ceiling and a wide bay window with garden views, a generous double bedroom and a period style bathroom. Outside there is an allocated parking space and visitors parking bays. Bragbury Manor is approached via electronically operated gates.

Knebworth is within a short drive and has a busy High Street with a good mix of shops including 2 chemists, post office, library, doctors surgery, 2 dentists, butcher, Cooperative general store, churches and recreational grounds with tennis courts and a bowling green. Other outlying villages, as well as Stevenage, provide good shopping and leisure facilities, and Mainline stations to London's Kings Cross.
