Property Ref: 62684


This stunning and tremendously characterful 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 opulence, together with the convenience of modern day living, the apartment has a wealth of original character features including beautiful wooden panelling, an original fireplace, ceiling cornices, deep skirting boards, full height sash windows (recently refurbished with new double glazed units), an attractive wide bay window, and exposed timber ceiling beams.

It is one of just 8 apartments, all unique in design and sharing a grand communal hallway with intricate cornices, wide panelled doors, staircase with ornate balustrades, chandeliers and deep period windows. As well as a separate cellar and fabulous communal grounds, the apartment has a private entrance hall with entry phone, truly opulent open-plan sitting room and stylish fitted kitchen, a generous double bedroom with en-suite shower room, a second bedroom and a period style bathroom. Outside there are two allocated parking spaces and visitors parking bays. Bragbury Manor is approached via electronically operated gates and enjoys well manicured and attractively planted communal grounds.

Bragbury End is situated just East of Knebworth village. 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. Hitchin, Welwyn Garden City, St Albans and the County Town of Hertford are an easy drive away.
