The property is a Grade II listed cottage, designed by the world renown art and craft Architect Sir Edwin Lutyens as the original gardener's cottage to Langley End house. The detached cottage is situated in an idyllic semi-rural location with its own sunken garden, two storey detached dovecot, private woods, barn, stables and paddock. The cottage has its own private working well which supplies water to the cottage.
The main cottage residence retains many of the original Lutyens features and offers spacious character and versatile accommodation, which includes four reception rooms, cloakroom, kitchen, utility room and three bedrooms, all set within beautiful gardens. Within the sunken garden stands a two storey Dovecot which is converted to form a residential accommodation to be used as guest house or a home office. To the side of the gardens is a listed barn with workshop area which has the potential to be converted to home use, such as a gym or home office. The 0.4 acre gardens surrounding the cottage are set in formal and natural settings. In addition, the cottage has its own private woods, stable block, menage, and paddock, extending to approximately 1.5 acres.
The property benefits from fibre direct Internet connection and is situated less than 4 miles from the market town of Hitchin, which provides a wealth of shopping, recreational facilities and excellent schools. Hitchin station offers fast and frequent rail services into London Kings Cross with Luton airport 35 minutes away. Langley End itself is a small hamlet of houses situated on the edge of the late Queen Mother's Bowes Lyon Estate at St. Paul's Walden.
