Hidden away in a historic hamlet is The Stables Courtyard, a beautifully laid out former set of outbuildings converted over 30 years ago.
Located within the Theobalds Park estate, a former ‘prodigy house‘ and manor, The Stables Courtyard, through a gated entrance, sits on just over an acre of land, surrounded by historic outbuildings, now all private family homes.
The layout has been gently altered through time by the present owner, adapting the space to their lifestyle over the decades. As you approach the front door, you are welcomed by a dark wood facade, leading you into a quarry tiled hallway.
Straight through to the kitchen/dining room, there is a feeling of countryside comfort within the beams, and victorian tiled floor. Complete with a wood burner in the corner, the kitchen is tucked neatly to one side, providing a fantastic space for dining. The living room is the stand-out space, replete with double height ceiling, a brick feature fireplace and a mezzanine snug, truly setting the historical tone for the whole home.
The rest of the property continues with three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one ensuite) and an office/bedroom, the only first floor room in the property. All the bedrooms are a great size, with one currently arranged as an open-plan exercise space. There is also a utility/boot room, with direct access to the garden.
The principle access to the garden is through the garden doors in the living room, leading out to double stone steps. Ancient oaks and willows fill the top half of the garden and feature a 500-year old well, that according to local folklore, Queen Elizabeth 1st, drank from when visiting Theobalds Park. A sumptuous lawn leads down to a stream at the bottom of the garden. Sweeping countryside views can be seen through the trees, as well as the neighbouring beautiful, grade 2 listed Temple Coach House.
Externally, the property’s driveway boasts ample parking, a detached barn which has exciting versatility and potential. In addition there is pre-planning already in place to extend the property, which would remove the boot room and extend gracefully into the garden, all which can be completed under permitted development.
The Stables Courtyard is located within an old hamlet, oozing English authenticity. Accessed via a private road with controlled electric gates and entry phone system, it ideally located for commuting with access to the M25 and A10 in minutes.
Local train stations include Potters Bar, a 15 minutes drive away, and only a 16 minute train journey into London Kings Cross. The overground station at Theobalds Grove is also only an 8 minute drive, and connects directly to Liverpool Street in just over 30 minutes. Stansted Airport is also within easy reach.
There is a great selection of popular state and private schools locally, as well as Brookfield Farm Shopping Centre for all your everyday essentials.
