Currently, i am a full time student . I also work part time renting out vacation homes that belong to family members and friends. I love traveling and spend most summers in England where i was raised as a child.

Rachel purchased this house in 1998

This property is very unique, charming and full of character. Recently filmed on ITV for it's historical interest- there is no other home quite like it. If you would like to see the film- let me know- and you will see for yourself just how magnificent it is inside and out.

The location of this property offers the best of both worlds- You can enjoy all of the major tourist attractions in London which is just a 25 minute train ride away- and yet you feel as if you are in the peace and quiet of the countryside. Located on the border of North London and Hertfordshire - the home is perfect for guests that want to explore London as well as all of the stunning villages and towns of Hertfordshire such as Hertford, St. Albans, Shenley, Hemel Hampstead.Other unique benefits of this house are the beautiful views and spacious , comfortable interior.

This home is a masterpiece!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful home. its spacious but still warm and homely considering the grand size. i love the old decor with a modern colourful twist, its a unique building and a pleasure to be in. Its not too isolated, but enough to keep your privacy. the tower house style is eye catching and i love view it has from the top. Its perfect for a large family becasue of all the bedrooms and classy en suites. I recommend this as a lovely warm inviting home for familys and friends.

Exclusive, delightful house- highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
we just had an incredibly special time staying at this delightful home close to london. Initially we were looking for a stay in the center of london but are so happy that we found this home instead.It was a pleasure every day to return to the peaceful and beautiful surroundings this home offers. We appreciated the tranquilly after several intense days exploring the sites of london. The description of the home matches what we found here but the photo's do not quite capture the grandeur and appeal that you find when you arrive. A long private road takes you to the front courtyard and along the way you see bunny rabbits running over the lawns. The approach is truly magnificent and impressive. There are two stunning master suites and a kitchen to die for. We loved the house so much that we are already planning a trip with our adult children. We found the manager to be very sweet, caring and thorough from the start of the booking procedure to the day we departed. The house offers a high standard in all departments and is much more affordable than hotel living in london. The restaurants in the closest town are first class.There is a breakfast cafe that we recommend just opposite cockfosters tube station - called "miracles'. great value and great food.Thanks for a wonderful stay. we loved it.

elegant, impeccable, magical place to stay in london

  • 5 of 5
our family of 6 arrived at this magnificent home and were so impressed. It has every amenity you would have at home and the environment is just so special is hard to describe. Everyone was happy with their bedroom...they are all so full of character and comfortable. The living area is amazing. We loved the nights at home by the fireplace. The kitchen has a big wooden table and chairs and we enjoyed our family meals together. The distance to london is just over half hour away by train...so very easy to get to. Local pub is warm and welcoming. The golf country club is just up the lane and my dad and uncle were in heaven with the amenities there.I would highly reccomend this home in all caterogies.

The local pub is within walking distance and the area is surrounded by world class restaurants, golf facilities and shopping malls .

NORTH LONDON- THINGS TO DO:

For those guests that have not yet explored the delights of NORTH LONDON we highly recommend Primrose hill, camden town market, Kenwood House in Highgate, Brent cross shopping Mall, Hampstead heath, Finchley rd O2 center for concerts and other events , The british library, Regents Park zoo, Regents canal, Little venice. All of these venues are within a 30 to 40 minute drive from the house.

HERTFORDSHIRE-THINGS TO DO AND SEE:

Hertfordshire is home to Elizabeth 1, Henry Moore, Samuel Ryder , Queen mother, Graham green & George Bernard Shaw. With beautiful and mysterious houses such as Hatfield House and Knebworth House you will be in awe of their treasures and history.We recommend trips to the british gardens at the stately homes where you will see glorious gardens of lavender, snowdrops, butterflies & rose-there is something to see all year around. With fabulous festivals throughout the year in many villages and towns there is something for everyones interest.

Local history, social history, strange artefacts , fascinating characters, stunning historical buildings,roman villages, vibrant market towns abound in Hertfordshire. For family fun- search out the life size dinosaurs at Knebworth, see the big cats and the smallest monkey at Paradise Wildlife Park or head down to Celtic Harmony for Celtic crafts and archery in a beautiful woodland clearing.

Whatever you decide to do, wherever you decide to go Hertfordshire will not disappoint you.
