The Walled Garden
The Walled Garden is completely secure, private and secluded. Set within a 2 acre, 15 ft (4,5m) wall, the property is located beneath the escarpment to the National Trust Ashridge Estate and on the edge of this most sought after Chiltern Hills village, Aldbury. The Walled Garden is certainly one of those wonderful ‘hidden gems’.
Standing centrally within the walled garden and boasting a wonderful high degree of privacy and seclusion, The Walled Garden boasts some spectacular far reaching countryside views mainly from the first and second floors of the house. With over 6,000sq feet (560m2) of living space, this really is a wonderful short term break.
Once at the front gates, one immediately feels a true sense of arrival as you sweep down the drive to the house, the wonderful setting begins to unfold. The front door opens to a most bright and spacious reception hall, with a galleried landing above, and flows through to the reception rooms and kitchen area. For those who love a more open arrangement of rooms for both family living and to entertain, the arrangement of rooms lend themselves perfectly for such purposes.
In addition, set on the lower floor, there is a cinema room, gymnasium and table tennis room.
Other rooms of note include the breakfast room which features a high vaulted ceiling, the master bedroom suite with its rather unique en suite arrangement and the bedrooms on the top floor which, without doubt, have the best views of the surrounding countryside.
In addition, there is a lovely sun lounge, currently used as a study, that enjoys a delightful aspect across part of the gardens and has a door that leads through to the indoor swimming pool.
For those who may need separate staff accommodation, above the garage is a fabulous living/bedroom with its own shower room and its
own separate access, if required.
The gardens and the areas of private ground beyond the walls are without doubt the overarching features to the property. With numerous seating areas, either on the terraces or beneath the shade of one the many trees that adorn the gardens, or at the end of a pretty little pathway, one is spoilt for choice as to where to enjoy those sunny days with, maybe, a Gin & Tonic in hand!
