Graycroft is beautifully positioned on the edge of the sought after village. The house and yard are located at the highest point of the property and enjoy stunning far reaching rural views over the undulating Hertfordshire countryside.
The house benefits from four good sized reception rooms, which include a magnificent drawing room with a double height ceiling, large open fire and doors to the extensive terrace. The cosy kitchen adjoins the well-proportioned sitting room which includes a log burner. To one end of the house on the first floor are three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite) and at the other end is a further bedroom and bathroom as well as a reception room. This end of the house could easily be used as an annexe.
A short distance from the house is the pretty stable yard, which includes 12 boxes and a tack room. Adjacent is a large farm building, workshop and further store room. Beyond the outbuildings are the beautifully maintained post and railed paddocks, interspersed by woodland. The land is a particular feature of the property, which is ideal for livestock as well as providing stunning walks amongst the beautiful mature specimen trees. It is very rare to come across this much land within 35 miles of London.
From London head north on the A1 to Junction 7. Turn right at the roundabout and follow the A602 through to Broadwater Lane carrying on through to Benington Road. Follow the road past Aston through to Benington. In the middle of Benington turn left down Hebing End opposite The Lordship Arms pub. Graycroft is the second last house on the right hand side.
Benington is set in beautiful unspoilt countryside offering a well- regarded village school, a pretty village green and a sports ground as well as two independent pubs. The nearby village of Watton-at- Stone provides a full range of amenities including its railway station, village stores with post office, an award winning butchers and a pub. Stevenage mainline station is 15 minutes away by car. Cambridge and St Albans both offer extensive recreational and shopping facilities and there are excellent schools for all ages in the locality.
