The Property:

Sewards is a fine, William and Mary Grade II Listed detached residence, with spacious, comfortable accommodation, set in stunning grounds of about an acre, residence, dating from 1699. This wonderful property has remained in the same family for over 40 years. The sweeping drive to the property is surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and a manicured garden. In total there is more than 4,500 square feet of spacious, flexible accommodation and outbuildings.

Some external period features include the striking red brick façade, gabled timber porch, gabled chimneys and ogee cup and ball finial to central cupola.

The property also retains a number of period features internally, with exposed timber beams to the walls and ceilings, original fireplaces and exposed brickwork. On the ground floor there are four well-proportioned reception rooms – the comfortable sitting room, the dining room with its large inglenook fireplace, the informal breakfast room with its brick-built fireplace, and the reception room, with the wooden staircase at its centre. The kitchen is fitted with white storage units, while there is also a useful utility room, which was the original dairy room.

The seven bedrooms are split across the first and second floors. On the first floor there is the main bedroom, with its dressing room and en suite bathroom, plus two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor there are four further bedrooms, each of which is a generous double.


The small village of Brickendon lies two miles south of Hertford, the bustling county town of Hertfordshire. The village has a local pub, while nearby Bayford has a primary school and a mainline station, offering direct services to Moorgate (47 minutes). For other everyday needs, Hertford is within easy reach, and offers excellent shopping, a selection of supermarkets and a good choice of restaurants and cafés. Hertford boasts a number of reputable schools, including the outstanding-rated Abel Smith School for primary and Simon Balle All-Through School for secondary. For leisure, Brickendon Grange Golf Club and The Hertfordshire Golf & Country Club are all nearby.


The property is approached via a driveway, which leads to the side of the house, and a courtyard parking area outside the double garage, carport and workshop. The gardens are mostly found to the front of the house, with its pristine and extensive lawns and elegant gravel pathway leading to the front entrance. There is also a walled courtyard area to the rear, which is ideal for al fresco dining. The gardens are enclosed by mature trees and high walls.

Additional adjoining acres are available to purchase including a barn with planning permission - Guide prices on request.
