The Property:

We are pleased to offer this unique opportunity to purchase a landmark house in the local area, offering substantial accommodation in a wonderful mature plot.


Originally built in 1857, Lemsford House is a fabulous country retreat retaining much of the original charm and Victorian features, requiring updating. Gas central heating is installed with zoned controls and there is an efficient broadband connection. High ceilings, picture rails and original fireplaces adorn the principal rooms and there are particularly fine views over the gardens from the main living room and dining room. The vast majority of the accommodation is spread over two floors with one bedroom in the attic, which is currently used for storage and allows access to a vast walk-in loft space. On the first floor the master suite has both en-suite shower room and bathroom and there are three other bedrooms to this wing, served by a family bathroom. Two further double bedrooms and en-suite, Jack and Jill bathroom are located in the guest wing, approached via a staircase from the half landing.

Externally the gardens are a particular feature of the house enjoying extensive lawns, shrubberies, mature trees and working well. There is Victorian garden room with tack room, gardeners cloakroom and a large workshop, original stabling with dovecote and hayloft above. A gravel and part block paved driveway provides ample parking and wiring for electric gates. NB. The images shown are from when the property was occupied and has since fallen into disrepair.

Council Tax: Band H (£3,228.20 Apr 17/Mar 18).


The property is situated on the outskirts of Lemsford Village close to the Brocket Estate, itself on the outskirts of Welwyn Garden City in mid Hertfordshire. There are two public houses and a renowned primary school. The Brocket Hall Estate with two championship golf courses, fine dining restaurant and 18th century mansion is a short walk distant. During the 2nd World War, Brocket Hall was used as a maternity unit and Lemsford House was used to accommodate unmarried mothers with illegitimate babies born at Brocket Hall. The property is well situated for access to all major road links with the A1 within 5 minutes' drive. Luton Airport is within 20 minutes and mainline rail services at Welwyn Garden City some 2 miles distant.
