This restored Georgian property in St Albans is a gardener’s paradise

Hidden gardens and ancient orchards are on offer at this St Albans property in Hertfordshire, which combines Georgian bones with tranquil, earthy interiors.

The four-bedroom St Albans property is Grade II-listed and wrapped in 1.25 acres of landscaped gardens, including terraces bordered by topiary box hedging, expansive lawns that run down to the River Ver, a mature kitchen garden and an ancient orchard.

Interiors meanwhile have been thoughtfully modernised to balance old and new. Thick rustic beams cross ceilings and walls – a solidness that is countered by exceptional light that streams into every level through sash windows, skylights and glass doors.

Ground floor spaces – comprising a sitting room, dining room, kitchen and a drawing room – are interconnected across the Georgian house. A redbrick fireplace offers a cosy nook, flanked by bookcases recessed into the walls, while views of the house’s landscaped grounds are best enjoyed from the garden room, where dappled light flows through an ornate glass ceiling.

Across the Hertfordshire property – for sale via The Modern House for £2.25m – rooms brims with character thanks to solid-oak floorboards, ceiling mouldings and bespoke cabinetry. Three bedrooms fill the second floor, while the master bedroom is nestled in the eaves of the old house, making the most of double-height pitched ceilings and far-reaching views.
