About the Property
AGOGS, an exceptional example of a Dutch Barn brought back to life for the 21st century. This perfect for entertaining statement property including five double bedrooms, five bathrooms and four reception rooms has been thoughtfully and meticulously extended to provide over 7000 square feet of quality accommodation. This includes a separate detached 2-bedroom cottage, a studio annexe, gym and changing room, giving independent living for teenagers, family members, nanny or possibly to produce a rental income.
Positioned off a quiet village road in the sought-after hamlet of Much Hadham, AGOGS is completely unoverlooked and accessed via private gates and a long-shingled drive. The bespoke wisteria clad stone arch welcomes you into an impressive hall leading to a ground floor of bright spacious rooms. The use of contemporary glazing throughout AGOGS ensures a light filled house and, in some rooms, beautiful 180 degree views of the mature gardens which blend with the countryside beyond. Whilst the house is of a contemporary design with all the benefits of 2020 living, the current owners have retained much of its original charm and immense character including the inglenook fireplace in the music room and exposed beams throughout.
Particularly impressive is the 30 x 27 feet kitchen/family room with its open plan layout so perfectly suited for the way families live today. The high specification kitchen includes a 4 oven Aga, Sub Zero fridge freezer and 154 bottle dual zone wine cabinet, Miele integrated appliances and a refrigerated walk-in larder. The separate utility room houses a heated drying cupboard and provides direct access to the garden. The boot room contains the “Comms” cupboard containing CCTV.
The four generously sized double bedrooms on the first floor (there is an additional guest suite on the ground) have ensuite bathrooms and dressing rooms or fitted wardrobes. The vaulted ceiling adds character to a huge master suite, its triple aspect windows and sliding doors offering access to a private balcony with stunning views of the gardens and rolling landscape.
The mature gardens are a notable feature of AGOGS providing a wonderful private aspect. A substantial part of the 4-acre plot is given over to easily maintained lawns and woodland including many large trees, some over 200 years old. The landscaped formal gardens have several large entertaining terraces, a heated swimming pool, tennis court and gymnasium and changing rooms. A newly refurbished Breeze House encourages entertaining in the cooler evenings whilst the 100’ enclosed walled garden with its flagstone terrace is perfect for enjoying breakfast or lunch. There is a 2-car garage and further outbuildings which could be readily converted to additional garaging.
