Stunning five bedroom period detached family home offering nearly 4,000 sq ft of accommodation and perfectly positioned on a south facing plot approaching 2.5 acres located close to St Albans city centre.
Burston Manor dates back to its construction early in the 12th century, with the current owners having undertaken extensive re-modelling and updating works throughout the last decade. This stunning grade II* listed family home beautifully intertwines elegant modern design with its original character features, retaining the warmth and charm throughout the period property.
The epitome of grandeur, the property is accessed through a private sweeping driveway and is encircled by its very own moat. On entering the manor house the generously proportioned and welcoming entrance hall is warm and leads directly to the drawing room, sitting room, dining room, study, utility and kitchen on the ground floor. The kitchen breakfast room has been thoughtfully designed to complement the traditional period home with an Aga, central island and family seating area.
The drawing room exudes character with a brick built fire place fitted with a log burning stove complemented by wood panelling. A striking brick fireplace renders the equally impressive dining room perfect for formal entertaining. For those needing a work from home area or playroom, the sizeable study is the ideal area. Natural light floods in through the dual aspect windows highlighting the feature exposed beams in the idyllic sitting room. The ground floor is completed with a good sized utility room and separate cloakroom.
On the first floor, accessed via two staircases, there are four double bedrooms, a single bedroom and family bathroom. The generous master bedroom offers fabulous views over the grounds, with a beautiful en-suite bathroom complete with a double sink vanity unit, roll top bath and over-sized shower. The guest bedroom comes with walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom.
Burston Manor is encompassed by its own land with a large area of lawn to the south and west. There are an array of mature hedges and shrubs to the borders with well stocked flower beds. The moat wraps around the East side of the house and provides water to the zoned irrigation system. Additionally, there is a double garage, double car port, potting shed and tree house.
