Elliot Heath are delighted to offer this substantial character home in this idyllic riverside location, with a fabulous south facing terrace enjoying wonderful views. The village of Great Amwell features a fine collection of country houses, most of which are associated with the architect and engineer Robert Mylne and his family. This unique house was constructed circa 1795 by Robert Mylne but was rebuilt in the 20th Century to a different design, though several significant features of the original property were retained. The property occupies an elevated position, with stunning views over Amwell Pool and the 2 New River islands. This stunning home has been exceptionally well maintained by the current owners to offer beautifully presented interiors full of charm and character. There is excellent road access to the market towns of Hertford and Ware, both offering extensive educational, shopping and leisure facilities. Mainline railway stations are available at the nearby village of St Margaret’s and Ware with regular commuter services to London’s Liverpool Street. The A10 provides access to London and the M25 to the South.
