What's the best way to spend £3.3 million?

How about buying a whopping 8-bed farmhouse in Bower Heath, Harpenden, loaded with all the bells and whistles one could wish for?

This massive home, recently listed by estate agents, Strutt & Parker, offers more than 4,300 sq ft of living space adorned with a tasteful décor which combines traditional design and classic refinement.

For those of you itching to do a quick mortgage calculation – a 25-year mortgage at five per cent interest would set you back approximately £17,625 per month.

A steal for a country pile of this magnitude, right?

The property sports a grand total of five reception rooms – that's one reception room for every day of the work week.

Whether you fancy a sophisticated soiree in the dual-aspect drawing room (inclusive of a wood burning stove and French doors that lead out onto the garden), a cosy night in front of the cast-iron fireplace in the sitting room, or a refreshing retreat to the conservatory-style dining room with panoramic windows and glass ceiling, Hill Farm has something for everyone.

It's not just reception rooms in abundance though, this red brick farmhouse also boasts a plethora of bedrooms.

Seven in total sprawled across the first floor, one of them being a perfect candidate for a luxurious dressing room, and the eighth is located on the lower ground level.

Of these bedrooms, two have en-suite bathrooms.

There is also a family bathroom with a 'Jack and Jill' entrance to another of the double bedrooms on this floor.

The culinary inclined would not be disappointed with the shaker-style kitchen that comes complete with a split butler sink and an Aga, just itching for a baking session on a rainy day.

And when the baking is done and it's time to relax, the verdant view from the adjoining breakfast table is sure to satisfy.

This farmhouse, situated in Bower Heath, is not just living quarters.

Apart from the main building, it proudly offers plenty of opportunities for a productive work-from-home setup.

The property boasts a large barn with wood burning stove and oak flooring, kitted out for entertainment, and two spacious rooms replete with server racks and a high-speed fibre optic direct internet connection, ready for transformation into office spaces.

Lastly, but definitely not least, are the grounds.

Spread across 2.8 acres, Hill Farm sports a beautifully maintained garden, areas of lawn, paved terracing, walled gardens, vegetable garden with raised beds and a greenhouse, open meadows for grazing animals and even a full-sized hard tennis court enclosed with chain link fencing.

Borehamwood Times:

The estate also features a three-stable block, storage shed, ample parking space in the front courtyard area, and outbuildings, including a utility room and boot room.

Overall, Hill Farm represents a unique opportunity for those looking to move into an expansive and beautifully maintained residence that balances business and pleasure with aplomb.
