Text by

Location: Tewin, Hertfordshire, England

Footprint: 3,987 square feet (six bedrooms, two bath)

Lot Size: 1 acre

From the Agent: "Built around expansive courtyard gardens, Back Lane seamlessly stitches together a series of old and modern barns to form a wonderfully accomplished and versatile family house in Hertfordshire. Occupying a quiet position, a stone’s throw from the lower green in the sought-after Tewin, which unfolds over almost 4,000 square feet of beautifully bright living spaces. Currently arranged as two distinct homes, these would easily combine to form one large house. The site extends to almost an acre, and there is an independent garden studio/home office."

The property sits back from the main village roads and is accessed via a stone path hidden discreetly behind beech hedging that provides ample privacy.

In the main house, the kitchen is defined by minimalist detailing and a sleek material palette. The central island is topped with a waterfall marble worktop.

Positioned at the other end of the hall is a lofty living area, complete with soaring ceilings and exposed roof trusses.

Each bedroom features large glazed openings that frame views of the private courtyard.

The adjoining converted barn is currently a self-contained four-bedroom annex, which can easily be used as a turnkey rental. The neutral palette aligns with the main property.

A large lawn and low-maintenance gardens sit sandwiched between the two residences, allowing for plenty of privacy.
