Seller Insight We purchased Number 4 The Old Quarters eighteen years ago and it is the perfect combination of a magnificent home within a beautiful setting,” say the owners. “The Hall is accessed via a long winding private driveway with parkland on either side, gently turning to reveal the Hall itself. It’s true to say that every day, we are still captivated by the beauty and charm of the drive as we journey to and from the Hall.” “Over the years we have gradually restored the Georgian character and charm of our home, whilst subtly incorporating the everyday needs for modern living. We’ve used heritage paint colours throughout; all of the beautiful Georgian-style sash windows have been fully renovated by Ventrolla and can now simply be unclipped and removed for ease of maintenance; the bathroom has been updated in period style including the addition of a freestanding cast-iron ball & claw-foot bath; and we added SMART home technology to control the heating and hot water accessed remotely with a tablet or smartphone. The biomass boiler system benefits from the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme which provides quarterly payments based on the amount of heat generated, until 2035. We maintained our ‘eco-friendly’ restoration with the installation of sheep’s wool insulation which, with its unique breathability, absorbs and releases moisture without reducing thermal performance, and helps preserve the surrounding timbers,” the owners say. “The parkland is a truly magnificent feature of the property, landscaped in 1790 by Humphrey Repton - an eminent landscape gardener who was regarded as the successor to Capability Brown. Extending to approximately 14 acres, it is a beautiful and tranquil setting, including a private all-weather tennis court, a woodland walk, a game larder, an enclosed walled garden with a variety of fruit trees, an old well and a herb garden area. Two follies bookend the path of what was known as the ‘ladies parading ground,’ and as you open the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ door of one of these follies, the landscape transforms from a formal tree lined walk, into the open undulating countryside framed by a magnificent chestnut tree.” “What will we miss most? Absolutely everything,” say the owners. “It’s been a wonderful place to call home and it’ll be extremely difficult to find anything else that even comes close.”* * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.

Each room has its own unique character and charm, but if I had to choose a favourite it would probably be the family room,” says the owner. “It has amazing views, a very warm and welcoming feel, and when the fire is roaring away on a cold winter’s evening there really is no better place to be.”

We’re surrounded by so much natural beauty and it’s incredibly peaceful here. Hazells Hall has a rich history and benefits from around 14 acres of shared landscaped gardens, originally designed by the eminent landscape gardener, Humphry Repton. Another huge benefit is the location, the rail station is just a few minutes down the road, so it’s possible to be in central London within 40 minutes, and Luton and Stansted Airports are within easy reach.”
