Exceptional Nash Style Villa


Woodlands lies on The Ridgeway, a prime address in Hertfordshire benefitting from excellent communications by road and rail. Cuffley village (2.5 miles away) provides a selection of local shops, a doctor's surgery and primary school. More comprehensive facilities can be found at nearby Hatfield (about 5 miles distant) or Potters Bar (2 miles away).

Fast and frequent trains leave Potters Bar reaching London Kings Cross in 19 minutes or alternatively from Cuffley reaching Moorgate in 35 minutes. The property is ideally located for access to the national motorway network via the M25 or the A1(M). Heathrow Airport is just 35 miles away and Central London 20 miles.

There is an excellent selection of schools in the district including Lochinver and St Joseph's prep schools, Queenswood secondary school for girls and Haileybury College.


Constructed about 45 years ago on the site of an older house, Woodlands has been built in the style of a Nash Villa. The house is finished in a white render under a slate roof and is beautifully set with views over the mature parkland and the lake to the mixed woodland beyond.

Internally, Woodlands combines light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation comprising five bedroom suites on the first floor. A principal feature is the majestic reception hall with a sweeping galleried staircase and double height bay window. Accessed from the hall are the three main reception rooms and study, each elegantly proportioned with views over the terrace to the parkland beyond.

Outside is the guest cottage situated close to the house and reached by a covered cloister, providing three bedrooms. There are two further cottages together with the traditionally designed coach house which incorporates the games room, extensive garaging and storage.

The gardens and grounds provide a tranquil and mature setting for the house. Close by is the walled garden growing a selection of vegetables, fruit and house flowers. There is also a conservatory. The swimming pool is situated in a sheltered area beside the house beyond which is the floodlit tennis court.

To the south is an open expanse of mature parkland sloping gently down to the lake with a central island all surrounded by protective belt of deciduous and evergreen
woodland. On the north side of the house are three level paddocks adjoining further woodland forming part of The Great Wood.
