A magnificent country house thought to date back in part to the 1600s will be ideal for a commuter with creature comforts in mind. The Round House is situated in the pretty village of Bayford, approximately five miles from Hertford from where you can catch the Moorgate train and arrive in London in less than 45 minutes.

Two sets of timber gates give access to a sweeping gravelled driveway with room for several cars. The house benefits from uninterrupted views over its own paddocks and woodland and out across a wooded skyline. Carefully maintained formal gardens, an all weather tennis court and a beautiful conservatory make the garden at The Round House a delightful place to spend time.

The accommodation comprises five reception rooms, four bedrooms including a substantial dining room overlooked by a galleried landing, four bathrooms and a Lodge with further kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and bathroom.
