Constructed of handsome stuccoed elevations under a pitched slate roof, Thorne Barton Hall is an elegant family home of Victorian origins. More recently, a substantial garage wing has been added with further accommodation above. Internally the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first floor. Of particular note is the drawing room which has beautiful proportions and like all the principal reception rooms, good high ceilings. The drawing room is centred on an attractive open fireplace and enjoys outstanding views over the gardens, grounds and the Chiltern Hills beyond.
On the first floor the bedrooms are all light and airy. There is currently a separate, self-contained flat which could be incorporated back into the principal accommodation, if required. The garage extension has provided an extensively large
first floor room currently used for storage but suitable for a full sized snooker table.
Outside, the gardens and grounds provide a charming, tranquil setting studded with a selection of specimen deciduous and evergreen trees. An ornamental pond provides an attractive focal point, beyond which is the ‘all-weather’ tennis court. To the rear and side of the house is a further area of well-maintained lawn with a magnificent copper beech tree, together with the swimming pool set in a paved surround. There is a range of timber clad outbuildings providing useful storage for garden machinery situated to the south of the house with a concrete hard standing. The gravelled driveway leads to a large parking and turning area to the front of the house.
Situated high in the Chiltern Hills, Thorne Barton Hall lies within beautiful, mature grounds and has outstanding views over the wooded valleys to the west. The Hall is situated near the market town of Berkhamsted which provides good local amenities including a variety of shops including a Waitrose and Marks & Spencer Simply Food, a selection of excellent schools, restaurants, numerous cafes and public houses.
Communications are excellent by both road and rail. There is a train station in Berkhamsted with a direct service into London Euston taking approximately 31 minutes. A mainline station in Amersham, only 3.5 miles away, offers a direct and frequent service into London Marylebone from 39 minutes. Chesham Underground Station is just over a mile away from Thorne
Barton Hall and is served by the Metropolitan line. Heathrow Airport is 28 miles distant.
