Delisted

A £7.9 million Hertfordshire mansion that isn’t quite what it seems

 

Hadley Lodge at Hadley Common in Hertfordshire is not quite what it seems. Hidden behind a coach house complete with clock tower is not a classic 18th century house but instead a modern, Lutyens-style house that was built in the early 1990s.

Delisted in 1988 after an earlier 18th century on the house burnt down in 1981, Hadley Lodge has the look of a much earlier house but has been designed with modern living in mind. Standing in some 7 acres, the main house is 7,168 square foot in size and includes 5 reception rooms along a family kitchen to the ground floor and 7 bedroom suites spread over the first and second floors.

Across a courtyard, Hadley Lodge’s coach house has been converted to provide a 3-bedroomed 1,741 square foot cottage and a 2,748 square foot garage and games room complex. Planning permission was granted for a swimming pool, cinema and gym in 2002 within the property’s walled garden. This has been part constructed and could be completed by an incoming purchaser.

 

Having been for sale at prices as high as £8,950,000 in 2011 and as low as £7,000,000 in 2012, Hadley Lodge is now on the market through Statons for £7,900,000.
