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.
