A restored Grade II Listed five bedroom Georgian house with large south facing garden and detached double garage within a gated walled courtyard
Guide Price £2,000,000
Located in the heart of Boxmoor, Green End House is a beautifully restored Georgian property. The house (Grade II Listed) was formerly owned by the Saint Rose of Lima Association, a Catholic order who built St Rose’s Infant School and occupied an extended Green End House as the St Mary’s Dominican Sisters Convent, where the school’s teachers lived until the late 1990s.
Ash Mill purchased the former convent in 2015 and commissioned Messenger Construction, specialists in restoration projects, having obtained the necessary planning and listed building consents. The 1960s extensions and alterations have been removed and, in their place, a handmade kitchen/day room and dining room have been added as well as a generous double garage workshop. The rest of the house has been substantially renovated and while the original period features have been restored to their former glory, all the services and fixtures and fittings have been renewed.
Green End House is accessed via a new entrance off Green End Road (shared with St Mary’s Place) through its own walled courtyard secured with electric gates. The property lies just a few minutes’ walk to the village centre with its collection of shops, pubs and restaurants.
The mainline railway station is an eight minute walk over the Grand Union Canal providing access to London Euston in less than half an hour. Boxmoor enjoys excellent access to the national road network (A41) and is served by regular public buses to Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and beyond.
Boxmoor is a village near Hemel Hempstead which has its own distinct identity and character. While larger town amenities are located about half a mile to the east, St John’s Road offers a good selection of local independent retailers including a pharmacy, post office, off-licence and florist. There are several local public houses and cafes including the Fishery Inn and Fishery Wharf cafés which overlook the canal. Boxmoor derives its name from the Box tree which is linked with ‘mor’, signifying a marsh. The ancient meadowlands are still a feature of the locality and today are under the stewardship of the Box Moor Trust (Est.1594). There are many wonderful walks across the meadowlands, along the Grand Union Canal and the Bulbourne river into the delightful Chiltern countryside.
