A huge and handsome 10-bed house in Hemel Hempstead has hit the market for £2.5 million.

The Grade II listed property, known as Pouchen End Hall, boats over 8,000 sq.ft of space with extensive grounds totalling approximately 6.57 acres.

According to the listing by Mulberries, the property is thought to date back to the mid-1500s and underwent a comprehensive remodel in 1864.

It has been in the possession of the current owners for over 20 years and is described as a "truly unique property".

The house, situated in the rural hamlet of Pouchen End, has a detached triple garage, an indoor swimming pool and is surrounded by mature woodlands.

Despite its rural location, Hemel Hempstead train station is only 1.1 miles away, and the desirable market town Berkhamsted just 2.3 miles away, offering "the best of both worlds" for potential buyers.

Upon entering the property, buyers can expect to find a hallway with exposed brick and timber walls, leading directly into two of the six reception rooms.

The family room, complete with ornate carvings and a fireplace, is said to boast a cosy and traditional atmosphere.

The dining room showcases a large fireplace and a log-burning stove, which Mulberries says is "perfect for entertaining guests".

The drawing room further enhances the entertainment capabilities of the home, with an abundance of natural light and views across the valley.

The main kitchen is equipped with a four-oven Aga and a breakfast area, while a secondary kitchen and lounge can serve extended-staying guests.
