The Spencer is a 4 bedroomed property with 2 reception rooms and 2 bathrooms and full planning permission to convert the original basement into living space. It has 2 allocated parking spaces and a garage. The property forms a wing of the original Grade II listed mansion house built in 1868. Hassobury is an estate with around 20 properties, which shares communal grounds including courtyards and ponds. The Spencer fronts the main house courtyard and its back door opens onto West Court, a delightful shared courtyard.
The property has a small private garden to the front. The basement from the original property was closed up when the site was developed around 20 years ago and the current owner has now cleared the space and obtained consent for a cinema room, further reception room, bathroom and kitchenette area, together with internal stairs from the existing kitchen.
The existing living space (226sqm) has been well maintained and enjoys spacious rooms and high ceilings. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom; there is also a family bathroom and a cloakroom. The house is well proportioned with larger than average rooms. There is a very large loft area for storage – when the current owner purchased the property 14 years ago, there was permission to develop this into a bedroom suite – this has since lapsed. The heating is oil fired. The range cooker has a calor gas hob.
