Whitestones Hero 1

Whitestones Heart of England

A contemporary retreat that makes a splash

Smart, modern…and fun! If you’re looking for a luxury pad for you and your besties, a happy hideaway to treat your family, or a business bolthole, Whitestones in Hertfordshire is just the place.

Step inside a world of stylish monochrome offset by warm hues of oak. Open plan is the only way to go in this contemporary retreat, but with some fun twists, like the sunken seating area, 75-inch TV screen, Sonos sound system and iPad controlled multi-coloured LED lights. The sleek kitchen, with its Elica NikolaTesla hob, hot water tap for instant hot drinks and obligatory air-fryer, is an exemplar of form and function in harmony. You’ll be perfectly happy to be chef, with six of your best people lined up along the marble top island to chop and chat.

And that’s all before you discover the outside space. Here the heated pool, gym, business area and fire pit reside. A covered outdoor kitchen, BBQ hut and games room take away any weather worries, while the annex contains a pool table and living quarters for two lucky people. With a further five cool bedrooms in the main house, bedtime is guaranteed to be restful, and there are enough luxuriously appointed bathrooms to avoid arguments.

For days out, Three Lakes is just up the road, with golf, fishing, Zorbs, a play barn, and more. And the ‘more’ includes a floating assault course! For a slower pace, take a ramble along the River Lea or afternoon tea at nearby Hanbury Manor. Ware High Street is within walking distance and London is under an hour by train.
