Take a look around this 7-bedroom house in Markyate on the market for £2.75million

And Capability Brown designed its gardens!

Steeped in history, oozing with elegance and sat over 11 acres of land, No 10 Cheverell’s House is an amazing property, currently on the market with Savills for £2,750,000. This prestigious house is on the cusp of the idyllic village of Markyate, bordering Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, offering views of the beautiful countryside.

It was built in 1706 as the Dower House for the Sir Edward Sebright’s Beechwood Estate. It was the family’s home for over 260 years and was even visited by Queen Mary during her reign. While the majority of the focus will be on the house itself, its grounds have a connection to the renowned landscape architect and gardener, Capability Brown. He drew up proposals for the landscaping in 1754 and his distinctive style and character are still seen today, with examples of mature trees, including oaks, beech and Scots pines.

Property agent Lynn Ellis, from Savills in Harpenden, said: “Number 10 Cheverells House represents the major wing of what was once built as the Dower House for the Beechwood Estate. Today the property offers a great family space, with its own gated entrance and beautiful private garden. The moment you arrive you know the home is rather special. There is an immediate sense of style and grandeur, with elegant reception rooms offering plenty of light and space alongside period features including high ceilings, fluted columns and ornate fireplaces.

"There is also an impressive landing area on the first floor, off which three of the seven bedrooms can be found, including the principal suite which boasts a large ensuite with wonderful views over the gardens.”
