Flint House Hertfordshire, HP4


A striking, architect-designed location house constructed in 2019, cut into an agricultural setting overlooking the Chiltern Hills AONB. Constructed using steel frame and concrete, with larch and flint cladding and extensive glazing.

Set in a quiet and secluded one-acre site on the top of a hill, with woodlands to the rear, yet just a 10 minute walk to Berkhamsted’s train station with direct links to London (35 mins).

This 400sqm location property in Hertfordshire has some of the UK’s largest panes of glass installed in a house, at up to 5 metres high. Many of these are sliding and the sash window in the master suite is automated. The glazed elevation to the rear wraps around the house for over 30 metres.

Inside, the house is part two-storey, with broken-plan kitchen and living areas downstairs as well as a study, playroom and guest suite. A see-through wood burner links the double-height TV snug with the living area. Upstairs there are a further three bedrooms including a sizeable master suite. Floors are polished concrete downstairs and timber/carpet upstairs.

Particular investment has been made with the lighting scheme and blinds/curtains – both controlled using a Lutron system.

The bespoke kitchen opens out one one level onto the south-facing patio. There is a further secluded patio to the side of the house with sunset views. Beyond this, the majority of the garden is lawn, with a storage building to the front and garden chalet/playhouse to the rear. There is ample parking on the private gravel driveway.
