Move To A House That’s Fit For A Queen, Literally!
Fox Moving & Storage feel that if you are going to move house then move house in style and there is nothing as stylish as Grade I listed Mynde Park, frequented by the Queen. Set within 1,180 acres of Hertfordshire it also commands a royal asking price of £15million. The manor house has just gone on the open market and the buyers say that there are a number of potential buyers, mainly from foreign investors.
The estate is so big that it will take you four hours just to view it as there is so much to take in. in 2003 the Queen held a picnic here for 3,000 guests, located in rural Hertfordshire. The estate agents in charge of selling the property, Farms and Estates for Knight Frank, say that it is truly a unique property and probably one of the finest in all of the country. They confirm that a lot of the interest is coming from international clients from all over the world.
The ground floor of the Manor House is taken up by the King’s Hall, which is in fact the dining room. A leading architectural historian describes it as the “finest room in Hertfordshire”. Elsewhere in the property there are twelve bedrooms, of which ten are en-suite, a library, study, morning room, drawing room, billiards room, games room, two kitchens and a number of cellars.
The estate is located near the village of Much Dewchurch and the London Office of Knight Frank, who are handling the sale, say that inside the house it is “deceptively compact”. There is also a separate five bedroom house called Little Mynde within the grounds, an entrance lodge and six cottages.
As you approach the manor you go up a mile long drive taking in views of the swimming pool, gardens, lake and of course the stunning Hertfordshire countryside which surrounds the estate. Mynde Park is said to date back to 1350 and was once owned by Walter Pye who was the attorney-general to Charles I, so the house is steeped in English history. Currently the owners are Caroline and Audley Twiston-Davies, whose daughter Antonia was one of Princess Diana’s bridesmaids. They acquired it ten years ago and spent four years and millions of pounds restoring it to it’s former glory. The owner says that is it’s history and grounds which make the property unique and the next owner can be master of all that they survey.
Fox Moving & Storage will gladly help the next owner move into such a beautiful residence.
