"We had been looking for a suitable property for nearly two years and when we first viewed Tewin Water House, we were immediately taken by the size of the rooms and the location; it felt like we were in the country, yet close to the railway station and historic towns. Its history was intriguing." says John and Helen.
"It had the wow factor, style, and was by far the best property we had viewed. We could walk to the station and access London which was ideal for us and it's a lovely walk over the fields to the local pubs. We tend to eat locally, unless we're going into London for the evening, anywhere from The Plume in Tewin to Auberge du Lac.
There are lots of local walks from the house to the surrounding villages and we enjoy spending time with our grandchildren in nearby countryside. We can attend the productions at the Barn Theatre and the Campus West cinema and often visit Hatfield House which is set in beautiful grounds and makes for an interesting day out. The local Stanborough Lakes has nature walks and orienteering trails set around the lakes and parkland."
"We have easy access to the local sports centres and we're within the catchment area for some private and good local schools. And if golf is your passion, there are some great courses at Brocket Hall, Panshanger and Mid Herts Golf club which are all close by." "Outside, we share the communal gardens where our neighbours often meet for a drink - weather permitting. We can enjoy each other's company and then go our separate ways, so there's a good community feeling but we also have our privacy. We have hosted a number of charity fund raising events here too and a particular favourite is the jazz gatherings which are held for all of the Tewin Water residents."
"The 'Summer room' is one of our favourite rooms, it is very spacious with a bright and relaxed feeling and it is this room that guests enter first. We love it and use it to entertain and have 'quiet time' with no TV. The library is our day room and once in here, guests are very reluctant to move. It is wood panelled, cosy and relaxing. At the opposite end of the house is a separate collection of rooms and we love this whole area which has a completely different feel; it's self-contained so any guests staying with us can relax knowing that we can't hear them and they can't hear us."
"We enjoy being close to the local amenities but the house still retains a lovely country feel. There is no fencing to inhibit our views and nobody knows we're here; it's an oasis of peace and tranquillity." "We've had lots of celebrations during our time here including our children's significant birthdays and two of our own! We've enjoyed piano recitals in the main hall and lots of barbecues, it is a perfect place for entertaining." "We are moving as we are downsizing and we will miss so much about living here including the people around us, the space and the unique 'country meets town' feel. Being so close to London and the motorways has contributed to the natural ease of living here and our family and friends love to visit and will miss the house as much as we will!"
