This stunning four-bedroom detached family home stands facing out over parkland within the exclusive gated Balls Park Development.
Located on the edge of Hertford, within the gorgeous setting of 67 acres of managed parkland, this home is designed for open plan living and entertainment on a large scale.
The electric gated entrance is private and provides parking and access to the garden.
The main part of the house is on two floors, with good size bedrooms, while an extensive single-storey ground floor houses the stunning lounge/diner. The ground floor also features a spacious kitchen/diner, as well as a study and a family room, while the first floor houses the family bathroom, as well an ensuite master bedroom and two other double bedrooms.
On entering through the front door, you find yourself in a spacious hallway, with a WC beside the door. Immediately to the left, you find the spacious kitchen/diner. This immaculate modern space offers built-in appliances, including a gas hob on the central island, and extensive working and storage space. The dining area at the far end provides plenty of room for family meals, with two windows strategically placed to offer plenty of light.
In the opposite direction, the study and family room open off the hall. The study features built-in desk and storage furniture, while the family room offers a flexible space that could be used as a playroom, separate TV room or bedroom four.
Beyond these lies the large, luxurious lounge/diner which is part carpeted with extensive overhead lighting. At one end is a timber-floored area that can be used either as a dining area or an activity area. The lounge’s most stunning feature, however, is a six-panel floor-to-ceiling window with French doors in the middle, which offers a panoramic view over the park beyond and access to the garden.
Stairs lead up from the hallway to the comfortable first floor, featuring the three bedrooms and the large family bathroom, featuring a combined bathtub/shower.
The master bedroom is spacious and features an ensuite and French doors with Juliet style balcony which look out across the distant view. Bedrooms two and three offer plenty of room, with windows letting in plenty of sunlight. All three bedrooms are well equipped with fitted cupboards.
Nice touches include underfloor heating to all floors, ceiling mounted speakers, alarm and security camera to the front.
The garden at the front, where a gate opens into a quiet lane, features a patio for relaxing or entertaining, with a perfect view over fields and woodland. There are also lawns, shrubbery and a magnificent tree, while a paved area provides off-road parking.
This is a unique location, in that it’s both in the country and within walking distance of the town centre. Two secondary schools with excellent reputations are a short distance away, and there’s a good choice of quality primary schools nearby.
Hertford is a sought-after location, offering a wide variety of shopping, restaurants and bars as well as social and leisure facilities, ranging from a theatre to a leisure centre. It’s served by two stations with frequent services to London, while from Harrison Lane you can access the major artery of the A10 without needing to go through the town.
