This extensive, luxury family home is in an idyllic countryside setting midway between Ware and Hertford. Set in 2 acres of gardens with stunning views.
The house itself is an individually designed but beautifully proportioned period building, mostly on one storey, that features four bedrooms, two with ensuites, as well as a large living room and a kitchen/breakfast/family room, a study and a second family room.
The elegant front door leads into a long, wooden-floored hall serving most of the rooms. Straight in front is the study, while a door to the right leads into the large living room, featuring an impressive fireplace, which offers plenty of room for either family time or entertaining.
Beyond lies the kitchen/breakfast/family room, which features timber beams in the ceiling. The modern kitchen is well equipped and includes a central island unit, while the area beyond offers plenty of space for a family table and a seating area. It leads into a utility room. A cloakroom/WC is also close by.
In the other direction, the family bathroom and three of the four bedrooms lead off the hall. The bathroom features both a bath and a shower, while the ensuite in the master bedroom has the same facilities. The Master Bedroom itself is bright and spacious with direct access to the garden as does Bedroom Two. Bedrooms Two and Three also offer plenty of room for a double bed. All bedrooms feature extensive fitted wardrobes.
The double garage has been converted to a large family room. This is apart from much of the house, so it could alternatively be turned into a play area for the children or a games room for the whole family. Stairs lead up to Bedroom Four, a large attic-style room above the family room with an ensuite shower-room and generous fitted wardrobes.
Most of the ground floor rooms have fantastic views and some open onto a terrace at the rear, from which steps lead down to a larger paved patio. From here, the garden spreads down in tiers. Besides lawns, the garden is extensively blessed with trees and shrubs, as well as a water feature. From the terrace and the patio, you can see far across the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside — an ideal setting to entertain your guests, or just to relax on a warm summer evening.
The front of the house, which features trees and shrubbery, offers parking space for a number of cars.
The Sycamores is part of a small, exclusive and secluded community in the countryside, but it offers quick and easy access to both Ware and Hertford. Both are upmarket towns, with charming high street shopping as well as a choice of supermarkets, a wide range of leisure facilities, and stations with frequent train services to London. There’s a good choice of popular primary and secondary schools locally.
A very individual house, The Sycamores has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The bright, comfortable rooms will captivate you, and then you’ll go outside. That’s when you’ll really fall in love.
