A rare opportunity to acquire a unique, elegant, light, and spacious family home occupying one-third of an acre in the much sought-after south side of Hertford, located at the end of a peaceful close and yet only a 5-minute level walk into the centre of town.
The exterior of the property has been re-clad to a modern New England style and the interior of the property is light and airy throughout. All the rooms are well proportioned and the property is surrounded by wonderful grounds making a beautiful home ideal for entertaining. On the south-east side are woodlands and farmland, one of Hertford’s Green Fingers, that abound with wildlife.
Coming through into the entrance hall this then opens into the dining room, downstairs cloakroom, kitchen and lounge, the majority of which have been furnished with Italian tile flooring.
The dining room is of a good size and perfect for entertaining and the bespoke kitchen accommodates an extensive range of modern fitted units with granite worktops, 6-burner range cooker with double oven and a double butlers sink. The dining room opens into a conservatory, ideal for more informal dining, which looks out over the back garden and swimming pool and gives access to the large patio area.
The bright spacious lounge, with French doors that also opens onto the patio, features a unique rotating central wood burning stove. From this room are double doors leading into the large family room with a vaulted ceiling and a fireplace with a further wood-burner.
The extensive patio area, that features a good size heated swimming pool, follows through naturally into the depth of the extensively landscaped south-facing garden with beautiful trees, shrubs and flower borders offering different colours throughout the season.
From the hallway the stairs lead up to a landing giving access to the four bedrooms, three of which are good-sized double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a well-equipped en-suite. In addition to this there is a family bathroom with bath/shower facilities.
The front of the property offers off-street parking for 3/4 cars. At the back of the house is a garden shed with power points and lighting, and the pump house which heats the swimming pool.
This is the first time in 24 years that the property has been on the market. The property is away from the hustle and bustle and located in an ideal/enviable position for all the top schools ; and commuters benefit from two nearby mainline railway stations into London. Journey time 50 mins.
