Located in one of the most sought after roads in Harpenden, this family home is set in a plot of over one third of an acre behind a tall hedge which provides a high degree of privacy.
Built in the 1950's with accommodation extending to 2100sq ft, the house has been thoughtfully designed and extended to maximise the natural light and as such makes for a bright and welcoming home.
The large entrance hall has a useful cloaks cupboard and an attractive and practical oak engineered floor.
The sitting room is a very good size and has a contemporary fireplace providing a stylish focal point. French doors open out onto the garden terrace which spans the rear of the house making for a perfect entertaining area.
The well-conceived kitchen breakfast room has been designed by a local company, Sculleries, and has a good range of built in cabinets and integrated appliances arranged around a central granite topped island unit. There is a large breakfast area which overlooks the garden through a set of French doors. Set to one side of the kitchen is a fitted utility room with access both to the rear garden and the garage.
There is a large study, which overlooks the front and is kept beautifully bright by two sets of windows. This could make an ideal playroom or family room as a sliding door opens onto the side terrace.
On the first floor landing, a door leads out onto a sizable balcony, which is a perfect place to sit and catch the morning sun.
The master bedroom has a neat en-suite shower room, windows on two sides and overlooks the gardens to the rear.
There is a large guest bedroom overlooking the front garden which has the added benefit of its own wash basin.
Two further bedrooms complete the sleeping accommodation and there is a large family bathroom, which has been fitted with a separate shower cubicle and whirlpool bath.
The gardens are beautifully presented and are a true testament to the care and attention the owners have paid to it over the years. With tall hedges and mature trees, both deciduous and evergreen, privacy is maintained even during the depths of winter. With clever and thoughtful planting the garden manages to catch the eye with seasonal colour throughout the year ranging from blowsy blooms on the mature rhododendrons to cheerful splashes of yellow and white in the spring bulbs.
The terrace, perfect for entertaining provides a great space for a large table and chairs, leaving enough room for a couple of arm chairs and outdoor sofa set.
At the bottom of the garden, hidden from view by greenery, is a large garden shed and compost area ideal for the busy gardener.
To the front of the house is a carriage driveway which is gravelled and provides space for at least 5 cars to park. There is a small lawned area adjacent bordered by a tall hedge, bristling bamboo and mature evergreen shrubs.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
