Overall Description

This is a most handsome detached Edwardian residence in a gloriously peaceful rural setting yet just a short drive from excellent road and rail links to London, local schools and other amenities. The property has a great deal of period character throughout and enjoys views from most rooms over its beautifully landscaped mature gardens. This is an ideal home for a growing family with ample space to spread out. Four reception rooms are on the ground floor not including the kitchen/breakfast room, and there is also a separate office and utility. Upstairs are five bedrooms, the master having a large en-suite bathroom, and there is also a family bathroom with two of the bedrooms having balconies overlooking the garden. Outside there is a carriage driveway with plenty of parking space and double garage with a separate workshop. The gardens are an utter delight and well stocked with spring bulbs and flowering shrubs to maintain interest all year. There is also a tennis court and good-sized and well protected vegetable garden with raised beds and paved surrounds. If you are looking to escape the pollution and noise of city living and bring up your family somewhere quieter and where you can breathe in country air then this delightful family home is well worth a visit.

Location

The property is located on a quiet country lane between Datchworth and Burnham Green amongst beautiful Hertfordshire countryside with excellent walking, cycling and, should you wish, riding on your door-step. The house is a short drive from both Welwyn North and Watton At Stone stations, both of which have regular services to London Kings Cross and Moorgate respectively. The property is also easily accessible from the A1 and A10. The village of Datchworth has a village shop, tea rooms, three pubs (a fourth in Bulls Green), village hall, and thriving cricket/rugby clubs - all within walking distance - and there are pretty footpaths heading in a number of directions so you can walk the dog, or yourself, without having to use the roads. There are excellent shops and other amenities in Welwyn Garden City, less than ten minutes drive away, including the John Lewis Department Store, Howard Centre, Debenhams, Waitrose and Sainsburys and the picturesque market town of Hertford is a similar distance away. There are also very good schools at all levels in the area including Sherrardswood School, Oaklands School, Heath Mount and Haileybury College. The property is close to sporting and other facilities including the Gosling Sports Centre, and Brocket Hall Golf Club. There are pretty riverside meadows and a picnic area (ideal for sunbathing and paddling with little ones) on the river Mimram at Panshanger and the local area is known for its beautiful countryside with its many footpaths and bridleways.
