Overall Description

This is a substantial Edwardian family home, built around 1910 as a school, and subsequently subdivided into two residential homes of which this is the larger - so it is clearly not detached. The property offers large and flexible family accommodation in a lovely setting and with the added benefit of direct access to Cuffley Great Woods from the bottom of the garden. There are three reception rooms, two with fireplaces, a good-sized kitchen/breakfast room, utility, cloakroom and conservatory on the ground floor. On the next two floors are five bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms as well as a family bathroom, cloakroom and roof terrace with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Outside there is a double garage with adjoining games room which might even be converted into annexe accommodation (subject to consent). There is ample off-street parking on the gravel driveway in the front garden which, like the back garden, is attractively landscaped. If you are looking for a home close to excellent schools and road and rail links then this property is well worth a look.

Location

The property sits in a prominent position on the highly prestigious Ridgeway in the Hertfordshire village of Northaw. Northaw is a small and attractive village with church, Village Hall, Primary School and two pubs that is popular with commuters as it is a five minute drive from Cuffley railway station with a regular service to London (Finsbury Park, Kings Cross and Moorgate) and ten minutes from Potters Bar Station (fast trains to Kings Cross). It is also only a short drive to the A10 and M25 motorway. Cuffley has a good range of local shops including a Doctors' Surgery and Dentist, with well regarded public and state schools at all levels in the vicinity including Cuffley School (nursery and primary). There is a lively village community offering numerous family activities and Clubs, which include tennis, football and rugby as well as an amateur dramatics society. Furzefield Leisure Centre is just a ten minute drive away providing a 33 metre pool and a separate baby and toddler pool and has a well established Swimming Club. The village is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside and woodland (including Cuffley Great Wood), and is criss crossed by footpaths and bridleways, so it is perfect for walking and cycling.
