Overall Description

This handsome detached property was built in 1952 and still has many original character features including 50's style fireplaces and parquet flooring. The property offers buyers the opportunity to create a modern family home to their own tastes in a pleasant child friendly location opposite the school and has potential for extension either into the loft space, as others have in the area, and/or to the rear and side (subject to the usual consents). There are currently three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, with a hallway, sitting room, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor. The carriage driveway gives plenty of parking to the front and there is an attached garage. The gardens are larger than others in the area as the owners bought an extra piece of land at the bottom of the garden some years back, currently housing three sheds and a greenhouse. The property is being sold with no onward chain.

Location

The property sits in a desirable family-friendly location in the village of Goffs Oak just across the road from the well regarded Junior Mixed Infant School. There are other good schools in the local area including Goffs secondary school, St Mary's High School as well as Queenswood girl's school and Lochinver House boy's school in Potters Bar, so it is an ideal place to bring up a family. Goffs Oak is popular with commuters as it is surrounded by Hertfordshire countryside, yet very conveniently placed for transport links into London, just a few miles from the M25/A10 and just a five minute drive from Cuffley station with regular trains to to London Moorgate/Kings Cross. Goffs Oak has a good selection of local shops including a supermarket and Post Office and there are further shops at Cuffley and at the Brookfield Shopping Centre in Cheshunt. There are good sports facilities locally including golf, tennis and horse riding and plenty of footpaths for walking and cycling including through Cuffley Great Woods which is just up the road.
