Overall Description

This is an impressive Regency townhouse, built in 1823, that has been comprehensively and sympathetically modernised by its current owner while retaining its original Georgian character: high ceilings with original plasterwork, grand turned staircase, well-proportioned reception rooms, open fireplaces and sash windows with wooden shutters. The result is a very modern and practical family home with a sense of its original grandeur in an excellent central location so an easy walk from local schools, the town centre and both stations. The property is substantially larger than others in the same row and has two elegant and good-sized receptions on the ground floor along with a lovely large entrance hall and recently fitted kitchen with French doors out to the walled garden. The basement has a large family sitting room as well as a laundry room. The four double bedrooms and two newly fitted bathrooms are on the top two floors with the master and guest bedrooms being particularly spacious. The property has two off-street parking spaces to the front and the owner has had the south facing walled garden to the rear attractively landscaped with two large York stone patios making excellent entertainment space with well stocked flower beds around the edges of a small lawn. If you are looking for a beautifully presented family home that's just a stone's throw from everything that Hertford has to offer then this property could be for you.

Location

This property sits in a most convenient position, around five minute's walk from the town centre and Hertford North station and around ten minute's walk from Hertford East station. Hertford, the historic county town of Hertfordshire, has a very good range of facilities including shops, sports clubs and also has many excellent restaurants, pubs, etc. Hertford also has excellent schools at all levels many of which are walking distance from the house. Further shopping is available close by at Hatfield's Galleria and Welwyn Garden City (John Lewis, Debenhams). Hertford is surrounded by pretty countryside and is popular with commuters due to its excellent transport links, with two railway stations providing regular services to London (Kings Cross and Liverpool Street) in around 40-50 minutes. The road links are also excellent with the A10 leading to the M25, and the A414 heading to the A1. For more information (and an excellent town map) go to www.hertford.net.
