Overall Description

This handsome and much loved Victorian detached house, dating back to 1860, has been in the same family since 1972 and represents a rare chance to create your dream home in a glorious setting opposite the green in this sought after village. The house has considerable potential as, although it requires modernisation it has great scope for improvement and perhaps even further extension (subject to planning). However, it is already a spacious and flexible family home with its current layout. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and a fourth bedroom and second bathroom downstairs. In terms of receptions, there are two sitting rooms, a dining room, kitchen with utility and store room. The property has been extended twice over the years, the last time in the 1960's when a single storey rear extension added what could become a downstairs annexe with sitting room, bedroom, bathroom and room for a kitchen if so desired - or just give further accommodation to the main house as it was with the current owners. The gardens are mature and private and there is plenty of parking on the gravel driveway as well as a double garage with electric doors.

Location

The property sits opposite the village green in the centre of the popular village of Hertford Heath just a mile or two from Hertford and close to the A10. The village is a thriving local community (see the excellent village web site www.hertfordheath.gov.uk) with good local facilities including village shop, village hall, church, garage, four good pubs, and plenty of sports and social clubs. Hertford East Station and the A10 are a short drive away, so it is ideal for commuters. There are very good schools in the local area (the excellent Hertford Heath JMI is just down the road from the house and the village is also the home of the Haileybury Public School). The property sits within the sought after SG13 catchment area, so perfect for families wishing to send their children to the better local schools (Simon Balle, Richard Hale and Presdales). The town of Hertford has a very good range of local facilities such as shops, restaurants, and supermarkets, as you would expect from a county town. The village is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside and has a wide range of sporting and leisure pursuits close to hand, including Hartham Common in Hertford with its riverside walks, Activity Centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
