Overall Description

This property is the ultimate family home for professional families wanting to move out of town to enjoy a better quality of life but not to forgo every modern luxury. Bought brand new in 1996 by its current owners, it has been completely transformed by the substantial extension to the rear, added in 2009, that has created a magnificent bespoke kitchen, dining and family area with large double tri-fold doors opening out into the attractive landscaped gardens. This room is very much the heart of this superb home but there is so much more to appreciate, from the lovely large open entrance hall, to the three further reception rooms including spacious sitting room with limestone surround gas fire, study with quality fitted office furniture and TV room, fully wired for family entertainment. Upstairs there is a large master bedroom suite, second guest en-suite bedroom and three further bedrooms with family bathroom. The back garden is around a quarter of an acre, facing south and south-west with a mature Horse Chestnut tree at its centre piece, decking and patio areas for entertaining and the house has parking for six plus cars and a double garage. If you want a truly special family home close to local transport links and schools, then this property could be for you.

Location

This very well appointed family home sits in a cul-de-sac of other similar detached properties in a tucked away location in Sherrardswood Park on the edge of the popular commuter town of Welwyn Garden City. This house offers the best of both worlds as it is under a mile from Old Welwyn, a picturesque village with proper pubs, excellent restaurants, local shops and even the remains of a Roman Baths, and yet is also a twenty minute walk from the centre of Welwyn Garden City which has excellent family restaurants and shopping including the Howard Shopping Centre, John Lewis department store, and Waitrose. There is very good public and private schooling in the area including Sherrardswood School and Monks Walk and Knighstfield Schools (both of which are within walking distance), and the independent schools in St. Albans and Hertford are close by. The area has very good transport links: Welwyn Garden City station (Kings Cross from under 25 minutes) is a 20 minute walk away, Welwyn North is five minutes by car and the A1 (J6) is less than a mile away. The area is ideal for busy families with a wide selection of sporting and other leisure activities such as golf, tennis and riding to name but a few.
