Overall Description

This substantial semi-detached property started off life as a farmworkers' cottage in the early 1900's but was significantly extended at the start of the 21st century by a previous owner and then completely modernised over the eleven years that the current owner has lived there. The result is a stunning contemporary family home that has every modern luxury, including superb new fitted kitchen and large master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite - while retaining some of the original period character and charm. The house has plenty of space for a growing family with the lovely large kitchen/breakfast room definitely the heart of the home, two further large receptions and four double bedrooms, en-suite and luxury main bathroom. The setting is also idyllic with open-countryside to the side and rear of the property and lovely rural views especially from the master bedroom and the garden, which has been attractively landscaped and is now an ideal outside space to relax or entertain friends and family. If you are yearning to escape city life for a more rural lifestyle as part of a village community then this property could be just what you are looking for.

Location

This superb large and modern family home sits on the edge of the sought-after village of Essendon. Essendon is a picturesque Hertfordshire village that is also a thriving local community, with the St Mary's parish church at its centre, the Essendon CofE Primary School, Village Hall, Rose and Crown pub and both the Essendon Country Club and golf course and Candlestick pub/restaurant on its periphery. The village is popular with commuters because it is so convenient for local transport links with the A414 providing easy access to the A1 and M25 and a range of local railway stations including Potters Bar and Hatfield (fast trains to Kings Cross), Hertford North (Moorgate) and Hertford East (Liverpool Street). As well as the village primary school there are excellent public and private schools at all levels in the locality including Simon Balle and Richard Hale in Hertford and Dame Alice Owens, Lochinver and Stormont in Potters Bar. Potters Bar and Hertford both have very good shops and other facilities and the Galleria Shopping Centre in Hatfield and Howard Centre and John Lewis in Welwyn Garden City are also just a short drive away. The village is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside with lots of footpaths and bridleways to explore and is only a short walk from the river Lea.
