Overall Description

This is an exceptional Victorian townhouse set out over four floors in one of the more popular streets in East Hertford situated just a short walk from the town centre, local parks, and Hertford East Station. The property was imaginatively redesigned and refurbished by a former owner who added a stunning glass vaulted atrium to the back of the kitchen and fitted a new central staircase giving the property a blended mix of period character and contemporary style. On the top two floors are three bedrooms and a large modern bathroom, the third bedroom with a Juliet balcony overlooking the room below and garden beyond. The basement is currently used as a living area/study but with scope to reconfigure for use as further bedrooms/bathrooms if so desired. The ground floor and basement are both large and airy light filled spaces; with open-plan living with the former having separate sitting/dining and kitchen areas with the impressive glass atrium to the rear and the basement having triple glazed doors out to the courtyard garden to the front. The property has plenty of interesting features, such as the atrium, open staircase, wooden flooring and two fireplaces on the ground floor, but also offers buyers a chance to add their own stamp and personalise to their own tastes. The back garden has been recently fitted with composite decking and is landscaped to be low-maintenance and to act as a surprisingly private and secluded entertainment space with plenty of sunshine. This unique substantial property is well worth a look so why not book a time slot at our Open Day on Saturday 9th October.

Location

The property is located in a Conservation Area on one of the best streets on the east side of Hertford, a few minutes walk from Hertford East Station and Tesco, a five minute walk from the town centre, and a short drive from the A10, so it is very convenient and also an ideal location for those living or working locally or in London. There are also very good schools in the local area and the property sits within the sought after SG13 catchment area, so perfect for families wishing to send their children to the better local schools. Hertford has a very good range of local facilities such as shops, restaurants, and supermarkets (Tesco and M&S are both walking distance), yet is also an attractive and very pleasant place to live, which (along with its excellent transport links) is why it is so popular with young families and commuters. The town is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside and has a wide range of sporting and leisure pursuits close to hand, including Hartham Common with its riverside walks, Activity Centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
