Overall Description

This is a nicely presented 1950's detached family house in a quite unique position, down a long driveway off the Ware Road, so an easy walking distance to Hertford East station and the town centre, yet tucked away, quiet and extremely private. This is the sort of house that most people, even long term Hertford residents, probably have no idea is even here! The property was built with three bedrooms, a bathroom and cloakroom upstairs, though the previous owners added a fourth kids' bedroom or office off the third bedroom. Downstairs there is a spacious hallway with oak stairs, large sitting/dining room with an open fire, kitchen, cloakroom, garage and utility room. The gardens are large, mature and very private with a central lawn and secluded patio. The property is approached down a long driveway which ends in a parking and turning area. The house would appear to have good potential for adding additional accommodation either though a change of layout to incorporate the garage or by extension to side and/or rear (subject, of course, to planning permission). This property is being sold with no onward chain. We have an OPEN HOUSE booked from 10am to 11pm on Saturday 26th February, so please call to book a time slot (I'm afraid that we cannot get in before the 26th). PLEASE NOTE: Please can you avoid the temptation to have a walk up the drive other than for your allotted viewing - we need to respect the privacy of the tenants whose home it is.

Location

The property is located down a long driveway leading off the Ware Road, so within a short walk of Hertford East Station and the town centre. 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 Richard Hale, Simon Balle, Presdales to name but a few. The picturesque historical market 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, yet is also an attractive and very pleasant place to live, which (along with its excellent transport links - two train stations and easy access to A1 and M25) 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 including Hartham Common with its riverside walks, Activity Centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
