Overall Description

This most impressive flint-faced detached house was built in 1996 as part of this exclusive private development on the edge of Hertford and has been lived in by the current family for the last fifteen years. The property has been perfectly designed for a growing family with around 2,850 square feet of living accommodation in all. Downstairs there are three large receptions, a study, conservatory, kitchen/breakfast area, cloakroom and utility while upstairs there are five double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms, and a further family bathroom. The house has pleasant views over the large and pleasantly landscaped garden which leads directly to the three and a half acre field behind, which the owners share with the other six properties on Woodville Place. There is a large double garage with driveway, which has parking for around six cars, with further parking along the lane. With its peaceful, semi-rural position and its easy proximity to Hertford North station, local schools and the town centre, this is an ideal family home for professional couples wanting to escape London for a quieter lifestyle while still being an easy commute away.

Location

This superb detached family home sits on a private cul-de-sac at the end of a lane in the highly desirable area of Lower Bengeo, less than a ten minute walk from Hertford North Station (with services to Moorgate/London Kings Cross) and a level walk into the town centre. Hertford has a wide range of local facilities such as shops, restaurants, supermarkets and excellent schools within both the independent and state sectors whilst retaining its appeal as an attractive and very pleasant place to live, which is why it is so popular with young professional families and commuters. A second station, Hertford East, offers services to Liverpool St, and the A10 and A1 are easily accessible. The town is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside (there is a footpath just along the lane) and has a wide range of sporting and leisure pursuits close to hand including Hartham Common with its riverside walks and cycle path, activity centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
