Overall Description

This surprisingly spacious property has been updated and remodelled throughout by its current owners to create a large modern and well laid-out family home. The property was originally four bedrooms, but the owners created a lovely large master bedroom by putting two of them together, and this along with removing the chimney breasts to create more space means the house now has three double bedrooms. There are two doubles on the first floor, along with a stylish modern bathroom, with a spiral staircase leading to a third on the converted loft upstairs. The heart of the home is the contemporary kitchen (newly fitted five years ago) which is open-plan into the good-sized family and dining room with sky-light and French doors out to the garden. There is a front sitting room and downstairs cloakroom and the house is fully double-glazed with gas central-heating run from a combi-boiler. The owners have also landscaped the large gardens to create a series of entertaining spaces which include a sunny area of decking with garden shed that has been converted into a fully functional bar with electric light and power. There is also a log cabin/garden studio, also with electric light and power, which is used as a home office. To the front of the property is a long driveway with plenty of parking and there is side access through the neighbour's garden (but no reciprocal right of way for anyone else). If you are looking for a substantial, modern family home in an edge of village setting with a pleasant rural aspect, and the opportunity to become part of this lively village community, then viewing is highly recommended.

Location

The property is located towards the edge of the attractive village of Walkern which sits amongst open Hertfordshire countryside just a couple of miles East of Stevenage with plenty of footpaths and bridleways close by for keen walkers and cyclists. Walkern is a thriving community with excellent local amenities such as a well regarded primary school, village shop and Post Office, petrol station with garage, two pub/restaurants, sports and community hall, and even a DIY shop, art gallery and antiques shop. Just a ten minute drive away is the town of Stevenage with its excellent High Street shops, schools at all levels and other facilities, the Old Town being well known for its good selection of pubs and restaurants. Stevenage railway station has regular fast trains to London Kings Cross, and also sits next to the A1, making it perfect for busy commuters who want to escape the rat race.

The property has a driveway to the front with ample off-street parking. The house has a lovely large back garden, which is a major selling point for this home, with a gateway providing access into next door and back around to the front (but there is no right of way across the garden for anyone but the owners). The garden has been cleverly sub-divided into different entertaining spaces with a good-sized patio and lawn immediately to the rear of the house. Next to this is the LOG CABIN/STUDIO: 15'7 x 7'7 with three windows, electric light/power, a fitted kitchen units and sink (not connected). The next section of garden has raised decking (sitting over the former pond) and the SUMMERHOUSE: 8'9 x 5'7 which is used as a bar with electric light/power, work-top with storage under, two windows and drop-down serving hatch. The final section of garden is laid to lawn and currently houses a large trampoline with a fence separating it from the fields beyond.
