Overall Description

This is a highly individual detached house, built originally in 1924, and extended over the last 30 years by its current owners, who also created the glorious gardens. The original part of the house still retails its character, in particular with its classic 1920's brick-surround fireplaces, and yet the new addition has a much more modern contemporary feel and acting as a pleasing contrast. The downstairs extension included a master bedroom and en-suite shower room, hallway/study and conservatory from which to enjoy the pretty views across the gardens. There is a large central kitchen/breakfast room with utility and cloakroom, while the original sitting room and dining room have more of a period feel. Upstairs are three more bedrooms and a family bathroom. The gardens are a true delight, very peaceful and full of interest with a large number of mature trees and shrubs giving them a real sense of seclusion. The property may well have scope for further extension and improvement - subject to planning - and the plot would certainly justify a larger house should it be required. If you are looking for something a bit different, a period character home in a beautiful setting, then this charming home could well be for you.

Location

The property is located on one of the most sought-after roads in the popular commuter village of Knebworth. Knebworth has a railway station, just a five to ten minutes walk away, with regular trains to London Kings Cross, and the A1 is just a short drive away. The village is a thriving community with an excellent range of local shops, pubs, restaurants and other amenities including good schools such as the Knebworth Primary and Nursery School and Annabels Montessori School. There are further High Street shops and other amenities just up the road in both Stevenage and Welwyn Garden City where you will find John Lewis, Debenhams, Waitrose and the Howard Shopping Centre. The property is close to sporting and other facilities including the Knebworth Golf Club, the Odyssey Health Club and Spa and a short drive from the Gosling Sports Centre. It is also close to beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, so great for keen walkers and cyclists.
