Overall Description

This surprisingly spacious 1950's semi-detached house sits on a corner plot in an elevated position that lends itself to extending the property to the side to add a fourth en-suite bedroom, or rear to create a large modern family kitchen/dining room opening out into the garden (the former subject to planning, the latter subject to permitted development regulations). At present there are three bedrooms, a shower room and a large loft upstairs, while downstairs there are two receptions, a galley kitchen, utility room, bathroom and separate downstairs cloakroom. The property does retain some character features such as the open fireplace in the sitting room and timber doors and is in good decorative order with gas central-heating throughout. There is a large garden to the rear with mature magnolia tree and pond as well as a shared drive leading to the garage. There would appear to be scope to add further off-street parking, if so required. If you are looking for a project to create a family home to your own tastes and requirements then this property is well worth a viewing.

Location

The property is in an elevated position in a good residential location towards the edge of the popular Hertfordshire town of Ware, around a ten minute's walk from the town centre and fifteen from the station. Ware has a very good range of local shops, restaurants, pubs, supermarkets (Asda and Tesco) and other amenities, as well as being handy for commuting, with the railway station providing regular trains to London Liverpool Street in around 45 minutes and the A10 providing easy access to the M25. There are very good schools at all levels in the local area with the Orchards Pre-School, St Catharines Primary School and Chauncy School all being a shortish walk away. The town has a thriving local community with plenty of sporting, leisure and social activities (see www.wareonline.co.uk for details of local events) and is surrounded by pleasant countryside with plenty of riverside and rural walks and cycle paths to explore. The Bourne Open Space and Play Area is just at the end of the street, which is a lovely green space to enjoy and for children to play.
