Overall Description

This is a substantial and very well presented detached family house with plenty of character in a delightful tucked away and private plot at the very end of an exclusive cul-de-sac of similar large properties. The property has been extensively modernised and updated over recent years which includes a new high-end kitchen, attractive wooden flooring downstairs and new bathroom suites throughout. Although a modern home there are plenty of character features with exposed timbers on both floors, period-style wooden doors with Suffolk latch handles and the lovely feature brick fireplace with recently added wood-burner in the sitting room. The heart of the home is the large open-plan kitchen/dining room which also has space for a family seating area and leads through to a good-sized utility room. The sitting room is spacious and there is a separate study and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs the galleried landing leads to the master suite with en-suite shower room, and there are three more bedrooms, two being double, and a family bathroom. Outside are lovely large mature gardens with large sunny patio, areas of lawn and even a small corner of woodland. The gardens are a real mini nature reserve with lots of wild birds and other animals as frequent visitors - there is even a Muntjac deer trail across the lawn. The house is approached down a private gravel driveway with ample parking and garage.

Location

The property is located in an exclusive development of four houses at the end of a quiet residential cul-de-sac in Digswell village, so a sought after location, not least because it is only around a three minute walk from Welwyn North station with its regular trains to London Kings Cross, and around a five minute drive from the A1. Digswell has a village shop
ewsagents and friendly local pub (The Cowper Arms) and in the charming village of Old Welwyn (5 minutes by car) there are further facilities including a Tesco Metro, bakers, pharmacy, specialist shops and an excellent selection of restaurants and local pubs. There are excellent shops and other amenities in Welwyn Garden City, a five or six minutes drive away, including the John Lewis Department Store, Howard Centre, Waitrose and Sainsburys. There are also very good schools at all levels in the area, including the St John's C of E Primary School (just a short walk away), the well regarded Sherrardswood School (2-18 years), also just down the road, and Oaklands School (a short drive). The property is close to sporting and other facilities including the Gosling Sports Centre, and Brocket Hall Golf Club. There are pretty riverside meadows and a picnic area (ideal for sunbathing and paddling with little ones) just down the road at Panshangar and the local area is known for its beautiful countryside, especially Mardley Wood and Mardley Heath with their footpaths and purpose built bike tracks. Ayot St Lawrence, former home of George Bernhard Shaw, with its famous Brocket Arms Public House is a short drive away.
