Overall Description

This immaculately presented detached bungalow has been extensively remodelled and up-dated by its current owners to create a spacious and beautifully appointed family home. The modernisation was extensive and included new windows, kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, re-plastering and wiring, adding the wood burning stove and brick chimney, plus a new boiler. The resulting property has four bedrooms, the master being en-suite as well as a family shower room and separate office. The fourth bedroom is on a mezzanine level up above the large family room and this arrangement also offers scope for use as an annexe - plus there is a large fully boarded loft that may have additional potential. There are two further good-sized reception rooms, the dining room even has a fully fitted bar in the corner, as well as a large kitchen/dining room with high spec kitchen units and breakfast bar. There is a sunny patio outside with space for a Hot Tub as well as a large lawn with gazebo, so it is made for entertaining. The gardens have a gated entrance and hedge borders for privacy and a private driveway with ample parking. The property is a short walk into Welwyn village with its boutique shops and pubs/restaurants and a short drive from the A1 and Welwyn North Station, perfect for commuters. Viewing is highly recommended.
