Overall Description

This property is the ideal home for professional families wanting to move out of London to enjoy a better quality of life whilst staying within an easy commuting distance. Built in 1996, it was significantly extended in 2009 and then further upgraded and modernised by the current owners into what is now a substantial and stylish family home. The heart of the home is undoubtedly the spacious open-plan bespoke kitchen, dining and family area with two large double tri-fold doors opening out into the attractive landscaped gardens - perfect for bringing the outside into the house on a summer's day. The house has a light and airy feel throughout from the large open entrance hall, to the three further reception rooms including spacious sitting room with new wood burning stove, study with quality fitted office furniture and family TV room. Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with luxury en-suite, second guest en-suite bedroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is even scope for further bedrooms in the large loft if needed - subject to the usual consents. The back mature garden is around a quarter of an acre and It has decking/patio areas for entertaining and even a hand-built children's play area as well as a dedicated space for a hot tub. The double garage was recently converted into a gym/games room, fully insulated with new electric doors, but can be used as a double garage if so desired. There is upgraded security with alarm sensors throughout the house and the Ring system set up on the front and side entrances which you can monitor from your phone via an App. The driveway has been brick-paved and has parking for six plus cars. If you want a truly special family home close to local transport links and schools, then this property could be for you.

Location

This very well appointed family home sits in a cul-de-sac of other similar detached properties in a tucked away location in Sherrardswood Park on the edge of the popular commuter town of Welwyn Garden City. This house offers the best of both worlds as it is under a mile from Old Welwyn, a picturesque village with proper pubs, excellent restaurants, local shops and even the remains of a Roman Baths, and yet is also a twenty minute walk from the centre of Welwyn Garden City which has excellent family restaurants and shopping including the Howard Shopping Centre, John Lewis department store, and Waitrose. There is very good public and private schooling in the area including Sherrardswood School, Monks Walk and Knighstfield Schools (the latter two are within walking distance)., whilst the independent schools in St. Albans and Hertford are also close by. The area has very good transport links: Welwyn Garden City station (Kings Cross in under 25 minutes) is a 20 minute walk away, Welwyn North is five minutes by car and the A1 (J6) is less than a mile away. The area is ideal for busy families with beautiful Hertfordshire countryside on your door step and a wide selection of sporting and other leisure activities such as golf, tennis and riding nearby.
