Property description

Tastefully modified by the present owners, the property boasts comfortable and spacious family living accommodation superior to similar available homes in the area. The present owners have been resident since 2003 and have made significant improvements such as the front porch, the modern luxury kitchen, refurbished master bedroom and upgrades to the heating, electrics and windows.

The ground floor is laid out with a hallway and porch leading into the open plan living room/dining room. Double Georgian frosted pane doors open onto the kitchen which is tastefully finished in cream tiles supported by an underfloor heating system for the cooler months. The cabinets are finished in black gloss with brushed aluminium finish handles, and all worktops are finished in premium flamed granite. From the kitchen wood framed bifold doors open out onto a magnificent outdoor seating and dining area which can be used year-round thanks to the permanent pergola providing shelter and the charm of a climbing wisteria in the summertime.

Travatine slabs underfoot and a tasteful bench seat lend a Mediterranean feel to the back garden here. This is clearly a space for entertaining and definitely could be considered an ‘outdoor room' in every sense. Further up the garden is a raised breakfast patio area, a barbecue shelter, and to the left an area laid to lawn and a large corner shed. Side access is available by way of a path leading to a door into the garage which ultimately leads through to the front drive.

One of the main selling points of this property is the quiet serenity afforded by the location, which may come as a surprise in such an advantageous part of Watford. Team this with the excellent local schools (Parmiters, Stanborough, St Michaels etc), access to the M1, M25, A41 and local transport hubs such as St Albans and Watford as well as the superb quality of the neighbours are the main points which attracted the current owners – and why they are sad to be leaving the neighbourhood.

Also on the ground floor is a bathroom, yet to be refurbished (not pictured, see floor plan for size) and a large garage. Upstairs there are four good sized bedrooms and a shower room installed by the current owners.

There is excellent potential for an enterprising purchaser to extend the property on the first floor over the garage and over the downstairs bathroom, as well as potentially going up into the loft space to create a very well-appointed 5 bed home with 3-4 bathrooms if required. Precedent for such works is clear in neighbouring properties. Any extension or building work will be subject to planning permission and building regulations approval. Please make enquiries with the local authority planning office for more information.

We cannot stress enough that this really is a property that you need to see in person to understand why it is so special when compared to other properties nearby at a similar price point, and we encourage you to contact us to arrange a viewing at the earliest opportunity.

Further information on the works undertaken to the property, please contact our offices and ask for Alasdair. Please contact us for further information or to arrange a viewing.

An EPC has been ordered and will be available for inspection shortly.
