Description

Property description Situated in a quiet country lane in the heart of this delightful Hertfordshire village, this individual detached house has been substantially extended and improved by the current owner who has created a fantastic opportunity for those looking to embark on an exciting project. There is a superb opportunity here to take the reins as the property now mainly requires 'the finishing touches' and this represents a very rare opportunity to complete this spacious family home with an impressive 3584 sq feet of versatile accommodation.

The work carried out so far by the current owner is of an excellent standard. Upvc double glazing is installed together with under floor heating to the kitchen, living room and bathrooms. Solid oak doors feature throughout with oak balustrades to the staircase. The family bathroom needs completing, however plumbing is installed and sanitary ware is mainly in place or has provision. An incoming purchaser has the choice of putting their own stamp on the property with their choice of décor and floor finishes.

The house itself is arranged over two floors and offers bright and airy accommodation with flexible living space.

The ground floor boasts a large 'L' shape living dining room flooded with lots of natural light by two sets of bi-fold doors opening onto the rear garden. The modern kitchen/dining room has been completed, other than flooring, and is fitted with contemporary black high gloss units with polished wood block work surfaces over, incorporating a matching 'island'. Integrated appliances include: Twin ovens, microwave oven, ceramic hob and dishwasher. There is a utility area off the inner hall, a guest cloakroom and a door giving access to the double garage. From the main reception hall doors lead off to a spacious study fitted with bespoke cupboards and shelving and a second reception room.

A turning staircase from the reception hall rises to the first floor. This floor offers a fabulous master suite with a high vaulted ceiling and mezzanine level with access to the loft space. Doors lead to a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room. There are four further double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms and one with walk-in wardrobe and a Juliet balcony offering views across to the rear and a vista over the surrounding countryside. A large family bathroom with deep stand-alone bath and provision for a double shower unit completes this floor.

The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and is accessed from the living/dining room. There are two large outbuildings (requiring some attention) The front garden is also laid to lawn with an attractive ornamental pond. There is front to rear access via a gated side passage.

The driveway, providing parking for two/three vehicles, leads on to the double garage which has an electronically operated roller door. Further off street parking could easily be created if required as the drive requires re-surfacing.

Location 'The Bungalow' is situated on a quiet lane just off the centre of Barkway. The village is surrounded by particularly attractive undulating countryside and is well placed for commuters with access to London via the A10, A505 and M11.

Barkway benefits from a First School, pub, church, garage/petrol station and has a thriving community with various societies and clubs.

The neighbouring town of Royston (approx. 4.5 miles) provides more comprehensive shopping facilities and a frequent rail service into London's Kings Cross and to Cambridge. The small market town of Buntingford is also only a short drive away. (approx. 5.5 miles)
