Welwyn Garden City offers both good transport to London for the commuter and a comprehensive shopping centre which features both John Lewis and a large Waitrose.

Built in 1928, this family home has been extended over the years to provide over 2000 sq ft of living accommodation.

With 3 reception rooms and an eat-in kitchen, 4 double bedrooms and a gym, this home has been arranged so that rooms can be flexible in their use to suit most family dynamics.

Leading on from the entrance hall there are 2 reception rooms, one is used as a study, but could be used as a playroom or family room, the other is a sitting room with a feature brick fireplace with woodburner.

At the rear, there is a dining room with open fireplace and French doors leading out to the entertaining terrace.

The kitchen/breakfast room has been designed very much to revolve around family living. Extensive cabinets topped with granite provide the backdrop to a range of integrated appliances including a coffee maker, range style oven and catering hob. There is a breakfast area next to the French doors leading out to the rear terrace.

Adjacent, there is a utility room with complementary cabinets to those in the kitchen with enough space for separate laundry appliances and a back-up fridge freezer.

On the first floor, there is the master suite overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. There is a fitted en suite with a bath and separate double size shower. The remaining 2 bedrooms are large and share a family bathroom, which again has a bath and separate shower.

Further stairs lead up to the top floor there is a study area, which could be ideal for children seeking somewhere quiet to do their homework.

On the top floor there is an attic room with its own en suite shower room and plenty of space for either an alternative master suite or could make a good teenage den.

With views of the fields and a plot extending to about 0.4 of an acre, there is ample space.

An outdoor entertaining area has been built under a pitched roof making outdoor entertaining a breeze.

At the rear of the garage is a separate room, which is currently used as a home gym.

Halfway down the garden there is a chicken house which has been designed and built to ensure that alternative uses could be explored for those not wishing to keep fowl. With a small pond adjacent this could be a lovely spot for a summer house. There are also greenhouses and a small kitchen garden.

At the rear of the garden there is an old stable and tack room which could be reinstated or simply used for extra storage space.

To the front of the house is a large brick paved driveway, which provides parking for several cars leaving enough space to turn around.
