The Property
***OPEN DAT SAT 8th OCT 12-2pm***
A rarely available opportunity has arisen to purchase this unmodernised, unextended property in a favoured Harpenden avenue close to the station and quality schooling. The property offers enormous scope for extension and improvement (stpp) to create a superb family home.

The accommodation currently offers two reception rooms, downstairs cloakroom, kitchen, three bedrooms and family bathroom.

The large westerly facing rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with fruit trees and flower and shrub beds. The property offers off-street parking for three cars.

Harpenden has a variety of shops and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants.
A notable feature of Harpenden is its abundant parks and commons. The central area of Harpenden, known locally as "the village" is characterised by Church Green, Leyton Green and the High Street Greens, which give the town its provincial feel.

Just to the south of the town centre is Harpenden Common, stretching from the shops in the town centre for more than a mile to the south.

Harpenden has an excellent selection of quality school. St Dominic Catholic Primary, The Grove Junior and Infant Schools, High Beeches Primary and Crabtree Junior Schools are all within a short walk from the property.

Harpenden railway station is within a 15 minute walk and is served by Thameslink on a frequent and fast rail link through central London.
The M1 runs nearby. The closest access to the M1 is Junction 9 at Redbourn & Dunstable or alternatively Junction 10 for Luton & Airport.
