Seller’s Comments
Oakhill Drive is one of Welwyn’s best-kept secrets. A quiet and peaceful private road within walking distance of all the village amenities, which include independent local shops, a choice of restaurants, several pubs and an outstanding primary school. The road has a true sense of community with residents aged from 9 to 90. The residents’ association maintains the road through an annual £65 subscription and also organises an annual street party in the summer. Our garden is a wildlife haven with over 30 different bird species visiting on a regular basis, including woodpeckers and in the evening owls hooting from the woods. There are countryside walks from the doorstep and a natural park at the bottom of the road, all ideal for dog owners. The house itself backs on to a private bluebell wood with open fields beyond. All this, plus a station just 2.5 miles and only 30 minutes into London!.

We have loved living on Oakhill Drive but now that the children are fledged it is time for a new adventure. We are sad to be leaving but know the new owners will have found themselves a great new home.
