Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding Edwardian Grade II listed detached residence situated within a local conservation area, having been sympathetically modernised by the current owners to provide a home of distinction and quality. Built in 1908 by Sir Bannister Fletcher (president of the Royal Institute of British Architects), this delightful home sits prominently on a beautiful plot of approximately 0.75 acres. This grand detached Edwardian dwelling has been planned and extended over time to provide the perfect family home. It is a stunning example of a modernisation programme incorporating the aesthetic elements of a period Edwardian property with high ceilings, beautiful period features, wooden flooring and generous proportions throughout. Modern day luxuries blend in seamlessly to incorporate a wonderful hand crafted kitchen breakfast room which is filled with light from above with an electric skylight and is fitted with an Aga, modern integrated appliances and a stunning Brazilian granite work surface. Further ground floor accommodation provides a delightful triple aspect drawing room which overlooks the beautifully maintained and private rear gardens, a well proportioned family room with 108" cinema screen, a dining room to the rear elevation with a spiral wine cellar and a fully equipped utility room. The bright and spacious first and second floors provide versatile family accommodation providing 6 bedrooms (one fitted as a study), 3 luxurious bathrooms (one en suite to the principal bedroom) and a dedicated laundry room.


Potters Bar mainline station is a short walk (approximately 5 minutes) with fast links into London Kings Cross (20 minutes). Junction 23 of the M25 and the A1(M) are approx 2 miles away.


The plot itself is extremely wide and provides stunning front and rear gardens which include various ponds and water features, an all weather tennis court, a Naturalistic heated swimming pool with an air source heat pump, its own changing facilities and a Larchwood sun area. Furthermore the gardens provide an adventure play area, greenhouse, a double garage with electric doors and rear access to the garden. For teenagers Tiverton also provides the perfect "getaway", a lovely summer house which is currently used as a gym/games room. To the front aspect set back from the road by natural screening the house further benefits from off street parking for several vehicles on the gravel driveway.
