Full description

An attractive and traditionally built home located within this sought after West Common location, set behind tall hedges, overlooking the fields of Rothamsted and backing Hammonds End Golf Club.

We are delighted to offer for sale this handsome, traditionally built family home, located in this well regarded and sought after West Common location. The property offers well balanced and spacious accommodation with the added benefit of a detached 27ft studio, with light, power and heating, making it a perfect home office.

The property also has a large double garage with accommodation above, to include one large room and bathroom. This could be ideal for an au pair or 'granny flat' above, with the potential for residential conversion of the garage below, subject to planning, creating a separate detached dwelling within the grounds of Fieldgate.

Fieldgate offers a traditional and welcoming Reception Hall, accessing all the principal reception rooms including the impressive all-aspect sitting room and original inglenook fireplace with multi fuel burning stove. The ground floor also offers a dining room with bay window overlooking the rear garden, a large square study to the front with 2.5m spiral cellar, a good sized family breakfast room, with double doors opening to a large rear terrace.

The kitchen and breakfast/family area has been designed to encourage family living and provides ample space for a large table and chairs. A comprehensive range of cabinets have been hand made and fitted by local company De Mornay Boyes, complement the character of this 1930s home. There is substantial storage arranged around a gas Aga, companion oven and hob. Off the kitchen there is a large utility room, which houses the central heating boiler, further cupboards and plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryers.

On the first floor there are five good sized bedrooms, including a Master Suite, with Dressing Room and large en-suite bathroom. There is a further bedroom on the first floor with en-suite facility, three further bedrooms and a sumptuous family bathroom suite. The property boasts a number of delightful character features associated with a house of this calibre, including oak floorings to the principal reception rooms, turned staircase with oak spindles and handrail, leaded light windows, fireplaces including the large inglenook in the sitting room and a further fireplace with gas burning stove in the Family Room.

There is a large loft area, measuring approximately 31'10 x 10'7 and 23'5 x 9'3, providing an area for storage and possible Hobby or Games Room.

The property enjoys a large front garden, providing parking for several cars, behind tall hedges, overlooking the fields of Rothamsted Park. Gated access from the front of the property leads through to the rear garden, which is fully enclosed and private with an extensive patio area to the rear of the property, lawn area with shrub and mature flower bed borders providing a good degree of privacy during the late spring and summer months. The property also has the added benefit of backing on to Hammonds End Golf Club. Fieldgate is located in a desirable residential Harpenden location on the rural fringes of the town, however being in easy access of the centre of Harpenden.

To fully appreciate the calibre of this fine home, an interior viewing is highly recommended.
