Set in a quiet side street within a quarter of a mile of Harpenden train station, number 1 Cowper Road is a brand new 'Victorian' style semi detached house that has been thoughtfully designed around modern day informal living.

From the entrance lobby, a large hallway runs through to the kitchen and family room. A smart wet room is featured and to the front of the house, a large, more formal, sitting room can be found. This room features a most attractive fireplace with fitted gas fire, a range of bespoke fitted shelves and cupboards and a sash bay window to the front.

The main feature of the ground floor space is the fabulous kitchen/breakfast and family room space. This whole area is exceptional and represents the 'hub' of the house. A cleverly designed seating area around a glass top breakfast/dining table heads the space and beyond stands an impressive central island topped with a single piece of granite work top. The Island incorporates an AEG induction hob and sink unit and beneath, a range of fitted draws and storage cupboards, coupled with an integrated dishwasher and a waste bin. A large bank of fitted units can be found across one wall and incorporates AEG appliances including twin ovens and a microwave.

Beyond the kitchen space is a fabulous area which would be best described as a family room. Set beneath two Atrium roof lights and with large floor to ceiling windows, the whole space is bathed in light. One wall features a contemporary style gas fire with inset space for a large TV, bi-folding doors lead out to the rear terrace. The whole room benefits from under-floor heating and is just perfect for day to day living.

A good sized utility room is fitted with a matching range of units and sink arrangement, and a door leads out to the side.

On the first floor, the master bedroom and 2 further bedrooms can be found. The master bedroom features a semi vaulted ceiling and a luxuriously fitted en suite. Both of the 2 further bedrooms also feature en suites as does the top floor bedroom.

? Traditional brick construction
? Cat 5 wiring

At the rear of the house lies a large paved terrace, perfect for outdoor entertaining. A level lawn garden extends away from the terrace and is flanked on all sides by 6' timber fencing. A pathway leads to the front down one side of the house, where a paved driveway provides parking for 2 cars.
