Property Description

Full description

A superb detached character home privately situated in delightful gardens of one third of an acre

Property - This fine detached home is currently owned by a retired designer and her husband and as one might expect, the house is beautifully presented throughout, it has replacement double glazed windows taking full advantage of its southerly aspect and all internal doors have been replaced with specially made solid oak doors. A generous vestibule leads to a large reception hall with a Georgian style bay window providing a seating area giving lovely views over the front garden and beyond, off the hall is the principal living room which has a stunning semi-circular bay which overlooks the rear garden, exposed woodblock flooring runs the entire length of the room and a marble open fireplace is an attractive focal point. There are 2 further reception rooms both with south facing aspect and a smart kitchen/breakfast room with built in oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and ceramic hob, a door leads to a utility room and another to a double garage with remote control door. A useful study area is located in between the kitchen and hall and there is a cloakroom.

From the main hall a staircase leads up to a spacious landing with 5 bedrooms; the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom finished in chrome and white and there is a large family bathroom with a pre-set integrated filling system to the bath. The second bedroom gives onto a wonderful semi-circular seating balcony enclosed by a glass and stainless steel balustrade which overlooks the rear garden and all the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes.

Outside - The house dates from the 1960s and the original owner set about planting the garden with a wide variety of ornamental trees to both back and front, these have matured to provide colour and seclusion. The rear garden faces south and has an immaculate patio and rockery feature with steps up to a large lawn leading to a useful octagonal garden outbuilding. There is a pathway either side of the house with gated access to the front garden, an extensive gravel drive provides parking for several cars and a five barred gate fronts the main entrance from Turpins Chase.

Please Note planning permission was previously obtained to erect a heritage style open bay garage within the front garden, thus allowing for the conversion of the existing garage in to additional living accommodation subject to permission from Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council.

Location - Turpins Chase is a highly regarded residential address, lying just over one mile from Welwyn village with its range of specialist shops and restaurants, access to A1(M) and pick up point for local schools including St Albans. Welwyn North & Knebworth railway stations are within easy reach.

Services - All mains services are connected
