Tenure: Freehold

A very substantial and superbly presented five bedroom detached home with separate annexe, situated in a quiet position in a highly sought after area.

This sizeable property is located on the edge of the desirable Fairfield Park. Looking onto fields and countryside the property sits on an extremely generous plot of approximately 1/3 of an acre. The property has recently undergone complete redecoration including new carpets and flooring, made to measure wooden 'shutter style' blinds and crystal light fittings. Harptree House features a wealth of high end finishes including stone fireplaces, sash style windows, decorative coving and deep skirting boards, not forgetting the high ceilings and solid wood doors.

As well as its quiet position the property benefits from quick access to the A507 leading to the A1 motorway. The thriving town of Hitchin is only a five minute drive away offering many amenities including high street stores, shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. Both Letchworth and Hitchin offer a mainline railway stations providing fast and frequent services to London Kings Cross taking less than thirty minutes.

The extensive gated driveway leading to the double garage creates more than adequate parking for 6 cars and offers an overall sense of security and size. The garage has both a downstairs and upstairs cloakroom with an impressive dual aspect office on the first floor with Juliette balcony overlooking the driveway. This fabulous space can also be used as an annexe for guests, teenagers, the au pair or a man - cave!

A side gate, with new block paved path, provides access to the main entrance which looks out onto wonderful views of the countryside.

Once inside a good size hallway introduces the main ground floor reception and living areas comprising a study/office, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room and cloakroom. The immediate room on hand from the entrance is the extremely impressive study. If work must be done from home this is a great room to do it. A sizeable but warm room looks to the front with a view of the bridle - path and countryside for company.

The sitting room and separate dining room will cater for those cosy winter nights in and big Christmas family gatherings to summer entertaining. Both rooms feature outstanding working gas fireplaces with stone surround. Whilst the sitting room takes advantage of the front peaceful scenery, the dining room looks out into the garden with French doors providing access to the garden patio.

A superbly sized kitchen is more than adequate for modern living requirements offering plenty of space for cooking, communing and informal dining. High end finishes including Belfast style sink in wooden worktop, integrated appliances and French doors to the patio make this kitchen a great addition to the home. Furthermore a brilliant utility room perfectly takes care of the day to day practicalities with more than enough space for washing, drying and maybe most importantly housing the family pet! From here there is also the downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs is comprised of five bedrooms including a master with en-suite and two bathrooms spread over two floors.

The first floor hosts the picture perfect master bedroom. A light room with a gorgeous square bay window allowing for dressing area and a whole wall of fitted wardrobes by Hammonds. A perfect way to prepare for the day by gazing out onto superb countryside. The en-suite is certainly grand enough to equal its bedroom counterpart with traditional style sanitary with wall mounted rainfall shower.

The second bedroom has a round bay window which floods the room with light and sunshine. Built in wardrobes by Hammonds feature along a whole wall providing ample space for clothes, shoes and storage. This room is lovely and tranquil with wonderful views of the bridle-path and countryside.
The third bedroom confirms just how well balanced the house is. This is a large square room with its own attic and is currently being used as a nursery and playroom for grandchildren. There is room enough in here for a large double and a single.

The Victorian style bathroom is large with a shower and bathroom suite. The marbled tiled floor compliments the stunning decoration.

On the second floor are two bedrooms with the second family bathroom. This would serve fantastically as a master floor with one side acting as bedroom, one as dressing room and feature bathroom in the middle. Alternatively the setup offers a great way for children to have their own private arrangement on a floor of their own.

The rear enclosed garden is a tranquil setting with a breakfast patio to the nearside of the property leading to a good lawn space. The feature brick wall cladded with mature plants, screens and isolates the garden to create its own oasis. A further decking area is sheltered by a covered gazebo and surrounded by flower beds with antique roses, wisteria and various fragrant plants and shrubs.

With everything this magnificent home has to offer it must be considered for viewing. Please call Fine & Country, Hitchin to book your appointment.
