1 Garden Close is a substantial detached family house, which stands in beautiful landscaped gardens within one of Harpenden's most sought after private residential roads.

Upon entering the house, one immediate starts to appreciate the bright, spacious and stylish accommodation, emphasised by the fabulous vaulted hallway stretching up to the upper floor. For even the most discerning of families, the fabulous kitchen/breakfast room with the adjoining sitting room really does provide the perfect day to day living space for the growing family. The kitchen is most elegant in design and is fitted with an extensive range of bespoke units including a matching central island, as well as featuring an electric Aga with side companion. A significant drawing room and dining room provide more formal living space and a full fitted home office with bespoke furniture provides the perfect room for today's home office.

On reaching the first floor, the elegant and stylish interior continues throughout the well proportioned bedrooms. The principal bedroom boasts a fully fitted dressing room and luxury bath and shower room, whilst bedroom two also has similar attributes. There are two other bedrooms on this floor and a separate shower room. A second staircase rises to the top floor where two bedrooms, both with en suites, can be found although one of these is currently used as a playroom.

The house is approached over a block paved driveway which provides parking for four cars and leads to the double garage.

The gardens to the rear are simply stunning and incorporate a fabulous 'child friendly' area to the side which has a bark chippings surface where such play equipment would be perfectly located. Immediately to the rear of the house is an extensive stone paved sun terrace which provides wonderful outside entertaining space. Extensive level lawned gardens, flanked by an abundance of matures trees and shrub borders, extend away from the terrace and up to a 'secret garden'.
