Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

This historically significant property that dates back to 1260AD and served as military research base in World War 2 developing James Bond style gadgets has now has been converted in to some of the most luxurious self contained homes that money can buy in this beautiful and secluded part of Welwyn known as Wilshere Park, in Hertfordshire

Set against a leafy backdrop the Frythe which derives from the old English word meaning wooded country, is a 13th century Home that has known some interesting residents in its time. Today it has been beautifully restored and converted into 12 Luxury apartments where we have for sale a ground floor home which boasts its own garage, allocated parking space and a private garden with views of the verdant lawns surrounding this stately and imposing residence.
Inside the home there are two double bedrooms, each richly decorated and graced with high ceilings and full height windows to take in the stunning views. Two bathrooms (one ensuite) make this home ideal for friends who share, families with kids or simply those among us who love to entertain. The kitchen is fully fitted with integrated appliances and features a breakfast bar while the lounge dining room is located just next door and boasts a bespoke stone fireplace from Sandridge stonemasons near Bath. There is room here for multiple sofas, a large dining table the extended family could get around at Christmas and even a snug area perfect for reading while overlooking the home's private garden and views of the 'wooded country beyond'. A secure door opens out into the garden where you have a wide patio area perfect for parties, an artificial lawn with raised decked area above suitable for al fresco dining. Cast iron railings surround the garden and a side gate gives you access to the main entrance and parking area of the building.
To the side of the home is the private garage which is en bloc. the garage measures 7.23 x 3.21 making it large enough to store a Range Rover SUV and of course a further parking space is provided directly in front of this garage. Visitor parking is provided to the front of he Frythe for 8-10 vehicles and is exclusive to the residents of the Frythe.
This home is available to buy in a sought after part of Welwyn village known as Wilshere Park which is close to road links to A1m and walking distance into Welwyn village shops including a Tesco express and Simmons bakery as well as a variety of restaurants and coffee shops. A GP, dentist and pharmacy together with a post office and various boutiques make Welwyn a one stop for all your needs. There's even the Laura Kate tea parlour for when you've finished your shopping. For a wider range of shopping including John Lewis, M&S and Waitrose, and mainline train station with regular trains into London head down to Welwyn Garden City. The Frythe is in the AL6 post code which has easy access to the A1m and a short drive will take you from your door to the platform of Welwyn North train station while bus stops give frequent access into the village centre and other destinations.
