See the Virtual Tour for this impressive Arts & Crafts style detached residence standing in one-acre gardens and beautifully presented throughout with current planning permission to increase the ground floor accommodation and located in a prestigious private road.

Property - The property is approached by an impressive gated tree-lined driveway through wonderful mature gardens leading to a large gravelled parking area. This highly individual family residence is arranged over three floors and was built in 1928 in an Arts and Crafts style. It offers a natural blend of period features combined with elegant contemporary styling.
The ground floor hall and reception rooms have original exposed floor boards and there is a triple aspect living room with large bay window and fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove. High ceilings throughout the ground floor give a feeling of space and light and across the hallway lies an attractive dining room with painted wood panelling and a fireplace with fitted wood burning stove. Original window seat and triple aspect views across the grounds.
A stunning contemporary German made kitchen with a full range of Miele integrated appliances, dual zone wine cooler and central island with honed granite work surfaces, incorporating a breakfast bar to one end. Within the island is a multi-function boiling water tap and 5 burner gas hobs. A set of double glazed bi fold doors lead from the kitchen to the garden. A utility area and luxury cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor is a curved landing area incorporating double doors to a balcony. Triple aspect master bedroom with bespoke window seat, dressing room and luxury en-suite shower room with underfloor heating. At first floor there are a further 2 double bedrooms and a study/bedroom 6 served by a large and stylish family bathroom with underfloor heating.
A spacious landing and turning staircase leads to the second floor which provides two further double bedrooms with
eaves storage, and a further bathroom with a suite that incorporates a half bath with shower above.

Planning Permission - The current owners have full planning permission for a large single storey extension off the living room to create another reception room (plans available for inspection)

Outside - The property is centrally positioned within a delightful secluded garden of approximately 1 acre on the apex of Desborough Drive and West Riding. Access to the property is via its own gated drive from Desborough Drive, although there is further pedestrian gated access to the front of the house.
The gardens are a major feature of the property, with a large area of lawn enclosed by a variety of mature trees and shrubs including several fine oaks, beech, hornbeam, rhododendron, laurel, holly and fruit trees.
Within the garden sits a pleasant timber-built summer house, as well as a log store and fully fenced chicken coop. There is also a one and a half-length double garage and ample parking on the property's large gravel drive.

Location - Tewin Wood is a sought after residential area of mainly large, prestigious houses, grouped around a network of private roads. There is a local shop and post office for day to day needs in nearby Burnham Green, with more extensive shopping, educational and recreational facilities in Welwyn Garden City, which lies about 3 miles to the south.

The area is ideal for those wishing to commute, as Welwyn North station, which is about 2miles, offers a fast and frequent service into King's Cross, taking from just 20 minutes. Junction 6 of the A1(M) is about 3 miles away.
