A substantial double fronted detached family home in an idyllic setting


Bengeo is a desirable village on the fringes of Hertford offering a great mix of properties and styles. The Orchard is a private close of just a few houses, most of which have been owned by the same families for some time. It is essentially bordered on two sides by open parkland and woodland, Great Mole Wood and South Heath, being very popular with walkers and ecologists due to its natural wildlife habitat.


Set behind a long gravel driveway Orchard House provides secluded family living with substantial accommodation arranged over two levels with a separate large double garage with electric doors.

Internally the house has been well cared for by the current owners with upgraded kitchen and bathrooms and is fully double glazed. The principle reception hallway provides a hub for the main reception space which includes a triple aspect lounge opening into a sun room/conservatory, a dining room, study and TV room. The kitchen/diner is at the rear of the house with a lovely aspect over the patio, gardens and woodland beyond. A utility room, guest cloakroom and additional store room completes the accommodation on this level.

On the first floor the master bedroom suite is currently being used used as an office space but essentially still provides an excellent sized bedroom area, dressing room and refitted jack and jill style en suite. There are four further bedrooms on this floor all of which have fitted wardrobes, two of which having their own en suite facilities. There is also a modern family bathroom and good sized airing cupboard both located off the landing itself.

On the outside, the gardens provide a peaceful and secluded environment enjoying direct access to the surrounding woodland and parkland. Much of the garden features mature shrubs, trees and a lawn area plus a patio and BBQ for entertainment. The rear portion of the garden is used as a 'natural' feature and is planted with a dazzling array of spring flowering bulbs and bluebells. To the side of the house there is a vegetable patch and an additional laundry/patio area with a greenhouse plus a garden shed. The driveway to the front of the house provides ample parking and turning space leading to a very reasonably sized double garage with an internal staircase to the rear offering access to a mezzanine / store area. This area offers potential to convert, perhaps to a teenager annexe if required, subject to planning permission.

Square Footage: 3,983 sq ft


From Hertford town centre head north towards Bengeo up Port Hill. At the mini roundabout bear to the left onto Sacombe Road, and The Orchard is a turning on your left hand side. As you enter the close, keep to your right and Orchard House is the house on the far right hand side.
