Geescroft Walk is a small enclave of homes built in a mews style, hidden away behind Hatching Green on the fringes of Rothamsted Park and Harpenden's West Common. The area is favoured for its leafy outlook and its proximity to an extensive network of footpaths across the Common and Park and is ideal for enthusiastic joggers and dog walkers alike.

Geescroft Walk is also well placed for Harpenden High Street, with its comprehensive range of shops, including Waitrose, Marks & Spencer food and Sainsburys, just over a mile away. Additionally, there are also boutiques, bistros and restaurants.

Harpenden has a great choice of schools, with both state and private options, including St Hilda’s School for Girls and Aldwickbury Boys Preparatory School. Additionally, Roundwood Junior and Senior Schools, St Nicholas C of E School and St Dominics RC Schools are a short drive away and are very popular with families in the area.

For the commuter, access into London is convenient. Harpenden Station is approximately 1.2 miles away with fast trains to St Pancras International from 27 minutes. For the motorist, Junction 9 of the M1 is 3.5 miles distant and provides close links with the M25. Luton airport is located about 9 miles away, ideal for the international commuter.

Description

This beautifully appointed family home, constructed just seven years ago, is set behind Hatching Green, on the fringe of Rothamsted Park, in one of Harpenden’s premier locations. It has been built to an exacting standard and provides a well thought out family home, which takes full advantage of its fabulous views.

Tucked away quietly on a corner plot, the house is bordered by fields on two sides and enjoys views over a small wooded thicket. Entering into a generous and welcoming entrance hall, double doors lead through to the living room/dining room and another set into the superb kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fitted with Shaker style cabinets and granite worktops, this whole area is ideal for casual entertaining as it also benefits from double doors which lead out to the garden terrace. There is a large utility room fitted with cabinets to complement the design of the kitchen and a door leads from the utility room into the double garage.

Set off the kitchen is a well fitted study, which would be ideal for the most enthusiastic of home workers or conscientious students. The living room/dining room is stunning, with French doors leading out to the terrace and a magnificent cathedral style window overlooked by a minstrels gallery landing.

Upstairs, from the feature landing, is an impressive master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room. There are three further, well proportioned bedrooms, one with en suite, plus a separate family bathroom.

At the rear is an attractive L-shaped garden, which wraps around two sides of the house and offers a charming venue for outdoor entertaining.

To the front of the house is a pretty, pitched, timber porch, whilst a side gate provides access into the garden.
