A spectacular contemporary house in the heart of West Common.

Location

Approx. mileages: Harpenden town centre 1.25 miles, Harpenden station First Capital Connect (St Pancras International 27mins) 1.5 miles, St Albans 5 miles, Welwyn Garden City 8 miles, M1 (junction 9) 3 miles, A1M (junction 4) 7 miles, central London 28 miles, London Luton International Airport 5 miles

West Common has to be one of the most sought after areas of Harpenden. It's close proximity to open countryside, the common, Rothamsted Park and the town itself make it a highly desirable area to live in

With its quiet, leafy residential streets and large detached houses, it’s easy to understand why properties of this size rarely become available

About 1.25 miles from the bustling tree-lined high street, with its comprehensive range of shopping facilities and restaurants, including 3 supermarkets including a Marks and Spencer food store, Oakfield Road is a lovely place to live, coupled with convenience

The area is well known for its excellent private and state schools, with buses for St Albans and Berkhamsted schools picking up close by, if required

There are good sporting and leisure facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, sports centre and 4 renowned golf clubs within a 12 minute drive

For the commuter, Harpenden is well noted for its fast train service to St. Pancras International, and for the motorist, junction 9 of the M1 motorway is just 3 miles distant

A notable feature of Harpenden is its abundant parks and commons. The central area of Harpenden, known locally as "the village" is characterised by Church Green, Leyton Green and the High Street Greens, which give the town its provincial feel

Just to the south of the town centre is Harpenden Common, stretching from the shops in the town centre for more than a mile to the south, encompassing a total of 238 acres

Today, Harpenden Common hosts two cricket clubs, a football club, bridleways for horse riding, ramblers' paths and Harpenden Common Golf Club, all contained in an area of outstanding natural beauty

In addition the town has large green public spaces available in Rothamsted Park, Kinsbourne Green, Lydekker Park and the Nicky Line, perfect for cyclists, which bisects the town

Outside
Careful attention has been paid to designing the gardens in order to make the most of the outside space. This has resulted in gardens, which provide a choice of areas to rest and play. From the timber decked terrace shaded by beautiful trees at the end of the garden to the extensive sandstone tiled terrace wrapping around the back of the house, there really is a spot to suit everyone. Echoing the inside, much attention has been given to emphasise the clean lines and symmetry when sitting on the terrace. There is also a sheltered seating area and immaculate kitchen garden to one side of the house.

The rear garden is well screened by specimen trees including an elegant row of ‘lollipop’ style Photina with their blazing red leaves against a backdrop of deep green laurel and beech hedging. With a beautiful Indian bean tree planted and grown for its large, floppy leaves and the promise of a prolific show of midsummer white flowers, followed by thin, green bean like pods, this garden is a delight. The rear and front gardens also feature a full irrigation programmable system.

The house is approached over a large, gently sloping block paved driveway, which sweeps up and around in front of the house, thus providing extensive parking facilities. A large double garage stands to the side and features a remotely operated door and tiled base floor; a must for the sports car or classic car enthusiast.

Square Footage: 7,273 sq ft
