Full description

The Cedars, is a 3000sq.ft family home set in one of the area's most desirable roads, just a couple of minutes walk from the renowned Bishops Stortford College (4-18 years) - WITH SCOPE TO EXTEND STPP TO CREATE AN EVEN GREATER HOME. Tucked away in a leafy and quiet ‘no through’ Lane, just a short distance from the town centre offering excellent amenities including Ofsted Outstanding state schools. This really is a very special home offering 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, a spacious hallway and landing, kitchen and utility. The garden faces south with mature shrubs and trees including a sunny terrace and patio.

Location - Matching Lane is a highly sought after quiet 'no through' road, tucked away in the North West corner of Bishops Stortford. It is just a short walk from the High Street which includes boutique shops, restaurants and a Waitrose. The town also has an excellent selection of amenities which includes a wide variety of sports clubs and facilities. The adjoining countryside provides numerous picturesque cycling and walking opportunities too.

The commuter road, rail and air links can be all be accessed quickly and easily. They include the main line railway station providing fast services to Cambridge and London's Liverpool Street (approx. 40 mins), the M11 (J8) for the North and South and the A120 West and East and then Stansted is London's third international airport.

The town is very fortunate to have a good selection of both primary and senior state schools with a number being Ofsted 'Outstanding' notably Hockerill Anglo European College (11-18 mixed), The Hertfordshire & Essex High School (11-18 girls - mixed 6th form), The Bishops Stortford Boys High School (11-18 boys - mixed 6th form). There is also Bishops Stortford College (5-18 mixed) an excellent private school, just around the corner.

Accomodation - This spacious detached house measures over 3000sq feet and offers five ample sized bedrooms, perfect for a family home. This home has a spacious hallway with an impressive Arts & Crafts style, double height, feature window overlooking the front garden. The ground floor has three reception rooms offering space for a separate playroom/study and entertaining family and friends. The kitchen overlooks the garden and has an adjoining utility/boot room. I particularly love the sitting room with its feature stone fireplace, and large sliding doors opening onto the south facing garden with mature planting and trees which provides an area of tranquility and privacy. This room also benefits from having the option of being open plan with the dining room as there are wide sub dividing doors.

A bespoke wooden and wrought iron staircase leads to the first floor which is where you can fully appreciate the double height feature window. There are four good size bedrooms, two with en suite facilities and a family bathroom on this floor. The second flight of stairs leads to the master bedroom suite with the full floor exclusively yours, with a bedroom large enough to include an ample seating area, a separate dressing room area and en suite bathroom.

Exterior - The property is approached along a quiet 'no through' road, onto a driveway providing ample parking, and access into a large integral garage with an up and over door.

The front garden is secluded by mature trees with a side access leading to the south-facing rear garden which benefits from a sunny patio and a secluded decked area. It is predominantly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees, notably the beautiful feature tree, perfect for reading and relaxing under on a summers day.
