A fantastic opportunity to purchase a large four bedroom family home occupying an enviable plot approaching 0.4 acre and on which sits a timber built chalet with the potential to be used in a variety of ways. It also provides the possibility of development (subject to necessary planning permissions) and has previously been let out for £12,000 p.a.
EPC rating: F.
Get the best of both worlds. Nestled in the countryside with leafy surroundings it is only a short drive from St Albans City Centre with its array of prestigious schools, popular shops, cafes and restaurants. Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City are also only a short distance away. The property also boasts easy access to the surrounding road networks including the A1, M1 and M25.
The main dwelling is a four bedroom detached chalet bungalow offering an abundance of thoughtfully arranged accommodation laid out over two floors. Starting with the ground floor the property offers flexible living space with a large lounge, formal dining room and two additional reception rooms which could both double up as bedrooms. Certainly a key selling point of this wonderful home is the kitchen/dining room which is triple aspect allowing plenty of light to flood in creating a fantastic entertaining space. Double doors open onto the rear patio.
The remaining ground floor space consists of a handy utility room (including a toilet), rear lobby and bathroom/en suite. Moving upstairs you will find two spacious double bedrooms both boasting glorious countryside views to the rear. Bedrooms one and two both have their own en suites. One of the en suites is a modern three-piece bathroom and the other a three-piece shower room. Access to the property is gated and there is a shingled driveway providing ample parking. The property has a large double garage as well as a handy garden store.
The beautifully maintained gardens are truly special wrapping around the property creating a peaceful oasis. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees, flowers and hedging. There is a lovely patio area ideal for al fresco dining. Additional benefits include a large pond (equipped with a selection of fish) and a large greenhouse in full sun. The current vendors also rent a separate parcel of adjacent land.
The property offers the unique opportunity of an additional self-contained timber built chalet (which has been let out previously at £12,000 p.a.) offering scope for re development subject to necessary planning permissions. There is the option for this to be used as an additional revenue stream or as an annexe/holiday let. The chalet also has its own gated access and driveway parking. The current building briefly consists of an entrance hall, two reception rooms, a modern kitchen, utility room, two bedrooms, en suite to the master and a family bathroom. Adjacent to the chalet there is a row of kennels, again with development potential (STPP). There are private gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and hedging.
