A gated entrance leads through a 'rose arch' from the lane and in turn leads to the gabled entrance door of this charming residence.
From the entrance hall there is a modern, well fitted cloakroom with a modern contemporary style suite.
The living room is cosy and characterful, the main focal point being a beautiful inglenook style fireplace with raised hearth, exposed brick surround and log burning stove. The sitting room is also delightful and has a gas coal effect fireplace (not currently connected), exposed beams and the room is triple aspect with french doors opening to the rear garden.
An inner hall leads into the very atmospheric dining room. This also has a very old fireplace with exposed brick surround, back and hearth and there are windows to the side and exposed ceiling beams.
The farmhouse style kitchen is attractively fitted with a range of well constructed storage units painted in a 'Farrow and Ball' style colour, further enhanced by granite counter tops, with a Britannia range cooker, ornamental period range and a butler style sink with concealed waste disposal unit below. There is a small hand sink, with a kinetic water softener below, beautiful quarry tiled floors, and a stable style door opening to a lobby with further exit door to the front.
Being the product of a clever amalgamation of two cottages, there are two landings and both are connected.
The lovely master bedroom has a walk-through dressing area with fitted wardrobes and lovely views over Mid-Herts Golf course. There is an opening through to an en-suite bathroom, fitted with an attractive modern suite with complementary tiling to the floor and some walls.
Bedroom two has a vaulted ceiling, fitted wardrobe units and well fitted en-suite shower room. Bedroom three has a range of fitted wardrobe units, whilst Bedroom four is incredibly attractive, with a vaulted ceiling and a wealth of exposed beams and a range of deep fitted wardrobe units. Bedroom five is a dual aspect room currently used by our clients as a study but would also function well as a good single bedroom. The family bathroom, another very charming feature with high vaulted ceiling, many exposed beams that are complemented with a modern suite and built-in linen cupboard.
The pretty gardens extend to three sides of the property. To the front there is a parking area with comfortable parking for two/three vehicles (NO GARAGE) and the front garden has a shaped lawn and borders stocked with a range of flowering plants and specimen shrubs. Walk down the side of the property and this will take you to the rear garden which has a paved patio area, summer house, lawn and water feature together with three apple trees and a walnut tree.
Gustard Wood is renowned for its surrounding countryside and the many walks and bridle paths that dissect it. The prestigious Mid Herts Golf Club is found nearby and a good range of shops, including a Tesco Express, are located in Wheathampstead High Street, together with a fine selection of restaurants. The nearby town of Harpenden provides a comprehensive range of shops, first class educational establishments and a fast rail service to London.
