Ensum Brown are delighted to receive instructions to offer for sale this rarely available extended three bedroom 1930's family home ideally positioned in this sought-after road located within walking distance to Hertford's bustling and vibrant high street & Hertford East British Rail Station with its fast links into London Liverpool Street (approx. 40 minutes journey time).
The property has been superbly upgraded and extended by the present vendor and is presented in immaculate condition throughout providing a perfect blend of charm and character with a modern twist. In 2014, the property underwent a complete overhaul to include the electrics being re-wired, plumbing updated and new plastering throughout.
Upon approaching the property it has great kerb appeal and sits peacefully in this family-orientated setting; there is a recently-laid block paved driveway proving parking for two vehicles and unusually for a property of this era it also benefits from additional parking for a further three vehicles with allocated spaces located opposite the house.
Once you enter this home through the traditional 1930's style front door you are greeted by a welcoming and spacious entrance hall commencing with bespoke tiled flooring in keeping with the charm and character of the era; the entrance hall also benefits from a double glazed window to the front aspect, radiator, stairs leading up to the first floor and an under-stairs storage cupboard housing the gas and electricity meters as well as the fuse board. A door leads through into the open-plan reception room and kitchen/diner.
The reception room is bright and well-decorated benefitting from a large square bay window to the front aspect, space for electric fire, laminate wood flooring, radiator and TV point. This is open to the superbly appointed open-plan kitchen/dining room - the real heartbeat of the home and ideal to suit the needs of a modern-day family. The dining area has ample space for a large dining table and chairs, featuring a vertical radiator and Herringbone laminate wood flooring.
The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a matching range of soft-close cream shaker style units complemented by wooden worktops. There is ample space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. Built-in Neff "slide and hide" oven and microwave. Herringbone laminate wood flooring and spotlights to ceiling. The kitchen is open to a handy utility room offering Herringbone laminate wood flooring and space for a tumble dryer, washing machine and dishwasher.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a good-size reception room currently being utilised as a playroom with grey laminate wood flooring, vertical radiator, ceiling lantern, spotlights to ceiling and patio doors leading out to the well-maintained rear garden.
Moving up to the first floor there is a bright landing with doors leading off to the three bedrooms and family bathroom. The landing comprises fitted carpet, loft hatch providing access to fully boarded and insulated loft space currently used for storage but offering terrific scope to convert into a master bedroom suite (STPP) as modelled by the neighbouring properties.
The master bedroom is of a very generous size and located to the rear of the property with a double glazed window providing a pleasant view over the rear garden. This bedroom features laminate wood flooring, space for freestanding wardrobes, radiator and TV point. The second bedroom is also a good-size double with double glazed window to the front aspect, laminate wood flooring, radiator and TV point. Heading into the third bedroom, this is a great size single and offers laminate wood flooring, double glazed window to the front aspect, built-in storage cupboard/wardrobe, radiator and TV point.
Last but by in no means least, the family bathroom is sleek and elegant with a roll top bath with chrome mixer tap and chrome wall-mounted rainfall shower, wash hand basin and low level flush WC accompanied by tiled flooring and partly-tiled walls. Obscured double glazed window to the rear aspect.
Externally, the low maintenance west-facing rear garden is a particular feature of this fine property and provides a tranquil space in which to relax and unwind. Commencing with a patio area, step up to a recently-laid artificial lawn area with space for a shed and storage container. The garden lends itself to al-fresco dining and is ideal for BBQ's and get-togethers in the warm Summer months. Tunnel-linked side access shared with next door neighbour.
As previously mentioned, there is a block paved driveway providing parking for two vehicles and in addition there is parking for a further three vehicles with allocated spaces directly opposite the property.

There are over 200 shops in the town centre, a mixture of high street chain stores, specialist shops, restaurants, hairdressers, banks and other retail services.

The number of eateries is in excess of 40, ranging from Thai, through to Indian, Japanese and Italian, to fish & chips and kebabs. Befitting a market town, every Saturday there is a charter market in the town centre and a farmers' market every second Saturday of the month.
