Available on the market for the first time in over 40 years, Ensum Brown are proud to offer for sale this fine detached family house that was built in 1937 by local builders of excellent repute, Crook Bros of Ware. The property has been a happy family home during this time and has benefitted from many improvements but still offers great scope to extend and improve for those who wish to do so.

It's a pleasure to still see the traditional bay fronted living room and a separate dining room. The good size kitchen/breakfast room at the back of the house looks over the large rear garden and is complimented by an adjoining utility room. Also enjoying the garden is a delightful conservatory. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three generous doubles and a large single together with a family bathroom and an en suite to the top floor bedroom.

An obvious feature of the house is the wonderful garden. The plot extends to about a quarter of an acre and is one of the largest in the road. At the rear of the house is a delightful patio and the garden stretches 160' to the rear boundary.

Little Widbury is considered one of the best addresses in Ware. It is a private road in an elevated position and the house enjoys great views over the town and into the distance over the valley. The High Street and Ware station are both within a mile walk and there are beautiful country and riverside walks virtually on the doorstep.

The front door leads into a traditional hallway with stairs up to the first floor and a downstairs cloakroom/wc off. At the front of the house is a lovely, good size, bay fronted living room with fireplace and with views to the front over the surrounding area. The separate dining room is at the rear of the house with fireplace and doors opening into the conservatory. The conservatory is a lovely addition to the original house and takes full advantage of the large gardens that it opens onto. The kitchen/breakfast room has been extended and benefits from a good range of traditional units with windows overlooking the rear garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a useful utility room. The kitchen also benefits from having direct access at the side into the adjoining garage/workshop.

Upstairs, on the first floor, the landing leads into the three bedrooms. At the front is the main bedroom. A lovely bright room with plenty of space for wardrobes and benefiting from its own shower cubicle. There is a further double bedroom at the rear overlooking the garden and a large single bedroom. Also off the landing is the family shower room. A full size staircase leads up to the top floor where there is a further double bedroom with an en suite bathroom.

Outside, approached at the front by a large driveway that provides ample parking and leads to the garage. There is a large lawn with borders to the front of the house. The lovely long rear garden extends to around 160' in length. To the rear of the house is a good size patio with steps that lead up to the main garden which is laid to lawn with numerous mature shrubs and flower beds together with vegetable garden, a greenhouse, a summerhouse and large garden shed/workshop.

The beautiful market town of Ware, Hertfordshire, is one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe, dating back to the Mesolithic period, around 4000BC. Today, Ware is a bustling market and riverside town with a population of around 19,000.

Ware is located off the A10, with the popular town of Hertford just 3 miles up the road. The town is one of the areas most popular and you really do have the best of both worlds, surrounded by the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, but well connected to London. If you are a commuter or just like to have regular day trips to London you are just 20 miles away by car and with very easy access by Ware train station to London Liverpool Street (approx. 45 mins) or if you prefer from Hertford East station to Liverpool street (approx. 49 mins) or Hertford North Finsbury Park/Kings Cross (approx. 35 mins).

Unlike many towns, Ware has a bustling high street and very much has a social 'café' culture. There is a superb combination of national and local independent stores, restaurants and bars. Of course, there are also all the other amenities anyone could need in the town including a library, doctors, dentists, superstores as well as having Hanbury Manor Hotel and golf course and East Herts golf course just down the road. There are multiple parks and playing fields, Wodson Park sports and leisure centre, walks and stunning locations to sit by or be on the river Lea which runs through the town and surrounding countryside.

With regards to education, you are in one of the best places in the country. You have the prestigious Presdales secondary and sixth form school for girls and Chauncy secondary and sixth form. Of course there are also multiple nursery's and well regarded primary schools.

If you don't live in Ware already, then look no further for your next home!
