Ensum Brown are delighted to offer this exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a superbly presented three bedroom two bathroom unique end of terrace property peacefully positioned in this quaint and desirable gated development of mews homes. The present vendor purchased this lovely home from new in 2016 and it offers surprisingly spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. An internal viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate all the noteworthy features.

Approaching the property it's perfectly positioned set back off West End Lane and secure double gates give access to the courtyard setting leading to these mews homes. No. 6 Orme Court is located on the right-hand side as you enter through the gates and there are two allocated parking spaces along with a visitor's parking space available on a first-come first-served basis. The entrance to the property is welcoming with bespoke iron railings with steps leading down to a gate providing side access.

Once inside, you are greeted by a bright and welcoming entrance hall with fitted carpet, stairs rising to the first floor accommodation and stairs leading down to the lower entrance hallway. The secure alarm system is also positioned in the entrance hall with a wall-mounted control unit.

Moving down into the lower entrance hallway, this features grey wood effect laminate flooring, a large under-stairs storage cupboard and spotlights. Doors provide access to the utility room, shower room/WC, third bedroom and the stunning open-plan kitchen/living/dining space which really needs to be viewed in the flesh to be appreciated.

Starting with the utility room, this is a handy space fitted with a range of white wall and base units complemented by laminate worktops and a stainless steel sink with drainer plus a chrome mixer tap. There's also space and plumbing for a washing machine. Other benefits include grey wood effect laminate flooring, spotlights and an extractor.

Going into the luxury shower room, this is fitted with a tasteful suite comprising of a wash hand basin with chrome mixer tap and storage cupboards under, low level push flush WC and an enclosed shower cubicle with chrome wall-mounted shower. Complementary features include grey wood effect laminate flooring, spotlights, chrome heated towel rail and an obscured double glazed window facing the front of the property.

The third bedroom is a good-size double bedroom which is currently being used as a hobby room to cater to the current vendor's requirements but it could easily be changed into a bedroom if so required and it's a great versatile room featuring grey wood effect laminate flooring, double glazed window to the front aspect and a radiator.

Now we head into the open-plan kitchen/living/dining room which is clearly the hub of this home with a fantastic sociable space ideal for entertaining and socialising with friends and family. There are three designated areas all of which offer under-floor heating and although it's an open-plan space there's a division between the three areas which works very well. The living area is cosy offering spotlights, TV point and ample space for furniture.

Moving through to the kitchen, this is fitted with a comprehensive range of white wall and base units complemented by quartz worktops and a 1.1/2 bowl sink with drainer plus chrome mixer tap. There's an integrated dishwasher, built-in double oven, ample cupboard space, a 5-ring hob and stainless steel extractor plus space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. Another particular feature is the breakfast bar with space for two chairs.

The dining area is positioned at the back of the room and it forms part of the ground floor extension offering a superb roof lantern which provides a lot of natural light and there's bi-folding doors which open out to the rear garden. Featuring grey wood effect laminate flooring and spotlights along with space for an 8-seater dining and chairs.

Going back through the inner entrance hallway and up the stairs you are welcomed by a spacious and bright first floor landing with fitted carpet and spotlights. Doors lead off to the two double bedrooms on this level and the family shower room/WC.

The principal bedroom is a very generous double bedroom which boasts a great deal of natural light thanks to the two velux windows and the double glazed window overlooking the rear garden which provides lovely far-reaching views across the neighbouring countryside. There's a range of built-in wardrobes along with space for a dressing table with the room featuring fitted carpet and spotlights.

Heading back across the landing and into the second bedroom, this is another well-proportioned dual-aspect bedroom with double glazed windows to the front and rear with the rear window providing the lovely far-reaching views. Other benefits include fitted carpet, spotlights and space for freestanding wardrobes plus additional furniture.

Completing the first floor of this home is the well-appointed family shower room/WC which is tastefully fitted with a three piece suite comprising of a wash hand basin with chrome mixer tap and storage cupboards under, low level push flush WC and an enclosed corner shower cubicle with chrome wall-mounted shower.

The current vendor has advised that there is a monthly service charge of circa £60 and this is paid by each resident towards the upkeep and general maintenance of communal areas at the development.

Essendon is a village and civil parish in Hertfordshire, 6 miles south-west of Hertford. For commuting, there is a direct train service to London’s Kings Cross and Moorgate from Brookmans Park and Potters Bar Stations.

The village is on the B158 road 330 feet (100m) above sea level and has a view of the Lea Valley to the north. Although on an ancient site, St Mary's parish church dates mainly from the 17th and 18th centuries and was restored in 1883. The west tower dates from the 15th century and has eight bells, the oldest cast in 1681. There is a village pub named The Rose and Crown.

Historic houses in the parish include Camfield Place which was the home of the novelist Barbara Cartland and visited by Beatrix Potter. Nearby is Holwell Court, a Grade II listed building, built in about 1900 for Sir Ernest George; it is now converted to private apartments.

Essendon Place was the seat of the Barons Dimsdale of Russia; Thomas Dimsdale was an expert on the treatment of smallpox by inoculation and in 1768 he was invited to Russia to inoculate Catherine the Great. For his services there he was made a baron of the Russian Empire.[3]

Bedwell Park is another manor house near to the village and is also the site of Essendon Country Club golf club. Bedwell End was the home of Deneys Reitz, High Commissioner for the Union of South Africa, until his death on 19 October 1944. At the outbreak of the Second Anglo-Boer War he joined the Boer forces at the age of seventeen and accompanied General J. C. Smuts on his famous raid in the Cape Colony, of which Reitz wrote in his autobiography, Commando. In World War I, as a lieutenant-colonel, he commanded the 1st Royal Scots Fusiliers on the Western Front in France.

Essendon, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, is named after the village. Richard Green (1808-1878), whose father Isaac Green was either owner or tenant of Essendon watermill on the River Lea, arrived in Victoria in the 1850s and gave the name to the district.

Pay a visit to this charming and idyllic village, you may never want to leave!
