We will keep a safe distance but be there to answer any questions you may have. If you have had any symptoms of the Coronavirus, we ask you to wait 14 days before joining us on a viewing.

Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this substantial split level 5 bedroom detached home located on a plot in the region of one third of an acre (subject to survey). Located in the always popular village of Dane End, rarely do properties come available on prestigious tree-lined Pearman Drive, where there are just a handful of homes. This particular home is in the prime elevated position at the top of the cul-de-sac, surrounded by stunning views over open countryside providing peace and privacy yet with excellent communications links.
Over many years and in different phases, this property has been thoughtfully extended and now offers light, spacious and extremely flexible accommodation in excess of 3500sq ft. Upon entering the property, you immediately get that sense of space and light in the property, with a particularly generous entrance hall, which has a useful cloaks storage cupboard and cloakroom off. You have 5 reception rooms in the property, which can be used as desired. The main reception room, the living room, is to the front of the property and features a vaulted ceiling, giving an even greater sense of space and this is a feature of many rooms throughout the property. There are full height picture windows to the front and French doors give access to the generous front garden and terrace which, with its west facing aspect is ideal for sitting in the afternoon and early evening sun. The last feature of the living room is the secret den, we will let you try and discover this when you view!
Further reception rooms on the ground floor include a music room with a set of double doors opening to the garden room and also the study which has dual aspect views over the open countryside, this is a great place to work. The heart of this home though has to be the open plan kitchen breakfast room, snug, dining area and garden room, this is just what everyone looks for in the modern home and is a great place to spend time with the family or to entertain. The dining area can accommodate large parties and has double doors opening to the sunken patio that extends the entertaining area and is a sun trap in summer. The garden room with its glass ceiling also gives access to the rear gardens, you step down from here into the dining area and then to the snug with a fantastic log burner, ideal for the cosy winter evenings. The kitchen area is generous in size and once again overlooks the rear garden, this has a breakfast bar as part of the granite work surfaces and the kitchen has all the space for built in appliances that you expect to find in a modern home. Also there is the benefit of a large utility/laundry room, providing excellent additional space for keeping all the noisier appliances out of ears' reach and it also has an excellent larder and drying cupboard.
From the entrance hall you can access the integral double garage that features an electric door and has a boiler room to the rear. There is also a car port externally to the side and together with the garage have the potential to incorporate into further accommodation, or even an annexe for example if desired. Going to the first floor, this feels equally as spacious with the vaulted ceilings throughout. You have 5 double bedrooms in total, two of which have access to a rear balcony to enjoy the stunning views. The guest bedroom has its own en-suite facilities and the master bedroom itself is generous in size, has a dressing area with multiple deep wardrobes and with a large en-suite bathroom.
One of the most impressive features of this home has to be the outside space. The gardens wrap round the property and the rear garden is both generous in size and completely private. Surrounded by trees to the rear, backing on to the Dane End House estate, and with countryside views for miles, you feel you are deep in the countryside yet you are just a short walk from the centre of the village, just a 10-15 minute drive to the riverside towns of Hertford and Ware and close to national railway stations with direct access to the capital. The gardens are beautifully maintained and on several levels and includes a large sunken paved patio area with water feature. Driveway parking to the front of the property provides parking for multiple vehicles, especially useful if you have a growing family.
At the bottom of the road you have a recreation ground and park and in the heart of the village you have an excellent village shop, 'The Boot' pub and restaurant, a highly regarded primary school and All Saints church is within easy walking distance. The property is in the catchment area for both Presdales and Richard Hale schools, just two of the excellent schools in the area and is also well placed for local independent schools such as Haileybury, St Edmund's College or Heath Mount School.
Ensum Brown cannot recommend highly enough a viewing of this superb property to fully appreciate the property on offer for sale, the further potential it still yet offers and also the idyllic setting. We assure you, you will not be left disappointed.
