Owner info

Owner's Estimate: £2,950,000 | Owner comments: I have lived hear eighteen years bringing up my children. The schools are excellent. We have never had a burglary . The house has been completely redone with no expense spared. You can walk right in. The plot and house are larger than most houses in the area. The location is excellent and half the road at this present time is having the houses knocked down and rebuilt bringing up the property value. It is probably the largest plot in the road with the best views in harpenden. Also very safe for children.

Description of home: Stunning six bedroom modern home definitely with the x factor. As soon as you walk through the door the stunning panoramic views hit you. The house has floor to ceiling folding glass doors making the most of the views from all the rooms. The rooms are on different levels giving it a lot of character and a combination of both high ceilings and regular ceilings. It is a very bright and airy house with very large reception rooms. It is a beautiful family home with lots of room for entertainment. I always say I have the largest garden in harpenden because there are one hundred acres of beautiful green belt views. It also backs onto hammondswick golf course so don't be surprised when you see those golf fanatics in the summer playing golf as early as six o clock in the morning during the summer months.


Best things about home: The views are extremely stunning and through out the year you get to see all the beautiful seasons from the house. You never get bored of seeing the beautiful colours of the sunset. After a hard days work it is great to come home to relax and take in the beautiful views. Pictures cannot justify how lovely they are. The house has been remodelled to bring the views into the house. It's like sitting in the garden all year round. The most beautiful feature of the house is the kitchen/ conservatory which is one huge room where the family cook eat and relax and great for entertainment. The kitchen is a poggenpal kitchen with gaggenau appliances including a regular oven and also a separate steam oven and a built in coffee machine. It is a cooks dream. The house is decorated in beautiful creams and browns to most peoples taste. A lot of time and thought has gone into this beautiful home. A must see.
