Property description

The Property: A handsome four bedroom character home that requires a degree of modernisation but could be extended further if required subject to the usual planning consents.

Description: This spacious character semi presents a unique opportunity to redesign and extend and benefits from a lovely wide plot in this peaceful backwater in the heart of Harpenden's Carisbrooke estate.

The property has been in the care of our current clients for over 60 years and is available for what we believe to be only the second time since it was built. Offered for sale with no onward chain the accommodation comprises, on the ground floor; a kitchen overlooking this peaceful street scene. There is a welcoming entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and a living room and dining room at the rear of the house.

Upstairs the first floor presents three generous bedrooms and the family bathroom. The second floor provides a further bedroom with elevated views of trees and gardens.

There is a detached garage to the side of the property, off road parking and to the rear a large lawned garden that provides an exceptional degree of privacy. Blessed with scope to extend, make this your forever home!

Council Tax Band F £3,220.45 April 24/March 25

Location: Carisbrooke Road is a peaceful crescent in the centre of Harpenden mid-way between the excellent Sir John Lawes and Crabtree schools. The mature setting provides a characterful mix of houses built from the early 1900's on and set on mature and private plots. Harpenden's capital connect rail service is just under a 12 minute stroll and the Victorian tree-lined town centre is also within a short walk. The green spaces of the Lea-valley nature reserve and 'Swan Line' river walk are both just moments away.
