On the ground floor this includes an entrance hall, office, kitchen/dining room, utility room, cloakroom, dining room and sitting room. On the first floor there is 23 ft. master bedroom with exposed beams and high vaulted ceilings, a dressing room with built-in wardrobes and an en suite bath room with an oval bath. There are four further bedrooms including a 26 ft. bedroom which is presently used as a games room. The plot extends to 5 acres with private gardens, paddocks and equestrian facilities. The property is situated between Hertford and Bishops Stortford and within close proximity of Ware.
The main entrance hall has double doors leading through to the kitchen/dining room which is 24 ft. long and has pine fronted cottage style kitchen units with built-in double ovens, an induction hob, waste disposal unit, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The quarry tiled floor continues through into the utility room and there are French doors leading out to the garden.
