Property Ref: 60398


Magnificent 2900sqft detached property built in 1928 and originally designed by Louis de Soissons, the Architect of the original New Town of Welwyn Garden City, a project he was involved with for some 60 years. In a prime location on one of the largest plots in Sherrardspark Road with a wide and impressive Yew hedge frontage and sweeping gravel driveway, it has been very effectively extended to exacting designs by the de Soissons Partnership. The light and spacious ground floor accommodation includes a formal sitting room, hand crafted Terence Allen kitchen, utility room, lounge and dining area, family room and study. On the first and second floors are five double bedrooms, three of which benefit from quality en suite facilities, whilst the remaining two bedrooms share a family bathroom. Of major interest are the formal gardens that were built with the house. With the aid of original photographs and acknowledged garden designer Rosemary Coldstream, these have been lovingly restored to their original concept and have to be seen to be believed.

OUTSIDE

FRONT

To the front of the property is a beautifully designed and maintained garden. It provides off road parking for ample vehicles on a sweeping gravel driveway.
In addition is a gravel path from the road to the house which has a formal lawn to either side interspersed with two formal beds with a specimen cherry. To the front of the house is a low box hedge with specimen shrubs and a wisteria trained to the front of the house. There is also a restored wrought iron gate giving access from the front through to the rear garden.

REAR GARDEN

At the rear of the property is a beautiful split level garden which is the recreation of the original garden built in the 1930s. It consists of three main areas:
To the immediate rear of the house is a circular lawn bounded by low original York stone topped retaining walls. The beds the walls create are planted with a huge variety of plants from annuals to mature evergreens.
To the right-hand side of this is an original Herring-bone in laid brick 1930s pergola running from the house to a glass covered area with summerhouse.
Rising from the lawn is a flight of steps leading to the formal area of the garden. On the immediate right is a paved seating area with a walkway in Indian sandstone bordered by box balls, lavender and step-over apple trees, drawing you to a stone wishing well urn which is the focal point of the garden. This feature is one of the original features of the garden having been brought back from Capri by the original owner in the 1930s. On either side of this walkway are formal rectangular lawns framed by low box hedges behind which there are wide borders with mature trees, shrubs and annuals. Underground watering systems are electronically controlled, along with feature garden lighting. There are additional seating areas to the corners and three separate sheds.
