Herons is a chain-free detached residence situated within the highly regarded Hertfordshire village of Digswell, just a few minutes' walk to Welwyn North train station. The house was constructed by a local builder in 1957/58 for local artist, Ronald Maddox, who produced work for many national companies including the Post Office and British Rail. Ronald became a freelance artist and illustrator in 1962, working initially from the house until the attached studio was built in the late 1960's.
The property does require modernisation but offers vast scope to extend and remodel, subject to the relevant planning consent. Accommodation to the ground floor consists of a dual-aspect living room, separate dining room, fitted kitchen and downstairs cloakroom. The first floor boasts three good-sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. Externally, the house is set on a sizable plot and surrounded by mature, lawned gardens. A driveway at the front provides off-road parking and leads to a garage.
