This handsome detached family home was constructed in the 1930s in red brick under a clay tiled roof and would benefit from modernisation and enlargement (subject to normal consents). Boasting a mature plot of approximately 0.25 acre, and set along one of the area's more sought-after residential turnings, the house is set back with a deep frontage and yet is also able to provide a rear garden of approximately 125ft / 38m in length. The bright and mainly original accommodation retains character and currently comprises a central entrance hall with staircase to first floor, spacious dual aspect lounge with fireplace, versatile dining room/ family room, conservatory, kitchen breakfast room, walk-in store cupboard and WC. Upstairs the spacious central landing leads to two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, alongside and a contemporary family shower room (space for bath if required). Outside, the paved driveway to the front provides ample parking space, passes a lawned area and leads to gated side access to a detached garage/store. To the rear, the generously proportioned rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and has a shaped patio, well maintained borders and hedging, and a mature apple tree.
We believe this house to be one of the last few unenlarged original detached homes along St Martins Road and so it provides rare opportunity and scope to improve and extend in this well-regarded location (subject to normal planning consents). This property is offered for sale CHAIN FREE.
Knebworth High Street has shops that cater for daily needs including a chemist, post office, doctors' surgery, two dentists, Co-Op general store, Indian restaurant, Chinese take away, two cafés, wine merchants, independent butcher & a well-regarded junior/mixed infant school. There are C of E & RC churches, a Golf club & recreation ground with tennis courts & bowling green.
