This Classic Property With A Modern Twist Could Be Yours!

9th May 2014

Properties that exude old world charm possess various distinctive decorative elements and a certain energy that are lacking in contemporary architecture.

Examples of Victorian-style architecture can be found throughout the UK and are identifiable through decorated roof lines and slates, bay and stained glass windows, and fireplaces in every room.

A Victorian property that encompasses each of these features can be found in the heart of Bushey Heath, Hertfordshire. Referred to as Heath Cottage, this Victorian-style home was built pre-1877 and is due to become a Locally Important Listed Building due to its ‘architectural and historical significance, and contribution to the local streetscape’.

A unique double-fronted detached property which has recently undergone complete refurbishment, it exudes character and has been renovated in such a way that it embraces the original features of the home. With a focus on excellent design and the highest level of build quality and specification, this home is an excellent example of attention to detail.

Complete with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the property is set back from the High Road with a large forecourt that offers ample off-street parking. 

Internal features include 2 reception rooms, gas central heating, a guest cloakroom, a separate study, and a newly fitted contemporary kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is complete with granite work surfaces and integrated Neff appliances including a Neff oven, microwave combination oven, full height fridge, freezer, integrated dishwasher, induction hob, extractor, and pull-out larder cupboard. There is also a separate utility room with space for a washing machine and dryer. 

Additionally, the property benefits from a compact rear garden with newly laid lawn and raised planters. This area also houses a large detached garage which could be used as a home office, workshop, cinema room, or dedicated playroom. 

Decorated throughout in a neutral palette which is in keeping with the original style of the home, the hues and finishes ultimately enhance the characteristics of the property. While the home has been updated to a modern standard, many of the traditional features have been kept in place. These include the original ornate fireplaces, doors and balustrades - all of which have been elegantly restored. 

An abundance of natural light is evident throughout the house courtesy of large bay windows in many of the rooms.

Within a short distance to Bentley Priory, local shops, bus and transport links, as well as state and private schools, this period property is the perfect family home.

This property is available for £875,000.
