SEMI RURAL LIVING. A fabulous opportunity to acquire a good size 4 bedroom detached family house in a large plot of approximately one acre with outbuildings and planning permission, that has recently expired, to convert stables into a two bedroom annexe. Views over fields.

VENDOR INSIGHT This charming detached countryside home, which boasts four sizeable bedrooms, two reception rooms, gardens of one acre and a large Stable Block and outbuilding, is located in a rural setting midway between the villages of Hare Street and Anstey. "We first fell in love with how private and secluded the house and garden were," explains the owner, "with the villages in easy reach so you have the best of both worlds.

"The acre of garden was also an attractive feature to us. As we said, it's completely private; perfect for entertaining and it's also very easy to maintain. The views over the open countryside are just stunning, and there are some really beautiful trees within the garden itself."

"Our favourite room has to be the lounge with its large windows and the cosy open fireplace, it's a wonderful room to relax in, and it has fantastic views out into the garden where you can see the apple and cherry trees blooming in springtime."

"the house was originally a farmhouse built in the 1930's, and over the years it has been modernised and extended. We've had the privilege of being its owners for 16 years now, and in that time we have done our best to improve it and to ensure it remains in keeping with its original features".

"Full planning permission has been granted, but has recently lapsed, to convert the Stable Block and Store into a self contained two bed annex, this is an option for the future owners to progress if desired."

STEP INSIDE Fine & Country are delighted to offer for sale Cherry Tree House, a wonderfully spacious detached family house, set in a rural location within the parish village of Anstey, Nr Buntingford in East Hertfordshire. This charming four bedroom property offers a wealth of attractive features, including generous living accommodation, two bright and spacious reception rooms, a large utility area, two bathrooms, a gorgeous garden of approximately one acre, a 290 sqft workshop and a 1100sqft stable block with full planning permission to be converted into a self-contained two bedroom Annexe. (Agents Note: The planning permission has recently expired and will need to be renewed with the local authority, we would expect this to be a straight forward process but interested parties must make their own enquiries)

Upon entry through the front door, Cherry Tree House immediately presents a large welcoming entrance hallway with a staircase to the first floor and access to the family room, living room/diner, kitchen and downstairs bathroom. To the rear of the house on the ground floor is a spacious utility area with large windows to two aspects and door opening into the gardens.

The living room is a particularly large and bright room with four large windows to three aspects, a charming open fireplace with a lovely stone surround and hearth. There is copious space for both living and dining furniture. Similarly, the family room is another bright room having windows to two aspects and would suit a children's playroom, a formal dining room or further guest accommodation if required. A large useful family shower room is ideally located on the ground floor and benefits from a window to the rear garden, a separate shower cubicle, WC and hand basin.

The kitchen has been beautifully decorated in duck egg colours and boasts an abundance of wall and base storage units, space and plumbing for a dishwasher, and integrated kitchen appliances, including an oven, hob, extractor fan and fridge/freezer. This is a very attractive room with a large window to a side aspect, pretty green floor tiles, strategically placed spotlights and another window looking out into the utility area. The utility room is particularly large and benefits from extensive storage units, cupboards and work surfaces, a separate sink and space for two washing machines and a tumble dryer. This is a bright useful room and opens onto the garden.

Upstairs, Cherry Tree House continues to offer spacious accommodation and a large landing area with access to four generously sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is attractive with charming sections of sloped ceiling and is especially sizeable with two large windows to the side. The further three bedrooms are similarly bright and charming with sections of sloped ceiling, typical of a house of this age and design, and each has large windows and overlook the gardens. The family bathroom is also nicely designed, comprising a bath, hand basin, WC and a window.

STEP OUTSIDE Outside, to the front, Cherry Tree House enjoys a wide frontage with gated access and a private drive leading up to the house and stables. The property itself is surrounded by an acre of mature land, fruit trees and shrubs, as well as high border hedges providing good degrees of privacy. There is a pretty, fenced off secluded pond area and a driveway that provides parking for several vehicles. A useful shed/workshop of approximately 290sqft is set to one side of the plot.

Cherry Tree House also boasts a wonderful Stable Block and outbuilding of 1100sqft, which has the added benefits of lighting, power and full planning permission, which has recently lapsed, to be converted into a self-contained, single-story Annexe if required. This Annexe would comprise a sizeable kitchen/dining room, a living room with French doors to the rear garden, two large bedrooms and a family bathroom. Further details of the plans for this conversion can be requested from Fine & Country. A renewal of the planning permission would be required and whilst we believe should be straight forward all interested parties should make their own enquiries via East Herts DC.

LOCATION Cherry Tree House is situated just outside the villages of Hare Street and Anstey and is well placed for those seeking a semi rural lifestyle without the feeling of being isolated. The neighbouring market town of Buntingford is nearby and provides for most everyday needs with a delightful old high street lined with shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants with a large Co Op supermarket and excellent well regarded schools.

Stations are also not too far away in Ware (11 miles) or Royston (7 miles), both bustling and pretty market towns with more extensive amenities and rail connections into London.

Throughout the surrounding countryside are footpaths and bridleways and for golfers, East Herts, Whitehills and Barkway Golf courses are also closeby.
