Offering generous and well proportioned rooms with a beautiful master bedroom suite, four further double bedrooms, a classical hallway, three lovely reception rooms, a large conservatory/garden room, three reception rooms, cellar, Farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, pantry, triple garage.

VENDOR INSIGHT "Bowlers Green House is an attractive classical Edwardian house that has been a perfect home for our family. We have always loved the symmetry of the house and it retains many of the original features, including fireplaces with tiled surrounds, beautiful oak panelling and high ceilings," say the vendors.
"We believe that we've achieved a sympathetic renovation in keeping with the original character of the house whilst renewing practically everything. Although it is a beautiful, period property, it has been updated to meet modern living requirements. We also added a conservatory which has become the heart of our home and where we like to relax and entertain."

"The location within Buntingford is ideal. We benefit from easy access to everything that the High Street has to offer, including a Sainsbury's Local, a Co-op and a selection of independent shops including Toby's excellent cheese shop. A new restaurant, run by a Michelin starred chef, is due to open soon. Whilst we are in the centre of the town we enjoy a sense of seclusion and total privacy and it is very quiet at night time. There are several park spaces around the town and it's just a 10-minute walk to the surrounding countryside. There are lots of activities to get involved with, including tennis, bowls and keep fit boot-camps, as well as the parks with play equipment for children. There is a swimming pool at Freman College. There are good state schools in Buntingford as well as private schools locally, and our children both attended schools in Cambridge for part of their education."

"The garden is fully enclosed and enjoys the sun all day long. There was plenty of room for a full-size trampoline and swings for our children when they were little, and the patio area is the ideal spot to relax and look up at the blue sky and trees. There is plenty of room for parking and access via gates at the front and side of the house."

Favourite room?
"Probably the conservatory because it has created such bright beautiful space with views of the garden, but we also spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It has a large, round table in the middle where we can gather for family meals."

Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area?
"We really like the privacy as we are surrounded by trees and high hedges, yet we're just a short stroll away from the High Street, which is full of character and lovely old buildings. Buntingford is surprisingly accessible from London. Broxbourne Station, for example, is less than 25 minutes away and provides access to the City, West End and Canary Wharf."

Memorable event?
Our older daughter's 18th birthday party when we erected a marquee in the garden and had around 80 guests sharing the event.

What they'll miss most / why they are leaving?
"Bowlers Green House is a fabulous family home and we will miss everything about it, but it's now just myself and my husband and we are downsizing to our property in Cornwall."
