DESCRIPTION Magnolia Cottage is a good size detached family house that has been the subject of considerable improvement in recent years. The house enjoys large windows that allow light to flood into the rooms which further enhances the already spacious accommodation. The kitchen/family room is the hub of the home and has been attractively refitted with a comprehensive range of units complimented by granite worktops and bi folding doors opening out onto the garden. The bedrooms are all good sizes with a lovely en suite to the main bedroom. Throughout the house has been refitted and decorated in a contemporary, yet homely style.

Set just back from the High Road and approached by a good size carriage driveway at the front, the house is particularly well located for those seeking village life yet only minutes from the neighbouring towns of Ware and Hertford.  

STEP INSIDE As soon as you set foot through the front door the large central hallway impresses. Mirrors line one wall and cleverly add to the effect whilst stairs rise up to the first floor with a vaulted ceiling and galleried landing looking over the hall. Off the hall is a luxurious downstairs cloaks/shower room. The dining room is a really good size and great for entertaining friends and family. The living room is large and bright with a huge window to the front aspect and window to the side. A focal point of the room is the feature marble/granite chimney breast with stove.

Across the back of the house is the most impressive kitchen/breakfast/family room. A wonderful space for all the family to congregate in. The kitchen has been attractively and comprehensively refitted with a good range of wall and base units with granite worktops and incorporates a breakfast bar. There is a double oven and hob, cooker hood and fridge freezer. There is a large family area and twin sets of bi fold doors that open onto the large deck and garden. An excellent and social space. Adjoining the kitchen the owners have added a useful, good size utility room with space for all the usual appliances.
Upstairs the landing is a good size and the master bedroom enjoys an en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms and a nicely appointed family bathroom.


STEP OUTSIDE At the front, the house is set just back off the High Road and approached by a large bloc paved carriage driveway that provides parking for several cars. The magnolia tree, that the house takes its name from, is set in the centre of the lawned front garden.

The rear garden has been attractively landscaped and is a good size. Across the back of the house is a large deck that is perfect for entertaining on and steps lead down to the good size lawn. There are raised planters and numerous conifers and shrubs providing privacy and interest through the year. At the foot of the garden is a large garden room with double glazed doors and windows which can easily be a home office, man cave or converted back into a workshop/garage if required. 

NEAREST TOWN - WARE The beautiful market town of Ware, Hertfordshire, is one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe, dating back to the Mesolithic period, around 4000BC. Today, Ware is a bustling market and riverside town with a population of around 19,000.

Ware is located off the A10, with the popular town of Hertford just 3 miles up the road. The town is one of the areas most popular and you really do have the best of both worlds, surrounded by the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, but well connected to London. If you are a commuter or just like to have regular day trips to London you are just 20 miles away by car and with very easy access by Ware train station to London Liverpool Street (approx. 45 mins) or if you prefer from Hertford East station to Liverpool street (approx. 49 mins) or Hertford North Finsbury Park/Kings Cross (approx. 35 mins).

Unlike many towns, Ware has a bustling high street and very much has a social 'café' culture. There is a superb combination of national and local independent stores, restaurants and bars. Of course, there are also all the other amenities anyone could need in the town including a library, doctors, dentists, superstores as well as having Hanbury Manor Hotel and golf course and East Herts golf course just down the road. There are multiple parks and playing fields, Wodson Park sports and leisure centre, walks and stunning locations to sit by or be on the river Lea which runs through the town and surrounding countryside.

With regards to education, you are in one of the best places in the country. You have the prestigious Presdales secondary and sixth form school for girls and Chauncy secondary and sixth form. Of course there are also multiple nursery's and well regarded primary schools.
