FAMILY TREES - ON THE LEVEL ****** GUIDE PRICE £650,000 - £675,000 ******

Set on a leafy plot in Digswell, the single-storey house is ready and waiting for new owners to move in – and also holds great potential for possible extension or remodelling.


Every time the owner of the property on Station Road returns to the house she remembers the many happy times she and her relatives spent there. The generous, single-storey home has been in her family for over 50 years now and has been the backdrop to birthdays, Christmases and many other special occasions. “It is a lovely house and is a very good size,” she explains. “In particular, it has an enormous sitting room, where lots of people can gather together. It is very sunny and light and has beautiful gardens. It is also in a great location for both Digswell and Welwyn Garden City. The house has been perfect for our family for all this time and could now also be exactly what another family is looking for.”


Built in 1972 by her grandmother, the three-bedroom house sits comfortably on land that was already owned by the family. “My grandma designed and built it as a place to retire to,” she recalls. “She was already living in the house that is now next door. It had a very a good-sized plot and so building another home within the grounds was ideal. My father also went on to live at the new house.” Over the years, the property has been well-maintained and upgraded as necessary. Sitting very comfortably within its mature plot, it originally had an attached garage. This was later converted into a third bedroom and a separate, detached garage was built. “This house still holds a huge amount of potential for other changes,” she observes. “It is ready for someone to move straight into but if they did wish to update, remodel or extend it (subject to the relevant planning permissions) there are lots of options.”


The property is currently entered via a central front door, which opens into the reception hall. To the left is the first bedroom, a dual-aspect room that looks out over the garden to the front and side. “This is a particularly light bedroom,” she says. Opposite this room is the kitchen dining room, which has ample space for a breakfast table and features a door that opens on to the outside space, where there is access to a workshop or store room. “The kitchen is a very nice room,” she says. “It opens into the third bedroom, which is also dual aspect. This is an unusual place for a bedroom, so new owners may wish to use it as a playroom, family room or formal dining room instead, perhaps. This house is very flexible in terms of how you arrange the rooms.” She adds: “Someone may also wish to consider removing the wall between the kitchen and this bedroom to create a spacious, family kitchen dining room.”


The family bathroom and second bedroom are also off the central hall. The second bedroom also has windows on two sides and takes in pleasant views out across the leafy garden. Double doors from the hall open into the magnificent sitting room, which is triple-aspect and has French windows on to the garden. “This is such a large room – you could even make it into two reception rooms if you wished.” Here there is ample space for a comfortable seating or television area and for dining furniture. New owners could consider having a work corner or children’s playroom section in here too and could possibly consider adding more doors on to the garden if they wished.


Given the size of the garden and the space around the house, there could certainly be scope for extension out at ground-floor level. New owners could consider remodelling the living space inside and increasing the footprint of the property to add a stylish, contemporary, open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, as well as more bedrooms and bathrooms. “I have often thought it would be good to look at the possibility of going up into the loft to crea
