VENDOR INSIGHT This delightful character property, which boasts five exceptionally generous bedrooms, three reception rooms and a stunning 150ft garden, is situated in the village of Woolmer Green, Hertfordshire. "We really loved the relaxed village environment of Woolmer Green," says the owner. "There are some lovely woods to explore, and the village pond and recreation ground are also very popular. There's a real sense of community spirit and it's given us a calm village life, but still it is close enough to Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage, or even London via the main roads or by train."

"The conservatory is probably our favourite room," continues the owner. "It's a light and comfortable space, and it's perfect for sitting with a cup of tea and enjoying the view of the garden. The house itself used to be three cottages, which have now been merged into one, and we have built a major extension to the front, sides and rear to better suit our needs at the time.

"Now, our reason for a move is a change of scenery after 20 years and because our children have grown up and moved on. Our needs are very different compared to what they were when we first bought White Gables, but we will miss the house and the friendly village dearly."


STEP INSIDE Fine & Country are delighted to offer for sale White Gables, a beautifully presented detached character home, set within the historical village of Woolmer Green, Hertfordshire. This stunning five bedroom property offers incredibly substantial accommodation over two floors and a wealth of appealing features, including three reception rooms, a gorgeous kitchen/breakfast room, an impressive Victorian-style conservatory and an extensive 150ft garden with a summerhouse.

After stepping through the front door and into the reception porch, White Gables immediately presents a bright, welcoming atmosphere with a dual aspect to the front and side, a downstairs WC, and a door to a highly generous reception hallway. This luxurious space has been beautifully decorated in a light, contemporary design and offers a glimpse of the quality seen throughout the property. The ground floor further comprises a magnificent kitchen/breakfast room with access to a utility area, a stunning Victorian-style conservatory, three gorgeous reception rooms and a large attached garage.

With a stunning set of inter-connected rooms, much thought and care have been put into the design and flow of White Gables. The kitchen/breakfast room, in particular, is the heart of the home, beautifully designed with oak wood flooring, dark granite work surfaces, strategically placed spotlights, an abundance of light coloured storage units with space for an American-style fridge/freezer, a variety of integrated appliances, and a window to the front. The work surfaces extend into a linked island, perfect for cooking and storage, before giving way to another large area that the current owners are using as a breakfast room. Here, there is space for a large dining table and additional kitchen furniture, as well as double French doors to the garden. The utility room can also be accessed from the kitchen/breakfast room and benefits from further storage units, space for laundry appliances and another washing up sink.

The living room is an incredibly calming, spacious and welcoming area with a dual aspect to front and side, and a stunning feature fireplace, which shows off the original brickwork of the building. Double glass doors provide access to a large family room, almost equal in size, with large French doors to the garden. This room is ideal for children, for a games room or even a music room, depending on requirements, and provides access to a large formal dining area. The dining room is positioned in a central location within White Gables and can be entered from almost all rooms on the ground floor level. This has created a wonderfully bright space, perfect for entertaining guests or hosting more formal dinners, and there is plenty of space for a large dining table as well as additional furniture.

White Gables also boasts a truly beautiful Victorian-style conservatory. This gorgeous room offers lots of space for a variety of conservatory furniture and is the perfect spot to sit and read or admire the garden.

Upstairs continues to impress in both spaciousness and design, comprising grand vaulted ceilings, a wide open plan landing with a front aspect, five incredibly generous bedrooms, including a master suite with its own bathroom, and a large family bathroom.

The master suite is particularly stunning, boasting two walls of integrated wardrobes, a charming Juliet balcony, a window of a garden aspect and its own en suite bathroom, consisting of a shower, a WC and a hand basin. The second bedroom is a very generously sized double and also enjoys a Juliet balcony, which faces the rear garden. The third and fourth bedrooms are similarly a generous double size, benefiting from windows to a front aspect, and the fifth bedroom is a small double or sizeable single with a window to the side. The family bathroom is a bright, luxurious room with a window to a side aspect and comprising a shower cubicle, a separate bath, a WC and a hand basin.

STEP OUTSIDE Outside, to the front, White Gables offers an incredibly attractive approach with mature trees, bushes and shrubbery creating a secluded atmosphere, and the house itself sitting in a central position with a beautifully characterful frontage. To the rear of the property, the conservatory, family room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility area and garage all open onto a delightful paved patio before unfolding into 150ft of wonderfully mature lawns. Alongside a charming sun terrace and summerhouse to the far end, this beautiful garden is encircled by a variety of trees and herbaceous borders, creating a remarkably private and secluded space; perfect for entertaining guests or for relaxing in the sun and watching the world go by.

The house is situated in the historical parish village of Woolmer Green. There are many local facilities to enjoy, including schools, local shops, pubs and a variety of services and activities. The neighbouring village of Knebworth, just over a mile away, provides a fast mainline rail service to London Kings Cross.
