A stylish home with character set behind a discreet gated frontage in this desirable Hertfordshire village.
Grays offers delightfully well balanced family accommodation with some lovely reception spaces featuring high ceilings and a magnificent fireplace in the main drawing room.
On the ground floor there are two further reception spaces - a large dining room and family room off the kitchen together with a useful playroom/study. The kitchen/breakfast area is a modern room with a range of wall and base units complemented by granite top work surfaces, a 5 zone extra wide induction hob and a kitchen island with built in microwave. There is a utility room off the kitchen opening onto the garden.
Upstairs there are four very reasonable bedrooms, the master suite features a his and hers dressing room together with a sumptuous en suite bathroom and power shower. The second bedroom, also of a decent size, features its own en suite with power shower. The two remaining bedrooms on the first floor share the family bathroom.
Additionally on the ground floor there is another bedroom suite (bedroom five) with a fully fitted kitchen, shower room and its own independent access to the gardens and side entrance to the property. Adjacent - bedroom six is currently used as a large home office with views over the front courtyard and separate access to the shower room.
The entire ground floor hallway benefits from a natural limestone floor that continues into the kitchen, laundry, family TV room, and dining room. Many of the rooms enjoy views over either gardens or elevated views towards open countryside and Sidehill Woods at the rear.
The gardens themselves are enclosed by a stock brick wall. This provides a wonderful safe environment. Steps from the patio to the side and rear of the house lead down to a lawn and the outdoor heated swimming pool with a retractable all weather child safety cover and is served by its own filtration and gas boiler system. To the side of the house there are various garden storage and shed areas together with the detached double garage with a high pitched roof for storage and an electric up and over door. The current owners are in the process of obtaining "Permitted Development Rights" planning permission for a large over garage triple aspect office space with separate stairway access and elevated views over Bluebell Woods and the skyline beyond. .. The plans are available to view.
The parking area is set behind electronically controlled gates with additional parking situated opposite the driveway.

Secluded living yet right in the middle of the village an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of the City yet still within striking distance of the local shop, pub and some wonderful country walks.Justin Godfrey
