York Road, St. Albans, Hertfordshire
Positioned in a highly desirable no-through road, overlooking Clarence Park, and close to the mainline railway station. this beautifully renovated Edwardian property is a perfect example of how to update a period property into an impressive, modern family home but yet still maintaining the charm and character of its era. Stylish interiors, a well-designed floor plan and high ceilings create a sense of space and effortless style in this four double bedroom, four receptions abode, whilst original wood doors and staircase, sliding sash windows, and open fireplace to name but a few create a warming and welcoming ambience. At the heart of the home and an entertainers delight is the stunning open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room, which flows into the separate dining room. The kitchen is handmade and equipped with \'Miele\' appliances, a feature island and plenty of storage. The family/living area is the perfect place for family gatherings and entertaining, where French style doors open to bring the outside in. The sitting room to the front of the property with its open fireplace, is the perfect place for cosy nights. Luxury continues on two further levels with four double bedrooms, two en-suites and a family bathroom. Externally is a beautiful, landscaped and well established rear garden, and to the front a shingled driveway provides off road parking for 3 vehicles. A further feature outside is the home office/gym located to the rear of the property which has multiple uses and would be a teenagers dream retreat.
