Set in lovely grounds extending to 0.7 acres is The Cedars, a versatile six bedroom family home which has been re-modeled throughout to an extremely high standard.
Situated in the popular and sought-after village of Studham, within easy reach of Berkhamsted, Harpenden and Hemel Hempstead, with good road links to the M1 and Luton Airport. Local attractions include Whipsnade Zoo, the Dunstable Downs and Ivinghoe Beacon.
Opening onto the beautiful rear garden, the whole back wall of the house is fitted with handmade bifold doors which open onto a decked area and create a stunning backdrop. The extensive kitchen/dining/family room makes the most of the views - a stunning lantern light adds to the feeling of airiness and spaciousness. The kitchen’s leathered granite work surfaces complement the high gloss cabinets, which are further enhanced by a large central island and porcelain flooring with under floor heating. The dining/family area with atrium is flooded with natural light and opens to the sitting room with open fireplace that makes this a cosy place to enjoy the colder evenings.
The master bedroom makes the most of the delightful setting, with two sets of French doors opening to the rear gardens. Both the master and the guest bedroom have luxurious en suite bathrooms and the two further downstairs bedrooms share another bath/shower room.The ground floor is completed by the expansive and elegant entrance hallway, wraparound corridor and utility area.
Upstairs the property offers yet more versatile family accommodation as well as extensive storage, with two further bedrooms, with fully fitted cupboards, large shower room and an additional sitting room/study area. The bedrooms open onto easily accessible and expansive storage areas. Light floods these rooms through velux windows and a glass door leading to a Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens.
The grounds and gardens at The Cedars are a particular delight. From a decked terrace, steps lead to a wide, level lawn. A perfect family space with seating areas, flowering bushes and mature trees. Post and rail fencing encloses the grounds, affording beautiful views across open countryside. Gated access to a copse leads to footpaths to Studham Village, with its two family-friendly pubs and active and welcoming church, Whipsnade and on to Dunstable Downs. To the front of the house, set well back from the peaceful road, two impressive cedar trees give the property its name and adjoin a large driveway allowing for ample off street parking. To the side, sits a triple length garage that offers further development potential (STTP) for an entirely self-contained annexe.
The Cedars offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a stunning home in a beautiful village with an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated school, plus an array of private schools nearby and great transport links to London and Milton Keynes. A must-see family home. EPC rating: C
