The Property:

A classic four bedroom character detached home which has been beautifully extended and completely refurbished. Located in the highly prestigious 'Avenues' close to the town centre.


The Oak House presents an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully extended and refurbished four bedroom detached home in this highly prized 'Avenues' address. The house has been lovingly enhanced by sympathetic interior design over the last five years by the present owners to create an exquisite home with period 'Arts & Craft' charm. Further potential exists to extend the property into the loft, and add a detached garage (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).

The original hard wood front door welcomes you into the generous reception hall featuring French cathedral limestone flooring. The main reception room sits off to the right, with a bow window overlooking the front of the house, an impressive feature fireplace and double doors opening into the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has been stylishly fitted to include bespoke designed units, Neptune oven hood, quartz worktops and an ample space to dine. Two large windows and French doors look out onto the south-facing rear garden.

A further more intimate reception room can be found on the other side of the entrance hall. A wood burning stove adds a wonderful cosy feel for those cold winter evenings. A useful study sits to the rear of this room and there is a well-equipped utility room and a downstairs cloakroom which completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor the large landing is flooded with light with a window overlooking the front of the property. The bedroom accommodation includes a master bedroom with extensive built in storage and a door to a luxuriously appointed en-suite shower room. There is a further door to one of the secondary bedrooms which is currently used as dressing room for the master. There are two additional double bedrooms which are served by a beautifully appointed family bathroom.

Outside, the property enjoys a wide frontage onto the road which provides a gravel drive with off street parking for 3-4 cars and an integrated garage. The rear garden provides an exceptional level of privacy with a patio adjacent to the house ideal for outdoor entertaining. At the side of the house is a separate barked children's play area. The remainder of the garden is largely laid to lawn with mature hedging to the boundaries.


Moreton Avenue is an enviable location situated in the heart of Harpenden's renowned 'Avenues'. The road is characterised by its peaceful and aesthetic appeal that mixes the buildings of the Edwardian Era with a blend of some quality work from later building periods. The wide road and peaceful environment are complimented by a wonderful convenience for living. The area offers exceptional provision for top state schools and Roundwood Park School and St. Georges are within a short stroll of the front door. The Nickey Line, High Street and station (direct to St Pancras International in 30 minutes) are both within walking distance.
