The property

With its attractive Edwardian characteristics, Number 21 is a substantial house with spacious accommodation across two floors offering a rare opportunity to purchase a substantial house in a highly sought after area of St Albans within easy walking distance of the train station and close to excellent schools. The interiors display several period features which include vintage fireplaces, Smallbone alcove dressers, decorative cast-iron door finger plates and picture rails. The ground floor accommodation comprises four reception rooms, two of which showcase the distinctive bay windows, along with a conservatory which benefits from a south and westerly aspect and a generously sized kitchen/breakfast room. A cloakroom is situated beside the dog-leg staircase, which rises from the hallway to the first floor accommodation.

There are five bedrooms, two of which extend into the bay window recesses and three having wash basins. A family bathroom, along with a shower room, complete the accommodation on the upper level.
