The Property:

A rare opportunity to purchase a substantial and handsome detached family home with a natural blend of period charm and contemporary design, set back off the road perfectly situated close to popular schooling, town centre amenities and mainline train station.


Built in 1926, "The Old Manse" is one of the original and most distinctive houses to be built in Welwyn Garden City and was home to the Minister of the Free Church for over 20 years after the Second World War.

The property has many delightful features and includes an entrance porch with front door opening to a hallway from which there is access to the all rooms. The reception rooms are all beautifully appointed, bright and welcoming and the modern kitchen is fully integrated with an expansive range of wall and base units and marble worktops. The staircase rises to a large first-floor landing, which can also be used as an occasional room with windows overlooking the rear garden. Four double bedrooms and a generously sized single fifth bedroom are served by a stylish family bathroom and there is also a separate shower room. A particular feature of the property is that most rooms have a dual aspect, offering bright and sunny accommodation throughout. For comfort and economy, double glazing and gas to radiator heating is installed throughout.

The property is approached by two separate driveways, one leading to the garage and the other leading to the entrance porch and side gate which opens to the rear garden. Set on an unusually wide plot, the rear garden is well stocked and has an attractive, secluded summerhouse and patio area. The front garden is laid to lawn with a traditional rose border and climbing wisteria along the front of the house.
