The Glass House is a beautifully designed five-bedroom home which combines a renovated 1950s house, intact with period features, with a seamless modern glass and steel addition. The layout provides large light filled spaces arranged for modern family living.
Set back from the road with a private driveway, the house benefits from a large, secluded plot and is surrounded on three sides with landscape gardens. The expansive glass wall to the main living area and the inter-connected spaces provide an ensemble of rooms all with multiple aspects to the gardens.
Located at the end of a no-through-road in the historic market town of Bishops Stortford, The Glass House is close to the independent shops and restaurants of North Street, picturesque walks along the River Stort, and just a 20-minute walk to the train station which serves London Liverpool Street, Tottenham Hale, and Cambridge. Also nearby is the Bishop’s Stortford College and the ‘Outstanding’ Northgate Primary School.
The internal accommodation comprises; Timber-framed glass entrance with solid oak flooring that runs throughout, sitting room with original Honduras mahogany details and open fireplace, a large and beautiful open plan space flooded with natural light which contains the modern kitchen, integrated appliances, island, and breakfast bar, a dining area and a second seating area surrounded by sliding glass doors which open up onto the elevated hardwood terrace. A large utility room, cloakroom and dedicated service/heating room are also positioned on the ground floor.
The timber clad cube extension is cantilevered above garden level. The master bedroom suite, with floor to ceiling windows, looks out over the garden, and includes a dressing area adjacent to a modern luxury bathroom with rain shower, oversized tub, and skylights
On the first floor a galleried landing leads to four good sized bedrooms, all with dual aspect views and built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom.
Externally to the front of the property there is ample parking with an integral garage. Landscape gardens to the front side and rear wrap the house with privacy and are approximately a quarter of an acre in total. A variety of mature plants surround lawn areas and the external terrace.
