VENDORINSIGHT The Meadow is a superb family home in pretty and historic Hunsdon village, surrounded by the gentle Hertfordshire countryside. Simon and Dawn are extremely proud of the stunning house they created from the very sad and unloved building they bought eight years ago.
Simon explains the building exactly matched their requirements of a spacious house and annexe in a village setting, suitable for two generations.As a builder, he could see its vast potential. Today the unremarkable nineteen sixties building has an attractive modern colonial façade, and a sophisticated and delightful interior. The attention to detail is apparent throughout the house.
The village has a long and interesting history stretching back to the reign of Henry the Eighth, when his three children spent much time at Hunsdon House. The friendly village has many clubs centred in the village hall, and there is an active church community. The general store has a post office, and one of the two pubs is renowned for its excellent award winning food.
Located with easy access to Ware, Bishop's Stortford, Stanstead Abbots and Hertford, there is a wide choice of centres for work and leisure opportunities. It is under ten minutes to Harlow station and the A10, making the house ideal for the commuter. The rural tranquillity perfectly combines with the convenience of town life.
Dawn says the house is always drenched with natural daylight, creating an inviting and positive ambience. First time visitors exclaim on the wow factor of a home that has been customised for a chic and comfortable living experience. This charm is accentuated by the ability to throw open the doors in the kitchen and lounge to invite the summer garden in.
The large, well equipped kitchen is a sociable centre for daily family life, and chatty casual dining with friends. The kitchen starred in the first series of 'Couples Come Dine with Me,' when Simon and Dawn were the winners.
The split level lounge is both a stylish entertaining room and a supremely comfortable zone for family relaxation. It is a pleasure to snuggle down on comfy sofas for the evening.
The six bedrooms can readily accommodate overnight guests, and the glorious views across the countryside, from the double aspect of the master bedroom have an enviable appeal. The independent annexe enjoys the many of the same benefits as the main house and is perfect for overflow visitors or extended family living.
The garden is a tranquil and private oasis that wraps around the house, whilst the patio areas have made ideal summer alfresco dining rooms.
Simon and Dawn say that they will take away many happy memories of The Meadows. Creating it was a labour of love and they are happy to pass it on to the next owners who, they are sure will love it in the same way.
