With its vast potential and abundant space, The Oak Tree invites you to embark on a journey of personalisation, where your dreams can be brought to life, and a truly extraordinary living experience can be crafted.

The Oak Tree is a charming and spacious property located in a highly desirable area close to St Albans city centre. Built circa 1914, this detached home exudes character and offers a warm and inviting atmosphere. Situated on a peaceful tree-lined avenue at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, it provides a tranquil retreat while still being conveniently located near local amenities.

As you step inside, you'll be immediately captivated by the wealth of character features that have been carefully integrated into the neutrally appointed décor scheme. Exposed wood beams, deep bay windows, and a stunning brick fireplace with a modern wood-burning stove create a delightful blend of old-world charm and contemporary comfort. The high ceilings, a characteristic of the era, add a sense of grandeur to the living spaces.

The property has been lovingly maintained by the current owner, although it retains some dated elements. However, this presents an exciting opportunity for the new owner to unleash their creativity and undertake modernisation and enhancements according to their own taste and vision.

Venturing upstairs, the first floor is home to the principal bedroom, boasting a walk-in dressing room with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are two further en suite bedrooms, an additional double bedroom, a single bedroom, and a family bathroom, ensuring ample space and comfort for all family members or guests.

Nestled within a generous plot, The Oak Tree offers a sense of privacy and seclusion. The property is set back from the road and features an ample-sized driveway, providing convenient off-street parking for multiple vehicles, along with a detached double garage. The beautifully landscaped gardens span approximately 1.54 acres and are adorned with mature trees and a large pond, creating a picturesque setting.

A spacious patio area is perfect for al fresco dining, surrounded by tall trees that offer a high degree of privacy. Additionally, there is a versatile 40ft outbuilding comprising a hot tub, gym, and sauna, which holds excellent annexe potential. Several workshops cater to hobbyists or those seeking additional storage space.
