SELLERS INSIGHT "We moved into this house from our home in London, looking for countryside and a village life, while easily being able to return to London for work and nightlife. Our original plan was to stay for a few years and move on, but we quickly settled and ended up enjoying a wonderful 17 years in the village. Our children were born here, and attended the local village primary school, only a short walk from our house. Now teenagers, they’ve been able to attend the local secondary schools in Hertford and Ware. The whole family have loved our regular walks to the lakes, river, and nature reserve at the end of the lane, and the choice of pubs and restaurants in the village has been great for days and evenings out with friends and family. We’ve fitted perfectly in this house for many years, only now needing to move on to give our older family a new base and some different experiences. We have loved living in our happy family home".
