A five-bedroom detached house in St Albans, cherished by one family since 1937, is up for sale with a guide price of £2,350,000.

According to the estate agents Cassidy and Tate, it occupies "a prime location," making it an attractive proposition for families with school-going children.

Situated on York Road, the property provides a fantastic view of Clarence Park.

The house is also conveniently close to City Station, putting it within easy commuting distance.

Built around 1910, the house showcases high ceilings, bay windows, and handsome period detailing, including decorative cornice and picture rails.

Originally constructed as a single residence, it was subsequently divided into two maisonettes, but planning has now been submitted for it to be "restored back into one residence."
