A five-bedroom detached house in Harpenden is up for sale with a guide price of £2 million despite being in need of "significant repair".

Whittaker & Co, the seller's representative estate agent, claims that despite requiring significant repair, the property, tucked away in the sought-after West Common area on Harpenden Road, boasts a wealth of living and entertaining space.

Built around 12 years ago, the property known as Redwood House is arranged over four floors, featuring well-proportioned rooms.

The house has nearly 5,500 sq ft, including function-specific rooms such as a drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast/family room, study, cloakroom, games room, and utility room.

For film enthusiasts, a home theatre is also included in the property's layout.

Each bedroom puts comfort at the forefront, with the largest featuring both a dressing area and en-suite bathroom.

The house occupies approximately 0.3 acres inclusive of a 100 ft south-facing garden.

Whittaker & Co affirms that the location offers the ideal balance between tranquillity and accessibility, being set on a peaceful cul-de-sac near the charming Rothamsted Estate while remaining within easy reach of Harpenden Town Centre.

Redwood House also spots two garages providing ample parking space.

This sizable home could prove to be an intriguing proposal for families seeking space and comfort with potential for personalisation or investors with an eye for potential, considering its features and prime location, especially given its chain-free status.
