    About this property

    • This very charming semi-detached home was built circa 1904 and offers a wealth of character features which have been sympathetically incorporated into the much-improved and modernised décor scheme. There are solid wood floors and doors, picture rails, a handsome brick fireplace inset with a modern wood-burning stove, and high ceilings characteristic of the era. These are beautifully complemented by sleek white kitchen cabinetry by Planet Furniture in nearby Hitchin, updated bath and shower rooms and a neutral colour scheme throughout. The house is beautifully presented and is ready for immediate occupation, with the blank canvas interiors ready for easy personalisation by the new owner.

      The accommodation is deceptively spacious and features four reception rooms and five good-size bedrooms. The house is arranged over three floors, with a useful basement space with lightwell which we are informed by the sellers is already tanked and could be converted to a family room. On the ground floor, an entrance hall opens to a living room, separate study ideal for homeworking, a cloakroom with w.c. and a reception room which is open plan to a conservatory/garden room overlooking the rear garden. There is also a dining room which is open to the kitchen and offers a great space for entertaining at home. The kitchen opens to a utility room and a garden store. Upstairs the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom, while the four additional bedrooms share a family shower room.

      The property is set well back from the road behind a gated tarmac driveway which offers ample private off-street parking. The front garden is lawned with hedges to either side for privacy, while to the rear there is a charming and very secluded garden which has a favourable southerly aspect ensuring excellent natural light. The garden has been landscaped to include a seating area on a paved terrace adjoining the house, a lawn studded with fruiting apple, plum, quince and cherry trees and a large magnolia. Towards the rear is an impressive kitchen garden with a Hartley greenhouse available by separate negotiation.
