    About this property

    • This most charming cottage is situated within a tucked-away plot surrounded by mature trees, close to the heart of Hertingfordbury village and minutes from both Hertford and Welwyn Garden City. The cottage is believed to have been built circa 1900 and has been beautifully preserved with a variety of character features remaining, including a brick fireplace, exposed timber beams and the original arched windows with mullioned panes. The property likely formed part of Hertingfordbury Mill, operational until 1933, and is believed to have been the former miller's home. The house has been in the same ownership for the last 30 years and, though modernised to an extent, is somewhat dated internally and would benefit from further improvement and cosmetic modernisation to bring it up to its full and considerable potential. The reception rooms, of which there are two generous spaces plus a study/snug which could be used as a bedroom, are both a generous size and offer space for both formal and informal entertaining. The kitchen, though old-fashioned, has a fabulous AGA range stove and a hatch through to the dining room, which could be knocked though to create an open plan space if desired (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).

      In total the accommodation extends to approximately 1576 sq ft across two floors, though there is good potential to extend or reconfigure the layout, subject to the usual planning consents. The house is entered via an external porch leading onto an entrance hall, which has doors to a ground floor shower room with w.c., the main dining room which is open plan to the sitting room, the kitchen and adjoining utility room and a useful third bedroom/study. Upstairs the principal bedroom is accessed through a dressing room with built-in storage, while the second bedroom is spacious and features fitted wardrobes. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.

      Within the garden there are two detached outbuildings: a timber' beach house' style building which could be used as a gym, studio or summerhouse, and a separate storage room/office which would be ideal for homeworking. The gardens to the rear are walled and have a private feel, with tall trees around the boundary and a variety of shrubs making the space feel leafy and secluded. To the front of the house there are a number of shrub borders, a gravel driveway with space for a number of vehicles and a detached double car port.
