    About this property

    • This pretty period cottage is located on the edge of Bishop's Stortford town close to Thorley and within easy reach of Bishop's Stortford train station for links to London and Cambridge.

      Extended by the current owner, Rainbow Cottage now offers a fantastic open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area with vaulted ceiling and views of the garden. You enter from the side door into the kitchen which features solid wood flooring, butler sink and Smeg cooker. The kitchen flows into the dining area, perfect for entertaining. From here, there is a double bedroom located on the ground floor with vaulted ceiling, skylight and double patio doors leading to the private patio area.

      Pass through the double oak doors and the family bathroom is cleverly hidden behind a purpose built bookcase wall. Steps lead down into the oldest part of the cottage with access to the sitting room which features exposed timber beams, an open fireplace and spiral staircase leading to a further bedroom. Upstairs the double bedroom enjoys en suite facilities, vaulted ceiling and built-in wardrobes.

      Outside the garden is accessed via steps leading up to an impressive garden measuring 0.25 acres. Beyond the garden are views of the open countryside which sits to the rear of the property. There is driveway parking for several vehicles to the front of the property and further potential to extend subject to planning permission.

      Rainbow Cottage would make a perfect rental investment and is offered chain free.
