Overall Description

This is an attractive Victorian end-of-terraced house in a good central location in the popular commuter town of Hertford. The house has been extended twice, once to the rear to create a lovely large kitchen/dining room (with new limestone floor and under-floor heating) and again into the loft to create a loft room/office. The property has plenty of period character with sash windows and an open fireplace in the sitting room - which has been finished off with attractive engineered oak flooring. On the middle floor there is a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, guest double bedroom and separate bathroom with Victorian style roll-top bath. The back garden is surprisingly large with patio next to the kitchen/dining room, useful outside cloakroom/utility, and steps up to the lawn. At the top of the garden is a quirky Victorian brick summerhouse with its own fireplace and chimney as well as a rear gate for access. If you want Victorian character with a stylish, contemporary finish and also want to be close to the centre of town and railway stations then this delightful property is well worth a visit.

Location

This property sits in a very central location in West Street, one of the most historic roads in Hertford and originally a Roman Road, close to the centre of town. It lies just a few minutes walk from the Castle gardens by the river Lea and Parliament Square, so is close to a very good range of local facilities such as shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Hertford is a picturesque and very pleasant place to live, known for its four rivers, and a popular location for young families. It is also very convenient for commuters as the property is around 10 minutes walk from both Hertford North and Hertford East stations and the A414 provides easy access to the A10 and A1. There are very good schools in the local area and the property sits within the highly sought after SG13 catchment area, so perfect for families wishing to send their children to the better local schools. The town is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside and has a wide range of sporting and leisure pursuits close to hand, including Hartham Common with its riverside walks, activity centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
