Overall Description

This is the first time in over 70 years that this semi-detached 1930's house has come to the market and it offers great potential for the new owners to add their own stamp and to create a modern family home in this very popular village. The property has three bedrooms and a wet room on the first floor and two receptions, kitchen and large conservatory downstairs. It has gas central heating and double-glazed windows as well as some of the original character features such as the fireplaces and would benefit from internal modernisation and may well have scope for further extension to the rear of into the loft as other home owners have done locally. Outside there is a private driveway with plenty of room for three cars and room to create more in place of the lawn if so desired. The back garden is large but low maintenance with a central lawn, patio and large gravel area with fruit trees and vegetable patch.

Location

The property sits in the centre of the pretty and very sought after village of St Ippolyts just a short walk from the village shop. The village is a thriving local community and also has a well regarded CofE Primary School, village church, village hall and large recreation ground with football team and bowling club. A short walk away in Gosmore are two popular public houses and a nursing home. The village is only a couple of miles from the attractive market town of Hitchin which has a very good range of local shops including a Sainsburys supermarket, Waitrose, Tesco Express and Morrisons. There are plenty of other amenities including two theatres, a range of sports clubs (rugby, tennis, football, etc.), three gyms, a swimming pool, library, a good selection of pubs, clubs and restaurants, three markets (normal, farmer's and antiques), and regular activities in the market square such as car boot sales and concerts. Hitchin railway station with regular trains to London Kings Cross (from around 30 minutes) and is under a ten minute drive from the A1 making it popular with commuters.
