Overall Description

This is a most attractive period cottage in a pleasant central position in the pretty Hertfordshire village of Tewin. The property originally had three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs but the current owners have re-configured the layout to create a larger master bedroom with separate dressing room and en-suite shower, leaving a second bedroom and bathroom for guests - but the original layout could be easily reinstated if so desired. Downstairs there is a good-sized sunny sitting room with French doors out to the garden in the single storey rear extension, a snug with open fireplace, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room as well as entrance hall with a downstairs cloakroom. The back garden is a lovely feature of the property as it is well stocked, attractively landscaped, south facing and private. To the rear of the gardens is a timber framed double garage with off-street parking in front and access provided down the lane to the side.

Location

The property sits in the centre of the highly sought-after village of Tewin, just up from the village green and a stone's throw from the excellent village shop. The village is a thriving local community which includes a church, village hall, Pre-School, Tewin Cowper C of E Primary, two pubs, a cricket pitch, tennis club and bowls club (for more information of local activities go to www.tewinvillage.co.uk). The location is beautifully rural and yet is also very well positioned for local rail and road links being around a five minute drive from Welwyn North, Welwyn Garden City and Hertford North stations with their regular services to Kings Cross (Welwyn line) and Moorgate (Hertford line). The A1, A414 and A10 are also between five and ten minutes drive away, so the house is ideal for people who want to live a rural lifestyle but still be close to "civilisation". The property sits between the historic county town of Hertford and Welwyn Garden City with it's excellent shopping including the Howard Centre, John Lewis and Debenhams department stores, Waitrose and Sainsburys. There are excellent schools at all levels in the area, including the Tewin Cowper C of E Primary school in the village and Sherrardswood School in Digswell, so the location is perfect for growing families. The property is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside including the picturesque Mimram River so it is ideal for nature lovers and keen walkers and cyclists.
