Overall Description

This is an attractive Victorian semi-detached cottage in a good central position in this popular village community. The property has been tastefully modernised by its current owners who have retained the original character and charm while creating a modern and practical family home. The large open-plan sitting/dining room with attractive brick open fire and polished wooden floor boards is a major feature of the property and leads to a modern kitchen and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs the master bedroom has a large walk-in dressing room, modern en-suite and balcony from which to enjoy the view. There are two more double bedrooms, one in the loft, and a stylish brand new family bathroom. The cottage has a driveway with room for three cars and a large garage with space for a fourth. The back garden is attractively laid out and low maintenance. If you are looking for a family home in a proper village community that is still close to road and rail links and other amenities then this property is well worth a look.

Location

The property sits in the attractive village of Walkern which sits amongst open Hertfordshire countryside just a couple of miles East of Stevenage with plenty of footpaths and bridleways close by for keen walkers and cyclists. Walkern is a thriving community with excellent local amenities such as a well regarded primary school, village shop and Post Office, petrol station with garage, two pub/restaurants, sports and community hall, and even a DIY shop, art gallery and antiques shop. Just a five minute drive away is the town of Stevenage with its excellent shops, schools and other facilities, the Old Town being well known for its good selection of pubs and restaurants. Stevenage also has regular fast trains to London Kings Cross, and also sits next to the A1, making it perfect for busy commuters who want to escape the rat race.
