Overall Description

This charming Victorian terraced period property sits in a quiet location towards the edge of the popular market town of Buntingford yet just a short walk from all of its amenities as well as beautiful open countryside. The cottage is very nicely presented throughout and has a light, open and spacious feel while retaining its Victorian character. The owners have made a number of improvements to the property including the addition of a front porch, the wood-burning stove in the sitting room fireplace as well as the garden landscaping and the garden studio which is used as a home office. There is a large open-plan sitting/dining room which is sub-divided by the original timbers, giving it a lovely period feel. The kitchen is well stocked with a good range of kitchen units as well as a delightful view into the garden, with a boot room/utility next door. Upstairs one can find both the bedrooms and a modern bathroom; the master bedroom having an original fireplace with cast-iron grate, while the smaller second overlooks the back garden. The owners have got planning consent for a larger kitchen extension to the rear and a loft conversion for a third bedroom and we have the plans should you wish to see them. The garden is a real feature of this delightful property as it is around 165 feet in length, with separate seating areas, raised beds for flowers and vegetables, and a gate out to the rear onto a footpath that heads out of the village across open countryside. If you want a modern, practical home with plenty of character then viewing is highly recommended.

Location

The property is located in Buntingford, a small bustling market town (the smallest in Hertfordshire) situated on the old A10 London to Cambridge Road, which was originally the Roman Ermine Road. This picturesque town has a good range of local amenities, all within walking distance, including a supermarket, shops, pubs, restaurants, etc. It also has good local schools including the Freman College and Millfield First School as well as a range of local sports clubs including a football club and swimming pool, so is a great place for young families wanting a more rural lifestyle. The town is well positioned for commuting south to London or north to Cambridge via the A10 and there are rail links to London from either Royston, Stevenage or Ware. The town is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside so ideal for keen walkers or cyclists.
