Overall Description

This is a beautifully presented Period cottage, dating back to the early 1800s, sitting in a quiet cul-de-sac location within a short walk of the town centre and all of its amenities. In the eight years that the current owners have lived here they have made a long list of improvements to the property including new central-heating, new electrics, new high-quality wooden flooring downstairs, a new kitchen and bathroom, two wood-burning stoves, a cobbled stone driveway, new front door and fitted bedroom wardrobes and even a new shed with electricity provided. The end result is a warm, comfortable and practical family home that retains its period character and charm. The downstairs accommodation has an excellent flow from the kitchen/dining room, to the cosy sitting room and on to the good-sized conservatory and separate play-room (with stable door back into the kitchen. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a modern bathroom and a large loft which is fully boarded with light and power. The property has a drive with space for two cars to the front where a tunnel leads to the nicely landscaped back garden.

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 Sccool 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.
