Overall Description

This is a very well presented and spacious barn conversion, which was converted to a very high standard around 8 years ago, to which the current owners have added several significant improvements. The property has a great deal of period charm and character with exposed oak timbers throughout and high vaulted ceilings upstairs and in the lovely large kitchen/dining room, the true heart of the house, yet is also a very modern and practical family home. There are five bedrooms, three being very good doubles, with a further double and single. There is also a family bathroom and two en-suites, with the master bedroom suite being sited downstairs. The property has a large entrance hall with impressive oak staircase, downstairs cloakroom, cosy sitting room with feature brick chimney and wood burning stove (added by the owners) as well as the spacious kitchen/dining room with AGA and separate utility. Outside there are attractively landscaped Italianate gardens with a gravel driveway and double garage.

Location

This delightful family home sits in the small village of Chipping which sits on the A10 between Buntingford and Royston. The village has a public house and Buntingford and Royston have good local shops, pubs, restaurants and other amenities. Royston also has a railway with regular trains to London and Cambridge. There are good schools at all levels in the local area including the Layston and Millfield Junior Schools, Edwinstree Middle School and St Edmunds College. The property is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside criss-crossed with lanes and footpaths, so is ideal for families keen on walking and cycling.
