Overall Description

This picturesque Victorian semi-detached cottage was built in 1864 and was extended by its current owner so that upstairs now has two bedrooms and a large study. Downstairs there is a pleasant open-plan sitting dining room with stable door to the front and open fireplace, and this room leads into the kitchen and then on to the downstairs bathroom with separate bath and shower, tiled as in a wet room. To the rear is an attractively laid out enclosed garden with ornamental pond, separate brick and block paved patios and mature beds. The cottage has just been completely redecorated throughout on the outside and inside so has a pleasant light and modern feel while retaining its period character and charm. The property has gas central heating, the boiler still being under warranty, as well as LED lights throughout, smart meters and monitor, cable TV and ample telephone points. If you are looking for a property with character that's got an additional room for use as a home office/study in a central location then viewing is highly recommended. We have an Open Day from 11.15am to 12.15pm on Saturday the 29th of September so please call to book an appointment.

Location

The property is located in Dimsdale Street, a quiet crescent running off and back onto Cowbridge (B158) in the centre of the county town of Hertford. It is one-way with on-street parking and a car park. It is a tucked-away yet very central position, close to the centre of the popular market town of Hertford, so just a short level walk away from its many eateries, pubs, shops (including a Sainsbury's supermarket) and other local amenities include the Castle Theatre/Cinema. It is a great location for commuters being equidistant from both Hertford North and Hertford East railway stations and close to the bus station and A414 with easy access to the A1, A10, A414, A602, M11 & M25, London Stansted, Gatwick, Heathrow, City and Luton Airports. Hertford County Hospital and the dentists and doctors surgeries are close-by. Hertford is a pleasant place to live, surrounded by beautiful countryside and with the historic Hertford Castle and grounds and Hartham Park (which offers miles of walks, a gym, swimming pool, skate park and play areas) a short walk away. The property backs onto the prestigious Brewhouse Lane private development and is close to the well-regarded Millmead Primary School.
