Overall Description

This is a mid terraced Victorian cottage that has been extended and much improved since it was bought by the current owners in 1967. The property has had a porch added to the front which means that you walk into an entrance hall before walking through to the main sitting room, which is larger than it was originally but still retains its period charm with a brick fireplace, wood-burning stove and solid maple floor. The dining room to the rear is open-plan into the kitchen which has hand-made kitchen units and overlooks the garden, which is west facing and has a useful brick outbuilding. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, with a good-sized bathroom with white bathroom suite. The loft has been part-converted with a velux window, boarded floors, electric light/power and loft ladder. If you are looking for a nicely presented character property a short walk from the station and primary school then look no further.

Hertford town centre is a ten minute level walk away and has a very good range of local facilities including shops, restaurants, supermarkets, theatre/cinema and regular markets. There are very good schools at all levels in the town and the highly regarded Millmead Primary School is a short walk from the house, so within the catchment area. The Millstream, an excellent pub/restaurant with pleasant beer garden is just down the road.
