Overall Description

This is a tunnel-detached end-of-terraced Victorian cottage located in the popular Lower Bengeo of Hertford, just a short walk from the station and an easy walk into town. The property has plenty of period character with exposed timber floorboards on both floors and recently installed wood burning stoves in the sitting and dining rooms, the latter room also having a feature exposed brick chimney.. The kitchen has been extended to bring in extra light and to create space for a small office area by the large picture window overlooking the garden. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, the master to the rear having pleasant views as well as an en-suite bathroom. The owners have full planning consent and a party wall agreement in place to convert the loft space to create a third bedroom as well as a passageway to the bathroom. Outside there is a low-maintenance south-facing back garden with patio and decking for entertaining and a garden shed.
