Overall Description

This substantial Victorian end-of-terraced home is larger than it might appear from outside as it is laid out over three floors, the top two having three bedrooms (two are doubles) with an en-suite to the master and a separate family bathroom. Downstairs there is a sitting room with bay window and period fireplace (currently with coal-effect gas fire), dining room with sash window and also with period fireplace, and galley kitchen. The cottage is unusual as it has a very handy private driveway with space for three cars if needed and this leads up to a surprisingly private raised terrace garden, an ideal place to entertain guests on a pleasant evening. The house has plenty of Victorian character but is in good decorative order and has gas central-heating throughout. Viewing is highly recommended.

Location

This lovely period home sits in the highly desirable area of Lower Bengeo, just a five minute's walk from Hertford North Station (with its regular services to Finsbury Park and Moorgate) and only a short walk of around ten minutes to the town centre. Hertford East, with regular services to Liverpool Street, is the other side of town and Hertford is also conveniently located for the A10, A414 and A1. Hertford has a very good range of local facilities such as shops, pubs, restaurants, and supermarkets, yet is also an attractive and very pleasant place to live, which (along with its excellent transport links) is why it is so popular with young professional couples and commuters moving out of London. The town is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside and has a wide range of sporting and leisure pursuits close to hand including Hartham Common with its riverside walks and cycle path, activity centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
