Overall Description

This is an attractive semi-detached Victorian cottage that has been extended and much improved over the years to create a lovely modern and spacious family home. The property has three bedrooms on the first floor, the third being accessed from the master bedroom making it an ideal nursery, and from bedroom two a step ladder leads to a very useful converted loft room that currently serves as a home office. Downstairs is the front porch which leads to the large open-plan reception space naturally divided into seating and dining areas by the open staircase. There is a modern kitchen, rear hallway leading to the garden, and newly modernised bathroom. The property still retains its Victorian character, including its original fireplaces, but has a pleasant modern feel throughout and has double-glazed windows and a new gas boiler for the central heating. The south-facing back garden is 90' long and surprisingly private, with a second area of garden at the bottom hidden away behind the shed and with a second access point via a rear gate. If you are looking for a home with the space to grow into over time then this nicely presented cottage could tick all the boxes.

Location

The property sits in the Hertfordshire town of Hoddesdon, close to the A10, and just a short walk from Rye House Station which has regular trains to London Liverpool Street (38 minutes), so making it ideal location for young professionals who need to commute. The cottage is also only five minute's from The River Lea and New River each of which is served by its own footpath so perfect for keen walkers, runners or cyclists. There is a good range of local shops within a short walk of the property and the town centre has supermarkets and other services as well a bustling high street with a wide selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. There are excellent schools at all levels in the area including the Rye Park Nursery School just around the corner. Hoddesdon sits in the Lea Valley so is close to lakes and gravel pits offering leisure activities including fishing and sailing. The town is close to some beautiful Hertfordshire countryside including Broxbourne Woods which is the county's only National Nature Reserve.
