Fitted appliances include, double oven, hob with extractor hood and plumbing for an automatic dishwasher. Other features include a fitted dresser unit and built in cabinets to the dining area and a walk-in pantry, with quarry tiled flooring, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for fridge/freezer.
The first floor landing is worthy of particular attention, being spacious and with window to rear, but, more importantly, providing access to the huge loft space offering conversion possibilities (client plans available for inspection) and a large walk-in wardrobe cupboard which could be converted into a shower room. Bedroom one, a generous double with dual aspect, has numerous character features and bedroom two, ideal for guests has an en suite cloakroom. Bedroom three is a large dual aspect double and the remaining two bedrooms, both accommodate double beds.

The Outside - The gardens, measuring some 156‘ by 59‘ (47.77m x 18.13m) overall, are particularly noteworthy having been professionally designed and planted with feature patios and pathways, a sunken Italian garden with pond, neat lawns and deep well-stocked shrub beds and borders. There are productive fruit trees, native deciduous ‘trained‘ specimens and dwarf topiary, all combining to provide ‘secret‘ garden areas and shaded seating. There is a children‘s play area and a useful potting shed.
Double gated access leads to hardstanding for three vehicles and the garage, which is detached, double size, with twin up and over doors and has pitched roof with eaves storage.

The Location - The thriving historic market town of Hitchin is noted for excellent mainline rail links to London and Cambridge and easy access to the road infrastructure via the A1(m). Top-performing schooling for all ages, including co-ed, single sex, independent and state, is a particular draw and Hitchin is surrounded by attractive countryside with extensive footpaths and bridleways.
