Property Ref: 60931


A truly beautiful home located in one of the most prestigious lanes in the historic Old Town, walking distance from the picturesque High Street and the station, offering a fast, frequent service to London in just 25 minutes. Orchard House is one of two brand new homes, perfectly suited to modern family life or downsizers.


THE LOCATION:

Rectory Lane is just a short walk from Stevenage Old Town, which boasts a wealth of charm and character, with its thriving historic High Street and picturesque Bowling Green, complemented by a choice of restaurants, cafes, boutiques and shops including Ask, Pizza Express, Prezzo, Costa Coffee and a Waitrose supermarket.

The lane itself joins St Nicholas Church, Rectory Farm and stunning open countryside at one end and easy access to North Road, just half a mile from junction 8 of the A1M at the other.

The original village prosperity came, in part, from its position on the Great
North Road during the 18th Century. Its Coaching Inns provided a restful break for
travellers heading to and from London and both Samuel Pepys and Charles Dickens
wrote about the hospitable staging post and pleasant bowling green which still form
part of the picturesque old town today.

To the south of the Old Town, the new town boasts excellent transport links, all the comprehensive amenities you would expect from a modern new town. For the commuter, Stevenage Old Town is very well connected via junction 8 of the A1(M), offering easy access to London and the M25 and also to the North. Local road links provide access to adjacent towns including Hertford, Welwyn Garden City, Hitchin and Letchworth. Stevenage main line Railway Station offers a fast, frequent service to London Kings Cross with a direct journey time of only 23 minutes! For those wishing to travel further afield, both Luton and Stansted airports are within easy reach.

The town is well maintained and very green, with avenues of trees and over 240 acres of woodland spread over 40 sites within its individual neighbourhoods. It has a unique network of cycle paths and there are many open spaces and parks, including Fairlands Valley, which provides a 120-acre park with sailing lakes, a new aqua playground, keep fit Trim Trail and climbing wall activity centre.

The town centre has a pedestrianised shopping centre, together with several large retail parks, the Gordon Craig theatre and Arts & Leisure Centre. The Leisure Park provides a David Lloyd Health Club, multi-screen Cineworld complex, Hollywood Bowl and a selection of nightclubs and eateries. Nearby, there are a couple of golf and sports clubs and Knebworth House and Park, famous for its rock concerts, hosts a variety of events including medieval jousting, car rallies, outdoor concerts, Country, Garden and Christmas Fairs.
