Property Ref: 61416
This small, private, exclusive development is located on Rectory Lane - the Town's most premier turning, close to the heart of the Old Town, with its thriving Historic High Street boasting a wealth of charm and character. 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 High Street today. Some of the original Inns remain popular public houses, now complemented by an excellent choice of restaurants, cafés, boutiques and shops, including Tesco Express and Waitrose. There is also a library, church and community centre. The local area provides well for families, with a good choice of well-regarded schools all within walking distance of Nycolles Wood - Letchmore Infants' and Nursery School (OFSTED "Outstanding") and its linked junior school, Almond Hill; the Barclay School with Technology College status and the Thomas Alleyne School, awarded Specialist Science College status. With a comprehensive range of amenities, the nearby new town is only a short walk through the Historic High Street. The pedestrianised shopping centre offers 250 retail stores. The local area benefits from a wide selection of pleasure pursuits, including a theatre, leisure complex with Cineworld and Hollywood Bowl, David Lloyd Health Club, Chesfield Downs Golf club in nearby Graveley, plus a wealth of open spaces including Fairlands Valley Lakes and Park. Stevenage is also very family-friendly with its superb cycle route network throughout the Town.
Stevenage mainline station is only a half a mile walk from Nycolles Wood, and provides a fast, frequent service into LONDON KINGS CROSS with a journey time of ONLY 23 MINUTES. Nycolles Wood is served by the nearby A1(M) motorway (junction 8, 1 mile), which in turn provides access to the M25 and wider motorway network. Local links provide access to adjacent towns including Letchworth, the market town of Hitchin, Welwyn Garden City and Hertford. Luton, Stansted and Heathrow airports are all easily accessible.
