Believed to date back to around 1890 this Victorian cottage offers well planned and spacious accommodation. There are some charming character features including a wood burning stove and timber floors. The sitting room is a generous size and leads to the kitchen dining room. The dining area has ample room for a large table and the cottage style kitchen includes a Rangemaster cooker and butler sink. The large conservatory overlooks the patio and first part of the garden. To the first floor there is a four piece bathroom suite including a roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. There are two good size double rooms and a respectable single.
The outside of the cottage is amazing! There is a large patio area, ideal for soaking up the sunshine and a formal garden leading to the vegetable plot. There are a number of outbuildings and sheds as well as large summer house. The garden has a westerly aspect so benefits from the best of the afternoon and evening sunshine, and measures 160' x 31'. There are fields to the rear providing some delightful walks. The owners have advised us that they park on the grass verge to the front of the property, this is an arrangement with the parish council. Please be advised that the curb is only partially dropped.
The cottage is situated in the attractive village of Ickleford, just to the north of the highly regarded market town of Hitchin. The village is well served with local shop, pubs, primary school and parish church. Hitchin is often featured as one of the best places to live in the UK and offers a wide selection of excellent shops, schools, pubs, restaurants, leisure facilities and places of worship.
