The current owners have resided in this property for over 13 years and have thoroughly enjoyed a peaceful and picturesque setting. The property has been improved over recent years and offers beautifully presented accommodation throughout. The property offers some charming character features including latch doors, fireplaces and exposed beams and benefits from not being a listed property. These are perfectly blended with more modern amenities including a fitted kitchen and a stunning refitted bathroom. The light and airy accommodation includes four reception rooms plus kitchen, cloakroom, study and conservatory. To the first floor are four double bedrooms a family bathroom and en-suite. The cottage offers ample parking with a large driveway leading to a detached double garage. The rear garden offers a good degree of privacy and benefits from the best of the afternoon and evening sunshine, being south-westerly facing. The position is idyllic being tucked away on the edge of this sought after village with views over open countryside to the front.
At the northeast edge of the Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, stands Shillington, a traditional English village that dates back more than 1000 years. Set high above the verdant countryside that rolls away in all directions the village and its 750 year old church can be seen for miles around. This peaceful, idyllic village has a true sense of community and an active social scene. Two well regarded pubs serve good food and drink and two village shops serve almost every need. Almost 30 miles of footpath intersect and surround the village and, listening to the variety of birdsong, it's hard to believe you are just 20 minutes from international travel via Luton Airport or the M1 motorway. The historic market town of Hitchin is just four miles away and, from there, it's just a 30 minute train journey to London Kings Cross.
