ANOTHER PROPERTY SOLD BY PUTTERILLS!

Fox Cottage is a Grade II Listed country home occupying a commanding rural position with substantial grounds extending to approximately five acres combining both formal gardens and paddocks with additional land which could hold development opportunities for both residential or commercial use (subject to relevant consent). The original cottage is believed to date back to the 14th Century with a substantial later extension in 1972, annexing the cottage to create two homes of great scope and potential ideal for multi-generational living. Fox Cottage lends itself to future improvement and extension subject to planning and listed building consent being obtained and could be readily reinstated to one family dwelling if preferred. The cottage would further suit prospective buyers with equestrian interests offering excellent grazing opportunities for horses with a number of outbuildings suitable for conversion to stables. In our opinion the extensive grounds would also be suitable for micro-farming, horticultural and small holding interests.

The accommodation currently combines five bedrooms, three reception rooms, conservatory, two bathrooms, shower room and two kitchens, in all approximately 2,400 sq.ft.

The property enjoys a secluded position set back from Long lane on the outskirts of Aston End within this desirable semi-rural hamlet location whilst being only three miles from Stevenage town centre and all the local amenities the town has to offer including a fast train link direct to London Kings Cross with a journey time of approximately 23 minutes. Viewing highly recommended.
