This gorgeous cottage offers a wonderful blend of character & convenience and is situated close to local village amenities and countryside walks.
Here we find exposed timbers on both floors, roaring log burner in the middle reception along with a magnificent brick fireplace in the front reception and a cute enclosed timber staircase.
There's all mod cons as well though with a recent high-gloss white kitchen re-fit, recent boiler for the central heating, all new guttering and fascias and multiple other works, all designed to make the house durable and enjoyable.
A great surprise is the private driveway onto the rear of the property which can be gated and is accessed from Lanthony Court. This home also has the legal right to utilise 1 visitor space in Lanthony Court without charge.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms with exposed timbers, Master with room for wardrobe and drawers and second with a built-in wardrobe. Good news, the bathroom is upstairs too and surprisingly roomy for a cottage - it has the advantage of a skylight to let the light flood in.
Through the back door from the kitchen is the rear garden which the present owner has stocked well with a range of flowering plants & shrubs providing multi-season colour. The garden leads directly onto the driveway making it easy to bring the shopping in from the car. At the front there's weed-protected slate ground cover surrounded by an established and neatly trimmed box hedge which separates the front door from the pavement.
The home is situated just 5 or 6 minutes walk from riverside walks leading further on to the Old Moat Nature Reserve and Glebe Meadows, and around 1.5 miles to Arlesey Mainline Train Station.
Arlesey is a large village just North of the Beds/Herts border, surrounded by countryside yet within easy reach of the A507 and A1(M). The village offers a range of local shopping, pubs and food outlets and significantly a Mainline Railway station with direct travel to London St. Pancras in under 40 minutes. Dating back as long as the 1086 Domesday Book, there is a broad range of home styles and building eras - something for everyone! Gothic Mede Academy provides Primary education in the middle of the village, with numerous Secondary options including Etonbury Academy on the Arlesey/Stotfold border. Further facilities and shopping are available within a few miles in the larger towns of Letchworth Garden City and Hitchin to the South.
