Charm in abundance throughout this Victorian cottage which is set back from Church Lane, right opposite St Peter's Church and just a few minutes walk to Arlesey station. A rural feel yet close to amenities.
The cottage is larger than it looks as it includes all the area over the arch, affording a much larger Master Bedroom plus a whole extra first floor room (ideal as a study/workspace) in addition to Bedrooms 1 & 2. The Master boasts two large built-in wardrobe sections whilst Bedroom 2 has its own double wardrobe too. The third room/study could be used as a temporary bedroom as needed.
Downstairs radiates charm. From the Living Room with working fireplace and leafy outlook, through the recently bespoke-fitted, period style kitchen with breakfast bar, the rear hallway and homely bathroom, it's all delightful.
The outdoor space is a great surprise too! The plot is accessed via a short wooded path, with permit parking at the top (£10 annually for first car), leading to a leafy, shaded front garden with many plants and a pond. To the rear is a generous courtyard ideal for entertaining but there's also a separate, long lawned garden offset to the left hand side with a vegetable patch and two sheds - see the photos.
The sellers have undertaken an extensive program of renovation including many bespoke elements:
- Hand-built kitchen cabinetry/pantry/storage/breakfast bar with solid oak counters
- Built-in wardrobes to Bedrooms 1 and 2.
- Restored and operational character fireplace in the Living Room (simply deflate 'chimney balloon' and place a fire basket or grate - also suitable for log burner installation)
- Re-decorated throughout

Arlesey is a large, growing 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.
