Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
CHAIN FREE: A delightful two/three bedroom semi-detached flint cottage with ample character and charm, situated on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Westmill, near Buntingford.

The accommodation was extended some years ago and offers a deceptively large ground floor layout. An enclosed entrance porch leads to a living room with a feature brick fireplace, housing a wood burner, which is open plan to a spacious dining area with an attractive and decorative cast iron grate. The breakfast room is adjacent and leads out to the rear garden. Next door is the light and bright farmhouse style kitchen opening to a large utility/boot room at far rear of the cottage. Completing the ground floor is a third bedroom with a built-in bed, however this could be used as a study or playroom etc. depending on a buyer s needs.

The first floor houses two generous double bedrooms and a large bathroom with a four piece suite.

The good size rear garden is private and mature. At the far end of the garden there is a large outbuilding that was formally used as an annexe. At present there are no services to this building other than light and power (water would need to be re-connected) however with a little work this could easily be utilised as an annexe again or perhaps a home office/ games/garden room.

The highly sought after picture-postcard village of Westmill could almost transport you to a bygone era, with the largely unaltered village green and collection of period cottages. The village enjoys its own popular tea rooms, church and a public house, 'The Sword Inn Hand', that is renowned for its welcome and delicious food.

Just a couple of miles north is the bustling market town of Buntingford, with Ware, a larger town approximately 7-8 miles south. This is where many villagers choose to commute from, with the main-line station serving London Liverpool Street.

Larger than average garden that is very private and well screened by way of high fencing and natural planting.

A pathway leads the the large outbuilding/annexe and there is gated access to the far rear.

4.83m x 4.73m overall (15'10 x 15'6 overall)

Formerly used as a separate annexe, this building now forms an ancillary building to the main dwelling. Electricity is still connected, however water would need to be reinstated. It would be a fairly easy project to make into an annexe again, however if not required it would make a super home office/gym or garden/games room.

Agents Note re: Parking

The current owner has a 'Gentleman's agreement' with the local farmer to have a right of way to the track at the rear where two parking spaces can be found. This is an informal arrangement and not on the title deeds.

Services

Mains services connected: mains water incoming and electric. Heating is provided by oil fired boiler to radiators. Oil tank located in the rear garden.

As is quite common with rural homes, there is a cess pit (sealed underground tank) shared with the neighbouring property, located in the adjacent field. Costs are shared by both parties.
