4 Bedroom House - Detached in Hitchin£850,000

About this property

FOR SALE BY INFORMAL TENDER - DEADLINE: 12 NOON, MONDAY 16TH APRIL 2018. An exceptional opportunity to acquire a grand, two storey, double fronted Edwardian detached residence set well back from London Road on the sought after southern edge of Hitchin. Many authentic period features remain and the property exudes the style and elegance of the Edwardian era. Occupying a wide plot extending to 0.12 hectare (0.3 acre) the property requires significant sympathetic restoration and refitting to return this magnificent home to its former glory. In our opinion it also has enormous scope to extend and further develop subject to the usual consents. It is impossible within the scope of these details to fully furnish prospective purchasers with the complete information on this unique property however as the vendors sole agents we would be delighted to discuss matters arising from them with any genuinely interested parties. Viewing essential and strictly by appointment.
