3 Bedroom House - Semi-Detached in Shillington£425,000

About this property

An exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire an attractive semi-detached cottage that is situated on the Southern edge of this popular village on the Herts/Beds border. Formerly part of Pump Farm, this Grade II Listed character residence can be traced back to the mid 17th Century. The property retains many attractive period features and stands on a private well stocked plot with gardens running around three sides of the property. The extensive accommodation on the ground floor features an entrance lobby and hallway, cloakroom/utility room, impressive dual aspect sitting room with an exposed beamed ceiling and open fireplace, large dual aspect dining room with a vaulted ceiling and inglenook style fireplace, family/breakfast room and kitchen. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and bathroom. The property is set back from High Road and retains a large single garage and additional parking. The property requires renovation and refitting and also offers in our opinion enormous potential and therefore an early viewing is highly recommended.
