4 Bedroom House - Detached in Hitchin£900,000

About this property

An exceptional opportunity to acquire a detached family style home that is situated within an established and popular cul-de-sac location on the South side of Town. Our clients parents purchased the property from new in 1977 and it is now available to the market for the first time in nearly 43 years. This rarely available home stands on an impressive and private plot of 0.19 acres and is well placed for many amenities and excellent communication links plus retains ample off-street parking and a detached double width garage with an electric entrance door. The well presented accommodation features an entrance hall. A cloakroom. A large impressive dual aspect sitting room with an open fireplace and attractive views over the gardens. A separate formal dining room plus a kitchen and utility room. Upstairs there are four good sized bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room. Whilst requiring some refitting and updating, the property in our opinion also offers enormous potential to extend (subject to obtaining the relevant consents). Therefore an early viewing of this Chain Free home is highly recommended.
