Full property description
A detached Grade II listed character cottage has been beautifully renovated and extended by the current owners. Situated on Motts Green, an English National Trust location on the edge of the village of Little Hallingbury with its popular primary school and local public houses. The market town of Bishop’s Stortford is just short drive and offers sought after primary and senior schools, multiple shopping facilities, restaurants, cafes, public houses, mainline train station serving London Liverpool Street and Cambridge and of course, M11 leading to M25 access points.
As previously mentioned, the property has been beautifully presented and extended by the current owners but still retains lots of its wonderful original character features including original and Inglenook fireplaces and exposed wooden beams. The property also benefits from having a good size living room, contemporary kitchen, separate utility room, dining room/playroom, downstairs w.c., four bedrooms with an en-suite shower room and dressing area to the main bedroom, good size second bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, two further bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom. Outside the property benefits from having a large sunken patio area and enclosed lawned garden, ideal for small children and pets. Only by internal viewing will this beautiful character home be truly appreciated.
