An architect designed four bedroom detached house with double garage and parking on a plot of just under 0.25 acres in the village of Preston, near Hitchin.
A detached house built in 1999 with handmade bricks and tiles designed to be in keeping with the conservation area of the village. The property backs onto the grounds of the village cricket club and has direct access to the grounds with a wooden lockable gate from the back of the garden. The accommodation of 2,066 sq. ft. includes an entrance hall, cloakroom, a sitting room with a "Clearview 650" log burner, a dining room, kitchen with gas fired Aga and separate utility room. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, an en suite bathroom to the master bedroom and a family bathroom. There is block paved parking for up to six cars. The double garage has stairs leading up to a boarded storage room above which with local authority approval could be converted to a home office or studio.
The fully fitted kitchen has a double butler sink and a recessed fireplace with an inset gas-fired Aga and wooden beam over. There are granite work surfaces and a stable door to the garden. The sitting room has a walk-in bay window with double doors to the garden and both this room and the dining room have solid Welsh Oak floors. The bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and cupboards and the en suite bathroom has a clawfoot bath and separate shower.
The front has mature hedging to both sides with a block paved driveway and a lawn with mature shrubs and flower borders. The rear garden also has an array of mature trees and shrubs and is laid to lawn with a paved seating area.
