- Credit: Archant
This delightful Grade II listed period home dates from the latter half of the 17th Century and, although it has been well extended and updated, retains much of its original character and charm.
It boasts a fine inglenook fireplace with a fitted wood-burning stove, a wealth of exposed oak timbers and the brick exterior is believed to date from the 19th Century.
There are three double bedrooms and a modern bathroom with both bath and shower on the first floor, with an additional shower room downstairs. The rest of the ground floor includes three reception rooms and a generous modern kitchen/breakfast room.
The leaded light windows have secondary double-glazing and the cottage enjoys pleasant views across open meadows to the front.
The front garden is divided into beds and borders by pathways and is well stocked with ornamental shrubs and conifers. To the right is a small lawn and to the left, the cobble paved driveway provides off-street parking and leads to the large detached garage.
You may also want to watch:
A gate between the house and garage leads to the charming sun-trap rear garden with sunken paved patio, shaped lawn, herbaceous beds and borders, ornamental pond, arbour and ornamental shrubs, trees and bamboos.
Langley is a charming hamlet in a pleasant rural setting, just four miles to the south of Hitchin.
