This week’s Property Spotlight is on two homes in rural settings. If only we had a spare million...
Four-bed house in Hexton, near Hitchin
Fancy living in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? This four-bedroom rural property is in such a spot in the sought-after Hertfordshire village of Hexton, in the Chilterns.
The impressive kitchen/breakfast room has an oversized central island, inset with a Franke stainless steel sink, and numerous integrated appliances including a Rangemaster range cooker.
Doors lead through into a light and airy sitting room where a central Rocal Giselle 80 Woodburner on a tiled hearth steals the show. Upstairs, the bathrooms are also super stylish with rainfall showers, and the master bedroom enjoys uninterrupted views over the village cricket ground.
Outside, a pair of five bar timber gates open to the gravel driveway which has an oak framed carport. A picket fence encloses the front garden while there’s an enclosed landscaped garden to the rear.
Just a short drive away is the historic market town of Hitchin which boasts an outstanding reputation for schools and commuter links - trains will whisk you to King’s Cross in under 30 minutes.
