Stunning Period Cottage, Stanstead Abbotts

Guide price

Bedrooms: 1
A wonderful opportunity to acquire a simply lovely example of a Grade ll listed period cottage which is situated in the highly sought after commuter village of Stanstead Abbotts.

Quietly tucked away at the end of a small pedestrian mews, this characterful period home is impeccably presented throughout and is within easy and comfortable distance of all the village amenities, including the busy High Street with a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants together with the main-line station serving London Liverpool Street.

The accommodation has been thoughtfully upgraded by the current owners to include: a luxury re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room with space for a table and chairs, an attractive log burner with the traditionally exposed brickwork in the sitting room and a very private, larger than average courtyard style garden, that has been landscaped for ease of maintenance.

In brief, the layout offers: Front door into to a small lobby which leads to the sitting room to one side and a beautifully re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room to the other. A turning staircase with exposed timber beams takes you up to the first floor, where there is a good size double bedroom and modern bathroom. The useful attached outbuilding is used as the utility room and has plumbing for a washing machine and added storage.

This is a truly delightful, ready-made home for an incoming purchaser to just move in and make their own.
