Feature Friday - Ash Tree Cottage, Ickleford

This handsome period house is believed to date from the 16th Century and boasts a fine heavy oak frame with a wealth of impressive exposed timbers internally and deserves its place as our featured home this week.


There is substantial central brick chimney with an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. More recent extensions house the modern kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, bathroom and wet room with shower.


This former farmhouse enjoys a delightful outlook over Christmas Common. The house is set some 120' (37m) back from the road behind a picket fence and in a plot of about a quarter of an acre. The gardens surround the house and are laid to extensive lawns with paved patio, herbaceous borders and ornamental shrubs, conifers and trees, including the magnificent mature ash tree after which the property is named.


The house enjoys a particularly pleasant setting at the northern end of this attractive north Hertfordshire village overlooking Christmas Common, which in turn merges into Lower Green and thence to Whitsun Common and Ickleford Common. This extensive area provides outstanding footpaths, bridleways and cycle-ways.


The Ickleford Equestrian Centre is only around 300 metres away and the parish church, primary school, village shop and a choice of pubs are all within half a mile. The village is conveniently located just 2 miles north of the popular market town of Hitchin and Letchworth Garden City, with both towns providing a wide range of amenities and mainline railway stations on the line from Cambridge into London King's Cross. The A1(M) is only 5 miles away and the A505, A507, A6 and M1 are within easy reach.
