Feature Friday - High Street, Offley

If you are after the ideal and charming village cottage lifestyle then this wonderful home offers a delightful blend of period character and up-to-date design and dates around 1900.


The extension to the rear blends perfectly with the original building and provides a family or dining room, open-plan to the superb modern kitchen/breakfast room set at the heart of this exceptional home. There are two good bedrooms on the first floor, together with a beautifully fitted bathroom with bath, washbasin, WC and wet-room style shower. There is a third good bedroom on the top floor.


The fireplace in the sitting room is fitted with a wood-burning stove and central heating is provided by the LPG gas fired boiler. The family room and bathroom also have electric underfloor heating and the house benefits from uPVC double-glazed windows.


The cottage is set some 30' (9.33m) back from the street behind a picket fence. The front garden is laid to lawn with herbaceous beds and borders and ornamental shrubs and conifers. A paved path leads to the front door. The pleasant south-west facing rear garden measures 44' by 21' (13.5m x 6.5m) and is laid to lawn with a paved and walled patio, herbaceous beds and borders and ornamental shrubs and trees.


Great Offley is a picturesque village, pleasantly set on the edge of the Chilterns and takes its name from Offa, the 8th Century king of Mercia. The village is centred around the historic parish church and is served by a shop/post office, primary school and two pubs. The village is conveniently located just off the A505 mid-way between the A1(M) and the M1, with the A6 also nearby. It is just 3 miles from the centre of the market town of Hitchin, 5 miles from Luton and 8.5 miles from Stevenage, all of which provide a wide range of facilities including mainline railway station.
