Feature Friday - The Paddock, Hinxworth

This week’s Feature Friday home is a remarkably spacious and stylish modern family home which dates from 1997 and enjoys a pleasant village setting


The property boasts many attractive features including an impressive fireplace with fitted wood-burning stove in the sitting room, a double-glazed semi-octagonal garden room extending the dining room and a strikingly large kitchen/breakfast room with granite worktops.


The first floor is no less impressive with a spacious landing and five genuinely double bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms while the others are served by a well-appointed family bathroom with both bath and shower.


The house stands in a fine garden plot extending to about half an acre. It is screened from the road by hedges and laid to extensive lawns with paved patios, shrub border, fruit trees and numerous ornamental trees including maples, silver birch, hawthorn, rowan and walnut. Adjoining the garden to its left-hand or western boundary is a well-fenced paddock extending to about 1.8 acres (0.73 ha).


The house is pleasantly set at the western end of the attractive north Hertfordshire village of Hinxworth, close to the borders of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. The nearest railway station is 4.9 miles away in Baldock, with alternatives at Biggleswade (5.3 miles), Arlesey (6.4 miles) and Letchworth Garden City (7.1 miles). The fastest services to London Kings Cross are 39 minutes, 40 minutes, 30 minutes and 28 minutes respectively. The A1 is just 1.3 miles away by car. Hinxworth is centred around the 14th Century parish church and the highly rated Three Horseshoes pub. A wide range of shops, schools and leisure facilities are available, not only in the nearby towns mentioned above, but also in Hitchin (10.7 miles), Bedford (17 miles) and Cambridge (21 miles).
