This individual, extended, detached period residence offers generous accommodation. One of its many unique features is the convenience of its location. Everything is within a short walk, be it going to school, commuting to work, visiting the town or taking exercise in the open countryside.
The ground floor living space spans four separate reception rooms offering a versatile living space for the modern family; whether you are wanting home working space, a play room or a teenagers’ den separate from the main lounge. The dining room has a open fire perfect for cold winter nights and festive entertaining. The sunken lounge, which was the “The Old Forge”, is a beautiful characterful room adorned with beams.
The bespoke, fitted kitchen neighbours a walk- in pantry offering a great space for anyone looking to cook up a storm in the kitchen. The ground floor also features a utility/boot room which is ideally located to enter straight in to the home on a wet/muddy day and pop wet/dirty clothes in to the washing machine after a wintery dog walk. The cellar is located off the entrance hall and is a great space for additional storage and is currently being used as workshop space.
On the first floor there are four well proportioned bedrooms along with a family bathroom. The bright dual aspect master bedroom benefits from built in wardrobes as well as an en-suite shower room. Outside the home to the front is a driveway providing ample parking for three cars. To the rear of the home is a generous fully enclosed landscaped garden that offers a private space for family barbecues and worshipping the summer sun. There is also an additional private courtyard area linked between the family room and lounge. Internal viewing is highly recommended to truly appreciate this spacious family home.
The Old Forge sits adjacent to Baldock train station which is on the Cambridge to London Kings Cross mainline with the fastest journey times being just 39 minutes to Kings Cross and 23 minutes to Cambridge. The town stands just off the A505 with Junction 9 on the A1(M) (southbound) being only 2.2 miles away and Junction 10 (northbound) 2.6 miles offering fantastic connections by road.
Baldock is an attractive market town in north Hertfordshire, founded by the Knights Templar in the 1140s. Today the town centre boasts many imposing period buildings and the broad High Street is a particularly notable feature. There is a family butcher baker and a Tesco store within walking distance. The town provides excellent shopping, schools, pubs and restaurants, with the adjoining towns of Letchworth Garden City and Hitchin helping to provide an even wider range of facilities.
