The cottage is believed to originally date back to around 1820 with the extension added in 2011. The contrasting extension works superbly well and gives the perfect blend of character and ultra modern. It also allows significantly more natural light to flood into the property making a huge difference. The substantial accommodation includes three formal reception rooms, a stunning kitchen/dining room with bi folding doors leading onto the garden, four cellar rooms giving superb storage and the possibility of creating further living space if required (subject to planning permission being obtainable). To the first floor there are five good size bedrooms, bedroom one having an en-suite bathroom plus a family bathroom. Externally the property offers a driveway providing off road parking leading to a garage. There is a good size outbuilding that offers the potential for conversion, which would make an ideal home office/study. There is also a delightful wrap around garden giving distinct areas and ensuring areas of sun at all times. Properties of this character and quality are rarely offered to the market place and an early appointment to view is strongly recommended.
Lilley is a popular village, set amidst countryside, yet conveniently placed between the centre of Hitchin and Luton, both of which provide shopping and leisure facilities.
For the commuter, both towns offer mainline railway stations and the area is well placed for road access to both the M1 and A1(M), Junction 8 at Stevenage North; road links to the M25 and, of course, Luton Airport. Lilley is within easy reach of the primary school located in Great Offley and the highly regarded secondary schools in Hitchin.
