Thought to date back to the 1640s, Church Street boasts preserved, exposed beams throughout with ornate, period fireplaces in the living room and both bedrooms upstairs. Unlike some period properties the original, steep stairs have been replaced with a more modern wrap-around staircase for convenience.
This home has gated off-street parking, locked outdoor storage and an absolutely charming, low maintenance garden with heaps of potential for colourful flowers and plants around the original stonework.
Overlooking the garden is a rustic, bright eat-in kitchen with integrated appliances. The utility room sits next door with a stable door fashioned by the current owner that leads to the garden.
This living room is cosy, as you would expect in a period cottage, with the focus feature being the metalwork fireplace. Between the living room and the kitchen is the entrance hall leading on to an open space with the potential for an open plan office, study, playroom or even a downstairs bathroom as the plumbing already exists for one.
The upstairs bedrooms each feature period, metalwork fireplaces and both are bright and roomy. The second bedroom even features a wall-to-wall wardrobe lovingly hand-built by the current owner. Nestled between the bedrooms is the ample-sized bathroom, with exposed beams and a full-sized bathtub with shower.

About the Village of Buntingford
Located halfway between Royston and Ware on the A10, Hertfordshires smallest town dates all the way back to the 14th Century and it has all of the charm and history to prove it. In fact, Elizabeth I stayed in the Bell Inn on a sojourn to The North. Buntingford High Street itself is steeped in history having been part of the Roman Ermine Road. Georgian and medieval buildings line the road boasting plenty of independent, local businesses worth shouting about, not to mention weekly traditional markets, as well as, a Christmas Market and other fetes throughout the year.
Nearby country walks abound. Go east over Hayley Ditch and catch the end of the renowned Hertfordshire Way. Or head west to wander by one of Hertfordshires best wedding venues, the Milling Barn. Ramblers and casual walkers will delight in this Hertfordshire countryside.
Hertfordshires smallest town may soon have a big new addition. Currently there is a proposed light-rail system that will connect Buntingford with Baldock and Royston and potentially even Stevenage which would open travel to London and beyond. Watch this space, and welcome home.
Welcome to your new home. This delightful two bedroom character property built around the 1640s is equal parts cottage charm and modern accommodation and is nestled just off of the historic Buntingford High Street
