A rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful detached house in the popular Hertfordshire village of Markyate, located at the quieter end of the Village and set back from the road in an elevated position overlooking the High Street. The cottage dates back to the 19th Century, offering a wealth of character with features including exposed beams, ornate brickwork and an open fireplace. The entrance hall provides access to a spacious lounge to the front of the building and an open plan bespoke fitted kitchen, breakfast room to the rear with doors opening to the rear garden. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and family bathroom with a separate shower. Externally the house has a large driveway for four vehicles with a carport and a cottage garden to the front. The rear of the property boasts a secluded patio area with steps up to the main lawn with shrub borders and a large summerhouse which could be used as a home office, workshop or gym.
The Village of Markyate benefits from a local school, shops, pubs and restaurants. More extensive shopping and leisure facilities are within easy reach of both Harpenden and St Albans. There are mainline rail services from Harpenden and Luton Parkway into London St Pancras, whilst the M1 is also only a short drive away.
