Property Description

This is a wonderful and unique opportunity to purchase one of the oldest and premier properties in Ickleford. Rose Cottage has been in the same family for four generations and the cottage dates back to the first half of the 16th century. The property has never been extended and remains largely unaltered with many period features including two large stone fireplaces. The frame of the house was restored in 1992, this was the first time the structure of the cottage had been touched from new. The property has been recently re-thatched with Norfolk reed by a master thatcher who has been maintaining the roof for the last 40 years. The property resides in a plot of approximately 0.45 of an acre and offers great potential for development as it comes with a large number of outbuildings to the rear.

The accommodation commences on the ground floor with a side entrance porch which leads through to the kitchen. From here there is access to both the family bathroom suite, central living room with feature fire place and dining room, again with feature fireplace and front door. Off of the dining room is a generous store room with stairs rising up and leading in to bedroom two. The central hallway provides a storage room and stair way which leads up to both the principal bedroom and bedroom three. Off of this bedroom is an additional storage room.

The cottage stands well back from the road and well away from its neighbours. The whole garden is enclosed by gates and mature hedge row and offers extensive lawns, and mature trees, both fruit and ornamental. There is a driveway providing off road parking for multiple cars. To the rear of the property is extensive outbuildings including four garages, a barn and a large shed.

Ickleford is a sought-after village situated on the northern outskirts of Hitchin. It has an excellent primary school, village hall, general store, florists, and four public houses. Hitchin town provides good shopping and has a variety of bars and restaurants as well as the highly regarded Hitchin Boys and Girls Schools.
