Alexandra Road, Hitchin, SG5

Guide Price



This wonderfully presented two bedroom family home is set on the popular Alexandra Road, chosen for its central location and easy access to Hitchin train station, town centre and local amenities including the adjacent Ransoms Recreation ground. The property has been sympathetically modernised by the current owners, retaining the original layout, and showcases the perfect blend of modern living alongside many original features including the original doors, staircase, interior fittings, and sash windows from 1906 when the property was built. The accommodation starts with a separate entrance hall leading to a lovely living room with a box window which overlooks the front garden. Originally the parlour; this room retains its original decorative hearth tiles, door, and even the ceiling lamp from when electricity was first introduced. A second reception room leads through to the kitchen which has been fitted with various wall and floor mounted units with eco-friendly Bamboo worktops over. Integrated appliances include, oven with a five ring gas ‘gas-on-glass’ hob and extractor, dishwasher with space and services for fridge/freezer and washing machine. A door opens through to a dining room which has additional built in storage and worktops. The raised ceiling allows a light and airy feel, and this reflects that this was originally the wash-house of the property, where all washing and bathing would have taken place. From here the original back door, which has been restored and double glazed, provides access to the rear garden. On the first floor are two bedrooms and a beautiful four piece suite family bathroom, including a wet-room shower, roll top bath, and new gas combi-boiler. A staircase leads up to the second floor where a loft space provides an additional useful and versatile space, currently used as an office by the vendor, with a Velux window overlooking the south-facing rear garden and the adjacent park and allotments. Outside the front garden retains the original black and red quarry tiled pathway leading to the front door. The rear garden has a decked area ideal for the evening Sun, and the rest is predominantly laid to lawn with a variety of plant, shrub and tree borders. At the end of the garden is a modern brick built studio/workshop which has full width aluminium bi-folding doors and electricity, ideal for those looking for a home office or den. To appreciate the property in full viewings are highly recommended.
