The Property - This much loved family home has only had two owners since it was built in around 1960. The second owner enjoyed living there so much that they did so for over half a century. As you can imagine under these circumstances, the property is now in need of updating and refurbishment, but offers tremendous scope to form a fine and spacious family home.

Set in a quiet residential close, this detached house provides versatile five bedroom accommodation and benefits from sealed unit double-glazing in timber frames. Central heating and hot water is provided by a recently installed "top of the range" Worcester gas fired condensing boiler.

The Outside - The house stands in a plot measuring about 105' by 38' (31.97m x 11.7m) overall behind a walled front garden and overlooking the 8 acre open space of the Avenue Park Playing Field. The front garden is laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and ornamental shrubs. The concrete driveway provides off-street parking and leads to the integral Garage.

Gates to either side of the house, that to the right leading to a covered passage, provide access to the rear garden (NB these are currently fixed in the closed position). The rear garden is about 59' (18m) in length and faces south and west. It is laid to lawn with paved patio, herbaceous beds and borders and ornamental shrubs, conifers and trees. Greenhouse. Shed.

The Location - Pepys Way is located on the west side of Baldock, less than half a mile from the town centre and only half a mile from the mainline railway station. The fastest train service to London King's Cross takes just 36 minutes, with Cambridge only 24 minutes away in the other direction. For those travelling by car, the east-west A505 and A507 are close by and Junction 10 on the A1(M) northbound is just a 2.2 miles away and Junction 9 southbound 2.5 miles away..

The Historic town of Baldock was reputedly founded by the Knights Templar and provides a wealth of amenities from highly acclaimed schools, a useful range of shops and fine restaurants and hostelries. The adjoining towns of Letchworth Garden City and Hitchin considerably extend the range of facilities readily to hand.
