Tenure: Freehold

This superbly refurbished and extended Grade II* listed detached home located in the highly desirable village of Pirton is available for a fortunate buyer.

Located on a charming green in the village of Pirton the property offers the benefit of both a semi-rural lifestyle and modern living. The village is one of the most sought after in Hertfordshire with amenities including a shop, post office, two pubs and a fantastic primary school. Within ten minutes' drive is the thriving town of Hitchin with further amenities including high street stores, bars, restaurants and cafes. Hitchin also provides a mainline railway station offering fast and frequent services to London Kings Cross taking less than thirty minutes.

This fifteenth century home has been lovingly and sympathetically refurbished and extended by the current owners. Having lived locally all their lives and familiar with the property as the most historic in the village they wanted to create a new fantastic character home giving a much loved building a new lease of life. The original parts to the property date back to 1420 with certain aspects added around one hundred years later. More recent additions are a period extension and a new barn style extension by the current owners.

The owners have done a fantastic job of sympathetically restoring the property with high end finishes and character features, including stunning exposed beams, exposed brick, fireplaces, latch doors, handmade country kitchen and traditional style sanitary ware.

The downstairs is a great tale of two halves. The charming hallway is a great introduction to the property's character. With feature original brick flooring, ample space amongst the exposed wall beams for hats and coats and cloakroom it is far from small.

Within the oldest and more original side to the property are a fantastic dual aspect lounge with inglenook fireplace complete with wood burner and a study with a gorgeous view of the green. Both beautifully presented with the original beams as a key feature.

To the other side of the downstairs is a magnificent modern style open plan space that has been wonderfully blended with the same character features as the original building. Outstanding oak beams continue to frame the living room which mirrors the lounge with its dual aspect views and another exposed brick fireplace with wood burner. The beams nicely separate the country style kitchen.

The exquisite handmade kitchen was carefully designed by the owners and local joiner to create a perfect blend of style and practicality. Vast granite worktop with inset belfast sink overlooks the living room with an additional wood worktop breakfast island. A further dining space is ideally set in the bay window area offering an extremely light area for dining with views on to that side of the garden.

Upstairs is comprised of four bedrooms including a master with en-suite and family bathroom. The winding staircase arrives at an extremely spacious landing with vaulted ceiling.

The master bedroom is set in the extension side of the property with another vaulted ceiling and dormer window with a great view of the country surroundings. The master also has a great size en-suite with walk-in shower and modern finishes.

The remaining bedrooms are all also very well proportioned with a dual aspect second bedroom and feature third with a view to the green. The fourth is currently used as nursery with a quaint low level window in a steeple shaped framing.

Outside is a wonderful garden that wraps around the property with plenty of space either side. Although the entrance side to the garden is extremely adequate the opposite side is definitely the bigger of the two and ideal for play and entertaining with patio area, double brick built bbq and lawn space surrounded by mature hedging. From the living room French doors there is also a breakfast patio area at the rear of the property. It is worth noting that the entrance side to the garden has already had the permission for a driveway granted.

Character homes with modern space available are a fantastic opportunity for any prospective buyer. This is a must view to appreciate all it has to offer. Please call Fine & Country, Hitchin to book your appointment.
