The Property - This fine modern individual country house enjoys a truly stunning rural setting, located towards the end of a quiet country lane and, surrounded by open countryside, with outstanding views virtually to all sides.

The house is entered via an impressive porch and gracious reception hall. The remarkably spacious ground floor includes a large sitting room with a fine inglenook fireplace complete with wood-burning stove, splendid kitchen/breakfast room, pleasant garden room and an impressive snooker room. A dining room, study, utility room, cloakroom/WC and shower room complete the ground floor.

The first floor is equally splendid with a galleried landing and five double bedrooms. The master bedroom suite has a large, well fitted en suite bathroom and a dressing room and the second bedroom has an en suite shower room. The family bathroom has a corner bath and a separate shower cubicle.

All the principle rooms enjoy outstanding views over the surrounding countryside and the house benefits from sealed unit double-glazing with leaded lights and oil fired central heating.

There is an extensive loft over the garage and snooker room, approached via a stair from the garage and with a number of roof-lights making it ideal for storage, hobbies or play area.

The Outside - The house stands in a good plot of about two-fifths of an acre, measuring approximately 164' by 115' (50m x 35.2m) overall. The front garden is separated from the lane by a hedge and laid to lawn with herbaceous beds and borders and ornamental trees, conifers and shrubs. The sweeping brick paved carriage driveway provides ample off-road parking and leads to the attached double garage. Open fronted log and garden store.

There are gated entrances to either side of the house leading to the rear garden, which is some 82' (25m) in depth and laid to lawn with paved patios, pergolas, herbaceous beds and borders, rose bushes, ornamental shrubs and trees and sunken paved patio.

Fine though both house and garden undoubtedly are, the true glory of this property are the exceptional views over open farmland and countryside that it enjoys. Not only are these outstanding, but the area is ideal for dog walking, rambling and horse riding.

The Location - Austage House enjoys a simply stunning rural location, set at the northern end of Austage End Lane. Austage End forms part of the delightful and sought after hamlet of King's Walden, just 4.5 miles south-west of the historic north Hertfordshire market town of Hitchin. The house is conveniently located for a choice of mainline railway stations with Hitchin at 5.3 miles, Luton 6.5 miles and Stevenage 8.5 miles. All provides regular services to London Kings Cross with the fastest journey times taking 28 minutes, 40 minutes and 23 minutes respectively.

It is equally well placed for road links with the A1(M) only 6.3 miles away and the M1 7.4 miles.

Hitchin often features as one of the best places to live in the UK and offers a wide selection of excellent shops, schools, pubs, restaurants, leisure facilities and places of worship. Letchworth Garden City, Stevenage, Luton and Welwyn Garden City are all within easy reach, widening the choice of amenities available.
