What a wonderful history this property has. Our vendors are the first and only homeowners after relocating from Harrow Weald in North London back in December 1960! Kodak, their employers, relocated their Camera Division to Stevenage during the time the Stevenage Development Corporation were building the ''New Town'' and our vendors, as well as many of their colleagues, jumped at the chance to move into a brand new family home in Austen Paths, Chells. With three bedrooms that can comfortably accommodate double beds, a separate dining room, a wonderful garden circa 90ft in length and a garage to park the car, it was the perfect platform to raise a family. It was so ideal in fact our vendors decided to stay put even after Kodak relocated back to London and made the decision to purchase the house in February 1972. Our house proud owners have kept the property impeccably maintained over the years and it's offered sale in absolutely immaculate condition.

Austen Paths are exactly that, a cluster of paths complete with likewise residential properties in the south side of Chells, central Stevenage. It's incredible to think how much the area has changed since it was built. Our vendors still vividly remember having to get off the bus in Shephall and walk the remainder of the journey home because the route didn't stretch as far as Chells! There wasn't even a shop in the neighborhood and a Greengrocer would regularly visit and sell produce out the back of his van! Fortunately times have changed and Chells is now an extremely established neighborhood - arguably the most popular area in the ''New Town'' - and life here is much more convenient. There is a 'Premier' convenience store just a stones throw away from Austen Paths and a shopping precinct mid-way up Chells Way named The Glebe complete with a Tesco Extra, a hairdressers, a collection of takeaway restaurants, a doctors surgery and more. For schooling there are a number of choices. Our vendors family grew to include three boys who were each educated at Thomas Alleynes Academy in Stevenage Old Town however choices in Chells itself range from junior schools such as Camps Hill and Lodge Farm Primary, and secondary schools such Nobel School which has an extremely high reputation amongst locals.

Our vendors have decided the time is right to sell their property and relocate closer to their sons, however it just seems right that it's legacy continues. Could you be the next family to take over the reins?
