White Horse Cottage occupies an unrivalled position on the edge this popular and picturesque village set in rolling countryside approximately 2 miles from the market town of Royston. The village has a thriving and active community centred around the village hall, the primary school (rated OFSTED outstanding) and the renowned public house/restaurant, as well as fantastic walks in the area on Therfield Heath which has its own golf course. There are more varied and local amenities in Buntingford and in the nearby market town of Royston including a mainline railway station (London Kings Cross 37 mins). There is also a station in Ashwell (4 miles). There is an excellent farm shop on the A10 near Melbourn as well as a small village shop in Barley (5 miles). For the road commuter there is easy access to the A10 and the A505 which leads to the A1 and M25 and to M11 and Stansted and Luton Airports. Save for a few other properties in the lane, White Horse Cottage is surrounded by fields and farmland.
The gardens and grounds of White Horse Cottage extends to just under an acre. Affording unrivalled countryside views, the gardens are delightfully secluded and fully enclosed. The cottage is set well back from the road with well-tended lawns to the front bordered by hedging with a picket gate opening to a path to the front door. The rear gardens stretch out from the back of the house with paved terrace and pergola covered dining area providing excellent dining and entertaining space. There is also an ornamental fish pond and a decked area with a hot tub. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrub planting. To the side of the house is a kitchen garden with a greenhouse (needing attention) and a further, charming "secret garden". The two bay cart lodge to the front provides covered parking and there is plenty of room for additional parking for at least 8 cars. Next to the cart lodge is a self-contained workshop with power and light.
