Hope Cottage is a charming period detached home, full of character and appeal. Perfectly balanced with this is the modern rear extension offering open plan and bright space for everyday living and dining. There is a lovely open plan sitting room with open studwork dividing it from the dining area and a fireplace with 'Jotul' stove and oak laminate flooring. The kitchen/breakfast room has doors opening to the terrace, an excellent range of oak units with granite worksurfaces and built in appliances. The reception hall to the front doubles as a study with built in cupboards and a fireplace with 'Dovre' stove. On the first floor are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room and there is a large family bathroom with freestanding bath, wash basin and low level WC. There is also an airing cupboard and cast iron fireplace.

Just 16 miles from Cambridge and with its own railway station (on the Cambridge to London line), Ashwell has much to recommend it. There are excellent amenities including a village store, bakers and butchers, post office, gift shop & café, pharmacy, three pubs and a doctor's surgery. Baldock and Letchworth Garden City offer easily reachable extensive recreational and retail facilities for a complete lifestyle. Schooling for all ages, both state and private, is readily available in the area including a primary school in Ashwell, Knights Templar in Baldock, St Christopher's and St Francis in Letchworth as well as Heath Mount and Haileybury together with all schools in Cambridge and Bedford.
Road links are excellent with easy access to the A505 and the A1 offering excellent links to London, the M25, the M11 and Stansted and Luton airports. There are excellent commuter rail links with a number of very convenient options in the area from Baldock, Ashwell & Morden (Cambridge from 24 mins) and Stevenage.

The lovely gardens of the property are a particularly noteable feature in terms of size and seclusion. They are mainly laid to lawn with steps rising from the large paved terrace providing the perfect place for private, al-fresco dining and entertaining. The gardens are fully enclosed and are well stocked with a variety of mature trees and shrubs. There is access to the front of the property at the side and a garden shed, ideal for garden machinery etc.
