A unique and attractive Grade II listed period home located on the edge of the market town of Bishop's Stortford, yet still offering a short walk to the mainline railway station, schooling and other local amenities.

The first floor offers three double bedrooms, two benefit from their own en-suite shower rooms and a further family bathroom.

As previously mentioned the house has been renovated with energy conservation in mind and so avoids any use of fossil fuels for heating and hot water. This combined with being well insulated and having a combination of double glazed and secondary glazed windows throughout result in a home with very low heating demands.

Aside to the main house there is a detached one bedroom annex and garaging. 'The Acorn' is currently operated as a successful B&B ( which offers a spacious double bedroom, separate living/dining area, shower room and kitchen. Occupiers of the B&B also can enjoy their own decked seating area. The annex accommodation is constructed from super low energy methods, with external walls built from 'I' beam timbers, insulated with 200mm of Warmcel insulation. An air tight board over the entire external skin of the building then ensures a draft free living space.

Outside, the property is set back from the road behind secure electric gates. The gated entrance leads to a large shingle driveway which offers parking for the main house and The Acorn. The gardens offer a high degree of privacy and seclusion and are laid to lawn which extends to approximately 1 acre. There is a large Polytunnel as well as planted trees and vegetable beds and the current owners have also acquired planning permission for a detached home office which measures 5m x 6m.
