Property description

The Old Magistrates Court is steeped in history, originally constructed in 1883 as part of Royston’s Police Station and Sergeants House including a court room and cells.

The renovation, carried out by its current owner, now comprises three reception rooms, including a bright sitting room with an open fireplace and a small dining room just off the kitchen. The large kitchen has been beautifully fitted and sits at the heart of the house. It features double-height ceilings, hardwood flooring, modern units, a large central island and integrated appliances. The room also has an impressive fireplace and an eye-catching glass staircase leading up to the first floor.

Off the main reception hall are several rooms originally used as police cells which offer a range of uses dependant on the new owner’s requirements. In the past they have been used as offices, gym, laundry room or play rooms. Also on the ground floor is an additional boot room, utility, sitting room and dining room. There is additional access to the large cellar which houses the boiler.

Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms and an additional single room. The principal bedroom benefits a modern en suite shower room. A family bathroom with double sink and a light and airy mezzanine that could be used as a second sitting room completes the accommodation.

Royston is a small yet bustling town in the county of Hertfordshire. It has several useful amenities, including plenty of shops, several pubs, restaurants and bars, and a choice of different supermarkets. A train station provides easy and quick access into both Cambridge and London Kings Cross.

There is a good selection of schools in Royston for both primary and secondary education. The area also offers a good selection of independent schools including St. Edmund’s College, The Perse, St. Faith’s and Bishop’s Stortford College.

The property benefits from a low maintenance, walled garden with several fruit trees and a small area of lawn as well as a large patioed seating area that was once used as the ‘exercise yard’. The space has been transformed in an area ideal for entertaining, featuring a brick-built gas fire, stainless steel gas barbecue with slate topped preparation area and inset Belfast sink with Victorian-style mixer tap and wall mounted lighting.
