Property ID : 2610
For Sale £795,000.00 - Houses
It is a real privilege to offer this true gem of a property hidden in the heart of Broxbourne. As soon as you enter the chalet bungalow there is a great feel to this surprisingly spacious home. Many of the 1920’s features have somehow been carefully retained and the current family have lived there for over thirty years.
The property offers an enormous flexibility in the arrangement of the accommodation and is almost Tardis like, providing the incoming purchaser the scope to extend or alter the footprint to suit their own requirements, subject of course to the necessary planning approvals.
The front and rear gardens are a true delight and have been the subject of great thought and planning over the years to provide a real haven.
St Michaels Road is one of Broxbourne’s premier residential turnings and is highly sought after, with amenities close by including: the busy shopping parade, schools for most grades, and a choice of parklands. Transport links are good with convenient access to road networks and the British Rail Station is within walking distance, serving both London and Cambridge.
Early viewing of this home is advised in order to avoid disappointment.
