Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this delightful terraced cottage that is ideally situated just a short walk from Royston town centre and also, being on the southern edge of the town, just a few minutes' walk from open countryside. With retained period features and neutral modern décor this home is a perfect combination of old and new.

Stepping inside, you have a long entrance hall with wooden floors, which continue throughout the reception room space. Your main reception room is an open plan lounge and dining room, with dual aspect windows to front and French doors to the rear garden, making this room feel especially light and airy and although open plan there is also a nice degree of separation. Period features in the room include the bay sash windows to the front and a brick chimney breast in each of the living and dining area, including a wood burning stove in the living room, perfect for those colder winter days and evenings. Another nice feature is the recessed display shelving that you will find on the side of each of the fireplaces.

To the rear of the ground floor, you have a kitchen that again perfectly combines old and new, with a Butler sink, quarry tiled floor and solid wood work surfaces, combined with nice white wall and base units and feature inset ceiling spotlights. You have an integrated oven, four ring gas hob with chrome extractor hood over and space for a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Off the kitchen you have a ground floor bathroom, typical of most period homes, but the benefit of this property is that you also have an en-suite to the main bedroom on the first floor. The ground floor bathroom comprises a white three piece suite that includes a freestanding roll top bath.

Going to the first floor, you have 3 well-proportioned bedrooms and certainly no box room like in most homes, there is also the added benefit of the attic room which has a roof window to make this an excellent useable space. As previously mentioned, the master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room, so no treks downstairs in the middle of the night required.

Finally, outside you have a fully enclosed rear garden that has been landscaped for ease of maintenance and combines a large paved patio area and timber decking and side access is also available. To the front a dwarf wall and gate that gives access to the front and parking on road immediately to the front is readily available.
