Property Insight
Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this substantial six bedroom detached family property with a two bedroom bungalow/annexe located down a private track on a sought-after road in Royston. This is a rare opportunity with endless possibilities, close to the town centre, with a substantial barn offering development potential (SSTP), mature gardens, an enclosed paddock, and a large driveway.

This stunning six-bedroom detached family property enjoys excellent kerb appeal, located close to the town centre, down a private track on a sought-after road, with an attractive and tidy frontage, mature front gardens with hedgerows, trees and shrubs, and a large driveway with ample parking. 

Upon stepping inside, the porch opens up into an entrance hallway, with stairs to the first floor and doors through to the downstairs living space, including a large study. The kitchen is an excellent size, benefiting from a window to a rear aspect, a range of base and wall units, laminate worktops, a large island/breakfast bar, a range cooker, tiled flooring and splashbacks, spotlights, and space for a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and other small kitchen appliances. The utility is a generous size, with extra base and wall units, perfect for storage, and lots of space for larger kitchen appliances. There is also access through to a cloakroom WC.

The dining room adjacent is a very attractive room, with windows and double French doors to the garden, pendant lighting, carpets, and space for a large dining table, chairs and storage furniture. The living room is an exceptionally large space, with stunning wood flooring, a fireplace with a wood-burning stove and an exposed brick chimney breast, integrated storage, windows to a front aspect, stairs to the master suite, and vast amounts of space for furniture. 

Upstairs to the first floor, this six-bedroom home continues to offer impressive accommodation, with two landings leading to six well-proportioned bedrooms, integrated storage, and two family shower rooms, comprising a shower, WC and hand wash basin. 

Outside, there is access to a substantial barn, offering the potential to develop further, subject to the correct planning permissions.

Agents note: If the barn was converted to a high standard, we estimate the final value to reach somewhere in the region of £750,000 as a separate dwelling, subject to specification.

There is also a large bungalow/annexe, comprising kitchen and utility rooms, living and dining rooms, two bedrooms, a study which could be used as a third bedroom if desired, and a shower room, with a shower, WC and sink. The main bedroom also benefits from integrated wardrobes and an en-suite, comprising a shower, WC and hand wash basin. 

The mature gardens offer a wonderful space to relax, unwind and get back to nature, with vast amounts of room for garden furniture, enjoying meals outside and entertaining guests. There are various colourful trees, and beds full of plants, flowers and shrubs, as well as a large enclosed paddock. New owners also have lots of scope to put their own stamp on things and add further value.

Location - Royston
Royston is a traditional English town, located within Hertfordshire and on the border of Cambridgeshire, just 14 miles from the city of Cambridge. Royston has a wealth of rich heritage, grown from the crossing of two ancient thoroughfares—Roman and prehistoric—and has attracted many great names, including many Royal family members.

The town enjoys numerous green open spaces, including the renowned Therfield Heath nature reserve, and lies on the northern slopes of the Hertfordshire Chalk Downs. Royston even has its own cave, revealed back in the 18th Century, carved out of chalk and located under the crossroads in the centre of town.

On the outskirts of the town, there is a larger group of supermarkets, and within the town centre, there is a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, bars and public houses, offering a diverse mix of food and drink, as well as a market and a high street full of bustling shops, including post offices, convenience stores, hairdressers, and clothing boutiques. Residents have access to a range of doctor’s surgeries, dentists, schools, and a leisure centre, providing a fully stocked gym and fitness classes. Whether you are young or old, single, a couple or a family, Royston has all the facilities you may need, and there are even lots of clubs and activities to join, such as tennis, rugby, hockey and golf.

As well as people moving up and down the property ladder locally, Royston is a very affluent area and is becoming more and more popular with the commuter market. There is great security in that house prices have held well through turbulent markets and thrived above the national average in more settled general economic and market conditions.

Royston boasts excellent transport links for residents, visitors and businesses. The town is located on the A10, with the A1M and M11 each within a 15-minute drive. There is a mainline train station with a regular service direct to London Kings Cross as quick as 38 minutes. If you want to travel internationally, London Stansted airport and London Luton Airport are both just half an hour's drive away.

If you aren’t familiar with Royston and its beautiful surrounding countryside, we recommend paying it a visit today!
