Ensum Brown are delighted to have SOLD this detached family property in the highly popular market town of Royston. New buyers have the opportunity to completely renovate and put their own stamp on this home, benefiting from a generous plot, mature and generous gardens, no upward chain, a garage, a driveway, and close proximity to the mainline train station and town centre.

On approach, this detached home is set back from the road, with good frontage, full of mature hedgerows, trees and plants. There is access to a garage and driveway, providing off-road parking for several vehicles, as well as the opportunity to clear the space to make the area larger. With the generous plot and gardens, there is great potential to completely renovate this property, for new owners to put their own stamp on things, and also to extend subject to the correct planning permissions.

Once inside, the porch opens up into an entrance hallway, with stairs to the first floor, and doors through to the downstairs accommodation, including a cloakroom area with WC and hand wash basin. The lounge is a good size, enjoying two windows to a dual aspect, feature fireplace with hearth and pendant lighting.

The kitchen and dining rooms could be made into one open plan area to make use of the large bright space, overlooking the extensive rear garden. There is a large pantry, ex-coal cupboards, and further storage areas adjacent, which all could be converted into a sizeable utility space if required. There is also an adjoining conservatory which is currently accessed from outside but could be incorporated into the modernisation.

Upstairs to the first floor, this property continues to offer generous living space, with 3 well-proportioned bedrooms, excellent storage, and a bathroom with a separate WC. The bathroom comprises a large shower, hand wash basin and storage cupboards.

Outside, to the rear, the garden is a rare find with it being an incredibly generous size and very private. With stunning trees, hedges, shrubs and plants, as well as copious amounts of space for furniture or other garden amenities, there is huge scope to improve further and transform this lovely space into a relaxing oasis. New buyers could also extend if desired, subject to the correct planning permissions.

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!
