Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this renovated 3-bedroom detached home in a prime central Royston location, set back nicely from the road. This property benefits from a plot approaching a third of an acre, with planning granted for a large extension, pool and outbuilding, bringing the property from 1300 sq ft to circa 3000 sq ft. The outbuilding is currently approved as a pool house, but could be revised if desired.

This renovated 3-bedroom detached property enjoys great kerb appeal, set back nicely from the road in a prime central location of Royston. There is currently access to a single integral garage, front garden and expansive driveway for off-road parking. The granted planning permission would transform the frontage to allow for parking, a turning circle, and access to a detached double garage.

Upon stepping inside, the entrance hallway currently benefits from carpets, pendant lighting, stairs to the first floor and doors through to the downstairs living space, including a cloakroom WC. Planning permission would allow for a larger entrance hallway and converted garage, with integrated storage, a spacious cloakroom WC, and access to a playroom.

The lounge is a bright and welcoming room, currently enjoying windows to a dual aspect, carpets, integrated shelving, pendant lighting, and room for furniture. With the new plans, this would see the lounge expanded considerably, benefiting from 2 windows to a front aspect and vast amounts of space for furniture. There would also be a large formal dining area created, with windows and double French doors to the rear garden.

The kitchen currently benefits from a window and double French doors to the rear, a range of modern base and wall units, wood worktops and upstands, wood flooring, inset spotlights, an integrated oven, gas hob, extractor hood, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, and space for a dining setting, washing machine and other small kitchen appliances. The new planning permission would see this entire space transformed into a stunning open-plan kitchen/snug/family room, with a range of modern units, an island, double bifold doors and windows to the rear, roof lanterns, and a separate utility space with access to the side of the house. 

Upstairs to the first floor, this 3-bedroom and 1-bathroom detached property is already very spacious but would be expanded considerably under the new planning permission. The granted permission allows for 4 well-proportioned double bedrooms, integrated storage and linen cupboards, and a family bathroom comprising a freestanding bath, a double shower, a WC and a hand wash basin. The master bedroom would benefit from a large dressing room and an en-suite, comprising a freestanding bath, a double sink, and a WC. Bedrooms 2 and 3 would also enjoy their own en-suite shower rooms.

Outside to the rear, the garden is an incredibly large size, and would still be with the house extension plans. The garden is fully enclosed by fencing, laid to an expansive lawn with vast amounts of space for garden furniture, family meals and entertaining guests. The approved planning permission allows for a large swimming pool to be built, alongside a versatile outbuilding. The plans currently outline a pool house, with a gym, bar, seating area, shower room and changing area, but depending on requirements, these plans could be adjusted if necessary.

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!
