We are favoured with instructions to offer for sale this rarely available two bedroom extended Victorian cottage in the heart of the town centre, with views over Harpenden Common.
Built in 1870, the property sits within a row known as the Welcombe Cottages, originally built to accommodate the staff of the nearby Welcombe House estate.
Centrally located with extensive views over the Common. Privately set back from the road behind a substantial pretty cottage style front garden, with off-road parking.
To the rear of the property is an extremely useful home office with en suite facilities. Originally a wash house, it has served as a billet for Polish airmen in the war, as well as a dining room, office, workshop and guest room over nearly a century and a half. Beyond this is a 20 metre rear garden with summer house and secluded patio area.
Harpenden is well noted for its excellent choice of schools for all ages. Good sports and social facilities, various clubs and associations and a comprehensive range of restaurants and bars. Harpenden benefits from a fast electrified train service to St Pancras International, the City, Gatwick and Brighton.
