A beautifully presented Grade II listed period home dating back in parts to the late C15th, and situated on Holywell Hill, just past the turning from Sopwell Lane as you descend the hill. 37 and 39 Holywell Hill are some of the oldest and best preserved medieval buildings in St Albans. This fine character building has had many uses over the centuries, a beer house, hostel, grocery store to name a few, but now provides a quite stunning home with a unique slice of history.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors to include an enclosed entrance porch, from which leads an open plan sitting room with an abundance of exposed timbers and bems, enjoying a feature Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. From here there is a dining area with stairs to the first floor and a door to the fitted kitchen. From the kitchen is a hatch in the floor and steps down to a cellar room.
On the first floor are two bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate shower.
The historical city of St Albans provides for a comprehensive range of shopping, restaurants and leisure facilities. Locally there is an excellent selection of schooling, both state and private.

The M25 is available at junction 21A connecting to the national motorway network. The surrounding countryside provides for an abundance of leisure activities including walking, riding, numerous golf courses, leisure centres and many areas of historical interest.
To the rear of the property and accessed from both the kitchen and the garage is a private courtyard garden. Timber doors from Holywell Hill lead you into a garage space providing off street parking and access to the garden.
There is potential for extension in both the loft space and the garage space (subject to necessary planning and listed building consents).
