A charming detached character house enjoying beautiful large south facing gardens in the heart of this highly regarded and sought after village. Also benefiting from a detached self contained annexe. Viewing essential.
Description Bell Bridge House is a delightful detached grade II listed period house and provides accommodation which is full of charm and character and is set in a beautiful village position with large south facing garden backing onto paddocks and a detached self contained annexe that has recently been fully refurbished.
"As soon as we walked up to the house I was sure it would be our next home. I immediately fell in love with it and as soon as I saw the garden that was it, we had to buy it". Said the owner.
"We've been here some years now and the village is so friendly with a lovely community. The village pub is nearby offering great food and a lovely atmosphere. Buntingford is on our doorstep and offers everything we need day to day and we can get to a train station in 15 or 20 minutes"
Having installed central heating, refurbished the bathrooms and generally improved the house the owners moved onto converting what was the garage into a self contained annexe with double bedroom, shower room and a living room with kitchenette. This is a great addition and is perfect for those who need separate accommodation for a teenager or relative or will provide a great workspace/studio.
Stepinside Entering through the front door into the hall the character this lovely home offers is immediately evident. The kitchen is double aspect and has a farmhouse feel to it. There is a good range of units and worktops with ample appliance space. A tiled floor and exposed ceiling timbers add to the country feel. A door opens to the wonderful garden which we'll come to later in the description. In the centre of the house is a delightful and good size living room with a large Inglenook fireplace with stove and a bressumer beam believed to originally be a ships timber. This room is a really comfortable place to be with its exposed timbers, Oak flooring and windows overlooking the gardens at the rear and to the front of the house. Adjoining the living room is a lovely dining room with Oak floor and enjoys windows to the side, front and rear.
Upstairs, off the landing are the three bedrooms and a remodelled family bathroom. The master bedroom is a particular feature with exposed timbers and stud-work, a vaulted ceiling and window to the front aspect. There is a good range of built in wardrobes and cupboards and a lovely en suite shower room. In addition there is a good size single bedroom and a lovely double guest bedroom.
Stepoutside Approached off the Aspenden Lane, to the front there is a good size driveway providing ample parking for several cars. The front garden is attractively laid to lawn with flower beds and shrubs.
The large rear garden is quite stunning, south facing and backs onto paddocks. To the very rear of the house is a large patio with flower beds and shrubs. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with numerous shrubs, trees and well stocked flower beds and enjoys colour and interest throughout the year. It has been cleverly planted and landscaped with pathways, a pergola, trellising, climbing plants and two ponds. There are various lovely spots in which to sit and while away the day in the garden. There is a children's playhouse, a greenhouse, summerhouse, shed and large covered log/fuel store with a back up electric generator in case of power cuts.
Selfcontainedannexe A fabulous addition that has just been completed this detached self contained annexe is ideal for those who need separate accommodation for a relative or who work from home. There is a living room/kitchen, a shower room and a double bedroom. The annexe reflects the character of the main house, is more contemporary and has a vaulted ceiling.
