A truly stunning detached character house with an exceptional self contained two storey annex in an enviable position just a few minutes drive from Bishops Stortford. Beautiful gardens approaching three quarters of an acre that adjoin fields.
Description This very attractive and beautifully presented country cottage is the perfect home for those seeking a rural retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life but without the feeling of isolation with neighbours being nearby, yet still being close to amenities with Bishops Stortford just over 4 miles away.
The Nook has been greatly improved over the years and sympathetically blends the charm and character of a grade II listed period cottage with todays requirements with lovely contemporary en suite and family bathroom. Throughout, there are many examples of clever design and it is obvious that no expense has been spared during the refurbishment.
Of particular note is the annex that was recently renovated by the owners and provides an excellent facility for those seeking high quality self contained accommodation for family or for a passive income source such as Air BnB.
