3 Bed Chalet Bungalow - Detached - Asking Price £625,000
A detached chalet style home in a tranquil lane close to countryside on the western edge of Hitchin. This is a large property with plenty of scope for further extension. The accommodation includes a large integral garage with power and light and electric garage door. A hobby room to the front which could be a third bedroom, a downstairs cloakroom, good sized kitchen and a large living room with dining area facing out onto to the lovely gardens. Upstairs there are two large double bedrooms, a bathroom and a huge walk in under eaves storage area.
The property was built in 1975 by John Ray Ltd for a member of the family and it was built land purchased from the gardens of the houses on Pirton Road. Crow Furlong was an ancient field name and there are local memories of rookeries in the vicinity. The road was created in 1931 on the footpath that ran from Grays Lane to Pirton Road.
If you continue down Crow Furlong on foot until it meets Grays Lane you can continue on until it meets West Hill and turn right for a walk into the town centre or turn left and follow the wide path down past Oughton Head Farm and onto the springs at the start of the nature reserve. You can continue on and there is a pleasant walk out towards Pirton.
West Hitchin is a very popular area and many young families move to this area due to the larger garden sizes and the proximity to the town and open countryside. There is also the very popular JMI Samuel Lucas school, which has recently expanded to a double form intake and has a great reputation. The school was rated as “Outstanding” in it’s latest Ofsted report.
This home is well situated down this quiet lane and has scope and versatility as well as a lot of space inside.
