About the Property

An absolutely charming two bedroom cottage situated in Chalkdell Path which is a very sought after location within easy walking distance of the town centre in fact it takes the owners just ten minutes to walk into town. The path is very popular because it is completely traffic free and therefore very safe for children and pets. It is also close to The Green on Oughtonhead Way which is used by the residents like a village green for organised events and parties.

The accommodation of the cottage includes, entrance hall, dining room with a door to the stairs, living room with decorative fireplace, fitted kitchen, utility room/shower room. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a cloakroom. Outside there is a lovely private courtyard with access round to the front as well.

Chalkdell Path runs from Oughtonhead Way to Maxwell’s Path across the site known as Chalkdell. The land was originally known as Chalk Dell Shot (another name for a furlong), part of the Burford Field. In 1830, when a new workhouse was needed to replace the one in Bancroft, Chalk Dell land was purchased from Charles Lucas. The workhouse became Chalkdell Hospital in the 1940s and finally Hitchin Hospital in 1972. It was finally demolished this year to make way for a new development.

The owners rent out a garage in Maxwells Path (which is at the end of the path) for £50 per month and have paid for this for the year and it is thought the owner would carry on this arrangement.
