EPC Band D
Situated in a highly desirable and quiet location on the north west side of town, we are pleased to present this 1960s detached family home requiring complete renovation and offering scope for further expansion subject to necessary planning permissions. The property falls outside of the local conservation area, so could be extended substantially under permitted development. The property sits on a good-sized plot of 0.3 acres and is within easy walking distance of the town centre as well as local schooling, notably the Bishop’s Stortford College and Northgate Primary. This enviable corner of town enjoys excellent sporting facilities including cricket, tennis, and hockey clubs on Cricketfield lane and rugby and squash clubs on Hadham road, all within a short walk of Maple Close.
The current accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises: Entrance hallway, sitting/dining room, and cloakroom. Stairs rise to first floor where there are four good sized bedrooms, a study/storage room, and a family bathroom. Externally there is driveway parking, a single integral garage, and mature gardens.
Agents Note: We understand that there is an approved application in place to demolish the existing house and the erection of a replacement dwelling. Plans are available on the East Herts planning portal, reference APP/J1915/W/17/3178038. We are advised by vendors that there are internal structural defects, an independent structural engineer’s report is available for inspection, contact Russell Property for more information. There is a small parcel of land marked ‘green’ on a plan in ownership of the electricity board, within the perimeter of 1 Maple Close, details and a title plan are available on request.
