AT HOME Spring/Summer 2022

CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE IN HERTFORDSHIRE



“AT HOME” A COLLECTION OF SOME OF THE AREA’S FINEST PROPERTIES FOR SALE

Welcome to the spring edition of our “At Home” magazine. Hertfordshire and central Bedfordshire are tantamount in many people’s minds as an area of beautiful countryside, comfortable commuting times and fantastic educational and leisure facilities. This year marks our 30th anniversary of selling some of the area’s finest homes, with a friendly, professional, caring and pro-active approach. As a company we guarantee exceptional customer service to all of our clients and take pride in the many positive reviews we receive, as well as reliable word of mouth recommendations. We are also delighted to note that we now have a 5-star Google ranking! This is testament to our promise that the Putterills team will do their upmost to offer you an expert, approachable and stress-free moving journey. Throughout the years we have always adapted to changing trends and given the best advice to suit current market conditions, whether that be through recessions, successive changes in Government, financial crisis and property booms. Much of what the Putterills family do is behind the scenes, as we do not rely solely on Internet presence - indeed many of our clients do not want their homes displayed on the various property portals, which is why we offer a bespoke, low-key marketing service which helps put buyers and sellers together through our very long-established database and experienced staffing. If you are thinking of buying, selling or letting your property, then do please call your local, trusted, property experts for friendly and up-to-the minute advice.

Fox Cottage is a Grade II Listed country home occupying a commanding rural position with substantial grounds extending to approximately five acres combining both formal gardens and paddocks with additional land which could hold development opportunities for both residential or commercial use (subject to relevant consent). The original cottage is believed to date back to the 14th Century with a substantial later extension in 1972, annexing the cottage to create two homes of great scope and potential ideal for multi-generational living. Fox Cottage lends itself to future improvement and extension subject to planning and listed building consent being obtained and could be readily reinstated to one family dwelling if preferred. The cottage would further suit prospective buyers with equestrian interests offering excellent grazing opportunities for horses with a number of outbuildings suitable for conversion to stables. In our opinion the extensive grounds would also be suitable for micro-farming, horticultural and small holding interests. EPC: Exempt
