About the property

Alexander Bond & Company is pleased to present for rent this charming four-bedroom detached cottage, dating back to the 18th century, boasting an abundance of character. Forge Cottage, situated in the sought-after village of St Ippolyts on the outskirts of Hitchin, offers exceptional living standards. The property has been meticulously modernised throughout, featuring Nest-controlled heating, CAT 6 wiring, WiFi hotspots, air conditioning, and soundproofing, showcasing meticulous attention to detail and making it a remarkable residence.

The cottage sits on approximately a quarter of an acre in an idyllic countryside setting yet only a few minute drive from all of Hitchin's excellent amenities.

With approximately 2600 square feet of living space, Forge Cottage welcomes you through a charming picket fence and solid oak front door into a reception hall exuding period charm with exposed timber beams, plastered walls, and original bellows. Throughout the cottage, you'll find several feature fireplaces with solid oak mantels and quarry tiled hearths, adding to its historic allure. The property also includes a fully tanked cellar/boiler room housing a modern oil-fired gas boiler and Megaflow stainless steel hot water cylinders for heating and hot water needs. Additionally, there's a TV room equipped with built-in acoustic glass and soundproofed ceilings, as well as a utility/cloakroom featuring a Burlington heritage suite.

One of the highlights of Forge Cottage is its splendid custom-built 'Neptune' kitchen breakfast room, boasting exposed original timbers and a vaulted ceiling with roof windows that flood the space with natural light. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious dining area leading to an inviting sitting room with French doors opening onto the garden and an electric Velux skylight. Viewing is highly recommended.
