Gilpins Gallop, Stanstead Abbotts

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
CHAIN FREE...Having been in the same family ownership since the 1950's, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a semi-detached house that is located on the fringes of the village, yet still within comfortable distance of the High Street and St Margaret's station.

Although well cared for over the years, the property would now benefit from some internal cosmetic improvements, however the property already has modern Upvc double glazing and gas central heating throughout, allowing for the ability to move straight-in.

There is tremendous scope to alter and extend, as neighbouring properties have already done so. An undercover passage to the side of the house with two brick-built outbuildings provide the opportunity to extend to the side, with further opportunity to the rear and also the loft (S.T.P.P) depending on a buyers needs.

The current accommodation in brief provides: Entrance hall, living room, kitchen, utility room, separate w.c. The first floor offers two generous double bedrooms plus a good size single and a modern, recently installed shower room. A pretty cottage style front garden leads through to a generous 65ft x 32ft (approx.) rear garden

Stanstead Abbotts has a variety of village shops, Co-Op store/post office, doctors and dental surgery, a number of pubs and restaurants and a regarded village J.M.I. School. There are delightful walks to be enjoyed along the River Lee navigation and the New River with Lea Valley Regional Park close-by.
