**Guide Price £400,000-£415,000**Leave behind the cosmopolitan 'big town' culture and enjoy the village lifestyle at St Pauls Walden. Set back on an elevated position, this charming terrace offers extended, free flowing accommodation most suited to the 21st century lifestyle modern families lead and an interior that displays a combination of contemporary design fused with various character features such a cast iron wood burner and a bay windowed frontage. Despite already occupying an enviable footprint the current vendors are happy to supply ambitious purchasers with plans previously granted for a loft conversion including dormer and single storey rear extension. The latter would certainly not encroach far into the garden which measures a staggering 135ft in distance (STMS) and is bounded by acres of farmland to the rear. Housed just a step up from the patio also sits a timber framed outhouse complete with insulation, window, and isolated power that'd make a great office for home working professionals or a man-cave to dedicate time to your favourite hobby. Parents, fear not, the village lifestyle isn't going to impact your schools choices - St Paul's Walden infact falls within the catchment of Hitchin Boys & Girls schools and all of Harpenden's hugely desirable private and state schools.Situated just five miles south of Hitchin, only a mile separates the idyllic narrow villages of St Paul's Walden and Whitwell, and the two breath together as one close knit community. A walk along the beech-lined avenues and the atmosphere of the two villages become immediately apparent with country pubs bustling with regulars and ramblers appearing and re-appearing from the network of muddy footpaths as friendly greetings echo in the air. Many years ago St Paul's Walden was infact the larger of the two villages but it is plainly clear this is no longer the case with Whitwell outgrowing it's neighbour over the years. It provides the parish school, St Paul's Walden Primary School, Whitwell Post Office & Stores and two public houses. One trump card residents of St Paul's Walden are always keen to draw however is a particularly notable former resident - Queen Elizabeth The Queen's Mother. The popular royal figure grew up in St Paul's Walden Bury, one of two baroque and Jacobean inspired stately homes that stand elegantly amongst breathtaking gardens, and it's commonly believed it was these very gardens that King George VI romantically proposed back in 1923.
