Built in 1865 as one of the original Pembroke End estate managers houses, number 25 has been both a bakery and a hardware shop in its distant past. Two spinster sisters (the Bates) were recognized former residents who owned a local jewelers and at such a time, the house was much smaller, double fronted, with a detached barn featured to the rear. In recent years, a side extension has been added to create an additional reception room and in 1986 our current owners double storey extended the rear to create the addition of a larger ground floor and a fourth bedroom on the first floor.


Number 25 may have the appearance of a typical country cottage but in reality this property is deceptively spacious thanks to its open plan family friendly layout and unusually large position on the street. Entry into the ground floor is via a welcoming porch accessed via a flagged path. A light and airy space with stained original wooden floors, there is an area for coats with doors to the main reception rooms and access straight up the main staircase. To the left is the duel aspect sitting room, featuring a gas coal/log effect fire, brand new wooden effect flooring and modern touches including USB charging sockets and Cat 5 ethernet cabling.

A door in the sitting room accesses the lower ground floor cellar head which is currently used as a storage facility and has not been tanked. To the opposite end of the entrance is the separate lounge which has been recently carpeted and benefits from a focal fireplace. From the lounge the kitchen faces towards the rear garden and was installed in 2018 with wooden block worksurfaces, Belfast sink and built in appliances. This room is ideal for watching younger children playing in the garden and also leads to a separate utility/pantry and cloakroom to one end.

On the first floor all bedrooms come off the main stairway onto a galleried landing. There are four good-sized double bedrooms in total with the first bedroom enjoying a Jack and Jill ensuite along with a separate family bathroom which concludes the space.

The property sits in the middle of the street commanding a central and dominant position thanks to its noticeable white painted brick and slate tiled roof. Largely secluded via high level private hedging there is a modest front garden with a two car driveway to the side which gives access to both the front of the house and down its perimeter boundary. On a total plot of 0.16 acres the rear garden stretches 130ft from the house on a flat plot which is mainly laid to lawn and also features a raised patio with retractable sun-shade, established shrubs and trees, additional patio (ideal for those summer BBQ�s) and a secluded garden utility area with a large shed with power and lighting.

Number 25 is located just 0.2miles from the center of Baldock with Tesco�s supermarket, Baldock surgery and the High Street all within easy walking distance. Baldock is in the district of North Hertfordshire and lies 33 miles north of London, 15 miles southeast of Bedford, and 14 miles north northwest of the county town of Hertford. Access to Baldock is via the North Road which benefits from a range of excellent local public houses, restaurants and boutiques ideal for eating out, socialising or shopping. Highly regarded schools are within close proximity with The Knights Templar School for example, an excellent secondary school, just 0.3 miles distant. St Francis College and St Christopher�s private school are located in Letchworth, only a short drive away.

Perfect for any commuter buyer, the property is located within 1.1 miles away from Baldock Services leading to the A1 (M) motorway connecting the house with both London and Cambridge respectively. The nearest railway station, Baldock Station is just over 0.5miles from the house. Positioned on the East Coast Mainline there is a frequent service with parking available all day.
