Poynings is a five bedroom, three en-suite modern detached residence set within approximately ¼ of an acre backing onto paddocks and equestrian land. Situated in the quiet hamlet of Todds Green with easy access to Hitchin, Stevenage and Letchworth all of which have excellent fast rail links to London Kings Cross being ideal for any commuter buyer or large family.


STEP INSIDE
Originally built in 1959 this fantastic and remodelled home was extensively refurbished in 2013/14 extending the accommodation to include the addition of two extra bedrooms, three additional en-suites bathrooms, a utility, office, integral garage and enlargement of the kitchen and lounge.


GROUND FLOOR ACCOMMODATION:
Entry into the double height internal hallway is via a glazed UPVC door with glazed side panels under a tile covered porch with the floor laid with limestone Travertine tiles. The oak/glass panelled staircase is complimented by a broad panelled west facing window which allows natural light to fill into the space below. The hall also has alarm panel and intercom/gate entry systems, automated lighting and controls for the central heating.

The unique selling point and heart of the home is the multi-functional open plan kitchen/dining room which sits on solid oak flooring and is accessed via the internal oak/glass bi-fold doors from the hall. A large centre island in the kitchen area commands the space and is further complimented with lower oak kitchen base units with quartz work tops, glass splash backs, wall cupboards, integrated dishwasher, cooker space for large rangemaster, extractor hood and a large Belfast sink.

GROUND FLOOR CONTINUED:
The lounge, equally as impressive, extends 28ft x 13ft with dual aspect windows, 7kw log burner set within a limestone fire surround, solid oak flooring and bi-folding doors onto the rear garden. The separate utility/boot room has a tiled floor, Butler sink and plumbed spaces for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The utility room also accesses the integral garage and the downstairs cloakroom. The office which overlooks the rear garden is semi vaulted and houses the CCTV control system.

FIRST FLOOR ACCOMMODATION:
Up on the first floor the oak stained softwood flooring continues throughout all the rooms along with solid oak doors. The galleried landing off the hallway leads to five double bedrooms which all feature built-in wardrobes, three of which also occupy private en-suites. There is also a separate family bathroom. All bathrooms and en-suites are part tiled with Travertine wall tiles and have fitted showers and automated lighting.

STEP OUTSIDE:
Accessed from the road via bespoke steel remote controlled electric and pedestrian gates, Poynings sits behind a mature laurel hedge with grassed area and a large block paved driveway providing off-road parking for up to six vehicles. A block paved area leads to the integral garage with hedging/fencing to both sides securing the space. Security systems include alarm, lighting and CCTV coverage. The garage is accessible by car via the insulated remote-controlled electronic door and includes automated lighting, power sockets and the gas and electric meters.

PLOT SIZE AND GARDENS:
The plot extends approximately 110ft x 55ft to the rear overlooking the paddocks beyond and features a large block paved patio area accessed from both sides via separate gates. Two split level manicured lawns with mature hedging down both sides dominate the garden with secure fencing at rear providing adequate dog/child proofing. There is also a feature pond in lower level lawn with blue slate surround and cherry and plum trees in the raised section respectively. Garden storage is complimented by two timber sheds, one with power and a small summer house.


LOCATION:
The property sits back from the main road on a slightly lower gradient from the street with a mix of ultra modern and traditional detached bungalows and houses set apart from each other on both sides. The road connects Todds Green to the nearby town of Stevenage and quaint village of Little Wymondley and is well served for excellent local school catchments. Some of these include Hitchin Girls and Boys Schools, St Christopher�s independent School and St Francis� College which are both in Letchworth Garden City. It is worth mentioning that Kingshott prep school is only a 5 minute drive away. Rail links are just 1.3 miles from Stevenage train station from where commuter trains, to Kings Cross, take just 30 minutes and Hitchin which 2.4 miles from the property. Road travel also has easy access via the A602 and A505 connecting Hitchin with Stevenage/Luton and Cambridge and London respectively.


AGENTS NOTE:
Note: Access to the property is wheelchair friendly and the stairs were designed so a lift can be installed for access to the first floor. Additional insulation was installed between the floors to provide soundproofing and extra insulation, this provides warmth in the winter and keeps the house cooler in the summer. The house was designed with low maintenance in mind with no gloss painting both inside or outside. The loft space could be converted to provide additional rooms if required S.T.P.P.
