Formally known as Preston Farm and part of Princess Helena College, Dower House is a beautiful chequered red brick pattern property which has been cleverly converted into six luxury residences. Dating back to 1742 the house has an interesting past having long served the staff of the college throughout the 18th and 19th century and in 1910 was split into two three bedroom garden cottages and a separate two bedroom annexe. The property has also believed to have a connection with the royal family with HRH Duchess of Gloucester visiting and more interestingly refurbishing the house in 1992. Now Grade II Listed each property has sash windows, most have original features and all retain both individual and visitor parking, a bin-store and and secure gated entry.


STEP INSIDE:
Plot 3 is located to the front of the development with far reaching views towards Hitchin. Featuring the original water pump to its external wall this property has a walled garden surrounding its plot with a long path to the front door. Once inside there is a welcoming entrance hall with the breakfast kitchen, utility and downstairs cloakroom to one end. The remaining ground floor accommodation is completely open plan, bathed in wall to ceiling windows and fabulous French doors which create a vast atrium of space. A suspended AGA wood burner divides the lounge and dining room with cupboards to the rear of the stairs providing ample storage. Upstairs the landing splits between the master bedroom and en-suite to one end and the bathroom and remaining bedrooms to the other. All bedrooms in this plot are double bedrooms and all have breathtaking views.
