DESCRIPTION A beautiful detached period cottage that is in a delightful rural hamlet yet only 10/15 minutes drive from the nearby market towns of Ware and Buntingford.

Steen Cottage is full of charm and character with many period features including a stunning inglenook fireplace with bread oven in the living room, exposed timbers, Yorkshire sliding casement windows and even its own well. The cottage is believed to date back to the 16th or early 17th century and is Grade II listed.

The accommodation itself is old fashioned and in need of modernising, however, there is great scope to improve and enlarge, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

Of particular note is the wonderful large gardens that extend to approximately one third of an acre and enjoy a good degree of privacy. Within the garden is a very useful outbuilding that is divided into a useful utility room, workshop and a wc. With some alteration this could be utilised as an office/studio. In addition the cottage benefits from a garage and driveway to one side of the house.


STEP INSIDE As soon as one walks in through the front door, one is aware of the history and character that the cottage enjoys. The entrance lobby opens into the living room which is a lovely large room with windows to both the front and side of the house. There is an impressive Inglenook fireplace still with its original bread oven, and exposed timbers. Off the living room is a garden room at the rear of the house, a downstairs bathroom and a separate WC. At the other end of the house is found the dining room with open fireplace and the kitchen is to the very rear of the house opening onto the garden. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, one with a separate WC off it and a walk in wardrobe/dressing room that lies between two of the bedrooms. 

STEP OUTSIDE The cottage has a pretty front garden laid to lawn with path leading to the front door. To the side of the cottage is a driveway that leads to a single garage.

The rear garden is a particular feature with a patio to the rear of the house on which is an original hand dug well.

Beyond the patio is a long and wide rear garden that is laid to lawn with many mature shrubs and trees.

Within the garden is a very useful outbuilding that is divided into a utility room, workshop and a wc. With some alteration this could be utilised as an annexe/office/studio. 

LOCATION Nasty is a pretty, rural hamlet that is well placed for those who are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life yet still need to be conveniently placed within easy reach of the A10 and subsequently the local towns of Ware, Hertford and Buntingford. Ware is just 10/15 minutes drive and provides a good range of amenities with a thriving café culture, pubs, restaurant's and a station into London's Liverpool Street.

Throughout the area there are footpaths and bridleways.
