The Property

Orchard House is a home associated with the grandest of Victorian stature, now looking to be refurbished and restored so it can be cherished as a family home for years to come. A chance to own a piece of history, located within the Orchard Road Conservation area - an area of special architectural or historic interest, character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance. Being a building of local importance, it was constructed by John Bailey Denton in 1854 on some of the land he acquired in 1851. Mr Denton was a British surveyor and civil engineer who died in 1893 in Stevenage. He was a wealthy local landowner and was responsible for building many of the houses along Orchard Road itself. Orchard House is of high Victorian architectural quality and style, boasting distinctive decorative materials, design and build of importance.

Tucked away in a secluded location, behind a high brick walled garden is this truly stunning home surrounded by ample picturesque mature grounds. Set on a 1/3 of an Acre, this is a rare opportunity to purchase this magnificent home. Vast living accommodation throughout allows for this property's layout to be adapted to suit a large modern family. It's versatility offers four reception rooms, seven bedrooms, two en-suites and two bathrooms. Further renovation of the garage area could allow for an independent annexe dwelling or large car storage area (subject to planning consents). Period features include picture rails, decorative oak panelled walls and exposed flooring, high ceilings, wine cellar and a first floor landing that provides an east/west wing separation.

Situated in the Old Town area, it's close proximity to the High Street which leads onto the New Town shopping centre and further retail parks is a huge advantage. Another positive is it's short walk to the mainline train station perfect for the London commute. Again, the property is located near Corey's Mill, Lister Hospital, Graveley and easy access to the A1(M).
