Property Flirt: The Square, Much Hadham

This cottage is a proper cutie, tucked away in a cluster of similar homes – The Square – off the High Street in Much Hadham.  Prepare to be charmed…

Much Hadham has more than its fair share of gorgeous period and timber-framed houses, and this one is Grade II listed as well. Bits date from the 1650s, with all the character that comes along with that – timbered vaulted ceilings, open fireplaces, right-on-period windows, the lot.

Downstairs, you’ve got a hallway – that could be a study, should you fancy that – which heads into a decent-sized lounge and kitchen / breakfast room.  The kitchen has free-standing wooden units – very neat – and a range-style cooker and quarry tile floors. Bit of a country farmhouse feel, but managing to be so with a modern vibe.

Then there’s a vaulted dining room – think of the parties! – with a period fireplace.  And from there, it’s out to the garden.  Al fresco drinkies, anyone?  There’s a gravelled area off to the side with space for table and chairs – just think of those long summer evenings, dinner outside, G’n’T ‘till the sun goes down…

There’s also a shared garden for The Square, with a lawn and landscaped borders.  The residents look after that garden, so get your secateurs at the ready.

Upstairs, the two main bedrooms have vaulted ceilings – and one has those gorgeous exposed timbers.  There’s a third bedroom, too, off the main bedroom.  Nursery, maybe?  Or dressing room?  Depends on you, I guess!

The loft has been converted, too, with a pull-down ladder to a space you could use as a study – if you didn’t fancy one downstairs – or storage.  Or something else?

Don’t know Much Hadham?  Great schools, two pubs and a parish church.  Lots of good state and independent schooling in Bishop’s Stortford, too – as well as great shopping, sports stuff, and so on.  And then there’s the main line rail link into Liverpool Street.

So, what do you think?  I think it’s a cute one – but how much, eh?  Let’s find out right here.
