Full Details

VIA Properties are delighted to present this is a spacious and grand Victorian Villa that retains its period character and charm and offers substantial family accommodation of around 2,100 square feet over four floors. The house was built in 1895 for local brewery owner, Charles Peter Christie, as accommodation for his youngest son (there's a stone in the garden wall with his initials: CPC).

It has much for lovers of Victorian elegance to appreciate with good-sized and well proportioned rooms, high ceilings, high sash windows and many original features including original fireplaces, Victorian plasterwork (cornices, dado and picture rails), period doors with original door furniture and high skirting boards - even the Victorian servant's bell in the dining room.

The property has five bedrooms arranged over two floors, four of which are doubles, a large bathroom and separate cloakroom. The ground floor has two grand receptions with a further kitchen and family room which could be knocked through to make one large kitchen/dining room (subject to consent). There is also a useful and substantial cellar with 6'2 ceiling height. The back garden is walled and mostly lawn and there is a garage and access to the lane behind.

Rare opportunity to live in such a large comfortable family home so close to Town.


The property sits on a pleasant residential street only two minutes' walk from both Hoddesdon town centre and Barclay Park, a favourite with families over the years. Hoddesdon, which is currently undergoing extensive improvements, is a market town with Wednesday and Friday markets and has a good range of local shops, supermarkets and other services as well as a bustling high street with a wide selection of pubs and restaurants - all within easy walking distance.

Hoddesdon is popular with commuters due to the close proximity of the A10 and railway services to London from Rye House Station and Broxbourne. There are excellent schools at all levels in the area including St Augustine's Primary School, St Catherine's Primary School, Robert Barclay (Primary and Senior), John Warner School and Haileybury College up the road in Hertford Heath.

Hoddesdon sits in the Lea Valley so is close to lakes and gravel pits offering leisure activities including fishing and sailing. The town is close to some beautiful Hertfordshire countryside including Broxbourne Woods which is the county's only National Nature Reserve. Visit for information on local amenities.
