Barn conversion in Royston, near Hitchin

Barn conversion in town centre location in Royston, near Hitchin, Hertfordshire

Three bedroom barn conversion with vaulted lounge and master bedroom in the centre of Royston, Herts, and just minutes from shops, restaurants and the train station with links to Cambridge and London Kings Cross

King James Barn was reputedly used by the Court of King James 1st for stabling their horses when staying at the Palace in Royston to hunt wild boar on the Heath. Today, it combines modern living with traditional character in a quiet, security-gated town centre residential location, so that everyone who visits simply says “wow”.

Its three-storey vaulted living area with a galleried bedroom makes this barn conversion something truly different. With a further double bedroom, a single bedroom, a study / entrance hall and two bathrooms, plus a patio garden with fish pond, King James Barn is a modern, low-maintenance property, stuffed with character.

Just 4 minutes walk to Royston Station (Kings Cross 45 mins, Cambridge 15 mins), there are a dozen restaurants, pubs, and a pedestrian shopping centre within 2 minutes walk in our quaint English market town. And because we’re down a private driveway, it’s just so quiet, you wouldn’t know you were in the town centre!

Stansted and Luton airports are each 35 minutes drive, but we’re not over flown, except by the odd Spitfire from Duxford. The A10 is 2 minutes; the A1 and M11 are each no more than 15 minutes away.
