Situated in one of Berkhamsted`s most prestigious locations, this handsome four bedroom detached home is available to purchase for the first time in almost forty years.
Lovingly maintained, the generous accommodation includes three principal reception rooms, a kitchen with separate utility room, and a large, double glazed conservatory which enjoys westerly views over the rear garden. The sitting room features a fireplace with gas fire, and three attractive, full-height, arched windows.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms in all; the master bedroom has an en suite shower room, and there is also a family bathroom.
Outside, the property enjoys a generous, mature, well stocked plot. The lovely rear garden soaks up the afternoon sunshine with its westerly aspect, and measures around 75ft in length. Featuring a large lawn and a good sized patio, it really is the perfect place to enjoy al fresco dining, or simply to relax and unwind after a hard day. The garden also features a nursery tunnel with two mature grapevines.
To the front, a magnificent oak tree greets you at the entrance to the property. A driveway provides private parking for approximately three cars, and there is also a double garage with power, light, and an electrically-operated door.
Finally, there is considerable scope for extension if desired, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
The property is located in a sought after private road, close to schools and only around a mile from the town centre.
Berkhamsted itself is a busy market town, located to the West of Hertfordshire and just 30 minutes from London by train. Perhaps the town`s most prominent role in National affairs came in 1066 when William the Conqueror was handed the English Crown. Berkhamsted Castle was built following the granting of the crown, and famous names associated with it include Geoffrey Chaucer who was Clerk of Works, and Thomas Becket who was Constable of the Castle in the 12th Century. Substantial ruins of the Castle still remain today.
Today, the town is highly desirable for commuters, with excellent transport links by road and rail. The mainline train station provides a regular and direct link to London Euston in a little over 30 minutes. Major road connections nearby include the M25 (J20) and the M1 (J8 and J9). The A41 dual carriageway runs to the South of the town, providing an excellent connection to Hemel Hempstead, Watford, Tring and Aylesbury.
There is a good range of leisure facilities in the area. There is walking and riding just minutes away in the surrounding countryside and on the National Trust`s 5,000 acre Ashridge Estate, while nearby golf courses include Ashridge, Berkhamsted, Mentmore and The Grove. The area offers excellent schooling, including Berkhamsted School, founded in 1541, and Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.
Berkhamsted offers a wide range of shopping, from independent boutiques to national names such as Waitrose and Laura Ashley. The larger towns of Hemel Hempstead and Watford offer wider facilities, including Debenhams and John Lewis department stores respectively. Milton Keynes and London are both easily accessible too.
