Greatly improved by the present owners, and with scope to continue those improvements, this beautiful double bay-fronted house in the heart of the town`s Conservation Area is most unusual, with so much to offer.
Firstly, its location; within walking distance of everything people love about Berkhamsted - the shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, schools and, of course, the station. Secondly, its accommodation - four double bedrooms (two with en suite facilities), a living/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, study, utility room, and a basement family room. And thirdly, the plethora of character features it boasts; everything from high ceilings, sash windows, old floorboards, tongue and grooving, dado rails, picture rails, a log burning stove, period-style radiators, exposed brick walls and pillars, stripped pine doors...It really is a house that needs to be viewed to fully appreciate.
The property is situated in Castle Street, a highly sought after location in the Conservation Area, just a quarter of a mile from both the town centre and train station.
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.
