This detached family home, located just half a mile from the station, is today available for sale for the first time in over forty years, and presents a wonderful opportunity for the next family to enjoy it themselves for years to come.
Inside, the accommodation, whilst requiring updating and modernising, is both spacious and light. On the ground floor, the large entrance porch leads through to a good size hallway, which in turn provides access to the cloakroom, kitchen, and a large living room. To the rear of the house, a smart, double glazed conservatory is the perfect place to enjoy the afternoon sun, with its lovely views over the rear garden. Meanwhile, the partly-vaulted kitchen, again in need of updating, leads directly into an adjacent family room which, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent and building regulations, have excellent scope to knock together, creating an open-plan kitchen/dining room, opening out onto the rear garden.
Upstairs, the staircase splits into two `wings`; the master bedroom with an adjacent bathroom to one end, the three remaining double bedrooms and the family bathroom to the other.
Outside, to the rear, the sizeable, mature rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect and extends to around 90ft in length. Laid to lawn, with a good size decked area and well stocked flower borders, it also enjoys views across Berkhamsted. To the front, the driveway provides a parking and turning area, and there is a single garage.
All in all, this much loved home is a truly superb opportunity for the next generation of owners to create their perfect residence, allowing the property to continue its track record as a very happy family home.
The property is located in a sought after residential road just off Bridgewater Road, around 0.7 mile from the town centre, and just half a mile from the 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.
