ENTRANCE HALL * LIVING ROOM * KITCHEN * TWO BEDROOMS * BATHROOM * GARAGE * SHARE OF FREEHOLD
This spacious and well presented apartment is situated in Bay Court; a sought-after, town centre development, a few minutes` walk from Berkhamsted`s shops, restaurants, bars and train station. In need of some refurbishment, the property presents an excellent opportunity for the next owner to refurbish or remodel to their own particular specification.
This second-floor apartment boasts generous accommodation. There are two double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, a spacious living room, a kitchen and bathroom. The entire apartment is particularly light and airy, thanks to its large picture windows and elevated views.
Outside, unusual for an apartment - indeed even more so in the town centre - there is a garage.
Finally, not only does the property come with a long lease of 999 years (from 2008), it is sold with a share of the Freehold too.
The property is situated in one of Berkhamsted`s premier locations, a few minutes` walk from the High Street.
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, 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.
