This beautiful home, skilfully converted from a former barn, is both unique and characterful, situated around 1.5 miles from the historic market town of Berkhamsted.
From the moment you enter the good size reception hall, with its beamed, vaulted ceiling, the magic of this enchanting home unfolds. With nooks and crannies, and characterful features throughout, its accommodation is also versatile, lending itself equally to a family, as it does those wishing to downsize.
The ground floor accommodation is both spacious and light, with every room boasting its own unique character; the cosy sitting room, for example, with its tranquil view of the rear garden, the elegant dining room, and the stylish kitchen/breakfast room, complete with bespoke hand-painted cupboards and polished granite worksurfaces. The good size study, or fourth bedroom, is located just off the reception hall and has a multitude of uses, while a shower room is also located adjacent to it.
But there can be little doubt as to the crowning glory of this stunning home: the 24ft drawing room, with glorious, vaulted ceiling, and a plethora of exposed beams. And with large, glazed, double doors to the rear garden, the �outside is brought inside`, perfect to enjoy a summers afternoon.
Upstairs, the three principal bedrooms are divided into two distinct �wings`, connected by a central galleried landing, spanning the drawing room below. The master bedroom, with its own en suite bathroom, can be found at one end, while the two other bedrooms are located at the opposite end, along with the family bathroom.
Outside, the property boasts a mature, beautifully maintained, and very private �cottage-style` garden to the rear. As you might expect, the attention to detail found inside, is equally prevalent outdoors; a manicured lawn, well-stocked flower borders, and a sizeable terrace, plus a picturesque summer house.
To the front, a gated driveway, circling a central flower bed, provides off road parking for a number of cars and leads to a detached double garage which features power and light.
The property is tucked-away along Pix Farm Lane, a winding country lane on the edge of Bourne End village, equidistant from both Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead, both of which can be found within less than two miles.
Berkhamsted is a sought after, pretty market town, highly desirable for commuters, and known for its independent High Street boutiques, medieval castle remains, and its historic private school. The larger town of Hemel Hempstead offers superb shopping, parks and recreational facilities, including Debenhams department store, indoor Snow Centre, and the impressive �XC` extreme sports centre.
Both towns offer mainline train stations, providing a regular and direct link to London Euston in around 30 minutes. Major road connections nearby include the M25 (J20) and the M1 (J8), together with the A41 dual carriageway which provides an excellent connection to Watford, Tring and Aylesbury.
The area also boasts fine walking and riding in the surrounding countryside, including the National Trust`s nearby 5,000 acre Ashridge Estate, and nearby golf courses include Ashridge, Berkhamsted, and The Grove.
