Enjoying an enviable position, overlooking Hawridge Common, this gorgeous three bedroom period property has been much improved by the present owners, and is beautifully presented in classic tones.
Situated in a stunning, sought after location, with numerous country walks from the front door, and a village school and cosy pub all just a stone`s throw away, the property really does provide the best of both worlds; an opportunity to live the `idyllic countryside dream`, while being only a short drive away from the buzz of nearby market towns when you want it.
Sympathetically renovated, retaining many of its original beams, the light and bright, open-plan accommodation is conducive to todays family living. On entering, turning right leads you to a good size dining room, in turn flowing into a lovely, contemporary kitchen/family room, and ultimately through to a study/garden room, complete with large, glazed double doors out into the rear garden. The handsome sitting room, meanwhile, can be found to the left, boasting a magnificent inglenook fireplace, complete with wood burning stove.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two of which feature wonderful, far-reaching views over the local countryside. The family bathroom is quite stunning too - a glorious blend of traditional with contemporary - decorated in restful, muted tones, and with a freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle.
Externally, the pretty enclosed rear garden has a patio area and lawn, whilst to the front the garden is pebbled, and with a hedge providing natural screening and privacy. Finally, and yet another benefit, the cottage also boasts off road parking to the front.
The pretty hamlet of Hawridge is centrally situated for easy access to a range of glorious nearby villages and market towns.
Berkhamsted, Tring, Wendover and Chesham are all to be found within a 10-15 minute drive, so central London is remarkably accessible through your choice of services to either Euston or Marylebone, or by using the underground service at Chesham. Alternatively, for those wishing to access the motorway network, the M40, M1 and M25 are all convenient too.
Nearby shopping facilities at nearby market towns are varied and include a selection of independent boutiques, plus larger chains such as Waitrose and M&S Simply Food.
Buckinghamshire`s County Town, Aylesbury, is around 10 miles and boasts a multiplex cinema, shopping centres, and a recently completed �42 million theatre.
The area boasts some excellent educational facilities, including Chesham Grammar School. For those wishing to use the independent sector, Chesham Preparatory School, Tring Park School for the Performing Arts and Berkhamsted School all have superb reputations.
