This handsome, detached, five bedroom home enjoys an exclusive location just off Gravel Path, only ten minutes` walk from town centre, and less than a mile from the station.
The accommodation is generous and beautifully presented, perfect for family life, and evident from the moment you enter the property; the wide and welcoming entrance hall, for example, spacious and light, features a double-height ceiling and first floor galleried landing. The ground floor living space comprises no less than three, large reception rooms, together with a sizeable, open-plan kitchen/dining room, complete with eye-catching white granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. A useful utility room can be found immediately off the kitchen and, last but not least, the ground floor also has a good size cloakroom.
Upstairs, there are five bedrooms, all of which are double rooms. The master bedroom features a dressing room and an en suite bath/shower room, and two other bedrooms also have their own en suite shower rooms. The remaining bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.
Outside, the property enjoys a tangible sense of space while, at the same time - thanks to its gated entrance and high front hedges - a feeling of privacy and seclusion. The �sun-trap` rear garden boasts a south-westerly aspect. Lawned, and with a large patio and full-width pergola, it is equally well suited for younger children to play in, as it could be for hosting a gathering of family and friends for a summer barbeque.
To the front, the electrically operated, remote controlled gate provides a high degree of security and privacy, and there is an entryphone system for visitors. There is ample parking for the largest of families, thanks to both the driveway and double garage, which also has an electrically operated door.
Berkhamsted 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, M&S Simply Food 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.
