OPEN-PLAN LIVING/DINING/KITCHEN * TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS * BATHROOM * SHARE OF FREEHOLD * NO UPPER CHAIN * POTENTIAL FOR FUTURE EXTENSION INTO THE LOFT AREA (SUBJECT TO PLANNING & SATISFYING ANY COVENANTS CONTAINED WITHIN THE LEASE)
Privately situated in a tucked-away courtyard off Berkhamsted High Street, just moments away from the town`s train station, shops, restaurants and bars, this top floor apartment has been newly created to provide a fabulous two bedroom home.
Beautifully specified throughout, the property features `Hive`-controlled gas central heating, double glazing, a stylish fitted kitchen with white quartz worksurfaces and `Bosch` appliances, and a high-quality bathroom, complete with Porcelanosa tiling. Decorated in restful, muted tones, the generous accommodation includes two double bedrooms and is particularly light and bright.
The property also has the potential to extend into the loft area above, if desired, subject to planning, and subject to satisfying any covenants contained within the lease that apply to such an extension.
Ideally located just yards away from Berkhamsted`s many amenities, and a short walk to the station.
Last, but by no means least, the property is sold with a share of the Freehold.
The property has the benefit of use of a car parking space in a nearby car park, located on Cowper Road, and available on an annually renewable licence from Jelmac Properties. The seller will pay for the first year`s licence in advance on behalf of the successful purchaser, and it is thereafter the responsibility of the purchaser to renew as appropriate, and pay any licence fees due.
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 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.
