Situated in a most impressive Georgian style residence, this spacious two double bedroom, first floor apartment, is just one of four in Raglan House.
In a tucked away cul-de-sac location, this prestigious apartment has so much to offer. With well maintained communal areas, the feeling of elegance and distinction is evident. The accommodation, although in need of some updating, is in very good decorative order but with scope for remodelling. The wide and welcoming hallway is large enough to even be used as an office area, while the sizeable sitting room has a bright and light ambiance, and leads into a separate dining area and kitchen, together with a very useful additional reception room/study or third bedroom.
The two principal double bedrooms are located at the north `wing` of the apartment. Both have fitted wardrobes and overlook the beautiful communal rear gardens. The apartment also boasts a family bathroom, separate shower room and storage cupboards.
Outside, there are communal gardens to the front and rear. A share of a double garage is also included which, at 31ft long, is large enough to park two cars in tandem. There is also a shared driveway with parking for two or more cars and external storage cupboard.
The property is within easy walking distance of the town centre and railway station. It also benefits from having no upper chain.
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.
