`The Lawns`, this stunning, individually designed, detached family home, is currently under construction by renowned local development company, E J Waterhouse & Sons, and is nearing completion.
Boasting generous accommodation including four double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, the property also features a south-facing rear garden, together with today`s `must have` for the modern family: a large, open-plan kitchen/family/dining room. Beautifully finished, the luxurious specification includes contemporary, walnut finish internal doors, ceramic tiling by `Porcelanosa`, a fitted kitchen with `Siemens` integrated appliances, underfloor heating, and a good size garage/workshop with electrically-operated garage door.
This exclusive development of just three detached homes, is set on the upper part of Ashlyns Road, a self-contained, small residential loop road on the south-western side of the Berkhamsted vale. This part of the town is characterised by detached houses, generally dating from the early 1900s. The location enables easy access to the town, shops, local schools and railway station, with the centre of town only just over half a mile away.
The design and layout of the development pay homage to the individual design and characteristics of the local vernacular. The architect, Frank Porthouse of the Project Design Studio, has designed each property to maximise its location, whilst reflecting the Berkhamsted Edwardian characteristics prevalent locally.
Each property on this prestigious development, has been planned and orientated to make the most of the fabulous elevated location, whilst not compromising the surrounding character. The design accords with and complements the surroundings to create a rarely available, exclusive new development.
The purchaser of this wonderful property will be buying into one of the only architect-designed, newly built, detached family houses in this area. Built by E J Waterhouse & Sons, a local builder established over 100 years ago, with an unrivalled local reputation for quality construction. This property offers a unique opportunity to purchase a detached family home within walking distance of the town centre, in a fabulous location, with views across the town.
Finally, for the ultimate peace-of-mind, the property benefits from the reassurance of having a 10 year insurance-backed new home warranty.
With good schools, a fabulous selection of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, and open countryside on the doorstep, Berkhamsted is a highly desirable market town, which combines an excellent location and a sense of community spirit.
Berkhamsted itself is steeped in history, with the ruins of Berkhamsted Castle dating back to William The Conqueror. One of the early Norman Castes, it controlled the northern approach to London and the ruins remain for visitors today. The town was issued its Royal Charter in 1156 by Henry II.
The Grand Union Canal runs through the town, providing opportunities for scenic walks. Adjoining the canal and just behind the High Street, Canal Fields with its picnic and play areas, has achieved the Green Flag award, the standard for parks and open spaces, six times since 2007.
The town centre, shops and restaurants are a short walk from the property. Local food shops include Waitrose, Eastwoods award-winning butchers, and Simmons bakers, while there are also many independent boutique clothing outlets. Besides the various high end restaurant chains here, the town also boasts a number of independent dining options, including Porters and The Gatsby. There is a thriving Saturday street market, also regular farmers and antique markets.
Local facilities include: The Art Deco Rex Cinema, Berkhamsted Lawn Tennis, Squash and Rackets Club, Sportspace with gym and swimming pool, and Berkhamsted and Ashridge Golf Clubs. Berkhamsted is also blessed with beautiful surrounding countryside, with quaint villages, Ashridge National Trust Estate, and the canal, all providing for a ramblers paradise.
Located on the West Coast Mainline, Berkhamsted station provides frequent rail services to London Euston, with journey times from 31 minutes; making commuting and nights out in London simple. The property is also located in the right side of the valley for the A41, which provides direct access to the M25 at the recently widened Junction 20. The M1 at Hemel Hempstead, London Heathrow and Luton airports are also easily accessible.
