THE PROPERTY
Located in an exclusive cul-de-sac of just eight homes, originally built by Berkeley Homes, this attractive property enjoys a little-known location that is set away from the hustle and bustle of the town, yet only a ten minute walk from the High Street, and within a mile of the station.

Inside this beautifully presented split-level home, the versatile accommodation is cleverly arranged over a series of four �half-levels`, perfect for every age group in the family; the layout that creates a sense of space and openness that is so ideal for younger children, also provides welcome privacy as they get older.

There are a total of three, good size reception rooms, plus a cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room, and separate utility room. The sitting room and kitchen both feature glazed doors out to the glorious, southerly-facing rear garden, perfect for entertaining or al fresco dining on a summer`s evening.

The upper floors boast five bedrooms, three of which have fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom features a modern en suite bathroom, and the remaining bedrooms are served by an equally smart family bathroom.

Outside, the property enjoys a mature plot. The southerly-facing rear garden, around 50ft x 50ft in size, has been lovingly maintained and boasts a high degree of privacy. To the front, the private driveway provides parking for two cars and leads to a double garage, and there are also two communal visitors` car parking spaces available nearby.


LOCATION
The property is situated in one of Berkhamsted`s premier locations, only around a ten minute walk from the High Street.

Berkhamsted itself 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.
