THE PROPERTY
Located in Brackenhill, perhaps one of Berkhamsted`s best kept secrets, this handsome, five bedroom residence enjoys some of the finest countryside views available anywhere in Berkhamsted.

Situated at the end of the exclusive cul-de-sac of just six homes, and boasting a mature plot of approximately a third of an acre, this handsome home offers substantial accommodation and garaging totalling in excess of 2,600 sq ft, including five bedrooms and four reception rooms, and affords a luxurious level of privacy.

Inside, the spacious ground floor includes no less than four reception rooms. The generous sitting room features an open fireplace and, together with the adjoining dining room, enjoys access directly out to the rear garden through patio doors. To the other side of the house, the tucked away study provides perfect peace and quiet, be that for homework, or just simply taking a break from today`s hectic family life.

However, the heart of this lovely home is most definitely the kitchen. Comprehensively fitted and with stylish granite worktops, it leads seemlessly into the generous, adjoining breakfast room, and a useful utility room can also be found just off it. To the rear, and still open-plan to the kitchen, a breathtaking, oak-framed family room welcomes you, complete with magnificent, beamed, valuted ceiling and gorgeous exterior views.

Upstairs, there are a total of five bedrooms, off the large landing. Both the master and guest bedrooms feature en suite bath/shower rooms, while the remaining three bedrooms are served by a good size family bathroom.

Outside, the mature, gated plot totals around 0.3 acre and affords a high degree of privacy. A long, sweeping driveway provides parking for numerous cars, while the double garage provides further parking or welcome storage. The attractive gardens, while certainly large enough for most requirements, are also not so large as to be onerous. Laid to lawn, with patios and established hedgerows and trees, they all help create a picture-perfect setting for this prestigious home. All this, while backing on to some of Hertfordshire`s finest Greenbelt countryside, with glorious views over an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a more peaceful setting for the next local family, one could not imagine.

LOCATION
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 M&S Simply Food. 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.
