THE PROPERTY
Beautifully appointed in every respect, this handsome family home combines capacious, open plan entertaining areas, generously proportioned bedrooms, and the very latest technology and specification. And with sumptuous space of around 4,000 sq ft (excluding the garage), arranged over four floors, the luxurious layout is also very well thought through.

From the sizeable entrance hall and the four, large reception rooms, right up to the six double bedrooms, the attention to detail throughout this beautiful home is second-to-none; and none more so than the heart of the home: the kitchen. At a breathtaking 41ft, and with full-width aluminium sliding folding doors out to a glorious sun terrace, this decadently spacious room is perfect for entertaining, and is fully equipped with a stunning, contemporary range of units by Porcelanosa, under seamless Krion work surfaces. A modern range of Siemens appliances is included, comprising a state-of-the-art, remote controlled central recirculator, two separate ovens (one with Wi-Fi), a steam oven, plate warmer, induction hob, dishwasher, full-height fridge, full-height freezer, Quooker fusion tap, and wine cooler.

Upstairs, there are a total of six double bedrooms. The beautiful master bedroom suite has a dressing room and a luxurious en suite shower room, while three further bathrooms or shower rooms – all with Porcelanosa fittings and tiles – serve the remaining bedrooms, two of which also have walk-in wardrobes.

Internal features include underfloor heating, a contemporary Stovax Studio 2 inset wood burning stove to the sitting room, and Rako intelligent mood lighting. Walnut internal doors are complemented by similar fully glazed doors to the ground floor hallway and by the staircase balustrade, finished in matching walnut and glass.

Outside, with a total plot of approximately a quarter of an acre, the rear garden is unusually large for a property so close to the town centre. Laid to lawn, and with a distant view across the town, it affords a high degree of privacy and also features two separate sun terraces, finished in grey/black Brazilian slate and stainless steel balustrading with glazed infills. To the rear, a large, mature, planted and stocked fish pond with water feature can be found, securely fenced for any younger residents or visitors.

To the front, the electrically gated driveway features a video entryphone system and remote controlled access, and provides plenty of room for parking numerous cars. Bins are kept out of sight, thanks to the thoughtful addition of a dedicated storage cupboard and, last but not least, a good size garage/workshop, complete with electrically operated door, offers secure parking or storage.

The property comes with a insurance-backed 10 year new homes warranty from BLP.

LOCATION
The property is located towards the top of Chesham Road, a convenient walk from both Berkhamsted town centre, with its restaurants, bars and boutiques, local schools and the mainline train station.

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.
