THE PROPERTY
This sizeable, well maintained, detached property occupies a magnificent plot, tucked away, towards the top of Cross Oak Road.

Dating to the 1960s, the property remains stylishly and defiantly ‘of the period`. Individually designed, it boasts much of what was good about architectural design of the era; large, picture windows and generously proportioned rooms, for example, along with a sizeable, mature plot of approximately a third of an acre.

Inside, the generous ground floor accommodation already includes a wide, welcoming hallway, a good size kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom and no less than four, separate reception rooms. Upstairs, four generous bedrooms can be found; the master bedroom features an en suite shower room, while the remaining bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.

However, it is the considerable scope for extension, remodelling, or redevelopment that makes this such a rarity in Berkhamsted today; an exciting opportunity indeed, to create the perfect home to ones own specifications, located in one the town`s most coveted locations, and only a mile from Berkhamsted station.

Outside, the glorious gardens are huge by modern standards. The plot, extending to approximately 0.3 acre, is tucked away at the end of a long, private, gravel driveway, some 80 yards in length. Laid to lawn and well stocked with shrubs, perennials and trees, the mature gardens offer a high degree of privacy, and have clearly been lovingly maintained for the past six decades. Last but not least, a useful ‘home office` building provides ideal space for those looking to work from home, or a purpose built `home gym` for those looking to keep fit.

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.
