This sizeable, well maintained family home is available for sale for the first time in over forty years, and now presents a wonderful opportunity for the next family to enjoy it themselves for years to come.

Constructed in the early 1970s, the property boasts much of what was good about architectural design of the era; large, picture windows and generously proportioned rooms are to be found here, along with a gorgeous, mature rear garden of around 85ft in length.

Inside, the large, welcoming hallway leads through to two separate reception rooms, both of which have an open, light and airy feel, thanks to their picture windows. The sitting room is located to the front of the house and enjoys a southerly aspect, while the dining room and kitchen both enjoy views of the lovely, flat rear garden. A useful utility room is to be found just off the kitchen, which also provides access into the garage. Last but not least, the ground floor also benefits from a cloakroom.

Upstairs, there is an impressive, wide landing, along with four double bedrooms, two of which enjoy stunning, far-reaching views across the town. There is also a family bathroom.

Outside, the rear garden is sizeable, measuring approximately 85ft. Laid to lawn and well stocked with shrubs, perennials and trees, it has clearly been lovingly maintained for the past forty years.

A good sized driveway is located to the front of the house which, together with the garage, provides parking for a number of cars.

The property has excellent potential for extension, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. A truly superb opportunity for the next owners to create their perfect residence, and let the property continue its track record as a very happy family home.

The property is located in a sought after residential road, less than a mile from the town centre, and just 0.7 mile from the 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, Mentmore 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.
