THE PROPERTY
Charming and characterful, this beautifully presented period cottage exudes quality and style.

Tastefully decorated throughout in muted tones and feature walls, the accommodation includes a delightful sitting room with a modern gas fire and a separate dining room, both with feature brick fireplaces and wooden latched doors. The kitchen, meanwhile, is luxuriously fitted with contemporary high quality shaker painted kitchen units and granite worktops by ICE Interiors, which also includes a built in fridge freezer and the following Neff appliances – `slide and hide` oven, a separate compact combination oven with microwave, an integrated dishwasher, a gas hob and a stainless steel chimney hood.

Completing the ground floor accommodation, the bathroom is located at the rear of the house and, like the rest of the house, does not disappoint. Spacious and luxurious, it also benefits from a separate shower.

Upstairs, the sizeable landing leads to a beautifully decorated master bedroom, the guest bedroom and the third bedroom/dressing room have built in wardrobes/storage including the gas fired boiler and airing cupboard.

Right at the bottom of this lovely home, tucked-away on the lower ground floor, the useful cellar room is an added bonus; with its original Victorian feature fireplace, it is currently used as an office but would also be ideal as a playroom.

Outside the pretty, private rear garden is contemporary in style. Mainly laid to lawn but with an attractive slate path and sunny raised patio area to the rear, to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. But, without doubt, the double garage, complete with electrically operated door, is a rarity for this type of property and also offers good storage in the eaves above.

There is scope for further improvement, if desired, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.


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.
