THE PROPERTY
Offered to the market for the first time in over 40 years and situated near a great choice of excellent schools, including Greenway School, this handsome family home is now available for the next generation to acquire and enjoy.

Retaining so many wonderful original features of the period, the property has a delightfully warm and welcoming ambience about it, while the plentiful windows let the sun pour in.

Deceptively spacious, this lovely home is also much larger than it initially appears, with accommodation featuring no less than five bedrooms – all doubles. Downstairs too, is well proportioned, with two separate reception rooms, one of which has the most beautiful bay window, the other with French doors out into the gardens.

To the rear, the large kitchen/breakfast room has the potential to enlarge further, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission, perhaps incorporating the utility room and store room. Finally, there is also an unexpectedly large downstairs cloakroom.

Outside, the mature, enclosed rear garden is also more generous than many and, if the separate garage is not needed, would create even more space for children to play.

Last but not least, the property is offered for sale with no upper chain.

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.
