ENTRANCE HALL * SITTING ROOM * KITCHEN * CELLAR ROOM/DEN/DINING ROOM * BATHROOM * TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS, PLUS A SMALL SINGLE BEDROOM * PRETTY REAR GARDEN WITH OUTBUILDING


THE PROPERTY
A pleasant change from walking straight into the sitting room, this pretty cottage has the benefit of an entrance hall. And the surprises continue, in the form of a cellar room – an ideal study, `den` or dining room.

Throughout, the delights continue. Stripped pine doors and engineered oak flooring, sash windows, original stripped pine shutters and a real fire in the sitting room are all to be found in this lovely home. The fitted kitchen, complete with `Neff` appliances and a breakfast bar, is located to the rear of the house, beyond which is a smart, contemporary bathroom, sporting a double shower over the bath and with underfloor heating.

Upstairs, the two main bedrooms are double rooms. The front bedroom has a period style fireplace and original built in cupboard, while the room to the rear is fitted with wall to wall wardrobes. The door of the third bedroom is narrower than average, adding to the quaintness of the cottage. `Small but perfectly formed`, it perhaps is more suitable as a dressing room, study or nursery than a single bedroom.

Outside, to the rear, the good sized garden boasts some lovely mature trees and shrubs and the original old wash house as a useful outbuilding.

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.
