THE PROPERTY
Tucked away in a picturesque setting, accessed through an electrically operated gated entrance, is Waterside; and, as the name suggests, this stylish and unique three bedroom house, backs onto the River Bulbourne.

Located just minutes from major road networks such as the A41, the M25, and less than 1.5 miles from Hemel Hempstead main line train station, historic Berkhamsted can also be found within around 2 miles.

Delightful and beautifully presented, the accommodation is both spacious and versatile. The pretty oak wood frame entrance porch clad in larch with its patterned floor tiles sets the tone for what lies inside. The spacious open-plan sitting/dining room and kitchen area has been refurbished to a high standard to include period-style shutters to the windows, and a spacious and modern kitchen with beautiful long oak work surfaces.

On the ground floor, located at one end of the property, there is a double bedroom with a contemporary en suite bathroom and with a separate shower, ideal perhaps for an elderly relative, or as a sumptuous master bedroom. To the opposite end, a delightful second reception room can be found, complete with patio doors that lead out to a raised, private decked area overlooking the river.

Upstairs, cleverly designed, you will find a sizeable landing, currently providing office space and with ample storage. There are also two double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and with plenty of storage areas in the eaves.

This house is ideal for those who love entertaining. The enchanting rear garden is tiered, with pebbles leading down to the water side, where one can sit and enjoy the river with its water wheel and resident ducks. A delightful patio area, ideal for barbecues, can be found to the side of the property.

To the front, there is a sizeable garden and ample driveway parking.

A truly delightful home, in a picturesque yet convenient location.


LOCATION
The pretty village of Bourne End is situated on the ancient Roman Akeman Street, equidistant from both Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead, both of which can be found within around two miles.

Berkhamsted is a sought after, pretty market town, highly desirable for commuters, and known for its independent High Street boutiques, medieval castle remains, and its historic private school. The larger town of Hemel Hempstead offers superb shopping, parks and recreational facilities, including Debenhams department store, indoor Snow Centre, and the impressive ‘XC` extreme sports centre.

Both towns offer mainline train stations, providing a regular and direct link to London Euston in around 30 minutes. Major road connections nearby include the M25 (J20) and the M1 (J8), together with the A41 dual carriageway which provides an excellent connection to Watford, Tring and Aylesbury.

The area also boasts fine walking and riding in the surrounding countryside, including the National Trust`s nearby 5,000 acre Ashridge Estate, and nearby golf courses include Ashridge, Berkhamsted, and The Grove.
