This wonderful, period cottage is located just a stone`s throw from local shops, schools, the canal and country walks.

Deceptively spacious and very well presented, the property has been enhanced by the present vendors to create versatile accommodation. Downstairs, the light and bright, open-plan living room has a characterful, exposed brick open fire place, creating a welcoming and warm ambiance. The fitted kitchen has access out to the rear, and has potential to be extended (subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission).

Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, a sizeable family bathroom, and an `added bonus`: a lovely single bedroom/nursery/study.

Outside, there is shared access to a pretty, private rear garden area, and there is also a useful outbuilding store.

Northchurch is a popular residential area located approximately a mile and a half from Berkhamsted town centre and two miles from the train station. Although the main shops are in Berkhamsted, Northchurch is also well catered for. There is a well stocked Tesco Express and Post Office around two hundred yards from the property, and there is a fish and chip shop, bakery and coffee shop also nearby.

Nearby Berkhamsted 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 WH Smith. 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.
