This handsome, detached, five bedroom property is located in a highly prestigious location, just off Shootersway, little more than a mile from the town centre.

Throughout this substantial home, a wonderful sense of space and light is to be found. As you enter through the front door, the wide entrance porch creates the perfect first impression, before you are lead into the impressive inner hallway. Downstairs, the generously proportioned sitting room and dining room are comfortable and elegant, and the third reception room makes the perfect study or TV room. And, while three reception rooms is undoubtedly to be expected, the magnificent 22ft conservatory which spans the rear of the house is perhaps an unexpected surprise.

Last but not least, the heart of the house comes in the form of the 26ft kitchen/breakfast room, and there is a useful utility room immediately to the side.

Upstairs, there are five, generous bedrooms; the master bedroom has both an en suite dressing room and bathroom, and the guest bedroom also has an en suite shower room. Along with two further double bedrooms and fifth single bedroom, there is also a good size family bathroom.

Outside, to the front, a sweeping gravel driveway provides plenty of parking area, and leads to a double garage. To the rear, the flat, mature, 120ft rear garden enjoys a high degree of privacy. In all, the plot amounts to almost a third of an acre.

The property is situated in a highly sought after residential location, around 1.2 miles from the town centre.

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, Mentmore 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 Laura Ashley. 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.
