THE PROPERTY
Delightful, charming and characterful, this detached two bedroom cottage is centrally located, just a few minutes` walk from the station and town centre, and ideal for commuters.

Quirky and unique, with accommodation arranged over three floors. On the ground floor, the good size entrance hall leads to both the bathroom, and a lovely, light and bright sitting room, complete with log burner for those chilly evenings. Down the stairs to the lower ground floor, a spacious dining room can be found, along with kitchen/breakfast room and utility room, which also has access out into the rear garden.

To the first floor, there are two large double bedrooms, both of which are bathed in light from dual aspect windows, and one enjoying views and sounds of the Grand Union Canal.

Outside, there is a pretty, private courtyard garden, and also a cosy, elevated decking area – perfect to sit out and enjoy the views. Last but not least, a brick built outbuilding provides a very useful storage area, or could alternatively be used as a workshop, studio or hobbies room.


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.
