This beautiful, Grade II listed, four bedroom detached period property, is full of charm and is set in the picturesque village of Wigginton, just 1.5 miles from Tring town centre.
Inside, period features, fireplaces and stripped floors are to be found throughout this gorgeous home, together with light and spacious living accommodation. The entrance hall, with its quarry tiled floor and hanging space for coats, leads through to the first of three lovely reception rooms, a sitting room, which features exposed beams and a wood burning stove. A spacious, dual aspect drawing room, complete with open inglenook fireplace, is the second of the three reception rooms, while the third, currently used as a music room, enjoys double doors out to the rear garden.
The kitchen, befittingly ‘country cottage` in style, features hardwood worksurfaces and a Belfast sink, and the ground floor accommodation also includes a useful store room and cloakroom. Last but not least, bedroom four, also located on the ground floor, is a versatile room which could just as easily be used as a further reception room, if preferred.
To the first floor, a spacious landing leads to a good size master bedroom, complete with exposed beams and stripped wooden floor, two further double bedrooms, and a luxurious, period-style family bathroom.
Outside, to the rear, a lovely country garden is to be found; lawned and secluded, a haven of tranquillity. To the side, a driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles, leading to a large, detached garage/workshop. The other side features a further garden area, including mature trees, shrubs and borders while, to the front, a pretty courtyard has ample space for pots and a small table and chairs.
The pretty village of Wigginton is located little more than a mile from Tring, on the edge of the Chiltern Hills. Village facilities include a pre-school, St Bartholomew`s C-of-E Primary School, a pub and restaurant.
Nearby Tring is a pretty market town, mentioned in 1086 in the Doomsday book. The town offers a wide range of recreational facilities, including a branch of the Natural History Museum, the Grand Union Canal, Pendley Court Theatre, and various sporting activities. Local shopping facilities are also varied and include a selection of independent boutiques, plus larger chains such as Tesco and M&S Simply Food. There are also a number of restaurants and cafes, including Costa and Prezzo.
Buckinghamshire`s County Town, Aylesbury, is around 9 miles and boasts a multiplex cinema, shopping centres, and a recently completed £42 million theatre.
The area boasts excellent educational facilities, including Tring School. For those wishing to use the independent sector, Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, Berkhamsted School, and Chesham Preparatory School all have superb reputations.
There are regular London train links via Tring Station and Berkhamsted Station (London Euston from around 30 minutes), and Wendover Station (London Marylebone from around 50 minutes). The A41 can be joined approximately 1 mile away and provides a dual-carriageway link direct to the M25 (J20).
