££1,850,000 Guide

Town centre, canal side, and totally unique.

Under Offer

There is no other house like this four double bedroom, five bathroom detached property anywhere in Berkhamsted.

It is, quite simply, unique – and, for anyone looking for a large town centre property, complete with two garages, the location is undeniably superb, as not only is it within a stone's throw of the High Street, it also backs onto the canal, with uninterrupted views.

Specially designed and built for the current owner, the property is full of character, built with centuries-old bricks and boasting centuries-old solid wooden flooring, reclaimed from an old warehouse.

However, that’s where the period features end, for everything else about the house is modern and contemporary, designed for today's way of living.

A magnificent split level, open-plan L-shaped kitchen/dining/sitting room dominates the ground floor. It provides access to a large cobbled terrace, which edges a part of the canal where no one is allowed to moor – so all you see are the passing ducks and barges or those which are moored on the opposite bank. Furthermore, there are no passers-by as there is no tow path on this side either.

The magnificent kitchen boasts granite work surfaces and a large island, and virtually two of everything; two dishwashers, two fridge freezers, two ovens, two plate warmers and two sinks, as well as a combination microwave, coffee maker, induction hob, extractor fan and plenty of storage.

Bedroom-wise, on the first floor, you will find two of the double bedrooms, each with their own superb bathrooms. The principle, to the rear, has a balcony overlooking the canal and the other has a balcony to the front, as well as access to the rear roof terrace which overlooks the canal. The large space in between both bedrooms, presently used as a gym/family room, is most versatile and could be utilised to suit individual needs.

Meanwhile, the top floor is ideal for guests or teenagers wanting their own space. A galleried landing separates two more double bedrooms, each with bathrooms, and one with a separate dressing room as well.

A second staircase – a beautiful black wrought iron spiral – provides another access down to the living area, as well as a downstairs shower room with wc, a utility room and internal access to the second garage. Although at the front of the house, the utility room's external door acts, in effect, as the 'back door' to the property – ideal for muddy boots, children and dogs.

This totally unique house really does need to be viewed to fully appreciate the flow of the layout and the many features which make this both a wonderful family home and a superb place for entertaining - and what's more, there is no upper chain.
