Chain free, this tranquil oasis has the buzz of Berkhamsted town centre only a few steps away.
This detached property enjoys a superb location on the High Street, just minutes' walk from all the many town centre facilities and offers accommodation that is both versatile and thoughtfully laid out.
The good-sized accommodation on the ground floor has unusually high ceilings. There is a most pleasant sitting room with open fireplace fitted with coal-style gas fire and a formally laid out dining room. Of especial note is the kitchen fitted in classic modern style with a wide range of wall and base units.
The master bedroom has extensive fitted wardrobes and immediately adjacent is the principal bathroom/wetroom which is fitted to a particularly high standard in smart contemporary style.
Another room is currently laid out as a study fully fitted with specialist drawers and cabinets but could if required be converted to form a second ground floor bedroom.
Finally on the ground floor is a stylish double-glazed conservatory, accessed from the sitting room or the kitchen, which not only overlooks the glorious gardens but, with bi-fold doors, can open right out to them.
Upstairs are two further rooms, one bedroom with en-suite shower and the other with the potential of use as a further bedroom or in whatever way best meets the needs of the occupier.
Outside the rear garden enjoys a southerly aspect and, especially in its middle section, is nothing short of an oasis of unexpected tranquillity. An appealing water feature a wide selection of mature shrubs and planted 'wild garden' all designed to encourage wildlife contribute to a very attractive feature.
To the front a substantial driveway provides parking for several cars. There is the potential to remodel or extend, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.
This property is being sold with no upper chain.
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. Milton Keynes and London are both easily accessible too.
