Elegant Edwardian townhouse, centrally located and with excellent potential.
Handsome and imposing, this elegant Edwardian townhouse is ideally located in the Conservation Area, just a short walk from the town centre, schools and train station. But perhaps more unusual, at least for a property of its type and age, a garage and driveway is included too.
This substantial home is available for sale for the first time in over thirty years and now offers a wonderful opportunity for the next family to remodel and modernise, and enjoy its many qualities for years to come.
The accommodation is substantial and arranged over three principal floors, plus a cellar.
With generously proportioned rooms and many beautiful original features, from the moment you enter the capacious entrance hall, there is plenty to enjoy. The original patterned encaustic tiled floor, typical of its era, displays the gentle undulations that can only be created by a century of people passing through, while the rich patina seen on the impressive staircase tells a similar story.
There are two principal rooms: a beautiful drawing room with an impressive bay window and original open marble fireplace, and a large dining room with fireplace and French doors that open out to the rear.
Further along the hall is a larder and the kitchen/breakfast room while, down a floor to the basement level, the cellar offers excellent storage or could be used a workshop.
Up the beautiful carved staircase to the first floor, to one end of the landing are two original storage cupboards, a bathroom and separate wc. To the other end, two large bedrooms and a single bedroom.
Up again to the second floor, there is a shower room and a further three bedrooms - again, two of which are very substantial.
With a staircase already in position for access, the enormous attic has superb potential to convert into additional accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.
Outside, the rear garden is accessed along a pathway to the rear. The garden itself is secluded with mature shrubs and trees, including a Weeping Ash tree.
To the front is a single garage and driveway parking.

This impressive family home provides considerable scope to remodel and modernise.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.
