Quiet, coveted road, 1920's charm and 21st Century attributes.
Newly refurbished and extended by EJ Waterhouse to the style and quality this highly respected local builder is known for, this large, beautiful, detached property offers everything today's discerning buyer is looking for.
Keeping wonderful original features like the oak bannisters and doors, the layout has been reconfigured to offer amazing family living space.
The wide, welcoming reception hall, with large coats cupboard and cloakroom, gives way to a sitting room to the front, then another reception room, complete with log burner, which opens into the kitchen/breakfast/dining room.
This house has wow factors at every turn, but undoubtedly the greatest feature is this; it spans the entire width of the rear of the property, with porcelain tiled flooring and underfloor heating. Awesome is the adjective that comes to mind.
Large bi fold doors plus patio doors open out onto the good sized enclosed rear garden, and the kitchen itself is a stunning shade of cobalt blue, with every appliance you would expect of a house of this standard, including a state of the art concealed extractor fan, hot tap and coffee machine. The quality of the units and worktop also extends into the utility room, complete with washing machine and dryer.
Upstairs, the surprises continue, with spacious, light, airy bedrooms and bedroom two boasting its own en suite, storage and built in wardrobes.
The master suite is breath-taking, with a spacious, stylish dressing area and amazing en suite where the oval freestanding bath is most definitely a feature, along with the huge walk in 'wet room' style shower.
Take the stairs to the top floor and you will find another bedroom with plenty of storage and a bathroom with separate shower.
Add to this the garage, driveway parking, undoubted kerb appeal and prestigious, sought after location and this house really does have it all.
All this, plus the highly respected EJ Waterhouse seal of quality.
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.
