Quintessential Aldbury cottage with garage and parking, nestled at the foot of Ashridge Woods.
This most delightful period cottage is located in an enviable position, right at the foot of the Ashridge Woods, in one of the county's most idyllic and sought after villages. Somewhat unusual for a property of its age, it also benefits from a garage and ample car parking.
Set back some 170ft from Stocks Road, Eucalyptus Cottage enjoys a picturesque setting, positioned at the end of this handsome terrace.
Following the long driveway up to the cottage, flanked by a pretty lavender path, the property can be accessed by the original front door or the side entrance.
The house is very well presented and has been sympathetically extended to offer spacious living areas, while retaining characterful features including exposed beams and log burners to the two reception rooms.
The sitting room is charming and located at the front of the cottage. The open-plan dining/family room, with its vaulted ceiling, has a warm and welcoming ambience, with French doors opening out to the attractive gardens. The adjacent kitchen is traditional in style, boasting an attractive breakfast bar, and cream units, complemented by a granite work top and a Belfast sink. From the kitchen, there is access into a utility room, which in turns provides access into a useful shower/cloakroom.
Upstairs, there are three good size cottage bedrooms, plus a modern bathroom. The bedrooms appreciate beautiful views of National Trust countryside or the pretty front garden.
Externally, the property includes a brick outbuilding, currently used as a home office, and there is also access to a single garage.
The gardens are most delightful, positioned on three sides of the cottage, with a variety of lawned areas and patios to sit and enjoy the wonderful ever changing, seasonal views. The borders are well stocked with mature plants and includes a summer house and shed which both have power and light.
The front garden is lawned, and features a Eucalyptus tree and mature hedging. There is ample parking and a garage.
Prospective purchasers may also wish to note that planning permission was granted in 2019 to create a new tandem garage to replace the existing garage (ref: 4/00820/19/FHA).

It is often used as a TV and film location because of its `chocolate box` appeal, with a duck pond, village shop, Church and two pub/restaurants located in or near the village centre. It boasts an excellent Church of England Primary School, which feeds into the highly regarded Tring Secondary School or, for those seeking private educational facilities, there is a plethora of choice, including the renowned Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, and Berkhamsted School.
The vibrant and thriving village community is another reason this village is so popular and residents seldom leave, instead upsizing or downsizing within. Nestling at the foot of the beautiful National Trust Ashridge Estate, the area is also a haven for golfers, horse riders and walkers.
And all only about 40 minutes away from London by train, with Tring station just over a mile away. The A41, M1 and M25 are all close by too. For shoppers, Berkhamsted offers an array of independent shops, or Milton Keynes, Watford and St Albans are slightly further afield.
