This elegant, beautifully presented townhouse is located in Berkhamsted's sought after Conservation Area, a short walk from the town and little more than half a mile from the train station.
Deceptively spacious and tastefully restored, the light filled accommodation is arranged over three floors and includes four good size double bedrooms.
This beautiful home combines a harmonious mix of old and new, with period features including fireplaces, sash windows and stripped wood doors.
On the ground floor, there is a sumptuous sitting room, complete with fireplace and, typical of its period, a lovely bay window.
However, without doubt, it is the stunning, capacious open-plan family room, kitchen and dining room that brings the biggest 'wow factor'. Bathed in natural sunlight, with its part glass roof and bifold doors which open onto the rear terrace, it provides a versatile living space, perfect for twenty-first century living. The family room has plenty of storage and stylish oak flooring.
The luxurious bespoke kitchen itself has attractive units, integrated appliances and a central island. A modern fitted cloakroom completes the downstairs.
On the first floor, the light and bright hallway leads to three of the bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a dual aspect, stripped wooden flooring and a period fireplace. The smart family bathroom boasts underfloor heating, a heated mirror and a skylight which is electronically operated and benefits from a rain sensor.
Up again, the fourth bedroom boasts views across Berkhamsted and benefits from ample storage in the eaves.
Externally, the rear garden is most attractive, with a good size terrace perfect for alfresco dining. Laid to lawn, it has mature, well stocked borders. To the far end of the garden, a pretty Victorian style brick outbuilding and potting shed can be found, both with electricity. Last but not least, there is a secure rear access.
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.
