Beautiful blend of period charm and contemporary living.
This charming, double-fronted cottage enjoys an enviable position in the heart of this desirable village, just a short walk from the local school, shop and country pubs, and with Berkhamsted only a five minute drive away.
Full of character and charm, right from the start, with its attractive frontage, including a picket fence and canopy porch. There are many lovely period features inside, including leaded light windows dressed with traditional shutters, latch doors and oak flooring.
Inside, the property has two reception rooms; one currently used as a study, the other a sitting room. Both rooms feature either a log burning stove or an open fireplace, perfect for cosy winter nights.
The kitchen/dining room is a good size, spanning the full width of the cottage. The kitchen is well appointed, with a newly laid tiled floor, beech worktop and shaker-style units. There is also a newly fitted cloakroom and access to the rear garden.
Upstairs, stylishly redecorated in Farrow and Ball paints and wallpapers, there are three bedrooms, all of which are light and bright, and one featuring an exposed brick chimney breast. The addition of a newly installed shower room, contemporary in style, completes this lovely cottage.
Outside the pretty rear garden extends to around 80ft in length and comprises three defined areas: a large patio area, perfect for accommodating garden furniture; a beautiful pergola and seating area, draped by a mature wisteria; and a lawn, bordered by mature shrubs including bay trees and a Magnolia tree.
To the rear of the garden is a summer house, currently used as a gym, but with many uses and equally ideal for storage.
Potten End is the quintessential English country village, with a village green, pond, church, hall, playgroup, primary school, two pubs and village shop. Set amidst beautiful countryside, yet only around two miles from Berkhamsted, it offers the best of both worlds; the rural idyll within striking distance of many amenities.
There is a thriving social life to be found, with clubs as diverse as Guides, Brownies, Beavers and Scouts to bridge, line dancing, cricket, bowls, WI, yoga and badminton.
Nearby Berkhamsted is a busy market town with many independent shops and a thriving market, 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 at Berkhamsted Castle.
The area is highly desirable for commuters, with excellent transport links by road and rail. Berkhamsted mainline train station provides a regular and direct link to London Euston in around 30 minutes. 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. The National Trust`s 5,000 acre Ashridge Estate is just minutes away, while nearby golf courses include Berkhamsted and The Grove. The area offers excellent schooling, including Potten End School, Berkhamsted School 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 WH Smith.
