Period charm in a perfect, sought after location.
This lovely end of terrace period cottage, situated in the popular location of George Street, is conveniently located within walking distance of Berkhamsted town, schools, train station and the canal.
Set back from the road, quite unusual for the street, this handsome home benefits from a pretty front garden stocked with flowers and shrubs including a pathway leading up to the cottage.
Inside, the cottage is deceptively spacious. The living space includes a spacious living room/dining room, which benefits from a log burning stove and wood flooring.
From here is the modern fitted kitchen, with a high pitched ceiling and a stable door out to the garden. Beyond the kitchen is the bathroom with separate toilet.
Upstairs, ascending the spiral staircase, are two double bedrooms, one with built-in wardrobes. Both bedrooms have recently been fitted with attractive, newly laid laminate wooden flooring. In addition there is a large loft, benefitting from a sky light, perfect for a number of uses.
Outside, the rear garden is low maintenance, including a patio area and boasts two outbuildings.
This cottage has the potential to extend, to create an additional bedroom in the loft, or even to create a studio/office to the rear of the garden, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.
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. Milton Keynes and London are both easily accessible too.
