Prime property. Plenty of potential.
This charming and characterful, detached three bedroom home is situated in a prestigious location, moments from Berkhamsted town, and comes with excellent potential for remodelling and extension.
This gorgeous property, home to the same family for over 35 years, now awaits the next generation to enjoy its many attributes.
There is no doubt that the property is a rare find and, whilst the house is charming as it is, the next owners may wish to modernise some aspects of it and perhaps extend too.
The home retains many beautiful and original features including the original attractive porch and oak front door, tiled hallway, parquet flooring in the sitting room, and original windows.
Inside, there is the most lovely, warm and welcoming feel and most of the rooms enjoy views of the rear garden.
The sitting room, located in the centre of the house, is beautiful, with its lovely bay window and an attractive Arts and Craft fire place.
To one end of the house is an additional reception/family room, and sizeable cloakroom. To the other end is a large kitchen/breakfast room, with a dining room adjacent. The kitchen is traditional in style, including cream wall and base units complimented by a double sink, wooden worktops and breakfast bar, and oak flooring.
The dining room is gorgeous and boasts bifold doors out to the rear garden.
Upstairs, there are three good size bedrooms, each benefitting from built-in wardrobes. One of the bedrooms enjoys the added benefit of a modern en suite shower room. The attractive family bathroom boasts underfloor heating, and the addition of the separate shower room is most beneficial.
Up in the attic space, a loft room can be found, complete with Velux window. This superb bonus space has scope to convert into a new principal bedroom suite, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission/building regulations approval.
Externally, from the kitchen is a covered lobby, with access to a hobbies room and garage.
The southerly-facing, private rear garden is stunning, with several seating areas, including a loggia, in which to sit and enjoy the garden. Laid to lawn, it has well stocked flower beds.
To the front, there is a garage and ample driveway parking. An added bonus, the property also benefits from an additional parking bay to the front.
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.
