The perfect project, with plenty of potential.
This individual property represents an exciting opportunity to acquire a three bedroom detached house in Berkhamsted with plenty of potential to put your own stamp on it.
The downstairs accommodation is in need of some re-decoration, but the work is largely cosmetic and it would not take much to give it a stunning, contemporary makeover.
To the right of the wide hallway, there is a large, dual aspect sitting room and a kitchen/dining room, also dual aspect, and both these rooms run the depth of the property.
To the left of the hallway, the present layout affords a study to the front, family room to the rear, plus a downstairs shower room and a utility room with a side door onto the patio.
These rooms could be easily reconfigured to suit individual needs, if one so desired. There is also the potential to extend, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.
Upstairs, the house is more finished, with a lovely contemporary family bathroom and three double bedrooms. The light streams through the windows and there is a great feeling of space and airiness.
Outside, to the rear, there is a good size patio with steps leading up to a lawned garden, with a brick wall rear boundary.
To the front, there is a paved, walled, and gated garden, with parking for several cars.
The property is near to the Grand Union Canal, so pleasant towpath walks are a stone's throw away. Berkhamsted town centre is a short drive or approximately a twenty minute walk away.
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.
