Large plot, plenty of potential, right in the heart of coveted Aldbury.
Anyone who dreams of living in the coveted village of Aldbury needs to view this house quickly, as it will be in demand for its location, plot size and potential.
Available for the first time in over 50 years, 'Barleycombe' started life as a 1960s detached house and average sized garden. The present vendors then bought more land at the rear, to provide a large and private garden that overlooks fields, with a plot size of 0.29 acre.
In the 1980s, they also virtually doubled its size with a single storey side extension that boasts a huge triple aspect reception room of approx 30ft x 20ft to suit their lifestyle. Today's buyer will probably want to remodel it for their own requirements, and it provides exciting potential to do this.
Present accommodation comprises four bedrooms and one bathroom upstairs, a kitchen, study, snug/dining room, utility room, downstairs cloakroom and, as mentioned, the large reception room.
There is also a single garage, driveway parking for up to four cars and a front garden. Located in Trooper Road, a stone's throw from the village centre with its pond, ancient Stocks, village shop/PO, pub, Church and village school.
Aldbury is a quintessential English village in between the quaint Hertfordshire market town of Tring and the increasingly metropolitan town of Berkhamsted. It is often used as a TV and film location because of its `chocolate box` appeal, with a duck pond, village shop, Church and two pub/restaurants located in or near the village centre. It boasts an excellent Church of England Primary School, which feeds into the highly regarded Tring Secondary School or, for those seeking private educational facilities, there is a plethora of choice, including the renowned Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, and Berkhamsted School.
The vibrant and thriving village community is another reason this village is so popular and residents seldom leave, instead upsizing or downsizing within. Nestling at the foot of the beautiful National Trust Ashridge Estate, the area is also a haven for golfers, horse riders and walkers.
And all only about 40 minutes away from London by train, with Tring station just over a mile away. The A41, M1 and M25 are all close by too. For shoppers, Berkhamsted offers an array of independent shops, or Milton Keynes, Watford and St Albans are slightly further afield.
