This exceptional, gorgeous home is situated in a wonderful canalside setting, and offers extended light-filled living spaces, together with three good size bedrooms.
The property has undergone many stylish improvements both internally and externally, including the addition of a newly fitted kitchen, garden landscaping, a beautiful stained glass front door, and detached garage with electrically operated door.
Built in the late 1920s, this attractive house has the novelty of two entrances: one from the canal tow path, the other from the driveway to the rear.
Inside, the fabulous split level open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room is most impressive. The bespoke kitchen boasts oak flooring, soft grey wall and base units complemented by a white quartz worktop, housing a Perrin and Rowe sink and taps including a hot water tap. Everything about this property speaks of quality, and thoughtfulness, including the sunken radiators in the family room.
Adjacent, is a lovely cosy library/family room which boasts a log burning stove.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two of which benefit from views of the canal. The family bathroom is modern in style and includes a separate shower cubicle.
Externally, with access from the sitting room, is an attractive decked area, complete with a glass balustrade - the perfect setting for al fresco dining and overlooking the rear garden.
The front garden is laid to lawn with steps leading up to the canal tow path - ideal for walking into the town and train station.
This lovely property is most definitely a house that needs to be viewed to fully appreciate its many advantages, not least of which is its wonderful location.
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.
