££725,000 Guide

3 Bedroom House For Sale

'Chocolate box' appeal, and a picture-perfect, canalside setting.

ENTRANCE HALL * SITTING ROOM * DINING ROOM * KITCHEN * MASTER BEDROOM WITH EN SUITE DRESSING ROOM & BATHROOM * TWO FURTHER BEDROOMS * SHOWER ROOM * OFFICE/STUDIO * DRIVEWAY PARKING FOR THREE CARS * MATURE GARDEN * PICTURESQUE, CANALSIDE SETTING

Enjoying an enviable, picturesque location, in the village Conservation Area and directly alongside the Grand Union Canal, this beautiful house certainly offers a magical setting, together with wonderful period charm.

Believed to date to the mid 17th Century, this enchanting Grade II listed home quite simply exudes character. As one might expect, a plethora of exposed beams adorn every room, while there are quirky nooks and crannies to be discovered around every corner.

The unusual yet versatile accommodation is arranged over three floors, and many of the rooms enjoy a canal view. The living space boasts a spacious, light, bright feel, thanks to its dual aspect, bay window and semi-open-plan configuration - the two independent reception rooms are separated by exposed beams. The good size adjacent kitchen features handmade, painted units with polished quartz worktops. Swans approach the kitchen window to be fed and there is the occasional flash of an iridescent kingfisher.

The property features a total of three double bedrooms: two are located on the ground floor, while the master bedroom, complete with its own dressing room and en suite bathroom, can be found upstairs on the first floor.

The lower ground floor includes a modern fitted shower room, useful utility area, and a sizeable basement workshop/storage room.

Outside, a surprisingly generous garden can be found, with the pretty picket fence the only obstacle between your own private land and the canal. Indeed, a garden gate provides access directly onto the towpath, meaning beautiful countryside walks really are there, quite literally on your doorstep.

A gated driveway provides ample parking for three/four cars, while the adjacent detached outbuilding has been cleverly converted into a very useful office/studio - perfect for those looking to work from home, or as a hobbies room or mini gym.

While its 'chocolate box' appeal and picture-perfect setting are undoubtedly captivating aspects of this gorgeous house, The Ship also has a fascinating history of course; a cottage, a shop, a pub, and even old rumours of highwaymen bedding down for the evening, every century has added its own new chapter to its long and wonderful history.

Situated in one of Marsworth's best kept secrets, Ship Lane - a little-known country lane on the edge of the village, and a no-through-road - the property is tucked-away, yet only a few minutes walk of the village school, pub, recreation ground, village hall and Church.

The pretty village of Marsworth offers the best of both worlds; offering quintessential village life, yet only around 2 miles from the facilities of nearby Tring.

All Saints Church, dating back to the 12th Century, is centrally located in the village, along with the Red Lion, one of the village’s two pubs, and which itself dates back to the 17th Century. The beautiful countryside that surrounds the village is ideal for walking, and includes miles of tucked-away footpaths, the Grand Union Canal, and the Tring reservoirs.

Nearby communication links are excellent, including the A41 at Tring, which provides a dual carriageway link direct to the M25 (J20). Tring also has its own mainline train station, with regular and direct service to London Euston in approx. 35 mins.

Educational facilities are excellent for all ages; the vast majority of homes in the village fall within the Grammar Schools catchment area in Aylesbury, and others being served by Tring School.

The nearby towns offer a comprehensive range of facilities, from the boutiques and coffee shops in picturesque Tring and Berkhamsted, to the shopping centres and department stores of Hemel Hempstead and Aylesbury, both of which also boast multiplex cinemas and extensive leisure facilities.
