££375,000 Guide

Chain-free project with plenty of potential.

Under Offer

This two double bedroom semi-detached house with driveway parking is the perfect property for anyone looking for a project.

Built in 1959, and lived in by the same owner since new, it has a sweet charm about it and could, if desired, be lived in just as it is, with just a little cosmetic work to bring it up to date.

It comprises a hallway, through-lounge, kitchen, two double bedrooms, bathroom with bath and power shower, part-boarded loft with ladder and light and a useful outbuilding with enclosed walkway through to the rear.

And, with the appropriate planning consent, it has the lots of potential to extend too.

There is already driveway parking, but this, too, could be extended to incorporate the enclosed front garden, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consent.

The well-proportioned rear garden is a good size and well stocked with perennials.

Location-wise, the property is close to Westfield Road and St Marys C-of-E primary schools, and approximately a mile from the town centre and the station. The added bonus is that this property is chain-free.

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.
