For Sale

This attractive, two bedroom period home is situated in the heart of the Conservation Area, moments from the town centre with all its amenities, and within walking distance of the railway station.

This stunning cottage includes many period features, including stripped pine doors, wooden flooring, period fireplaces and renovated sash windows with shutters.

Inside, this light and airy home benefits from two separate reception rooms: the sitting room, boasting a bay window to the front, and a sizeable dining room behind, leading through to the kitchen. Both rooms benefit from fireplaces.

The kitchen is most attractive with shaker style, wall and base units, granite work top and wood flooring. The kitchen window overlooks the rear garden and a side door leads out to the side patio area.

Upstairs are two good size double bedrooms, along with a stylish and modern bathroom.

Outside, the rear garden is south-westerly facing. From the patio area, steps lead up to the lawn. At the rear of the garden is a large storage shed, complete with electric. This space has previously been used as a home office and currently provides space for additional household electricals.

In addition there is a convenient gated rear access.

This lovely home has the potential to either extend to the side or to create a loft conversion, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.

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.
