££545,000 Guide

Quintessential country cottage moments from town.

For Sale

From the moment you open the garden gate and walk up the winding path to the front door of this gorgeous brick and flint property, you know you are in for a treat - and once inside, it doesn`t disappoint.

If anything, it exceeds expectations, as it is far bigger inside than you would imagine, having been sympathetically extended downstairs with meticulous attention to detail (such as including feature areas of flint in the outside walls) to ensure the integrity of its age and character is not compromised.

The hallway leads into a spacious sitting room with the all-important log burner, exposed brick walls, ceiling beams and engineered wood flooring.

It retains a large brick pillar from when it was one house with next door, which is a real feature and only serves to enhance the ambience of the room.

Another pleasing surprise is the large, walk-in cupboard which is perfect for hiding away children`s toys.

The dining room beyond is enhanced by an exposed brick wall and French doors into the good sized walled rear garden.

Continue along and you reach a lovely downstairs bathroom, and beyond, a spacious and stylish kitchen which looks out to, and opens onto, the garden - ideal if you have young children you need to keep any eye on. The garden is actually bigger than it initially looks as it continues to a wide side area, where there is a shed, a bin store and gate for side access.

Upstairs, the two double bedrooms are charm personified, with their original ceiling beams and original pine doors. The main bedroom, to the front, spans the width of the property and also boasts a most attractive original cast iron fireplace and a vaulted ceiling.

Set well back from the road, with the prettiest of walled cottage gardens to the front, this unique semi detached property has a tangible charm that can only be fully appreciated by viewing in person.

Northchurch is a popular residential area located approximately a mile and a half from Berkhamsted town centre and two miles from the train station.

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.
