Countryside beauty, moments from town.

Under Offer

Situated in an idyllic location, just a few minutes from the town centre, yet with ever-changing countryside quite literally on the doorstep, Shire House offers an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a wonderfully unique period home in a gorgeous location, and with huge potential.

For sale for the first time since 1972, and offered with no upper chain, this handsome, Edwardian property offers tremendous scope for new owners to update, remodel and perhaps extend, creating the perfect home for twenty-first century family life.

The accommodation is both generous and light. Downstairs includes a spacious hallway, large sitting room with open fire, a separate dining room and a good size kitchen/breakfast room. Completing the downstairs accommodation is a utility room and WC. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

Sitting centrally in its pretty gardens, the property enjoys a high degree of privacy. Approached by a sweeping driveway which allows plenty of parking and leads to a double garage, the plot backs and fronts onto picturesque countryside, and the views are breathtaking. Indeed, the entire plot is a delight, with the many mature trees creating a private oasis, wrapping around the front, rear and both sides of the house.

The property also has its own paddock, accessed from the driveway, and there is also a useful brick outbuilding/store.

In all, the total plot measures approximately 1.8 acre.

The property is offered for sale with no upper chain.

Tring is a pretty market town on the edge of the Chiltern Hills, mentioned in 1086 in the Domesday book. The town offers a wide range of recreational facilities, including a branch of the Natural History Museum, the Grand Union Canal, Pendley Court Theatre, and various sporting activities.

Local shopping facilities are varied and include a selection of independent boutiques, plus larger chains such as Tesco and M&S Simply Food. There are also a number of restaurants and cafes, including Costa and Black Goo.

The slightly larger market town of Berkhamsted is only around 5 miles away, and offers a further range of shops and facilities, including Waitrose and Starbucks.

Buckinghamshire`s County Town, Aylesbury, is around 8 miles and boasts a multiplex cinema, shopping centres, and a recently completed £42 million theatre.

The area boasts some excellent educational facilities, including Tring School. For those wishing to use the independent sector, Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, Berkhamsted School, and Chesham Preparatory School all have superb reputations.

London is easily accessible. Both commuters to town, and those seeking some retail therapy at Westfield, are well catered for with Tring station providing regular and direct train services to London Euston and Shepherds Bush in a little over 40 minutes. Road links nearby include the A41, which provides dual carriageway access direct to the M25 (J20).
