In the heart of sought after Marsworth village, nestled alongside medieval All Saints Church, much-admired Church Cottage has a wonderful history and plenty of character, located close enough to town to be practical, yet far enough away to provide peace and tranquillity after a hard day at the office.
Formerly no less than five cottages, today an exceptional single private house, the property offers impressive, spacious accommodation.
Downstairs, the property boasts four handsome reception rooms. The largest of these - the stylish drawing room - features a large, walk-in bay, from where beautiful views of the gardens can be enjoyed; of generous proportions, this lovely room certainly offers a wonderful, versatile space, equally ideal for entertaining as it is every-day family life. The nearby sitting room meanwhile, while cosier, is still a very good size room, as is the elegant formal dining room and dual-aspect study.
The heart of any home is, of course, the kitchen, and at Church Cottage things are no different; here, preparing dinner is sure to be all the more enjoyable, as you feast your eyes on those gorgeous views outside, catching a glimpse of the Church tower through the trees. With a central island and plenty of space for a sofa and TV too, it is bound to be the room of choice for informal family occasions, while a notably sizeable utility room, complete with cloakroom/shower room, can be found just through the next doorway.
Upstairs, there are five double bedrooms, all with high ceilings and lots of natural light, and with each room having its own unique character. Four of the bedrooms have their own en suite bathrooms.
Outside, there is a double garage and cobbled driveway. The garden, large enough for most requirements yet not so large as to be onerous, has been lovingly maintained and is well stocked with shrubs and perennials. Enjoying a south-westerly aspect, in all, the plot extends to just over a quarter of an acre and backs onto open fields.
Undoubtedly one of the areas finest, most admired homes, Church Cottage also enjoys a glorious, picturesque setting. And situated within the Aylesbury grammar schools catchment area, yet only 2 miles from Tring, it offers an ideal location too.
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 villages 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 approximately 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.
