The largest home in this prestigious collection of just three converted barns at the top of Ivy House Lane, The Woodcock sits on the edge of miles of countryside walks and Berkhamsted Golf Club, while just a short walk from all the many amenities Berkhamsted has to offer.
The exterior is a striking combination of black weatherboarding, grey windows and an abundance of glass. Internally, there is a prevalence of beautiful green oak throughout, including doors, beams, flooring and the staircase.
There are many wow factors, not least of which is the capacious, open-plan kitchen/sitting/family room with exposed beams, log burner and countryside views. The kitchen itself provides everything today's buyers demand, including a large central island, drinks cooler, coffee machine, warming drawers, steamer oven, wine fridge and breakfast bar.
Across the wide, bright entrance hall, the dining room opposite also boasts oak beams and a second log burner; the perfect setting for elegant entertaining, or to use as a second, more intimate sitting room. Behind the staircase, a cosy snug can be found, while a stylish cloakroom and good size utility room complete the downstairs accommodation.
Ascend the stylish oak staircase, the spacious, vaulted landing leads to four double bedrooms, all of which have en suites.
Of particular note, the sumptuous and spacious master enjoys wonderful views across the valley, thanks to its four glazed doors and glass Juliet balcony. There is also plenty of storage with its fitted wardrobes and the fabulously indulgent walk-in dressing room. Last but by no means least, the sizeable en suite, in luxurious grey hues, includes a bath and twin basins as well as a walk-in shower.
Externally, the garden has been beautifully landscaped and incorporates lawns, elegant terraces, and a large pond; and with the same attention to detail found throughout the rest of the house, everything outside is kept beautiful and lush, thanks to an automatic irrigation system.
Parking is neatly provided, including a double carport which also benefits from a large loft area above; with natural light, it could easily be converted to a gym, office or hobbies room, subject to obtaining the necessary planning/building consents.
For peace of mind, the entire development offers an exclusive, secure environment, thanks to its electrically operated gate.
Lastly, whilst this beautiful home certainly has the character of yesteryear, the latest 21st century technologies, such as underfloor heating managed by a state-of-the-art hybrid air source heatpump, have also been utilised to ensure it is also practical, comfortable and energy efficient.
