Canalside and country.

Under Offer

Nestled away down a coveted country lane, in a beautiful canalside position and in the local Conservation Area, Bridgeways is undoubtedly a much admired home with lots of history.

Dating to the mid 1800s, now Grade II listed, this elegant Victorian property was once a toll house for passing boats using the canal. Today, now beautifully restored by the current owners who have created an impressive family home, the property offers versatile, light-filled living spaces, four double bedrooms, a large garden, together with a location which is nothing less than perfect giving an opportunity to purchase an historic property on a rare double lock with a wealth of history and original features.

Downstairs, the property boasts three beautiful reception rooms. The largest of these, the sitting room, occupies the central portion of the house and features a large, semi-circular bay window from where fabulous views across the adjacent recreational ground can be enjoyed. A wood burning stove is located at one end of the room, along with an original glazed cabinet, while an interesting Victorian plaster divider – a rare example of such a thing – also remains intact.

The dining room, positioned at the western end of the building, is similarly generously sized and has a dual aspect, original fireplace and unique wooden architecture.

Running throughout the ground floor is an attractive hallway with an eye-catching teal and white tiled floor. At the end of it, the unusually shaped kitchen has been cleverly refitted recently and leads through into a separate utility room, while the generous adjacent study has potential to be incorporated to create a larger kitchen/dining room, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consents. A cloakroom and boiler room complete the ground floor.

Upstairs, there are a total of four double bedrooms, all with high ceilings and lots of natural light, and with each room having its own unique character. The impressive principal bedroom features an original fireplace and benefits from an en suite shower room, while the equally spacious family bathroom serves the remaining rooms. To the rear, the original toll office, today a most attractive reading room, enjoys picturesque views up and down the canal from its three windows.

Outside, the property comes with a plot of just over a third of an acre. The pretty gravel driveway provides plenty of parking, while flower-lined paths meander around the front of the house, passing by the log store and original old workshop washhouse, before culminating at the gorgeous 200ft garden.

The garden, while certainly generous, is by no means too large for it to be onerous; lovingly maintained, lawns, vegetable gardens and a small copse run along the canal to one side, the recreation ground to the other. For those with children, halcyon summer days and life-long memories await the making – there are two picket gates leading directly onto a little village play area and the Grand Union Canal.

Undoubtedly one of the area’s finest, most admired homes, Bridgeways enjoys a glorious, idyllic setting and, situated within the Aylesbury grammar schools catchment area, yet only 2 miles from Tring, it offers the ideal location too.
