Hawridge Common, Hawridge, Chesham, Buckinghamshire, HP5

££875,000 Guide

3 Bedroom House For Sale

May Cottage enjoys a sense of rural tranquillity that belies its convenient proximity to nearby Tring, Berkhamsted, Chesham and Wendover. And, most unusually for a property of its age, it also features a garage and off-road parking.

Grade II listed and dating to 1571, this beautiful home has been sensitively brought into the twenty-first century by the current owners.

With views over prestigious Hawridge Common, throughout the property, wonderful period features and dramatic beamed ceilings can be found around every corner, while versatile living spaces and cosy nooks blend harmoniously. There is an air of quality in the property with oak joinery throughout and cast iron door furniture.

On the ground floor, there are two large reception rooms. The sitting room features a magnificent inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, and includes an elegant secondary seating area. The dining room spans some 24ft and has a decorative cast iron fireplace on a granite hearth, while double French doors open onto a patio.

The kitchen/breakfast room is well appointed and boasts a dual aspect. There is a lobby and a cloakroom which can be found just off the kitchen . A separate utility room is situated immediately adjoining the kitchen, in its own building.

Upstairs, two of the bedrooms can be found on the first floor, along with the family bathroom. Both handsome double rooms, the master bedroom has its own en suite shower room, while the second bedroom features a stunning vaulted ceiling and fitted wardrobes.

Up again to the second floor, the third bedroom - again a double room - has a pretty beamed ceiling and a built-in desk and cupboards.

Outside, the lovely, mature rear garden extends to around 65ft and enjoys a south-westerly aspect. Laid to lawn, it has a small greenhouse, patio and an additional pretty wisteria and vine-covered terrace, perfect for barbeques or for those seeking a little welcome shade on the hottest afternoons. A gate in the rear fence takes you to adjoining woodland and countryside.

To the front, the property is very well set back from the road and as a result has excellent parking facilities. The front garden is landscaped including a raised circular central flowerbed and a productive, fenced vegetable plot. The gravel driveway leads to a good size garage, which features an electric door and useful floored storage above. Two other outbuildings have been cleverly converted into a home-office and a gym/studio.   

This rural idyll really does provide the best of both worlds; the perfect opportunity to 'live the countryside dream', with the buzz of beautiful market towns, and all their coffee shops, bars and restaurants, are just down the road when needed.

Hawridge is one of four neighbouring Chiltern villages in Buckinghamshire on the border with Hertfordshire about 4 miles from Tring and 6 miles from Berkhamsted.

The village offers a wide range of recreational facilities with the nearby common offering lovely country walks and bridleways as well as the cricket club and local pub. There are a number of surrounding towns all providing multiple shopping facilities and amenities.

Communication links are excellent, with the A41 providing a dual carriageway link direct to the M25 (J20). There are mainline train stations in Tring (regular and direct service to London Euston in approx. 35 mins), Wendover and Stoke Mandeville (both with regular and direct service to London Marylebone in around 50 and 55 mins respectively).   

The area boasts some excellent educational facilities, including the local village school (approximately 200 metres from the property), and nearby 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.
