High Street, Tring, Hertfordshire, HP23

££1,450,000 Guide

Home with a history.

Designed by, and the former home of, notable local architect William Huckvale (1848-1936), Ardmore is most certainly a home with an exceptional pedigree.

This imposing Victorian villa is, without doubt, one of the finest of its kind in the town. Located in the Conservation Area, right on the High Street, with local shops, restaurants and coffee shops only a few steps away, many sit side-by-side Huckvale’s other notable buildings in the town, including the Market House, Rose & Crown and Zoological Museum.

Today, building on its fine heritage, Ardmore has been sensitively remodelled by the current owners, who themselves have thoughtfully reimagined the property to create a sumptuous family home fit for twenty first century living; the perfect blend of traditional and contemporary. Unusually for a property of its type and age, it also includes the added benefit of having parking and garaging for a total of six cars.

Accommodation is substantial, with a capacious interior over three floors, plus a cellar. Many beautiful original features continue to adorn the property, from tiled floors to fireplaces, and with gloriously high ceilings throughout so typical of the period.

On the ground floor, from the wide hallway, there are three principal reception rooms, all of which and have their original fireplaces, now with woodburners added. The front sitting room in particular is most attractive and features a large bay window.

Further along the hallway is a utility room and cloakroom, and access to the sizeable cellar. Further in still, old gives way to new at the rear of the house, with a spectacular kitchen/dining room, stylishly added by the current owners. Well appointed, including Neff appliances, Liebherr wine fridge and Quooker tap, this breathtaking room measures some 34ft and features underfloor heating, electrically operated blinds, remote controlled roof lights and Fabco steel framed windows. An eye-catching picture frame window sits at the far end, affording attractive views over playing fields.

The five double bedrooms are arranged over the two upper floors of the property, accessed from sizeable landing areas which add further to the wonderful sense of space to be found throughout the property. Three bedrooms, including a stunning principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, along with a modern family bathroom are located on the first floor, while the two remaining bedrooms are positioned on the top floor, along with a contemporary shower room. All bathrooms have underfloor heating.

Outside, the rear garden has been professionally landscaped and includes a lawned area, a pergola with infra-red heating, and huge patio perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining. There is front to back side access down one side of the property and, at the rear of the garden and located off an unmade drive just off Christchurch Road, there is a large double garage with electric remote control doors, plus parking for a further four cars.

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).
