Internally, the downstairs is stylish and well-presented, with spacious, L-shaped, open-plan living accommodation. The sitting room has an attractive bay window with shutters and a pretty, decorative fireplace, and leads through to the dining/family room, complete with bi fold doors to the rear garden. The contemporary kitchen includes lovely white quartz work surfaces and integrated appliances.
The living area is light and airy, with access directly out to a decked area, which benefits from an elevated position overlooking the garden - a perfect place to entertain.

Currently, the property has four bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom is most attractive, with a bay window and an array of stylish fitted wardrobes.
Externally, the rear garden is laid to lawn, and a good size for such a central location within the town. To the front, there is a lawn and driveway.
Finally, this wonderful home provides potential to extend, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, either to the rear or into the loft which has already been floored and is accessed from a staircase.
Berkhamsted itself is a busy market town, located to the West of Hertfordshire and just 30 minutes from London by train. Perhaps the town's most prominent role in National affairs came in 1066 when William the Conqueror was handed the English Crown. Berkhamsted Castle was built following the granting of the crown, and famous names associated with it include Geoffrey Chaucer who was Clerk of Works, and Thomas Becket who was Constable of the Castle in the 12th Century. Substantial ruins of the Castle still remain today.
Today, the town is highly desirable for commuters, with excellent transport links by road and rail. The mainline train station provides a regular and direct link to London Euston in a little over 30 minutes. Major road connections nearby include the M25 (J20) and the M1 (J8 and J9). The A41 dual carriageway runs to the South of the town, providing an excellent connection to Hemel Hempstead, Watford, Tring and Aylesbury.
There is a good range of leisure facilities in the area. There is walking and riding just minutes away in the surrounding countryside and on the National Trust's 5,000 acre Ashridge Estate, while nearby golf courses include Ashridge, Berkhamsted and The Grove. The area offers excellent schooling, including Berkhamsted School, founded in 1541, and Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.
Berkhamsted offers a wide range of shopping, from independent boutiques to national names such as Waitrose and M&S Simply Food. The larger towns of Hemel Hempstead and Watford offer wider facilities, including Debenhams and John Lewis department stores respectively. Milton Keynes and London are both easily accessible too.
