Nestled away and set well back from the road, this delightful, unique property offers an abundance of charm and character both inside and out, and is ideally located just a short walk from the town centre, schools and train station.
Understood to originally date to the 1920s, this fabulous home offers versatile, spacious, well-appointed living accommodation with most rooms appreciating views of the beautiful gardens.
The open-plan sitting room and dining room are generously proportioned and feature an open fireplace and wood burning stove respectively, and enjoy access out to the garden through French doors. Just off the dining room, the good size study could alternatively be utilised as a fourth bedroom, if preferred.
The master bedroom is currently located on the ground floor, and boasts built-in wardrobes and a particularly large en suite bathroom, complete with separate shower and benefitting from underfloor heating. Last but not least, the ground floor also includes the family shower room; again a good size and fitted with a modern suite.
Upstairs, the remaining two bedrooms can be found, both of which are double rooms and both with lovely views across the town.
Externally, this unique home offers something of an oasis of beautiful outdoor space, highly unusual for a property so close to town. The mature plot enjoys an elevated position, with gently sloping lawned gardens, well-stocked flower beds and thoughtfully placed seating areas in which to relax watching the squirrels and birds that have also made this wonderful spot their home.
Access to the house is either from Kings Road at the front, via a gated stepped pathway ascending the slope, or from the rear, via a pretty driveway just off Ashlyns Road, where a single garage and driveway can also be found.
In addition, this most attractive home has the potential to extend further, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.
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.
