Tenure: Freehold

Available to market for only the second time in over 50 years, The Boote is surely one of Berkhamsted's iconic listed buildings, steeped in history and believed to date back to circa 1605 with later additions. According to local history The Boote was a former public house and latterly became a private home in the 1920's after a short time as an antiques business. It has been home to its current owners for over 25 years who have maintained most of the buildings original features of which there are many, with exposed timbers and inglenook fireplace to name a few. The property is truly unique and as well as being ideally located for the High Street and mainline station, offers off-street parking, a beautifully secluded walled garden, garage and annexe.

Ground Floor

On entering the property one is immediately met by a spacious and welcoming entrance hall which leads to all principal reception rooms on the ground floor. The sitting room is a charming space, full of character features including exposed timbers and large open Inglenook fireplace and provides an ideal place in which to relax with family and friends. The study is of good proportions with a door leading to the patio and garden beyond. The dining room also leads from the entrance hall and has space for a large dining table providing the perfect area in which to entertain, with the kitchen conveniently adjoining. Very much in keeping with the character of the property, the kitchen features a range of country style units, ceramic sink, breakfast bar and gas fired Stanley cooker. There is a further door leading out to the rear patio and walled garden.

First Floor

Stairs rise from the entrance hall to the first floor where there is a master bedroom with built in wardrobes, eaves storage and an adjoining room which would benefit conversion to an en-suite shower room, a double bedroom, good sized single bedroom and family bathroom. There is a small amount of loft storage accessed by a hatch from the upstairs landing.

Annexe

Thought to date back to the 18th Century, the detached annexe is a real feature of this property and provides a versatile space for an Au Pair or guest accommodation, home office or potential rental income. Although compact, it benefits an open plan living area and kitchenette with space for a double bed and storage and small shower room.

Outside

To the rear of The Boote accessed via doors from either the study, kitchen or dining room is a beautiful hidden gem by way of a walled garden which is of a quite unexpected size given the central town location of the property. For the keen gardener there is an array of shrubs and fruit trees as well as a level area of lawn, all of which is spacious and secluded. There is an area allocated to a vegetable patch and a separate brick potting shed or workshop. To the side of the property alongside the annexe is a single brick built garage with up and over door and York Stone paved courtyard providing outside parking for two cars.
