Windyridge is a beautifully refurbished and extended family home. Originally built in the 1960's, the house has now been significantly extended and refurbished and now offers well balanced accommodation over two floors. On the ground floor, the house offers an entrance hall leading initially to the triple aspect sitting room with doors leading out to the garden. The open plan kitchen / dining area is a particular feature of the house with contemporary and stylish eye and base level units. All appliances are from Siemens including two conventional ovens, a steam oven, a microwave, an induction hob and dishwasher. The dining area has a spectacular roof lantern which floods the room with light and has foldaway doors leading to the pretty rear terrace. There is also a family room, a study and a downstairs shower room which offer the potential for a self-contained annex should it be needed.
Upon climbing the stairs, the landing takes you to the delightful master bedroom with a dressing room and ensuite bathroom. There is a second bedroom with ensuite shower room and three further guest bedrooms, all served by the family bathroom.
The property also has the benefit of inset ceiling mounted Sonance speakers in the kitchen / dining area, drawing room and master bedroom.
Windyridge is set in a desirable position on the edge of the sought after village of Little Gaddesden. The nearby Ashridge Estate includes the Bridgewater monument; a 108 ft tower, built in 1832, offering spectacular views over the estate and surrounding Chilterns' countryside. The park itself, formerly a hunting estate of King Henry VIII, extends to about 4000 acres of beech woodland, common land and downland, now owned by the National Trust and designated as being an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whilst the property enjoys a private and secluded location, the nearby village of Little Gaddesden provides a junior school, general store and the Bridgewater Arms public house. The neighbouring market town of Berkhamsted is within a short driving distance and offers a number of retail chain stores as well as local shops, an impressive choice of cafes, restaurants and public houses. The area is very well served with excellent schools for all ages within close proximity.
Public transport links are particularly good with a fast train link from Berkhamsted Station (5.5 miles) into London Euston Station in one direction and Milton Keynes and Birmingham in the other.
Leisure facilities in the area include golf courses at Ashridge, Berkhamsted and Chartridge. There is also The Rex Cinema in Berkhamsted, a leisure centre and Champneys spa near Tring. There is huge scope for walking and riding in the local area with thousands of acres of open countryside including the Chiltern Hills and hundreds of footpaths and bridleways.
The property is approached via a five bar gate onto a gravel driveway, leading to parking for several cars and an integral garage. The gardens are wonderfully mature and mainly laid to lawn with well stocked beds and borders with a selection of specimen trees which create a very private and secluded garden. A large sun terrace abuts the rear of the house leading out from the dining area which creates the ideal space for entertaining and al-fresco dining. A path leads from the terrace to the gardens at the side.
Planning permission has been granted to build a detached two bay garage and the details can be viewed on the Dacorum Borough Council website using reference: 4/00814/16/FHA. Once constructed the current garage offers potential, subject to all the usual consents, to be integrated into the main house as further living accommodation.
