THE PROPERTY
In this highly sought after retirement development, there are 12 apartments with layouts to suit individual tastes, and this particular apartment, because of its size, layout and position is perhaps one of the best. It is light and bright, due to having windows looking out on three different aspects, and from the sitting room, you can see across to the canal. Outside, as well as the pretty, well maintained communal gardens, the apartment has a lovely sunny patio area to the front, where you can sit out and enjoy being sociable with the neighbours as they come and go.

Internally, the good size master bedroom to the front is also light and bright, and will easily take a double bed and double wardrobe, with room to spare. The second bedroom is a single, but also a good size.

The kitchen is fitted and the living/dining room is a convenient `L` shape, allowing easy layout of furniture into sitting and dining areas. The large, deep bay window is a lovely place to place an armchair beside and watch the barges and people go by on the canal beyond.

Lastly, the bathroom is not only a good size, it boasts a large corner walk in shower cubicle, for ease and convenience.

Bridge Court is tucked away out of sight at the end of centrally located Bridge Street, one of the most pretty and sought after cul de sacs in the Conservation area. A short walk to all the town`s amenities, it is easy to see why it is such a popular location.


LOCATION
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.
