Full description

Tenure: Freehold


This elegant, attractive, period house is situated in one of Hertfordshire`s most coveted villages, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and just four miles north of Berkhamsted.

Set in impressive, mature grounds of approximately 0.4 acre, surrounded by open countryside and on the edge of Little Gaddesden`s Conservation Area, the property also has scope for enlargement, if required, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

Inside, the versatile, generous accommodation has been tastefully presented in classic tones, and includes three principal reception rooms, a kitchen with separate utility room, and three bedrooms. The generous sitting room has bi-fold doors opening out onto a large terrace, perfect for entertaining and offering tranquility and privacy. In addition to the main dwelling, the property, unusually, also features a separate, detached annexe/studio building, located directly to the rear of the house. To one end, a cosy annexe can be found, complete with hall, open-plan bedroom/living room and shower room, ideal for guests, an au pair, or maybe a teenager. At the opposite end, there is a very useful studio - a luxurious place to paint, enjoy hobbies or, with a little imagination and work, could be used to work from home. Upstairs, there is a large storage room above.

Outside, beautifully maintained gardens extend to the front, rear and side, stocked with trees, shrubs and perennials, while glorious rolling countryside lays beyond. Set well back from the roadside by around 130ft, there is certainly no shortage of parking and, last but not least, there is also a detached double-length garage.

The appeal of this property is undeniable - a prestigious, period residence with further scope for enlargement if desired, set in an idyllic, sought after location, close to all the benefits of Berkhamsted; the perfect balance of `living the countryside dream`, while being only a short drive away from the buzz of the town when you require it.

The sought after village of Little Gaddesden lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, amidst some 5,000 acres of National Trust land.

Village facilities include a Church, village hall, shop and post office, an excellent C-of-E primary school, bowls club and a popular pub and restaurant.

Just four miles away from this idyllic setting, is the prestigious market town of Berkhamsted, located to the west of Hertfordshire. A highly desirable commuter town, Berkhamsted offers a wide range of shopping, from independent boutiques to national names such as Waitrose, Laura Ashley and Boots. The Grand Union Canal runs through the town, and there are many bars, restaurants and cafes creating something of a metropolitan ambiance.

The area has excellent transport links by road and rail. The mainline train station in Berkhamsted provides a regular and direct link to London Euston in a little over 30 minutes. Major road connections nearby include the M25 and the M1, while 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 on your doorstep, in beautiful surrounding countryside. Nearby golf courses include Ashridge, Berkhamsted and The Grove.

The area offers excellent schooling, including the independent Berkhamsted School, founded in 1541, and Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.

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.
