Full descriptionA very rare opportunity to acquire one of Berkhamsted’s most magnificent Regency-style homes, which has been recently refurbished and decorated to a very high and sympathetic specification, whilst benefiting from attractive gardens and parking, situated within the heart of Berkhamsted, with literally everything on the doorstep.
Description - This breath-taking home has a wealth of character features throughout and creates a welcoming feel immediately on entry via the entrance hall, which has a mosaic tiled floor and double doors leading to a fabulous drawing room, which, as previously mentioned, was formerly two rooms. This room has views over the front and rear gardens, with two fireplaces as its main focal point, and the most stunning coving and ceiling roses, which are also present in other parts of the house. There are attractive exposed wooden floors, which extend from this room into the kitchen/breakfast room. This presents a feeling of space and has been completed to a very high specification. The kitchen/breakfast room includes bespoke eye and base level Shaker-style units with thick square edge contrasting granite work surfaces with upstands and Belfast sink. There are integrated appliances which include a Rangemaster dual fuel cooker with twin ovens and a five ring gas hob, including a wok burner and plate warmer, with canopy above, there is also an American-style fridge/freezer with icemaker and water dispenser and an integrated dishwasher. A feature of this room is its attractive bay window, which is directly adjacent to a wood and coal burning stove. The kitchen area in turn leads to a utility room, which has a quarry tiled floor and has been completed in the same style as the kitchen, with generous built-in storage and granite work surfaces, a sink with drainer, plumbing and space for an automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a door leading to the garden and an additional door to the cloakroom with high level WC, wall mounted wash hand basin with tiling behind.
From the kitchen/breakfast room access can be gained to the basement/family room, which could also be an ideal playroom or a relaxation point. This area has a window and mood lighting.
A staircase leading to the first floor landing has an exposed wooden handrail with white painted spindles. The first floor landing provides access to all other areas of the property, including the master bedroom, which has the most amazing, large feature window, high ceilings and newly installed bespoke luxury fitted wardrobes. There is illuminated hanging space, glass fronted solid wood drawers and shoe racks. Another feature of this room is its very attractive fireplace. The second bedroom has views over the rear garden and there is a fitted bookcase and fireplace. The third bedroom is at the rear of the property, enjoying further views over the garden. The fourth bedroom is a superb, brand new loft conversion. This is a large and spacious room with the full benefit of overlooking the rear garden. The bathroom has been recently completed in a contemporary-style, comprising a roll top bath with cascade filler and shower attachment, oversized shower cubicle, concealed cistern WC and vanity wash hand basin (all with chrome fittings), chrome heated towel rail, mainly tiled walls and matching floor with underfloor heating.
The property has been further enhanced by high ceilings with magnificent handmade coving and ceiling roses, providing the property with a sense of grandeur, sash windows with secondary glazing and shutters, original wooden panelling and exposed wooden flooring, new carpets, remote control lighting, Conservation-style radiators served by a new boiler, and period fireplaces, all completed in a Regency-style, to replicate the grandeur that is only found in this style of home.
Outside - There is a large and private south facing rear garden, which is unusual for this town centre location. The garden has two sections, the main part being remodelled and planted this summer, providing a colourful and traditional garden with an abundance of established plants. The second garden has been designed to offer a private, peaceful place and this area includes a large decked area and an additional patio, divided off from the main garden with fencing and trellis, and there is a covered area. The property has a parking space for one car, the front garden is currently planted; however, it could be converted into further parking, subject to satisfying the usual consents, and in a similar fashion to the neighbouring property.

Nearby schools include the Berkhamsted School for both boys and girls and Ashlyns Secondary School. The mainline station with its fast and frequent service to London (Euston approximately 35 minutes) is within walking distance and easy access can be gained to the A41 bypass, providing a fast link to the M25 motorway at Kings Langley (Junction 20) and from there the national motorway network and international airports.
