The village of Little Gaddesden is very picturesque and is situated high in the Chiltern Hills. Alderton Drive, along with its neighbouring road, Golf Club Drive, are considered to be the most sought after private roads, which are dotted around the Ashridge Estate. The village of Little Gaddesden comprises an interesting collection of period and individual houses and cottages, and boasts a village shop with post office outlet and a gastro pub called The Bridgewater Arms. There is a primary school within the village along with a tennis club and cricket pitch. There is also the very popular Ashridge Golf Course, just 0.8 of a mile from the property. The renowned Ashridge Estate, which comprises some 7 square miles of woodland and common land, offers a labyrinth of footpaths and bridleways.

The market towns of Berkhamsted and Tring are around 5 miles away and both provide a varied selection of shops, boutiques, restaurants and super markets.

Senior education can be found in Berkhamsted and slightly further afield in Harpenden, St Albans and Hemel Hempstead, depending on whether state or private is one's preference. Berkhamsted has the renowned Berkhamsted School, which is co-educational (4 to 18 years) and The Tring Park School For The Performing Arts can be found in the centre of Tring. Preparatory schools in the vicinity include Beechwood Park, Westbrook Hay and Lockers Park.

The property
This is the first time Cherry Dell has entered the open market since being built approximately 60 years ago. Set in wonderful mature grounds adjoining the National Trust Ashridge Estate, Cherry Dell really is a 'little gem'. The property is situated towards the end of a long tree lined private road in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers great potential to extend or even replace, subject to planning permission.

As one will note on the floor plan, the accommodation is set principally over the ground floor and all rooms enjoy lovely views over the gardens. Cherry Dell has been very well looked after over the years, although today, does require a degree of updating.

Cherry Dell took its name from the small dell set within the gardens, which is now recognised as an established pond with a 'Japanese garden' influence. The gardens wrap around the house and feature an abundance of mature trees and shrubs, many being of an indigenous variety. There are large areas of lawn, which extend throughout the gardens, making for lovely walks.

Around the gardens, a number of individual structures can be found including a thatched roof summer house, a traditional summer house, greenhouses and a large carport/store. There are 2 separate garages, one having a large store attached.

Mains water and electricity. Oil heating and private drainage

Acreage: 1.6 Acres
