Full description

An absolutely delightful substantial detached Victorian lodge with immense character, which has been sympathetically enlarged and refurbished to a very high standard, nestling within grounds of approximately half an acre, at the very impressive gated entrance of the Beechwood Park Estate, near Flamstead, which is a short drive from Berkhamsted.

Description - The entrance hall of this character property has an attractive quarry tiled floor and panelled door leading into an impressive dual aspect reception room. The through sitting and dining room, with oak flooring, has a beautiful feature fireplace as its main focal point and enjoys views to the front and side over the gardens and Beechwood Park.

From an inner hallway there is access to a cloakroom and also to the very spacious kitchen/breakfast room, comprising eye and base level units with down lighting, contrasting wooden block work surfaces with a one and a half bowl sink unit, integrated fridge and dishwasher, with further space for a range-style cooker. Complete with under floor heating, this area could accommodate a large breakfast table and a comfortable sofa, whilst also benefiting from French doors which lead to a patio and garden.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor which both have en suite shower rooms and under floor heating throughout. The larger of the two bedrooms is rear aspect and has a generous range of fitted wardrobes, as well as an impressive contemporary-style en suite shower room, comprising large glass fronted shower cubicle, concealed cistern WC and wash hand basin on plinth (all with chrome fittings), chrome heated towel rail, large wall mounted mirror and shaver point.

The remaining bedroom on this level is also double aspect, with an en suite shower room, comprising large glass fronted shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and low level WC (all with chrome fittings), chrome heated towel rail and shaver point.

The first floor landing provides access to all other parts of the property, including two double bedrooms. The larger of the two is front aspect, whilst the remaining bedroom is side aspect, both of which have stunning views over the gardens and also the Beechwood Park estate. The impressive bathroom is directly adjacent these rooms and comprises a traditional roll top bath, low level WC, vanity wash hand basin, shower cubicle (all with chrome fittings) and a heated towel rail.

This sympathetically refurbished and enlarged property is well presented throughout and includes a large number of character features, including a most impressive feature fireplace within the principal reception room, attractive windows and stunning decorative facias within the main gables.

Outside - Set within an area of outstanding natural beauty, and in very attractive gardens measuring approximately half an acre, there are lawns that extend from the front, via the side, to the rear, well stocked borders and patio areas providing a perfect vantage point to enjoy it from. There is an attractive beech hedged perimeter to the front and also a driveway leading to a garage building, which has been converted to provide a studio/office with power and light, insulated walls and under floor heating. The remainder of the garage also provides usual storage.

For commuting, the M1, Junction 9 is just under three miles distant, the mainline station in Berkhamsted is just over seven miles distant and Harpenden station is eight miles away.
