Kitchen with Stone worktops and high end appliances
Full property description
Draped in the most wonderful blanket of wisteria, Anchor Cottage might just be the prettiest cottage in Boxmoor. A beautiful cream exterior gives way to an equally charming but modern interior with a real twist of luxury that couldn’t have been imagined when it was built over 200 years ago.
Push open the teal front door and a sense of home immediately washes over you. An L-shaped reception room offers a great deal of space with a wood burning stove that’s sure to keep the chill off on a cold winters night. Walking through the reception room a spacious, light and bright kitchen/diner is located at the rear of the property which has, recently had bi-fold doors installed to drink in the oasis that is the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted to an exceptional standard with quartz work-surfaces, a range of cabinets, and high end appliances. This is a great entertaining space and is sure to be the destination of choice for family and friends to enjoy good food, drink, laughter and love, that is if the new custodian wishes to share their lovely new surroundings. In addition to these rooms is a large utility room with the space to hide the washing away when a glass of wine is more important than another load of washing. The property also offers a downstairs cloakroom which is accessed off the inner hallway with a staircase which leads down to the basement and to the first floor.
The award winning rear garden has been superbly landscaped with a visually interesting use of materials and plants. The space combines a lawned area with a formal dining space as well as a less formal seating area. The current owners recently installed a work from home space, clad in beautiful cedar wood which is ideal for anyone that has the requirement for a separate work space, home gym or a den for teenagers. The sellers have also built a detached garage.
The first floor of this family home is surprisingly generous with 4 double bedrooms. The master suite is located at the rear of the property with dual aspect windows which bathes the room in natural light with a wall of built in wardrobes to the right hand side. Off of the master suite is a large, 4 piece en-suite bathroom with a walk in shower and bath. Three further double bedrooms are provided, with a large family bathroom with walk in shower and bath.
It is believed that it was originally 2 workers cottages that over time were combined to make a substantial home in excess of 2000 sq feet. Anchor Cottage is a move straight in opportunity with the sellers not only maintaining this home to an impeccable standard but also sympathetically upgrading, where necessary. Such an upgrade being the sash windows which have been replaced with new timber sash windows of exceptional craftsmanship.
Anchor Cottage is in a tucked away position which makes it very safe to families as there are no cars passing the front of the property. It is also ideally located for the village centre which offers a post office, convenience store, hairdresser, coffee shop, florist and country pubs. For those with families the Boxmoor Trust is an open space which is just a minute or twos walk from the cottage with a cricket pitch, children’s play area and Grand Union Canal. Within a few minutes walk is the much sought after Hemel Hempstead School, a very highly rated secondary school along with a selection of infant schools and nurseries. For those that need the train, the station is just a few minutes walk from the property.
