Wake up to wonderful rural views! Castles are pleased to present this beautiful 3 bedroom semi-detached character property. Situated in a highly desirable lane, it is a fine example of late 1920’s architecture, with high ceilings, and well-proportioned rooms, offering spacious living throughout, and conveniently situated near to local services and transport.
On entering through the front door, you will be wowed by the large entrance hall, smart wooden floors, leading into the ground floor rooms, and cosy log burner in the living room, for those cold winter evenings.
The property has a good sized functional, but smart kitchen, with separate dining area, with French doors leading out onto the rear garden. Extending or merging these areas would represent a great opportunity to put your own stamp on the property, to achieve your dream home.
All three bedrooms are bright and spacious. The south-facing spacious master bedroom boasts amazing rural views. Bedroom 2 has plenty of built-in storage, and overlooks the pretty garden. Bedroom 3 could be used as a bedroom, or home office.
The large, modern family bathroom is fully tiled, with a separate roll top bath and large walk in shower.
Loft space: The loft space of this property is huge, and offers potential to develop into a bedroom with en-suit and views over the moor.
Outside space: The property benefits from an exceptionally large, established, and pretty rear garden, comprising a lawn, mature trees (including fruit trees), and shrubs, a cottage garden, private patio area, pond, and a large (10’ x 12’) shed.
The property has it’s own driveway for at least two cars, with a lawn and beech hedge, affording privacy for the front of the house.
The property borders open countryside and boasts some of the best views in Boxmoor, overlooking Boxmoor Trust land, which will not be built upon. Bequithed by Eliszabeth I to residents of Boxmoor, and managed by the Boxmoor Trust since 1594, the Trust land around Boxmoor is free for Boxmoor residents to use and enjoy, with just over a quarter being common land. The property resides in one of the most well established roads in the village, overlooking the Grand Union Canal, River Bulbourne and the Trust hills beyond, and also borders Ashridge Forest, the largest National Trust managed forest in England.
Chaulden has its own neighbourhood shopping centre, and at the bottom of Chaulden Lane there is the historic Three Horseshoes canal side pub, adjacent to a quaint swing bridge over the Grand Union canal. Chaulden Lane is thought to preserve the route of Akeman Street, the Roman Road along the Bulbourne valley, which was lined by holly hedges, from Chaulden Lane to Berkhamsted. Boxmoor Village has a range of shopping facilities and amenities, including the Village Hall and Playhouse, restaurants, public houses and Leisure Centre. The Moor is a beautiful open space with a cricket pitch and the Grand Union Canal and River Bulbourne running through it. The property is conveniently located to the mainline railway station, which offers an excellent service to London Euston (26 mins) and also to the M25 and M1 motorways.
