This captivating dwelling seamlessly merges historical charm with contemporary living, a testament to a meticulous renovation undertaken by its current owners. The fusion of timeless architectural elements and modern design renders this dwelling truly remarkable.
Upon entering, a flagstone floored hallway leads to a spacious kitchen/dining area adorned with a Duck Egg Blue Aga, complemented by a separate utility space and a downstairs cloakroom/shower room. The left wing of the residence comprises a sitting room, family room, and a connecting elongated conservatory, enhanced by a central fireplace. A versatile study or fourth bedroom completes this level.
Ascending the staircase reveals three ample double bedrooms. The family bathroom exudes elegance with its standalone bathtub and walk in shower. The primary suite boasts an equally attractive en suite shower room and a fabulous walk in wardrobe.
Nestled back from the road, the cottage is accessible via a charming, shared gravel driveway. The frontage encompasses a generously sized garden area and a driveway accommodating multiple vehicles, leading to a double garage.
The secluded rear garden, characterised by its lush lawn, mature trees, and shrubbery, offers a haven of privacy and discovery for children. The enchanting ambiance is often serenaded by birdsong, fostering an atmosphere of tranquillity. This outdoor space boasts historical significance, as evidenced by a scattering of ancient gravestones.
While enjoying seclusion, the property is still conveniently positioned close to amenities such as the local post office, convenience store, and village school, all accessible by foot. Nearby Tring is a mere ten-minute drive away.
This property is being offered for sale without an upper chain.
Situated in a highly sought-after Buckinghamshire village bordering Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, the village boasts exquisite examples of Tudor architecture, particularly around the village green. The village rests on the periphery of a 5,000-acre expanse of National Trust land, featuring landmarks like Pitstone Windmill and Ivinghoe Beacon.
Excellent transport connections include the A41 at Tring, which provides a direct dual carriageway link to the M25 (J20). Tring also boasts its own mainline train station with swift, direct service to London Euston in approximately 35 minutes.
The village offers a range of amenities, including a recreational ground, tea shop, church, and a traditional public house. Nearby towns like Tring and Berkhamsted offer a blend of boutiques and coffee shops, while Hemel Hempstead and Aylesbury feature expansive shopping centres, department stores, multiplex cinemas, and extensive leisure facilities.
The local schooling options are superb, with Brookmead Primary School catering to children aged 4 to 11, and the village falling within the catchment area for prestigious Grammar Schools in Aylesbury.
