A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial family residence, set in a wonderful plot of just over one and a quarter acres with stunning rural views. Whilst requiring modernisation, the property retains a wealth of character and charm, affording original parquet flooring, Crittal windows and several large bay windows overlooking the southerly aspect gardens.
The property is approached to the front via an attractive oak door and portico, which in turn leads into a reception hall with cloakroom. There are two particularly impressive reception rooms; the 27' sitting room enjoys a dual aspect via a large bay window and French doors opening onto the side garden. The adjoining 21' dining room also provides views of the rear garden in addition to offering an open feature fireplace. The versatile third reception room has previously been utilised as a study and an additional bedroom, with the added benefit of an adjacent bathroom. Situated at the heart of the house is a kitchen area that boasts an Aga and offers a range of cupboards, drawers and a sink unit. Beyond the kitchen is an inner vestibule that provides access to the garage, utility room and boiler room.
Situated on the first floor are 4 bedrooms that all look onto the rear gardens and enjoy far reaching views over neighbouring farmland. These include a luxurious master suite, incorporating a 21' bedroom with bay window, an en suite bathroom and dressing room. The guest bedroom (at the opposite end of the house) enjoys a small balcony accessed via casement doors. Completing the accommodation is a family bathroom suite and a separate WC.
The property occupies an appealing position in this picturesque Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the fringes of Tring, Wendover and Halton Woods set high in the Chilterns. The surrounding villages and countryside offer a network of footpaths and bridleways providing some of the best walking and riding in the Chilterns, together with several popular Public Houses/Restuarants. Tring and Berkhamsted both offer a fast and frequent rail services to London Euston; the Chiltern line runs from Wendover in to Marylebone Station; whilst there is a tube connection to Baker Street from Chesham and good links to the M25 from the A41. Tring, Berkhamsted, Wendover and Chesham all offer a good range of everyday shopping facilities.
The property is approached via a sweeping gravel driveway with ample turning space and parking. The grounds to the front and side feature a variety of mature native and specimen trees, providing a high degree of seclusion and privacy. Towards the rear of the house is a large expanse of lawn, bordered in part by well stocked flower and shrub beds, together with a further variety of trees.
