This charming cottage, believed to be around 300 years old, has been extended by the owner over thirty years in a sympathetic style using some antique materials to maintain its character. It is the end one of three cottages, but the nearly half acre garden wrapping around three sides and the peaceful rural location makes it feel like a detached house.
Despite the rural location there are excellent transport links and local facilities. Inside there is a spacious kitchen with granite worktops, chestnut units, and range cooker, a dining area and views over the spectacular garden. The dining room has French windows and oak floor, and there are two beamed studies, one with Gothic oak windows rescued from Kings Langley village school c. 1832. The sitting room has a Jetmaster open log fire in the original inglenook fireplace (with a logstore outside). The convenient family bathroom has bath and electric shower, heated towel rail and underfloor heating.
Up the original elm stairs are two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and a mezzanine, and one with a beamed attic with Velux windows. The dressing room has built in wardrobes. A second set of stairs rises from the kitchen to bedroom three.
The windows were replaced in 2016 with traditional wooden double glazed windows. There are numerous built in cupboards and shelves. Behind the house, the detached studio has a vaulted ceiling, kitchen area, bathroom, and patio doors to the meadow.
Flaunden is one of the prettiest villages in Hertfordshire, bordering the Chilterns AONB. It is a friendly community with a church, village hall and two award winning pubs. The attractive neighbouring villages of Sarratt, Chipperfield and Bovingdon have a library, GP surgery, pubs, village shops, primary schools, and post offices.
The towns of Rickmansworth, Amersham and Hemel Hempstead are all within a 6 mile drive.
There are excellent schools, sport and entertainment facilities. There is easy access to the M25 (4 miles) and M1, with Heathrow around 18.4 miles. The Metropolitan line at Chalfont and Latimer is 2.9 miles (42 minutes to Baker Street, 35 minutes to Marylebone) and British Rail at Hemel Hempstead is 4.5 miles (30 minutes to Euston).
The front garden is pretty and intimate with a small pond and seat. The delightful and mature side and rear gardens are fully fenced and enjoy a selection of trees and shrubs of varying heights and seasonal colours. Outside the kitchen and dining room there is a spacious patio for relaxing and entertaining.
There is parking at the front, and the metal gates (with cabling for electric gate opener) access the gravelled driveway leading to the studio, and additional parking.
