Reference: 36211_28486283


Located in the very centre of one of Britain's most picturesque villages, a historically important Grade II listed cottage which sits on a plot of 0.3 acres surrounded by fields and Ashridge Forest.

The property itself has remained within the same family for the last 37 years, a testament to the wonderful nature of such a lovely property. The accommodation is extremely flexible and enhanced by a range of outbuildings to include a home office, studio with cloakroom, carport and a shed and greenhouse.

Bursting with character to include exposed timber beams to a number of ceilings and walls and several working fireplaces the living room enjoys dual aspect lighting to the front and rear and opens directly to both the dining room and the well appointed kitchen/breakfast room which is further complimented by a separate utility room and a walk in pantry.

The first floor has a spacious landing area with doors opening to the master bedroom which is dual aspect and benefits from a generous ensuite bathroom with roll top bath and wet room shower. The three other bedrooms are all of generous proportions and have fitted wardrobes. A family bathroom completes the first floor.

The enchanting gardens are an ideal space for peaceful contemplation with a variety of fruit trees and a secret garden area not to mention swathes of open spaces ideal for a young family to enjoy. The gardens are fully enclosed and afford stunning views to the front and rear. A gated driveway to the rear leads to a carport and parking area for several cars.

Finally it is worthy to note that the main house benefits from an extensive cellar of full head height which could be fully converted (STNP) to provide even further accommodation should this be required either now or in the future. An internal inspection is the only way to fully appreciate this one of a kind home.

The Location - The picturesque village of Aldbury is the epitome of an English village, which retains a village green, with pond and historic stocks and whipping post. Around it clusters the church, the village shop, one of the two local pubs and a number of period cottages. It is situated on the edge of the Chiltern Hills, at the foot of a chalk escarpment, which is capped by the beech woodland of Ashridge Forest. To the north, south and east lies some 4,000 acres of National Trust Land, forming the Ashridge Estate, formerly a hunting estate of King Henry VIII and childhood residence of Queen Elizabeth I. The Estate was acquired by The National Trust in the 1920's and the magnificent woodlands and 18th century park, landscaped by Capability Brown and Humphrey Repton, is open to the public. The area lies within greenbelt countryside, designated as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Aldbury is within a short drive of both Berkhamsted and Tring, which provide an eclectic mix of interesting shops and boutiques, along with a variety of coffee houses, bistros and restaurants. Recreational and sporting facilities abound, with hockey, rugby, tennis and cricket clubs available. There is a choice of golf courses, including Stocks, Berkhamsted and the renowned course at Ashridge, whilst the internationally acclaimed health resort at Champneys is within a short drive.

Sellers Comments - Since moving into Aldbury and Rose Cottage in January 1982 we have had the great fortune and the privilege of raising our family in the most perfect environment. Aldbury, which is the smallest village in Hertfordshire has the most amazing community, with the Church, School and very active clubs and events for all ages.

An opportunity has presented itself that enables us to reunite our rather dispersed family and hence our need to relocate. All that said and done, it is true that you can take the person out of Aldbury but you will never take Aldbury out of the person. We hope that the new owners find as much love and happiness as we have had.
