4 bedroom Detached House for sale: Kings Langley, Hertfordshire
Only four families have enjoyed living in York Ridge since it was built in 1934. The vendors have extended and refurbished throughout taking care to restore and preserve as many original features as possible including the parquet flooring and the original fireplace.
The spacious reception hall welcomes you into the property with doors opening to a cloakroom, study and living room. Glass double doors lead to the family space and beyond a bespoke kitchen diner complete with underfloor heating, large island, wine cooler, steam oven, and instant hot tap. The bifolding doors allow the space to continue into the south facing garden. A utility-boot room off the kitchen leads to the drying room and the garage.
The first floor boasts 4 double bedrooms, 3 with south facing panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room and a bank of wardrobes through which extensive eaves storage can easily be accessed.
Externally the drive accommodates several cars. The last remaining walls of the Palace of Kings Langley sit in the north west corner of the property. There is side access to the rear garden, which is laid to lawn. A summerhouse occupies the far corner of the garden, just beside the secret gate which leads to the fields beyond. Young visitors particularly enjoy the hedge house'.
Kings Langley Village - Kings Langley is a friendly village with a population of around 5000 nestled in the Hertfordshire countryside, yet only 22 miles from central London, which is easily accessible from the village train station in 25 minutes. A regular bus service runs through the village connecting Watford to Aylesbury. The M25 is also on the doorstep, with Heathrow and Luton airports both being within 25 minutes drive.
The village retains a real community feel, evident along the high street by the almost exclusive presence of independent retailers; a health shop, a butchers, an art gallery, a deli, a gift shop and a coffee shop, just mention a few. On the edge of the village Wayside farm sells fresh produce and delicious jersey milk. This choice is boosted further by a monthly high street market.
A doctors' surgery, dentist, optician, osteopath, pharmacy, library, post office and spar cater for practical living, locally.
The village is proud of its nurseries, primary school and secondary school. Further afield are the Watford Grammar Schools and a host of well respected independent schools including Westbrook Hay, York House and Berkhamsted School.
Within the village there are a wide variety of groups and clubs catering for all ages and interests; a dance and drama school, toddler groups, a choir, football team, cricket club, pilates studio and a yarn bombing group - who regularly decorate the high street with their colourful creations. The Community Centre regularly hosts village events and the Summer Carnival and Christmas Lights switch-on are firm calendar fixtures.
A few minutes walk from any point in the village and you'll find yourself in stunning countryside. Alternatively see if you can spot the resident herons or King Langley's own Loch Ness Monster as you amble or cycle along the peaceful canal that runs through the centre of the village. East will take you to Apsley and Hemel Hempstead and west will take you through the grounds of London's Country Hotel, The Grove. No less than 10 pubs, restaurants or cafes in the village will be delighted to refuel you on your return!
If you manage to exhaust Kings Langley's opportunities a short drive takes you to Watford, which has everything you'd expect from a large town. The town centre has recently completed at £150m regeneration project; the enlarged Intu shopping and leisure centre will leave even die hard shoppers spoilt for choice. Watford is also home to The Hornets Premier League football team.
