A stunning family home positioned in a semi rural location yet only 4 miles from central Berkhamsted. Measuring in excess of 4000 sq ft and backing directly onto rolling countryside, the property also has planning permission to extend to the side.

Ground Floor - The extensive front driveway leads you to the front door, which opens into a large well proportioned reception hall and gives a real sense of the space in this stunning family home. From the entrance hall a door opens to a study that overlooks the front, and a door to the cloakroom with stairs rising to a first floor galleried landing. Double doors open into the main reception room, with three windows to the rear immediately drawing you to the countryside views beyond. There is a wood burning stove for cosy nights in at the property, and double doors opening into a large dining room which is dual aspect with windows to the side and front. The principal reception room leads into the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a lovely box window framing the views to the rear and a door to the side opens to the garden. The kitchen has a doorway opening into a utility room and a further useful store room. Moving to the opposite side of the ground floor is a good size family room, and a door opening to a large study with it's own front door - ideal if you are taking clients for meetings. A ground floor shower room completes this floor and makes the study an ideal space if you have an elderly relative staying over.

First Floor - At the first floor galleried landing, a right turn takes you to the family bathroom which is fitted with a white four piece suite including separate shower cubicle and bath, and to the guest bedroom which is dual aspect with windows to the side and front. There is also a walk-in eaves storage cupboard - the ideal space to store suitcases, etc and is easy to access. Continuing down the landing to the left, there are a further three double bedrooms with the guest room boasting an ensuite shower room. At the far end of the first floor is a stunning principal bedroom suite with windows to the front and side, and fitted with an extensive range of wardrobes providing ample space for all your clothes. A door opens to a large ensuite bathroom with feature porthole window to the rear, and fitted with a white five piece suite including twin sink basins.

Outside - A sweeping 360 degree block paved driveway with a central island is planted with mature specimen trees. The driveway leads to the double garage with a metal up and over door. A pedestrian gate opens to a garden to the side which is laid to lawn and leads to the main garden that is directly at the rear of the property. As well as a large area of lawn, there is a block paved patio to enjoy the south facing sunshine throughout the day until the sun sets. The garden is fully enclosed to all aspects by a range of fencing.

Planning Permission - The property has planning permission to convert the current double garage into a home gym and to add another double garage to the side. Over the top of the garage this would then allow the construction of an ensuite bathroom to the second bedroom. Further the plans involve relocating the utility room into the store room and knocking this whole area through to the dining room to create a superb front to back kitchen/dining/family room. See planning application 21/01346/FHA
