Property description

Sterling Estate Agents Select & Country Homes department are delighted to present this rarely available detached character home to the open market. It is situated in a prime position only 1 mile from the mainline train station of Berkhamsted and within striking distance of all local amenities including the High Street and local schools.

This traditionally constructed home has been beautifully maintained over the years to provide a wonderful family home. Due to the extensive size of the plot we believe the property lends itself to scope for substantial extension by means of side or rear extension and attic conversion (stp). The extensive rear garden has a raised patio area with steps down to an area laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees providing a substantial amount of privacy and fully enclosed by fencing.

On the ground floor there is a wonderful dual aspect lounge with an working fireplace, a formal dining room, kitchen, study and spacious reception hall. Further additions include a utility room and cloakroom. A spacious, light and airy first floor landing has doors opening to four double bedrooms and to the family bathroom which is fitted with a three piece suite. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and dressing room.

Early viewings are strongly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Shelford has accommodation to suit a host of family requirements and benefits from a mature plot of circa ¼ of an acre positioned on a premier established road within walking distance of both the town centre and the mainline train station yet with the feel of a countryside location with established gardens and mature trees.
