Situated in the heart of the popular village of Aldbury yet in a tucked-away position with generous offstreet parking, Eucalyptus Cottage is a beautiful and surprisingly spacious three bedroom character cottage which is believed to date back to the 1850’s. The property is well presented throughout and retains many character features including exposed timbers and fireplaces with wood burning stoves to principal reception rooms. The property is located a stones’ throw from the vibrant village centre with its two popular local pubs and village shop/post office. Albury itself is conveniently located for transport links including Tring mainline railway station allowing easy access to London Euston.
The property can be accessed via either the original front door leading into the sitting room or via the side door into the utility/boot room. The utility room offers a useful space with fitted cupboards, sink and space for washing machine and dryer. There is a door to front and rear garden and also a shower room with w/c. Beyond the utility room is the bespoke kitchen with granite work surface, integrated appliances and breakfast bar which in turn is open plan to the dining room with vaulted ceiling and French doors to the rear garden and also the family room with feature fireplace and log burning stove. This area is the real heart of the home and provides an excellent space in which to entertain or to gather as a family. The separate sitting room is of equally good proportions and is full of character with its exposed timbers and feature fireplace with log burning stove.
Stairs lead from the family room to the first floor landing which provides access to three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. All bedrooms feature far reaching views either to Ashridge forest to the rear of the property or across the village to the front. The family bathroom has a w/c, basin and bath with shower above.
The property is approached via a long driveway offering generous off-street parking for several cars which in turn leads to a single garage and the front gardens to the left hand side. The current owner has obtained planning permission to replace the current with a new tandem garage ref 4/00820/19/FHA. To the rear and side of the property the garden features two further areas of lawn and two patios creating flexible and generous outdoor space where one can enjoy sun at any time of the day. There is a brick built home office/study accessed via the rear garden and an additional shed and summer house both of which have power and light.
