Appledown, Bedford Road, Marston Moretaine, Bedford
Appledown, a semi-detached period cottage, situated on a 0.10-acre plot (Sts) in the sought after Central Bedfordshire Village of Marston Moretaine.
Our clients have meticulously maintained, upgraded and improved the property throughout their ownership, making this stunning home a real turn-key purchase.
Appledown makes you feel its period charm with a wealth of features, including exposed beam work, a solid fuel burner that nestles within a beautiful two-sided fireplace, exposed brickwork and much more.
The accommodation is well appointed with 3 generous reception rooms which flow really well throughout the ground floor. The front entrance leads into the dining room with openings off to the rear, and both sides paving the way to the living spaces.
The dual aspect living room spans the property's depth, featuring the solid fuel burner and fireplace providing the centrepiece for those cosy winter evenings in front of the fire. The room narrows slightly to the rear of the house to create a wonderful snug area overlooking the garden.
The bespoke handmade kitchen has oak units professionally painted in Boringdon Green, complemented by a gorgeous dark granite work surface. There are integrated appliances, including a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a glorious range cooker with a double oven and hob.
Accessed off of the Kitchen is the utility room which leads onto the three piece ground floor shower room and also access to the rear garden. Last but by no means least the family room completes the ground floor, with a beautiful bay window to the front of the property bathing the room in natural light, in those chilly winter months you might like to make use of the gas fireplace.
On the first floor there are three generous bedrooms, (the main and second bedroom are both doubles) and a luxury family bathroom.
The main bedroom is an excellent size, the room has the rare benefit of an open mezzanine area and a walk in wardrobe. The family bathroom is a luxury three-piece suite with a stunning cast iron roll top bath the centrepiece of the room.
Outside, the generous plot wraps around the house, providing off road parking to the frontage for up to three cars, there is a large wooden workshop complete with a working sink to the side and then the rear of the property has the most wonderful landscaped garden.
There are three main areas to the garden, a lawned area which could be perfect for pets or children, a large paved patio area laid to gorgeous Indian sand stone and finally a private area away from the rest of the garden with it's own water feature which also has a good size storage shed.
