With all the features a family could want, and on the market chain free, this detached residence offers the opportunity of fantastic space both inside and out, situated in a superb village location.

A more traditional build, the property has benefitted from extensions, modern updates and recent refits, culminating in the incredible family home you see today. The current owners have lived here for six years, knowing from first sight that this was somewhere special. It ticked every box.

Moving to Marston Moretaine from miles away, the area was brand new to them, and each year they’ve discovered more on the doorstep—quite literally as opposite the house is a footpath to Stewartby Lake and Millenium Country Park, which provides beautiful scenery for daily dog walks and long weekend wanders. Within the original part of Marston Moretaine, local schooling and a wide variety of amenities are within easy walking distance, and a swift drive away are the market towns of Ampthill and Woburn, the county town of Bedford, and retail and entertainment destinations such as Interchange, Milton Keynes and Rushden Lakes. The nearest station for access into London is Flitwick, and Marston Moretaine is well connected to major roads.

As well as the best of both in terms of location, the property delivers on the best of both in many aspects too. It has space in abundance for entertaining a full guestlist, but also a warm, homely feel for quiet nights in as a family. The open-plan area in particular is perfect for parties, with the possibility to take things outside via the French doors onto the deck when the sun appears.

The contemporary kitchen has a range of cream gloss cabinets, integrated appliances including a wine fridge, a Neff induction hob, Zanussi ovens, a Siemens microwave and an Indesit dishwasher, and a central island giving casual seating plus plenty of surfacing for spreading out platters of food. There’s ample capacity for a large dining table, and there’s a fireplace with a log burner in the snug area for having drinks after dinner.

Separate from this heart of the home is the substantial lounge, with a huge inglenook fireplace that takes centre stage. Imagine cosy Christmases here, as well as summer days with the sliding doors open. Along the hallway with its solid wood flooring is a flexible room currently an office/gym, with potential as a sixth bedroom if needed. Opposite is the cloakroom and the utility room (the owners changed the property from oil to gas, and the boiler is in the utility).

Upstairs, the accommodation is just as ideal for a family, with five double bedrooms, a dressing room to the primary suite, and two fabulous four-piece bathrooms, both replaced in recent years with egg-shaped freestanding baths and double walk-in showers. The primary suite is like staying in a hotel, and is a real sanctuary, especially when sat on the balcony in the sunshine.

When they came to view the house back in 2018, the owners were surprised not only by the space on offer internally, but by the size and scope of the plot. To the front, a private 6 car driveway with electric gates, a tall magnolia tree stands to one side, and there’s low laurel hedging on the front step. To the rear is a wrap around south facing garden, decking to one side, and a patio to the back of the house and down the other side, affording various seating options for everyone. Mature bamboo, laurel and conifers provide privacy, but the garden is relatively low maintenance aside from mowing the lawn, freeing up time to spend as a family enjoying your new home here in Marston Moretaine.
