Secluded behind high hedges, this wow-factor residence is positioned on a fantastic plot in a peaceful village location. At the edge of a small close, this property really stands out from the crowd, completely revamped both externally and internally. The aluminium windows, monocouche rendering and fabulous resin driveway emit an up-to-date aesthetic to the outside, joined with the super modern interior behind that stunning frontage.


The owner redesigned and rebuilt the home with family at the forefront, so investments were made with futureproof and family-orientated elements such as Cat 5 cabling, electric underfloor heating, LED smart strip lighting, full pressurised water system, and brand new regenerating solar panels.
Spacious rooms are decorated in a bold style, yet with a minimalist ambience throughout. We love the textural details in this home—the ‘wave’ walls, the feature stone tiling, the brand new Italian porcelain flooring, the Silestone worktops…


Light fills each room beautifully, especially the hallway with its grand full-height window and galleried landing. The open plan configuration offers brilliant room-to-room flow, notably the lounge into the kitchen/family/dining room. As well as a prime spot to watch the football according to Mr, the lounge benefits from a multi-fuel log burning stove that “really heats the house up”.


Accessed from the hall and the lounge, the open plan space to the rear of the property is an incredible expanse for enjoying family time, as a venue for celebrations, or just to appreciate the garden through the bi-fold doors. The kitchen is very unique, with a horseshoe-shaped arrangement and bespoke Metris cabinetry. Integrated appliances include a fridge, a dishwasher, two ovens and two hobs, great for cooking together. There’s also a sink and drainer with both a Blanco tap and a Quooker boiling water tap. The adjacent utility provides space for further appliances.

Well-known for their NYE parties, the bar was the perfect addition to the accommodation. Set off the open plan, there’s fitted shelving and a seating area, with lots of room for guests.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, three en suites and the family bathroom. The master is capacious, with curved walls and features geode-style headboard tiling. There’s a dressing room to one side with ample storage for clothes and shoes, and a window to the rear looks out over the garden. Bedrooms two and three are also substantial, with mirrored layouts encompassing dressing and study areas. The en suite and family bathroom are fitted in contemporary suites, with his and hers sinks, a double walk-in shower to the en suite, and a gorgeous freestanding bath to the family bathroom. There are identical en suite shower rooms to bedrooms two and three, plus a shower room to the ground floor, totalling five bathrooms.


And the accommodation doesn’t end there. To the front of the plot is a self-contained one-bedroom two-storey annexe. This has been used for gatherings away from the main house but is the ideal extra abode for relatives or older children. The adjoining double garage is made for storing a sports car, or a ride-on mower, whichever is preferred. The secure electric door is button-controlled for quick access.

The garden is private, extensive, and zoned into areas, including the relaxing patio with built-in speakers and lighting, the generous lawn for playing sports, and the allotment for the green-fingered. The owner’s dad tends to his fruit, veg and flora, while one of their daughters has collected plums from the Victoria plum tree over the summer to distribute to the villagers. The size of the garden allows for a supplementary construction, perhaps an additional annexe, a home office, or a fully kitted-out gym.


Wilstead is a quiet village a few miles from Bedford centre. Connections to the town centre, surrounding villages and large centres such as London and Milton Keynes are easily reached via road, and by rail from either Bedford or Flitwick station. The Wixams development in the village will soon see a new station, which will be a stone’s throw from the house.

The village itself has “everything you need”—local schooling, a Post Office, a pharmacy, takeaways, and of course, two “lovely” pubs. There are numerous countryside walks or bike rides too. Most importantly, the owner tells us there’s a “great community” here, so living in this house, in this village, is a winning combination.
