If you’re searching for a substantial residence on a large plot in a prime location, here’s your opportunity to secure a forever home on one of the most sought-after roads in Bedford.
Biddenham is one of the nicest spots in our county town, situated on the quieter outskirts, yet within close proximity of major road networks and the mainline station, which has fast and frequent trains into Milton Keynes, London St Pancras and beyond, as well as to Luton and Gatwick airports. From the property, you can walk to the station in 20 minutes, drive there in just three, or cycle in five.
Also within easy reach are Bedford’s Harpur Trust schools, the beautiful Embankment and popular parks. In the town centre, you’ll find an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafés, pubs and bars, plus entertainment, shops and services. There are retail parks and supermarkets, cinemas and theatres, and Rushden Lakes and centre:mk are under half an hour away for more serious shopping.
The village of Biddenham offers a calm feel, with local amenities and nearby countryside. There’s a private hospital, a local pub, sports facilities and a pavilion, as well as a primary school and an International School.
Along Biddenham Turn, unique high-value houses sit on sprawling sites. No.16 occupies a 0.5-acre plot, tucked behind high hedging to the front, and secluded by tall evergreen trees to the rear. The predominantly south-facing garden is a blank canvas, with a full-width patio and an expansive lawn, and the gravelled frontage provides parking for a fleet of vehicles. The garage is currently used as a gym, but affords additional parking for cars that need cover. For security, there’s planning permission for pillars and gates at the entrance to the driveway.
The owners purchased this property a year ago with the aim to improve on what was a quite dated pile beforehand. It’d been under the same ownership for half a century, and over the last few months, they’ve given the house a facelift inside and out. Inside are new bathrooms, new floors and carpets, and newly painted walls and woodwork. The original feature window has been retained on the landing, filling the hallway with light, and an entrance porch has been added. The biggest change has been to the kitchen and utility room, which are now fitted in navy blue cabinetry topped with sparkling surfaces. There are also integrated appliances.
The downstairs accommodation currently consists of large, separate rooms, but could be opened up for more social spaces, especially between the kitchen and dining room. There’s annexe potential to one side ideal for multi-generational living, and possibility to extend out further to both the rear and sides (stp), which neighbours have done adding significant square footage.
This could be your chance to make your mark, create something show-stopping, and live out your dreams.
