Full Details

This deceptively spacious home has been recently refurbished and meticulously maintained, and is positioned in a popular location for families, on the doorstep of schools, amenities and greenspace.

The current owners have made many changes since they purchased the property 30 years ago. They’re only the second owners ever to live here, and it was very much in its original 1970s state when they moved in. They were newlyweds then, and have since raised four children in this fantastic family home.

The most transformative period came around 16 years ago. Five bedrooms were added to a first floor, and this meant everyone had a space to call their own. The primary bedroom gives plenty of room for a big bed, built-in wardrobing for storage, and a cosy corner for quiet reading, while the remaining bedrooms each have space for furniture, and one has built-in wardrobes. Also on the first floor is a modern and immaculate shower room, with chrome fixtures and fittings, monochrome tiling, and a sparkly splashback in the shower. The owners have had plans drawn by an architect (but not submitted to the council) to extend over the garage, which would introduce an en suite to the accommodation.

Downstairs has seen works to modernise and update, with much of this done over the last year, and the boiler installed two years ago. Three years ago, the kitchen was replaced, now fitted in contemporary white gloss cabinetry, grey concrete-effect surfaces and splashbacks, and a composite sink with pull-out and drinking water taps. There’s space for every appliance, breakfast bar seating for casual meals, and capacity to cook together.

The reception rooms cater for everything, both as a family and with a full guestlist. There’s circular flow and generous square footage, and big windows and dual aspects bring all-important natural light. For those working from home, there’s an office overlooking the neighbouring green, and this could be a sixth bedroom if needed, situated opposite the downstairs bathroom.

The room to the front is where the owners spend the most time, and they’ve zoned this into sitting and dining areas. Here you can host with ease, with a large table to sit everyone, a snug area for stretching out afterwards, and a log burner in a brick fireplace for warmth. The lounge across the back has two sets of French doors onto the patio, perfect for indoor-outdoor living in the summer.

The garden, through the French doors or via the side door, is low maintenance for high enjoyment, and screened for privacy by laurel hedging to the boundaries, and tall trees on the neighbouring green. There’s a neat lawn, extensive paving to the back and side of the house, plus built-in seating ideal for barbeques. There are spots available for sheds, and a hardstanding affords space for a summerhouse. To the front of the plot, a block-paved driveway and a garage provide parking for multiple cars, and there’s gated side access to the garden.

The property’s position is next door to and opposite greenspace, within steps of local amenities, and within walking distance of Bedford town centre, where there’s something for everyone, whether that be food and drink, pubs and parks, or entertainment and education. For families, there’s a wide choice of renowned schools in the area, including independents, and for commuters, the mainline station is just 1.5 miles from the address. The owners have appreciated walks around the nearby allotments and nature reserve, lunchbreaks out in the fresh air, and of course all this home and this location have given them and their family over the last 30 years.
