This superb semi-detached seeks new owners, whether you’re setting up home, starting a family, even downsizing or looking for an investment.
Back in 2020, the current and only owners, purchasing their first home together, were set on finding a newbuild property on a well-provisioned development. They struck lucky here! Built by David Wilson, the Marston Fields development benefits from 11 acres of open space, alongside a long list of local amenities.
Coming from Chelmsford and moving during the pandemic, Captain Tom put Marston Moretaine on the map for them. You’re anything but isolated, with the village enjoying immediate convenience and major connections, with everything you could need on the doorstep.
Marston Moretaine provides essentials such as schools and shops, doctors and dentists, Co-ops and cafés, and for dinners, drinks and date nights, Ampthill, Bedford and Milton Keynes are each only a short drive away. Just over a mile from the house is the Forest of Marston Vale, and fun further afield includes Gulliver’s Land, Woburn Safari Park, and National Trust and English Heritage sites. For commuters, day-trippers and holidaymakers, trains from Bedford and Flitwick run to London via Luton and onto Gatwick and Brighton.
Aside from location, what else appealed to the owners was the size of the house itself. The living areas are manageable for busy people, yet spacious enough to spread out. The large lounge has capacity to seat everyone, and the open-plan kitchen/diner enables mealtimes together at the table. They love to entertain, and have appreciated being able to host barbeques and garden parties, with guests coming in and out through French doors in the dining area.
The kitchen has integrated appliances including a Zanussi oven, hob and extractor, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine. There’s also plenty of storage and surfaces.
As the owners work remotely, having space for desks was really important. The first and second bedrooms are both doubles, and the third is a single ideal as a home office. Their newest arrival has meant a shift of the third bedroom into a nursery, complete with a wonderful wall mural.
When the kids need a bath, and when you need a long, quiet soak, there’s the family bathroom, while the largest bedroom has the convenience of an en suite shower room. The cloakroom is downstairs off the hall, handy for visitors.
For storage, there’s a generous cupboard on each floor, built-in mirrored wardrobes to bedroom one, an alcove for wardrobes in bedroom two, plus a loft from the landing. The owners have made good use of their shed for storage too.
The garden is a great size, consisting of mostly lawn, with patio and gravelled areas for seating, and a paved path from the back of the house, through the side gate to the driveway, where there’s room for two cars to park off the road. Bays are available on the road for further, making sure friends and family can park up when they come to check out your new home here at Faulkner Gardens.
