Full Details

This three-bedroom semi-detached dwelling is in an elevated south-facing position overlooking open countryside in wonderful Olney. The market town is most well-known as the 1773 writing place of beloved hymn Amazing Grace, for hosting Dickens of a Christmas events, and for the annual pancake race-which first took place in 1445, was enthusiastically resurrected after WW2, and is now an international event!

The bustling High Street offers a mixture of shops, amenities, cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as a vibrant weekly market and a monthly farmers market for local produce and crafts. In the back garden of the house itself, there's a lush plum tree and some rhubarb, for making your own crumbles and jams.

Foxhill is a quiet residential road, situated just a couple of miles from Emberton Country Park, equidistant from three railway stations (Bedford, Milton Keynes, Northampton), and within short walking distance of local schooling. The Harpur Trust schools are in nearby Bedford.

Internally, the property presents good-sized accommodation, ideal for a variety of buyers-first-timers, families, downsizers, etc. Entering the abode, the hallway has a useful cloakroom, a super-deep understairs cupboard, and access to the kitchen and lounge/diner. The turning staircase leads to the first floor.
To the right is the kitchen, fitted in a range of attractive contemporary units with laminate worktops and upstands. There's lots of cupboard space for storage, plus a wine rack. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, five-burner hob with extractor over, separate oven and grill underneath, and slimline dishwasher. There's a stainless steel sink and drainer under the front window, and space is available for a washing machine.

At the rear is the lounge/diner, a spacious yet cosy multi-use room with the capacity for two sofas and a dining table. There's a feature fireplace with wood surround and granite hearth. Also used for dining by the current owners, through double doors is the adjoining conservatory, where there's surrounding windows overlooking the garden, and a side door onto the patio.

Upstairs, the central landing has doors to all three bedrooms and the bathroom, along with a hatch to the loft. The master and second bedrooms are generous doubles, with ample provision for wardrobes, drawers and dressing tables. The windows afford views over to the fields to the rear. The third bedroom is a single, currently used as a dressing room.

Refitted approximately 18 months ago is the bathroom. The modern four-piece white suite comprises a WC, sink with storage under, panelled bath with shower attachment, and shower cubicle with Mira fittings. The walls are predominantly tiled in a marble/stone style.

Outside, the frontage provides off-road parking for two cars to the driveway, and another car to the integrated garage, whilst the road has plenty of spots to park too. A slate chip bed to the side features shrubs and a mature tree, and a paved area allows for convenient bin storage.

To the rear is the south-facing garden. It's easily maintained, fence-enclosed, and mainly laid to lawn, with a patio directly from the house, further small paved area to the back corner, hardstanding for a shed, and borders planted with mature shrubs.
For a well-proportioned home in this beautiful market town, this property really delivers on all counts.
