Full Details

Made for a family, much-improved by the owners and located on the doorstep of The Forest Centre is this immaculate, spacious home, complete with a generous garden, a three-car driveway and a detached garage.

Built in 2016 by Barratt Homes, the property has sizeable square footage, with both open-plan and separate spaces to suit modern family life. The hall is wide for welcoming visitors and rounding up younger residents, the lounge is large enough for everyone to sit on sofas, and the kitchen/dining room is perfect for dinner parties. The second reception room is currently used as a snug, but offers flexibility for an office, a playroom, even a fifth bedroom.

Upstairs, three of the bedrooms are very large doubles, while bedroom four is a great size as a nursery or an office if needed. Parents have an en suite shower room, children share the bathroom, which has tiling to protect from splashing, and guests can use the cloakroom downstairs.

Felt from the first step inside, the home has lots of natural light. There are dual aspects to many of the rooms, the kitchen/dining room is triple aspect, and there are two sets of French doors at the back for bringing the outdoors in.

Particularly important for families is the storage available here. There’s a loft that could be boarded (perhaps converted – stp), understairs storage added by the owners, and two cupboards in the hall, one with shoe racks, the other housing the hot water tank. Hot water at the home is mains pressure, so there’s no cold blast in the shower when someone’s washing up.

The owners bought the house brand new, and have since redecorated, replaced the downstairs flooring, and refitted the en suite in RAK ceramics. They’ve also incorporated comforts and conveniences such as air conditioning upstairs for keeping cool on hot summer nights, and Hive heating and Phillips lighting throughout. Both heating and lighting are app-controlled for adjusting while out, never needing to worry if you’ve left them on.

Outside, the owners landscaped just last year, including installing power and lighting. You can have a hot tub out here, heaters, and an ambient glow for enjoying the outdoors into the evenings. Little ones have an artificial lawn area to play on, and there are now three patios for a choice of seating when the sun comes out. The garden faces east, but afternoon sun sneaks in, and the side patio is perfectly placed to make the most of it. There’s an opportunity to experiment with planting along the back bed, and with herbs and vegetables to a planter next to the play area. What’s really rare is the level of privacy, aided by a high curved wall to one side, and high fencing to the rest.

To the front is the driveway, affording off-road parking for up to three cars, and with provision for a charging point for EVs. The garage gives another space as well as more storage.

Set along a street lined by blossom trees, the property sits within a good-sized corner plot, on a popular family-friendly development. Marston Moretaine appealed to the owners primarily for The Forest Centre, and this is something all residents rave about. There are wonderful walks to be had, learning about nature on the way, and there’s a café for coffee to bring with you.

Marston Moretaine also has a surprising array of amenities for a village, including shops, schooling and services, and is well connected to centres such as Ampthill, Bedford and Milton Keynes, roads such as the M1, and London via Flitwick and Bedford stations.

As their numbers have grown from two to four since moving here, this house and this development have been absolutely ideal for this family. Come and see for yourself how perfect it will be for yours.
