Full Details

Positioned opposite Goldington Green Park, The White House is a spacious, versatile family home, set on a generous corner plot with a delightful south-facing garden and plenty of gated parking.

Built in the 1930s, the property has charm, with warmth from bare woodwork and exposed brickwork, and airiness from high ceilings. The owners have kept the home to hotel-like standards, and you can see the care and attention they’ve put in over their two decades here. The previous owners extended up and out in the 1990s, yet there’s still the opportunity for single-storey living, with plumbing to incorporate a downstairs bathroom.

Coming inside, the hallway is welcoming, with both downlights and soft wall lighting, and neutral wood-effect flooring that continues across most of the ground floor. An inner hallway leads to the cloakroom and the utility room, where there’s space for extra appliances. There’s a huge cupboard to the right of the front door, handy for coats, shoes and school bags, and the staircase has an alcove underneath. To the first floor, the landing has an airing cupboard, and there’s built-in wardrobing and eaves storage in the bedrooms.

There are four bedrooms here. The primary is huge, and benefits from a four-piece en suite. Spanning the full depth of the footprint, there’s a dormer window to each end, and a porthole window to the side. Bedrooms two and three are doubles, bedroom four is a good-sized single, and these share the shower room.

To the front of the ground floor, there are two large reception rooms, both of which have been bedrooms in the past. One is currently set up as an office, so work is undisturbed by activity at the back of the house. There’s the option to utilise these as a playroom for little ones, or as somewhere for older children to have independence without hiding in their bedrooms.

The main living areas are superb. The kitchen/dining room on the right is particularly spacious, and there are wide openings between this and the lounge to the left that make the rooms feel connected. The kitchen is fabulous, fitted in a very wide range of classic cabinetry topped with ample work surfacing. There’s space for everything, with full-height units, plus a pull-out pantry cupboard. Integrated appliances include dual ovens, an induction hob, a fridge and a dishwasher, and there’s also a Franke sink. Entertaining couldn’t be easier, with a sociable layout, capacity to seat a long guestlist, and an ideal spot for cosy after-dinner drinks by the incredible fireplace in the lounge. The lounge also has sliding doors onto the garden for getting outside on sunny days.

The south-facing garden is perfect for summer parties, and the owners have hosted many here, filling the patio and the deck with people, even putting a marquee up on the lawn. It’s screened by high hedging, and well maintained and mature, with pretty planted beds, and trees such as apple.

To the front, the setting is leafy, with horse chestnuts along the road, and the house behind laurel hedging. A path leads between pillars to the front door, and a gate opens onto the driveway at the side, where there’s parking for at least five cars. There’s potential for a garage to the side (stp).

The location is just over the road from Goldington Green Park, mere seconds from greenspace. The great outdoors is one of Goldington’s appeals, and the owners enjoy walks around Priory Country Park and along the river to Castle Mill Lock. The area is served by Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ schools and nurseries, a varied choice of shops, supermarkets and amenities, and Bedford town centre and its mainline station are only a few minutes away by car, or a little further by bike.

Although born and bred Bedford, the owners are moving to be nearer their daughters, forgoing this fantastic family home and offering it to new owners.
