Spend your time in this spectacular open plan living space, snuggled up in this serene lounge, sat in this landscaped garden, and wandering the waterways of Wixams. There’s no need to worry about work here, with everything taken care of by the current owner over recent years.
This superwoman of a seller has not done things by halves, adding a full-width single-storey extension, converting the loft, and landscaping the garden all in 2019, overseeing every element to ensure attention to detail and exacting standards. Even the cloakroom, the smallest room, has been decorated in a bold, glamourous vibe, merging monochrome with magenta.
It goes without saying that the open plan area is the showstopper for the owner, for us, and we’re sure it will be for you too. It’s flooded with light from skylights and high ceilings, and bi-fold doors unite the indoors with the outdoors. The extension has made a profound difference to the living space on offer, allowing a family to spread out, to socialise and to gather together, still with separation to the lounge on the other side of the house.
The smart and stylish, practical and pristine Wren kitchen has navy cabinetry, marble-effect surfaces, and a stainless steel Blanco sink with Insinkerator boiling water tap. Appliances include a Bosch double oven and induction hob, a wine fridge, plus an alcove for an American-style fridge/freezer. The utility matches the kitchen design, with further storage, surfaces, another sink, and space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
Not only the size, but the style of the home has also been elevated, including wall panelling, pretty wallpapers, premium tiling and a hand-painted mountain mural.
Each bedroom has its own distinct aesthetic, and is well proportioned for families and for flexibility. The loft conversion added a shower room and two more bedrooms, one of which was planned as a dressing room before the pandemic shifted to homeworking. There’s a whole wall of wardrobes, alongside ample office or bedroom space depending on how you want to utilise the room. The master opposite has capacity to fit wardrobes too, and one of the first-floor bedrooms has a range of mirrored wardrobes for more storage.
The owner enjoyed completing the renovation so much that she replaced the Jack and Jill family bathroom in 2022, now blue-hued with a walk-in shower and a beautiful freestanding bath, creating a cool, calming spot to relax.
For relaxing in the garden, the patio is the perfect place for laying in the sunshine. Well stocked beds give greenery, and artificial lawn takes away mowing maintenance. Conveniences such as lighting, power and an outside tap are in situ, and the side passageway is ideal for bins and bikes. Two allocated parking bays are just out the garden gate, and there’s readily available road parking.
A big benefit to the property is its proximity to the Village Lake, seen from the front windows, and reached in seconds. Natural surroundings belie the convenience of the area, easily commutable into London from Bedford, and soon to be made easier with the introduction of the train station. There are small, medium and large centres for further amenities, coffee shops and restaurants, entertainment and activities, with Ampthill, Bedford and Milton Keynes all within a short drive.
When purchasing in 2013, the owner looked at other local developments, but Wixams had their favourite family feel. There are schools, parks, sports facilities, a supermarket, and a Portuguese restaurant and takeaway they frequent way too often… Life for the owner’s young daughter was made, with Rainbows, dance classes, and countless clubs for kids. Mum and daughter have made friends forever here, and will be sad to leave this stunning home in this superb location.
