Whatever you’re hoping for in a home, Brookfield House has it all, from large living spaces and big bedrooms, to a gorgeous garden, a garage and a gravel driveway. And its village location in Harrold is the cherry on top.

For the owners, the combination of this property in this position was a winning one. They liked character, needed space for their family, and wanted their little boy to grow up somewhere safe. Over the last three years, they’ve maintained the home to high standards, and they’ve made changes that futureproof the property for many more years to come, such as new windows and doors, a new roof and a new boiler. Some of the timeless features here include fireplaces, ceiling roses, parquet flooring in the hall and wood flooring in the kitchen.

The heart of the home for any family is the kitchen, and this one is stunning, fitted with classic Shaker-style cabinetry and a central island, topped with quartz surfaces and with curved corners. There’s a range of integrated appliances, with gaps for further in the utility room, and there’s ample storage to cupboards, drawers and a deep pantry. Being triple aspect, this is a particularly bright space, with a bay window at the front, a window over the sink at the side, a Velux in the vaulted ceiling at the back, and French doors opening onto the garden. Mr loves to listen to music on the sofa in the bay window, sun beaming in from the south.

The cosy lounge opposite is used mostly for watching TV on comfy sofas, the fabulous fireplace a focal point, while it’s all about leisure in the playroom at the back, with space to set up the VR without bumping into walls. The office is tucked away at the end for working in peace. There are multiple places for a desk: Mrs has hers under the small window in the dining area, and Mr once worked in the nook on the landing. There’s annexe potential to be realised if required, with ground-floor accommodation that would convert well into a self-contained single-storey space for relatives to reside, friends to stay, or older children to be independent.

To the first floor, there are five double bedrooms, and a primary suite could easily be sectioned off into a bedroom, dressing room and bathroom at one end. As for bathrooms, both are attractive, yet very different in their aesthetic. The main bathroom is beautiful in modern black and white, with a wonderful bath and a double walk-in shower, while the second bathroom is in a period style with a wood-panelled bath and a waterfall showerhead.

Outside, the garden has been a blessing for this family, offering more than enough ground for badminton, ball games, and growing their own. There are vegetable plots and fruit trees, as well as blossoms along the back and well-stocked beds to the corners. The lawn is manicured, the patio is extensive, and there’s a neat box hedge separating the two. The frontage provides plenty of off-road parking to the gravel driveway and garage (with an EV charger), and the owners have installed a rainwater tank, with a tap and pump for watering the garden and washing cars. There’s also a pop-up bollard at the entrance for security.

The house was the only one on this parcel of land when built back in 1911, with the new neighbourhood joining it in the early 2000s. Harewelle Way is a quiet spot for a family, and Brookfield House has a footpath to the park mere metres away for getting straight on the swings and out into fields. There are so many walking routes on the doorstep, through woodland and past a waterfall. At Harold Odell Country Park, you can pick up a bag of seed to feed the swans, try some tricks at the skatepark, or buy a coffee from the café for the wander around the water.

For a small village, there are lots of amenities, all within 400m of Harewelle Way. Harrold has an Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ primary school, is in catchment for Sharnbrook Academy, and hosts events and activities for all ages, including family runs, film screenings and fetes. For food and drink, there are two popular pubs, an Indian restaurant, and a fish and chip shop ideal for a Friday night. For wide-ranging amenities and entertainment, Harrold is just a short drive from Olney, Bedford and Milton Keynes, and London is conveniently commutable from both Bedford and Milton Keynes.
