This quaint stone cottage combines character with contemporary, convenient connection with a peaceful country life, and stunning space indoors with a sizeable garden outdoors.

Built centuries ago and Grade II listed, the home has all the personality you’d expect at a period property, showcasing exposed beams and stonework, and with charm and warmth felt throughout. Recent refurbishment by the previous owners added a modern touch and updated all-important aspects. The thatch was redone (extending its life by c.15 years), and new windows, a new boiler, a new kitchen and new shower rooms were put in. The blend of old and new is what the current owners fell in love with, and high ceilings in the bedrooms were a bonus.

The generous rooms were another appeal, with no need to compromise on space. It’s cosy, yet not at all cramped, and natural light appears through dual aspects. There’s a window seat in the lounge for reading in the sunshine, and for chilly days and nights, there’s a log burner, set in exposed stone.

Rare for a period home, the kitchen is particularly large, affording capacity to cook together without getting under each other’s feet, as well as to eat dinner together at a table. Fitted in Shaker-style cabinetry with wood surfacing, there’s an inset ceramic sink and drainer, and gaps for appliances such as a range, a fridge/freezer, a washing machine and a dishwasher. It’s the kitchen you see first when stepping inside, and this is a wonderful introduction to the character and the space on offer.

Rarer still is the en suite. The previous owners extended upstairs to deliver the dressing room and the en suite to the primary bedroom. Both bedrooms are big enough for king beds, and the dressing room could be an adjoining nursery, with space for a cot, if not a single bed. Bedroom two looks out through a blossom tree in front to the church opposite.

The second shower room is off the hall downstairs, also in a modern white suite with chrome fixtures and fittings, and having this saves time to get ready in the mornings. The wide hall has two useful cupboards, and there are other storage provisions at the property, including an understairs cupboard in the lounge, and a store in the garden. The store is currently a handy hideaway for bins, but this has electricity and has been used as a utility before.

The garden is a real advantage, giving outdoor space suitable for a family. There’s a two-tier patio for seating, a lawn in the centre, and a hardstanding at the end for further seating, a shed and a log store. The pretty planting is mature, with dense green along the beds, blue hues from cornflowers and California lilac, and reds from roses.

Running along the left of the house is a public footpath, which provides access to the property, and leads to Lavendon Park. Just steps from the house are amenities, including the local shop with a Post Office, two pubs both serving food, the village hall, and the Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ primary school and ‘Good’ pre-school.

Lavendon is a small village, with a friendly community, and surrounded by countryside. During their time here, the owners have enjoyed evening strolls around the village, and weekend wanders through fields, fields and more fields, right from the doorstep. There’s easy access into centres such as Bedford, Milton Keynes and Northampton, and the bustling market town of Olney is only minutes away, each presenting a wide range of eating, drinking and entertainment options.

Lavendon is the perfect place for peace and quiet, and this unique home is right in the heart of it.
