Full Details

This semi-detached family home presents peaceful village life, convenient connections, and the opportunity to add your own personality to a property.

The accommodation on offer is a great size from the start. You first step into the generous entrance porch, with ample room for greeting guests and corralling the kids. There’s capacity for a bench to sit and tie laces, and for hooks to hang school bags and dog leads. There’s a deep storage cupboard to one side for tidying away coats and shoes.

The lounge is a lovely, bright room, with a wide window to the front drawing in sunshine. On chilly days, there’s a fireplace with a terracotta-tiled hearth and a wooden surround. The staircase to the right has a handy alcove underneath for more storage.

The dining room is a useful extra reception room, and one that allows for family meals together and dinner parties with friends. There’s space not just to eat, but to play boardgames, to get a jigsaw going, or to craft without getting PVA glue and pen marks on the sofa.

The kitchen is also to the back of the house, with a window overlooking the garden. The cabinets have been updated with a lick of bold blue paint, and they’re topped by wood-effect surfacing. The worktop has breakfast bar seating at the end for one, maybe two people to eat toast and drink tea in the mornings. There’s space in the kitchen for appliances such as an oven, a fridge/freezer and a washing machine, and in the adjoining utility room for further appliances.

The utility is again generous, currently used as storage space, but also offering office potential. From here, there’s the cloakroom, a door into the garage, and a door to the side as a secondary entrance. Dogs can come in here after a walk, and you can pop in and out of the house during days in and out of the garden.

The lounge, dining room and kitchen lead into each other, giving circular flow around the ground floor. They present the possibility if preferred to open up the traditional configuration into a more modern, sociable layout. Bi-fold doors across the back would bring the outdoors in.

Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, a decent single bedroom, and all three have beautiful wood flooring. The bathroom has a three-piece suite with brass taps and burgundy tiling. From the landing is the loft via a hatch, and an airing cupboard housing the combi boiler. There’s scope to extend the first floor over the garage (stp), which would work really well in creating a big bedroom with an en suite, as neighbours have done.

Alongside the garage, and a rare benefit for homes of this type, is a multi-car driveway. You can park up to four cars at the property, and there’s parking on the road for more if needed. Both front and rear gardens are laid mostly to lawn, stocked with mature shrubs to borders, with the rear garden having the advantage of a patio to one side. This affords plenty of seating for summertime outdoor dining, and space to set up the barbeque.

The location of the home is in Lavendon, a village we can personally speak volumes about. It’s quiet, calm, with a wonderful community, and there are amenities such as two pubs, a local shop, a park and an Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ primary school. It’s a short drive into Olney for independent shops and eateries, as well as Bedford, Milton Keynes and Northampton for further facilities and fast, frequent rail services into London. Lavendon couldn’t feel further from city life. It’s surrounded by countryside and scenery, perfect for getting out in nature and filling up with fresh air.
