Peacock Road, Bromham, Bedford
through road on a small estate in the idyllic location of Bromham.
This two-bedroom semi-detached house is the ideal starter home, set down a quiet no through road on a small estate in the idyllic location of Bromham. Purchased most recently in
2019 and built around a decade ago, the time has come to pass the property onto the next owner as the current one relocates to a new area.
In 2021, the north-west facing garden saw a true transformation. It's now beautifully landscaped, 'deshrubbed', re-fenced to all sides, and a fabulous mature Acer tree sits in the corner.
For outdoor activities requiring a little more space, the green just a few paces over
the road is the ultimate frisbee court, football pitch, cricket field...
Unusual for homes of this type, this one has the added advantage of off-road parking for three vehicles to the rear, tucked away behind the house. There's also a garage which has an automatic door (fob controlled) with a workshop to the back with two power sockets, still with sufficient room for an estate car in there too.
Electricity sockets in the garden allow for electric car-charging, and weekend car washing is a breeze
with the outside tap and parking area in such close proximity.
Approached from the pavement, the property is bounded to the front by a classic white
A slate-chipped patch presents a fragrant honeysuckle and blooming, well-tended roses.
Stepping inside, there are lots of little features awaiting you.
We love the wood-style flooring throughout the ground floor, the geometric walls in the cloakroom, and the level of storage here is plentiful-the hallway provides an understairs cupboard and convenient space to hang your coats and store your shoes, and the landing has a deep airing cupboard, as well
as a hatch to the useful loft. If needed, there's eaves storage to the garage for all those extra items.
The owner has implemented security measures by way of app-based CCTV, and a
fob-operated alarm system, with the control panel in the hallway.
To the left is the kitchen, where you'll find a range of modern cream units with under unit
lighting, laminate worktops and tiled splashbacks. There's a four-ring gas hob, an oven with
an extractor over, a stainless steel sink and drainer under the front window, and space is available for a fridge/freezer and washing machine.
To the end of the hallway is the lounge/diner. This is a generous room delivering ample capacity to have both a large corner sofa and a dining table for multiple guests. Doors open
onto the patio, giving a really lovely indoor-outdoor feel.
Upstairs, each bedroom is double-sized, and both offer built-in wardrobes.
The master benefits from an en suite shower room, while the second bedroom is served by the family
bathroom, which the owner has newly re-tiled.
Bromham village combines a variety of local amenities, the nature reserve, a primary school, great countryside and riverside walks, two pubs, a Budgens supermarket (soon to be a Co-
op)-and our favourite, The Mill café! For commuters, within around 3 miles are Bedford's town centre and mainline station, and there's easy access to road links such as the M1,
A421 and A6.
