Full description

Dunclyn House is a substantial property with a DETACHED SELF CONTAINED ANNEXE plus a large work from home studio.
The stunning location makes this property extra special as it borders open countryside giving stunning views and a rural feel.
There is a living room, large dining room, office/bedroom 5, cloakroom, lovely kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and prep area. Upstairs is the master bedroom with an ensuite, three further DOUBLE BEDROOMS and a luxury family bathroom.
There is a very deep frontage providing plenty of off road parking, a large rear garden and a separate detached annexe with a stylish interior. The annexe building is formed in a 'U' shape and also houses the detached double garage and a large studio (over 34' long!!). In our opinion this building could offer a multitude of uses including extending the size of the annexe - subject to consent. NEW UPDATE - FULL PLANNING HAS BEEN PASSED to convert the remainder for full residential living. Application number: CB/16/05679/FULL

This is a superb space!! The walls have been plastered and there is a vaulted ceiling. 2 doors serve the room and lead into the little courtyard area. This room could very easily be subdivided if required. Overall size - 34'8" x 13'3"

The deep frontage is gravelled for ease of maintenance and provides excellent off road parking for several vehicles. The driveway then leads up the side of the property and leads through the rear of the plot where the annexe complex is. The substantial rear garden is primarily lawned with planting areas. mature trees and shrubs, there is a slightly raised timber shed that is L shaped and measures approximately 14'1" x 11'1" max and has power and light connected. The views over the adjoining countryside are quite superb and help to create a rural feel to this home.

Dunclyn House is an imposing property that occupies a superb position with open countryside views. Despite the almost semi rural feel, the communication links are ideal with the A6 and A507 being approximately 1 mile away so Luton, Bedford and the A1 are very accessible. Over the past few years the present owner has done much to enhance and extend the property to now create a spacious and well presented home. From the reception hall there is a carpeted staircase that rises up to the first floor landing. The living room enjoys a dual aspect and has a contemporary 'cassette' styled wood burner. There are two further reception rooms - a large dining room and an office that could also work very well as bedroom as the cloakroom is adjacent to it. The kitchen is very stylish having been fitted with an extensive range of cream coloured floor and wall cabinets in a 'shaker' design with contrasting work surfaces. There are fitted appliances that include an eye level...

In our opinion this lovely annexe has been very well designed for independent living and could (subject to consent) be further developed adding to the accommodation if the garage and/or studio were to be incorporated. Presently you walk into the living room that is open plan to the kitchen. The ceiling is vaulted and together with the dual aspect there is a pleasant feeling of space. The kitchen has a range of cabinets and fitted appliances with contrasting work tops, the 'island' creates a sociable dining area. There is a double bedroom with a deep storage recess and a doorway leads through to the en suite shower room. Living room & kitchen 21'0" x 12'6" * Bedroom 10'1" x 9'0" * Shower room 7'0" x 3'10" PLANNING UPDATE Full planning has now been passed by Central Bedfordshire Council to convert the remainder of the U shaped building from an ancillary workshop and garage to a residential annex .
