Full description


An attractive detached cottage style home that is situated on the edge of this popular Central Bedfordshire village. The property stands on a private elevated plot with fabulous views to the rear over paddock land and open countryside.

Available with the benefit of being chain free, the accommodation features an entrance hall, dual aspect sitting room with an inglenook style fireplace, dining room open plan to the kitchen, cloakroom plus two double sized bedrooms, shower room and separate bathroom on the first floor. The property is heated via a gas fired boiler to radiator central heating and the windows and doors have been replaced with uPVC double glazed units. The property is approached via double wrought iron gates with a concrete driveway that provides off-street parking and access to a large attached garage.

We understand from our clients that a pair of rundown semi-detached cottages previously occupied the plot. These were largely demolished and replaced with the existing dwelling house in the early 1980s. The property now requires both renovation/ refitting but offers in our opinion enormous potential to extend (subject to obtaining the relevant consents) and create a wonderful stylish home within a fabulous setting. Viewing therefore is highly recommended.
