Full description

A substantial property set in a lovely village, Aldwyck Wood is set on 10 acres with orchards and woodland. The home boasts a wonderful kitchen breakfast room, four receptions rooms, main bathroom with infrared sauna and a master bedroom suite with Juliette balcony, ensuite and dressing room. There is a one bedroom annexe and two outbuildings alongside a double garage.

Situated on the edge of Green End in the pretty village of Renhold, is Aldwyck Wood, a large and beautifully presented family home. The land on which Aldwyck Wood stands has been in my family since the 1930s, says Ian. My grandfather was a nursery grower and my parents cultivated it for a great many years. Then in 1953 a chalet bungalow was built for my mother and father; it was the house that I was born in, so Ive lived here for the majority of my life.

When my wife and I took ownership, the house was small and extremely dated, so we have dragged it kicking and screaming into the 21st century. We added substantial extensions to either side of the property, gutted the interior of what was the bungalow, altered the layout completely and beautifully decorated throughout. We also created an annexe for my mother to live in, which has its own separate entrance - although it can also be accessed via the main house - and separate utilities; it even has its own postal address.

Id say my favourite part of the property is the grounds, says Ian. We have around ten acres so I can go out there and totally lose myself. Its so peaceful and beautiful, and it seems to go on forever. To the front of the house its very formal, but to the back we have woodland, an orchard and a huge open space."

Since we renovated the house I love it all, says Ian, but its the kitchen thats the real hub of the home. Its a lovely family space, and the French doors create a really nice connection with the garden when the weather is warm.

Our surroundings are extremely picturesque, but the location is also very convenient, says Ian. In around ten minutes we can be on the A1 or junction 13 of the M1, and were very close to Bedford town centre which has everything you might need as well as the fast train into St Pancras station.

We recently held our sons wedding here and had a large marquee and lanterns hung amongst the trees, and we also put on a huge fireworks display; it was a magical day. "

This is the home Ive known since birth, so it will be a wrench to leave, says Ian, but Im extremely proud of what weve achieved, and I hope the new owners will be every bit as happy here as my family has been for the past eighty or so years.
