Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated on the fringe of this increasingly popular village 23 Bedford View is a unique house on this small private development. Located at the head of the cul-de-sac and occupying a larger than expected plot due to negotiations with the original builder when built, the house now offers gardens and grounds extending to approximately 1 acre. Overlooking rolling countryside whilst enjoying a predominately southerly aspect with simply stunning evening sunsets.

Offering quick and easy access to both Manea and March train stations the house is ideal for those wishing to commute by train to Cambridge or London.

As you approach the property the house looks like a typical four bed detached giving very little away as to what lays ahead. Pulling onto the drive and parking to the side of the house you are immediately struck by the ample parking and the open garden views. As soon as you step out the car you realise just how quiet the area is and possibly appreciate more the ample parking and turning area that is available for visiting family and friends. There is also ample space for those wishing to park a caravan, boat or large trailer.


The entrance door is located to the side of the property and is not visible from the main road. Upon entering you are greeted by a welcoming, light and airy RECEPTION HALL with engineered wood flooring, under-stairs store and a dog leg staircase rising to the first floor. There is access to a ground floor cloakroom which is fitted with a white suite. Underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, which creates complete freedom of interior walls, with no radiators to worry about you can use all the wall space. Glazed double doors lead to:

Open plan "L" Shaped LIVING / DINING ROOM / KITCHEN, you are certainly hit with the "wow" factor as soon as you enter. Having full width bi-fold doors across the back you are greeted by a wall of light and views across the countryside. Set out in three defined areas it is obvious to see why this is the "hub" of the house. The kitchen area is fitted with a comprehensive range of base and eye level "soft close" storage units, ample work surfaces with matching centralised work station and breakfast bar. Fitted with a range of appliances the kitchen satisfies the demands of everyday family life and the keenest of cooks. Walk through the dining area into the sitting area which can easily be configured the other way round if you so desired. Further full width bi-fold doors lead straight out onto the patio area and a feature "self-cleaning window lantern" ensures the whole area benefits from maximum natural light throughout the year.

Leading off the KITCHEN is the UTILITY ROOM with plumbing for automatic washing machine, additional appliance space, ample storage cupboards, enclosed air source heat pump providing domestic hot water and central heating, further uPVC door leading to the side.

LOUNGE approached off the RECEPTION HALL is positioned at the front of the house and benefits from a large bay window and inset ceiling down lights.


Approached via a dog-leg staircase the galleried LANDING has a feature open void ceiling with a remote controlled and self-cleaning Velux window which ensures there is ample natural light. Doors lead to all rooms and there is an access hatch with drop down ladder giving easy access to an insulated loft space with power and light.

MASTER BEDROOM enjoy a lazy Sunday morning watching the sun rise from the comfort of your bed. With far reaching views to the rear overlooking the garden and open countryside beyond via a window and a Juliet balcony. EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM is fitted with a contemporary style suite comprising a low level flush WC, wash hand basin, walk in double shower cubicle, heated towel rail, frosted double glazed window to the side elevation.

There are three further BEDROOMS two with windows to the front. BEDROOM FOUR with window overlooking rear garden and is currently used as an office.

The FAMILY BATHROOM comprises a four piece suite with low level flush WC, walk-in double shower cubicle, wash hand basin and deep free standing bath ideal for those longs soaks after a hectic day at work or a hard day at home,


As you step outside from the kitchen or the dining area onto the paved patio you find yourself in a complete sun trap, enjoying southerly views over open fields and beyond. In the long summer evenings, sit and enjoy watching the sun set in the distance, listening to the songs of the local birds and watch the horses play in the fields adjoining.

The patio area drops away to the lawn and gardens beyond. Ideal for children to play and enjoy themselves, possibly creating a children's play area or those with green fingers maybe a vegetable garden with raised beds. With the garden approaching one acre in total, the garden could be used for equestrian purposes as a pony paddock. There is ample space for a stable or two.

As we see an increase in people working from home this property has the ideal solution.

Set to the rear of the large driveway, still allowing for ample off road parking, the larger than expected DOUBLE GARAGE has twin electric up and over doors, power and light connected. An internal door to the rear of the garage gives access into a self-contained annexe of home-office. This area was originally designed to be a kitchenette area. A further door leads into a full fitted shower room and WC and a staircase rises to the first floor, an additional uPVC door gives access outside, so access does not have to be gained through the up-and-over doors. On the first floor the large home-office is currently used as a gym, but could also be used as a bedroom or cinema room.


Set within the heart of the Fenlands, Manea has around 900 houses and a population of just over 2000 according to the latest census.
