Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

“Highway Cottage” is a most interesting and unique opportunity to purchase a property with no immediate neighbours in a location offering exceptional communication links by road to the A1, M1 and Bedford’s town centre. In essence there are two fully self-contained properties and therefore this is a perfect opportunity for one to house a relative or create a teenager suite.

The main property is a character three bedroom home awash with beams and exposed brickwork. There are two reception rooms with the living room having a brick fireplace containing a wood burning stove. There is a cloakroom, a study and a well fitted kitchen breakfast room with a Rangemaster cooker and a good array of units which are finished with wooden work tops. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The two storey annex is situated to the rear of and over the double garage and is very well presented throughout. It has a living/dining room with a wood burning stove, a modern fitted kitchen and a ground floor cloakroom. The first floor offers two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Externally the grounds have been very well maintained and landscaped and there are many seating areas to enjoy. There are elevated borders and a large decked seating area which is located adjacent to a bank of maturing trees. Both properties enjoy direct access to the landscaped areas which also include a large ornamental fish pond, a significant patio area and an area of lawn.

The large shingled off road parking area is accessed via a five bar gate and in addition to the double garage there is a further workshop/store complete with power and light.

Both properties are heated via a gas fired system with mains gas for the main property and LPG for the annex. There is no chain so a quick completion is available.

Highway Cottage is located down a private drive serving just one other property. It is just a moments’ drive away from the A421 and the A600 for superb road links. The Bedford town centre is a short drive away and offers a whole host of services and amenities which include varying shopping and recreational facilities. The mainline railway station offers fast and frequent services to the capital.
