Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An 18th century stone five bedroom detached former farmhouse in grounds of approximately 4.5 acres with formal gardens, paddocks, stables, manège and outbuildings. Nicholas Farm has been refurbished, retaining period features and is over three floors. Many of the rooms have views over the gardens and paddocks beyond. Previous planning consent was granted for a three storey extension to the rear elevation, plans of which can be made available upon request. The gardens and paddock extend to approximately 4.5 acres and there are stables, a manège of approximately 1,200 sq. metres, outbuildings and a double garage. The property also has a cellar which is accessed from the rear.

The property is situated within walled and partially landscaped gardens which are mainly lawned with a patio area. There are mature trees, including fruit trees, and railed vegetable borders. There is a cobbled driveway from the road which leads to the garage and outbuildings which comprise stables, sheds and stores, all with power and water connected. There are two paddocks, the larger of which is opposite Nicholas Farm and accessed from a crew yard with two stone built former cattle sheds. These have the potential of renovation for equestrian use subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions. The paddock is enclosed by post and rail fencing and lies adjacent to a bridleway. The second paddock is to the east of the farmhouse and to the rear of the stables. There is also a manège of approximately 1,200 sq. meters and a cellar with access from the rear of the house.

Carlton offers various local amenities that include a church, village store, public house and a lower school which is in the catchment area for Sharnbrook Upper School. Bedford has rail services to London St. Pancras International in 35 minutes and is approximately 10 miles away.
