Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A Grade II listed 17th century three bedroom detached principally thatched cottage with 0.26 acres. The cottage was built circa 1650 as part of the Ravensden Manor estate and was used as a public house from circa 1731 until 1929. It is of timber framed construction with colour washed brick elevations and retains several period features such as inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams. A ground floor extension provides the study/bedroom three. The gardens surround the cottage and extend to approximately 0.26 acres in total and there is also a driveway and single garage with a storage room.

A gravel driveway has off street parking and access to a larger than average detached single garage which is of brick and timber construction under a pitched roof and has an up and over door, power connected and eaves storage space. There is a separate storage area and a door to the garden. The front garden has a natural pond and there is crazy paving and decking around the perimeter of the garden. There is a paved terrace area to the rear of the cottage as well as a vegetable garden, a greenhouse, a garden shed and an open fronted storage barn. The rest of the garden is principally lawned with mature trees.

Ravensden is approximately 4.5 miles north of Bedford town centre. Local amenities include two award-winning restaurants, a general store, a church and a village lower school. Bedford offers more comprehensive shopping facilities and the Harpur Trust private schools. Rail links from Bedford to London St. Pancras International take approximately 35 minutes.
