The entrance hall leads into a cosy living room. Overlooking the cottage garden to the front, the living room boasts the same rustic tiled flooring and exposed beams that can be seen throughout the property. An inglenook fireplace takes centre stage with deep traditional shelves built into the chimney recesses.
As you come through the front door, to the right, there is a beautifully sunny room, currently being used as a 4th bedroom. This bright space would work equally well as a further sitting room, study or reading room as it features double glazed double doors straight out onto a garden patio.
The dining room, also looks out to the front gardens and paddocks. It has an inglenook fireplace with a raised hearth and wood burning stove with two former bread ovens built into the wall. A solid oak door, leads outside to the front of the property.
Leading off from the dining room, is yet another reception room, currently being used as a snug, but would make an equally good office. The snug features the same beams as seen throughout the cottage together with exposed brick flooring.
KITCHEN & UTILITY
The kitchen area makes up much of the back of the house. To the right, is a fitted utility room complete with sink and plumbing for a washing machine.
The Kitchen has been fully fitted with oak base and wall mounted cabinets. A traditional belfast sink and range style oven take pride of place, whilst fitted appliances include a dishwasher. A back door leads you straight out into the gardens, and two wooden staircases curve upstairs to the bedrooms above. Between each staircase are deep traditional cupboards and bookshelves.
A modern bathroom sits at the back left of the house. Newly decorated in sand coloured tiles and a white suite, the bathroom is every inch luxurious. A deep roll top bath sits under the window, for when you have the time to fully relax, whilst a large walk in shower offers a practical alternative.
The first staircase reaches bedrooms 2 and 3. Bedroom 2 is a comfortable double and looks out over the front gardens and paddocks. Bedroom 3 is accessed through bedroom 2 and looks out to the side of the property over the terrace and open countryside.
The second staircase leads up to a spectacular master bedroom. Originally two rooms, this large space has room for a dressing area or small sitting area. The dual aspect windows look out to the front of the property. Access into the loft space.
The 1.1 acre plot is comprised of well tended cottage gardens, paddocks, vegetable growing areas (including a large poly tunnel) and a wildlife pond.
The boundary is encased by wooden fencing and a large timber gate allows entry into the gravel driveway and covered carport area.
To the front of the property is a cottage garden, encircled with a picket fence. The more formal lawned gardens continue around the property to a large cobbled patio to the side of the house- complete with built in bbq and views over open countryside.
The four paddocks are interlinked to allow for a number of uses and versatility. They are each surrounded by wooden post and rail fencing.
* Two large storage barns
* External oil fired boiler (serving the heating and hot water systems), sit to the rear of the house.
* Large timber storage barn (could be used as stabling)
* Large polytunnel
SMALL HOLDING EXTRAS….
The current owners are also willing to leave the chicken houses, electric fencing (currently in barn) etc and a number of other farming essentials should the new owners require.
Thurleigh sits in north Bedfordshire. It boasts its own primary school and falls within the Sharnbrook Upper School catchment area. Bedford is just 8 miles away and has fast rail links into London St. Pancras (under 40 mins), whilst the A6 is 3 miles away.
Due to the rural position and large plot, the property would lend itself perfectly for use as a small holding (as done by the previous owners) or equally for equestrian purposes.
Lots of storage space
Excellent Transport links to London
