The house backs onto woodland which is owned by the Woodland Trust. There is a number of green spaces and parks accessible by quiet paths close to the house for recreation and dog walking.
In the 16 years that we have lived here, we have spent the time improving and developing the house for comfort, fuel efficiency and convenience. Cavity wall insulation has been installed as well as full loft insulation and the house has a 4Kw array of solar PV panels which earn approximately £600 per annum FIT payments with over 16 years still to run on the contract. The dual fuel bills for the house are approximately £900 per annum, which means that the total cost per year is less than £400.
Our water softener is fully automatic and gives sterling service, meaning that we have reduced costs for washing powder and our recently replaced bathrooms (all three!) are pristine and as good as new. It also means that our dishwasher and washing machine operate at peak efficiency.
One of us works from home and we have high speed broadband installed (50Mb/sec) and the house has both satellite and terrestrial TV aerial feeds.
The garden has been a labour of love and is a haven both for humans and wildlife. We hope that the new owners will see it in the same light.
There is a number of primary and secondary schools in the locality, including one secondary school which is Ofsted rated as ‘Outstanding’.
There is a number of local shops and takeaway outlets within half a mile and a Sainsbury’s superstore and petrol station at the same distance. Luton town with its Mall shopping centre and shops is less than half an hour bus journey away.
Leagrave station is 10 minutes drive away and offers fast commuting into central London (St Pancras 45mins average) on the Thameslink route.
Luton Airport is approximately 20 minutes drive away.
