Property description

** Guide Price £650,000 to £700,000 ** A rare opportunity to purchase this individual architect designed home situated within a no through road, and within the Conservation area of one of Bedfordshire's most picturesque riverside villages. 'Five Farthings' was constructed in 1968 to a Scandinavian design and offers plenty of scope to extend and add value (subject to planning). It incorporates beautiful landscaped gardens and enjoys idyllic countryside views. There is much natural light and space within this home as you enter, which is a nod to the style of the property. The layout ensures it can be used in various ways, with two bedrooms (plus an optional third) downstairs and two upstairs, offering flexibility for those wanting one-level living or those who require a family house. The property is approached via a block paved driveway affording plenty of off-road parking. The 18ft x 17ft sitting room features a vaulted ceiling and an open fire which gives a nice homely feel in those winter months. The sitting room opens into the conservatory which overlooks the gardens. There is a study ideal for those who work from home, and a family room which could be used as a fifth bedroom if required. The kitchen/breakfast room is well stocked with cupboards and workspace, with the impressive skylight windows again continuing the theme of natural light. The adjoining dining area overlooks a small atrium which is a fantastic private space to have your morning coffee. The two ground floor bedrooms both benefit from easy access to the adjacent shower room. On the first floor there is an impressive master bedroom with extensive fitted wardrobes. This is effectively a mezzanine to the sitting room, but could easily be enclosed should you wish. There is a further bedroom and family bathroom to the first floor. Outside there is a workshop and a separate recycling store. The gardens are fantastic, a haven for wild-life, and are well stocked with a variety of flowers, shrubs and climbers. There are expansive lawns, and two patio areas positioned to share the sun all day. Stepping through the secure gate at the end of the garden reveals that beautiful view and the many countryside walks on your doorstep. This is the first time this property has been for sale in four decades so a viewing is highly advised to fully appreciate the bespoke nature of this home.Biddenham lies in a loop of the beautiful River Great Ouse, with miles of fabulous countryside walks to take advantage of, yet within minutes of the County town, its restaurants and shops, fast trains to London and elsewhere, its world-renowned Harpur Trust private schools and the outstanding Bedford Free School. Well thought of schools for all ages are within half a mile of your front door, just past the village green, as is the community hall and the popular 18th century pub, The Three Tuns. And there can be few villages with such a fantastic pavilion and all manner of sports and children's play facilities. A surgery and a newsagent are just a lovely walk away in Great Denham.
