There is also direct bus routes to Bedford and Milton Keynes within a 5 minute walk.

The house is full of original Georgian features including the sash windows, staircase, mouldings and fireplaces. All rooms are decorated in keeping with the period of the house with the exception of the kitchen and en suite bathroom which are more contemporary.As you arrive at the property, there is sufficient car parking for up to four cars plus a garage.

The house is not grade listed so there is the added advantage at the property for a buyer to consider development ( subject to planning) and architectural changes to both the interior and exterior.

The annex which was formally the surgery has its own entrance and could be ideal for an older child or student seeking their independence, an elderly parent or relative who needs their own living space, a home office or perhaps a beauty/ treatment room.For anyone looking to use the annexe as a long stay 'let' for extra income or a B&B, the current WC and plumbing could be upgraded to include a shower.The annexe has direct access to the main house or it can be closed off entirely.

The house benefits from a sizable garden which is not overlooked and is prettily landscaped around two ancient apple trees. A BBQ deck and patio are accessible from the kitchen/ conservatory and a smaller deck for those who prefer to relax in the shade.
