EWEMOVE SALES & LETTINGS Are you ready to become the new owner of a rare piece of Heath & Reach's history? Residing in one of the six apartments in this converted Vicarage, really will help you cement your place in this picturesque local community. With its high ceilings and feature windows, you'll soon be right at home.

In February 1852, £144 was raised by public subscription, including £15 from the Duke of Bedford. The architect was Edward Charles Hakewill of London and the building cost about £500. The structure was partially built of sandstone from local sand quarries with the quoins made of Bath Stone. In 1866, the year in which Heath & Reach became a separate civil parish, the curate became a fully fledged vicar and the parsonage was known as the Vicarage from then on.

As you approach the house you'll enter through a driveway gap in the sandstone walls surrounding the grounds. At the front of the house is parking aplenty for yourself and your visitors. The grounds to the front of the property are communally shared with the other residents.

Upstairs you'll enter the apartment into an entrance hallway with space for shoes and coats to the left and a small window overlooking the side. A skip up two stairs and you're wowed by the open plan, high ceiling feeling of the apartment. The lounge, dining room and kitchen all flow nicely from one room to the other and the exposed wood beams above add a real air of character to the rooms.

The kitchen is a recent upgrade to the apartment so is modern in feel and has an integrated freezer, oven and hob. the window overlooks the front of the house.

The bathroom is light and bright with it's two unique shaped windows and the second bedroom which is of a good size also benefits from two windows and a high ceiling giving it a really light and airy feel.

The master bedroom follows the same theme of high ceilings and is a good sized double room with built in wardrobe space and views out over the gardens and church.

The village of Heath and Reach is highly desirable and benefits from local amenities, including shops, pubs, hairdressers and a carpet showroom. It's all here in this little village still just a short drive from the main town of Leighton Buzzard.

The location also provides excellent access to the main commuter links, especially the new M1 link road as well as the mainline train station from Leighton Buzzard to London Euston.
