The property is nestled on the edge of the village of Eaton Bray, in a secluded setting, enjoying superb panoramic views of the surrounding Chiltern Hills and comes to the market for the first time having been built in the 1930's for the family of the sellers.

Situated on the edge of this Bedfordshire village, 'Harling Springs' was built in the 1930's and was originally believed to be a smallholding. Now the house sits with a beautifully kept garden of approximately one acre and is open to the adjoining land of approximately 3 acres.  There are various large outbuildings and sheds and a timber summer house and there is also further gated access into the field from the road which is currently not in use by the owners.

A pillared driveway leads to a field gate which opens to a large gravelled parking area, front garden, attractive turning circle and garage.

The house enjoys typical features of its era including high ceilings, original fireplaces, beautiful bay windows and most of the rooms have dual aspects allowing the light to flood in.  There are three reception rooms, all featuring large bay windows that overlook the surrounding grounds, a modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room, separate utility room and cloakroom/WC.  The first floor offers four double bedrooms, all with dual aspects that enjoy far-reaching views, a family bathroom, and the master suite enjoying a dressing area and en-suite bathroom.

Outside, the garden, that measures approximately one acre, has been beautifully maintained by the owners and is a haven for various wildlife that visit.  There are various outbuildings including a 32ft garage that adjoins a 24ft barn, 32ft wood store, large shed and a timber summer house.  The gardens sit open to the undulating field that is surrounded by a secure fence and hedge borders and measures approximately three acres.  The views from here of the Whipsnade Lion and Ivinghoe Beacon are just superb and there is further gated access from the road that is currently not in use.
