Full description

Nestled privately behind double gates within the centre of the highly desirable village of Wootton, this beautiful Grade II listed cottage dates back to around 1645 making this home amongst the very oldest buildings in the parish.

A unique opportunity to purchase this beautiful country home packed with history.
This property is speckled with original features, including an inglenook fireplace with original baking oven, reclaimed pews from the old Church which form part of the staircase, a garden gate from the historical Wootton Keep and of course glorious exposed beam-work.

Mole End Cottage makes you feel its Grade II listed heritage and you are transported back to the 17th century, to a simpler time.

The accommodation is spread over two floors, the ground floor comprising of an Entrance Porch leading to the sitting room which continues to exude history with reclaimed maple flooring, a glorious inglenook fireplace with inset baking oven and a dual aspect.
The Galley Kitchen offers all the modern convenience of the 21st Century wrapped in 17th Century character. There is a stable door to the private courtyard which leads to a utility room and WC.
Access from the other end of the Kitchen is the formal dining room with a further fireplace, a window overlooking the cottage garden and stairs to access the first floor accommodation.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with practical storage available and a gorgeous bathroom complete with roll top bath and partially vaulted ceiling.

Externally there are established gardens which our clients have improved throughout their ownership to offer practical and private enjoyment. Improvements include a log cabin with power and light which could serve a multitude of uses.
There is also a detached outbuilding (which isn't listed) currently being utilised as a garage and home-office which has great potential to be an annexe or perhaps even a private cinema room as it was previously utilised in the 1980's.
The historical interest continues here as tennis rackets were made in this building in the early 1900s, one of the original rackets remains.

Wootton is convenient for Bedford via the A421 and can be used to commute to the town centre in 5 minutes in early mornings as it's just 4 miles away.
Wootton is a pleasant town in itself, with a long heritage of brick making and bell manufacture. Quite a few historic timber framed buildings are evident in the area, as well as St Mary's Church dating from the 14th century.

If you want to venture further afield, junction 13 of the M1 is about 7 miles from the property, meaning you can be in Milton Keynes in 25 minutes. Northampton is a 45 minute drive and Cambridge is an hour away.
Bedford station has rail links to London St. Pancras International with the fast service taking approximately 38 minutes.
