Why buy this home?

This home is situated in an idyllic location within easy reach of a Tesco Express, a pharmacy, a hairdresser and a community centre. There is a choice of schools nearby and Leighton Buzzard train station is within walking distance. A large playing field is also situated nearby where children can let off some steam, making this property an ideal family home.

The front door leads you to an entrance hall where you can store shoes and coats and means that you do not walk straight into living accommodation.

This home has a lovely feel to it, and it is immediately apparent as you enter the spacious lounge/diner. The living area currently has a two and a three-seater sofa but a corner sofa would also fit perfectly. There is a large window to the front which overlooks a green, allowing plenty of natural light into the home. The dining area comfortably fits a six-seater table and there is a set of patio doors that leads out to the rear garden. As the dining area is next to the kitchen, these rooms could be combined to create a kitchen/diner in lieu of a lounge/diner.

The kitchen is modern and fitted with shaker style units with plenty of work top space. Fitted appliances include an oven/grill with a gas hob over it and a dishwasher, and there is space for a washing machine. The sink is positioned in front of a window overlooking the rear garden which makes washing up that little bit more bearable. A door leads to the W/C separated by a small hall with a further door out on to the garden.

An inner hall has stairs that lead up to the first floor and a door that takes you into the garage. There is space in this hall to create an office space if you needed it and didn’t want to use one of the bedrooms.

The garage has power and light, and this is where the current owners keep their fridge and their freezer. The home next door has converted its garage to create more living space and there is potential to do this here.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, two good sized single bedrooms and the family bathroom. The main bedroom is a great size and has a fitted wardrobe and bedside tables but the room could be rearranged to fit a super king bed if preferred. The second bedroom is currently being used as a guest room but could easily accommodate all the bedroom furniture needed without feeling cramped. As the two smaller rooms are similar in size, this should not cause too many disagreements when deciding what child gets which room! If you have a really young child, then bedroom four would make a great nursery.

Outside, the rear garden is private, low maintenance and a complete sun trap. There is a patio area which is perfect for a morning coffee or dining in the warmer months. There is a lawn with borders filled with easy to look after shrubs. A back gate leads to a path that takes you to Tesco Express in five minutes or local schools in the other direction.

At the front there is driveway parking and a lawned area that could be paved to create more parking if required.

Please note that there is a resident management charge of approximately £200 paid annually. This is reduced by half if paid by the end of the year that it is issued.

More about the location...

Linslade is an English town located on the Bedfordshire side of the Bedfordshire-Buckinghamshire border (and roughly a third-way between London and Birmingham). It borders the town of Leighton Buzzard, with which it forms the civil parish of Leighton-Linslade.

Linslade has no high street. Small, family run shops are clustered at the "Centre of Linslade", where three arterial roads converge to cross the canal and river. (Note, however, that Linslade's "Centre" is not its geographical centre.) Many of these buildings are Victorian in origin, as are all pubs, and the Hunt Hotel.

In recent years the area between the river and the canal has been redeveloped – adding Waitrose, Tesco, Aldi, and Homebase superstores. Other high-street stores and boutique shops, restaurants, bakery and butchers can be found in Leighton; or, failing that, at Milton Keynes. There are also corner shops.

Bedfordshire operates a three-tier education system, with Lower-, Middle and Upper Schools. Linslade has three Lower Schools (Linslade Lower, Southcott Lower, and Greenleas Lower) distributed relatively evenly across town; with a Middle School (Linslade Middle) and an Upper school (The Cedars) located opposite each other, on the edge of town.

The principal Leighton-Linslade facilities within Linslade are Tiddenfoot Leisure Centre, which includes a swimming pool and indoor sports courts; Leighton Buzzard Golf Club and Leighton Buzzard railway station.

Linslade has two semi-wild park areas. Linslade Wood (colloquially called Bluebell Wood) is a mature woodland dating back to at least the 16th century. Tiddenfoot Pit, a former quarry, turned into a lake and wildlife area. Both are managed by Greensands Trust. Stockgrove Country Park and Rushmere Country Park are nearby.

Additional there are parks suitable for teenagers to kick around a football, and for dogs to run about, as well as fenced off play areas for young children, containing slides and swings.

In 1963 the Great Train Robbery took place at a site near Bridego Bridge, between the villages of Cheddington and Linslade. Every time a Great Train Robber was caught law dictated that they had to be brought back to the small court house at Linslade to be charged.
