Bought by the current owner as their first home in 2014, it continues to be ideal for someone taking their first steps on to the property ladder without the need to do lots of renovation work.
Why buy this home?
This cared for house is positioned on a quiet, residential cul-de-sac in south west Dunstable, just a short distance away from Dunstable High Street, recreational areas, woodland and the Dunstable Downs, which is perfect for walking dogs. If the new owner has children, there is the choice of fantastic nearby schooling, including Lark Rise Academy which is a primary school with a current Ofsted rating of Outstanding. Both the A5 and junctions 9 and 11A of the M1 are easily accessible from this location so it is also a great place to live if commuting to work by car.
The front door opens into an entrance hall which has laminate flooring and a useful cupboard which is the perfect place to hang your coats and hide away your shoes.
Leading on from the entrance hall is the lounge which is a great size and offers versatility when choosing your furniture and how to lay it out. By boxing in a once open staircase, the current owner has created smart storage units and a love seat which provides additional seating if having social gatherings. A large window to the front allows light to flow into the room and the laminate flooring in the entrance hall continues into the lounge.
The kitchen is said to be the heart of any home and it certainly is here. There is enough space to fit a six-seater dining table and there is also an additional peninsula which could provide more space for eating if entertaining. The current owner has added contemporary concrete worktops which complement the grey tiled flooring beautifully and an understairs cupboard is the perfect place to store an ironing board and hoover. Fitted appliances include a slimline dishwasher, a cooker hood above a five-ring gas hob and a recently installed self-cleaning oven. There is also space available for a washing machine and under counter fridge and freezer. French doors lead out to the decking in the rear garden which is a great place to have a drink and enjoy the sunshine in the warmer months.
Upstairs there are two impressive double bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom, which has wonderful views over Blows Downs, has a fitted double wardrobe and a well thought out, drop-down desk installed which provides a space for someone to be able to work from home if needed. Across the landing you have another brilliant sized double bedroom which currently has a bed and a babys cot and still has ample space available for a wardrobe and a chest of drawers. This room also benefits from a fitted cupboard.
The bathroom is a key selling feature in this property as it has been tastefully redesigned to accommodate a four-piece suite. It has been modernised to a high standard with neutral tiles on both the walls and floor, chrome fittings on the bath and shower and LED strip lights in the ceiling which creates the perfect sanctuary to relax. Storage has been created by a cupboard at the end of the bath with further storage provided from a vanity unit under the sink.
Outside the rear garden which is not over looked, has a decked area perfect for outdoor dining leading on to a lawn. Slate borders provide the perfect place to keep potted flowers and plants. There is a gate to the rear of the garden providing access to the front garden eliminating the need to take a lawnmower through the house when maintaining the lawn at the front.
The front garden is laid to lawn with a path leading to the front door. Under the entrance porch is an external storage cupboard and there is a designated storage area for the bins.
A garage in a block provides off road parking.
More about the location...
Dunstable is a market town in Bedfordshire steeped in history and has so much to do.
Several parks and open spaces are kept by Central Bedfordshire Council along with Dunstable Leisure Centre. The centre was closed on June 4, 2017 to undergo a £20.1 million redevelopment incorporating a brand new town library. 'The Dunstable Centre', which opened in June 2019 (albeit without its swimming pool) includes state-of-the-art leisure facilities, gym, swimming pools and a flexible community space for other public and community services.
Within the town centre is the Grove Theatre, Priory House Heritage Centre and the Priory Church where Henry VIII formalised his divorce from Catherine of Aragon. At the heart of the town sits the Quadrant Shopping Centre, while across High Street North a secondary shopping community named the Eleanor's Cross Shopping Precinct hosts a modern statue commemorating the original cross. Nearby Luton has the Waulud's Bank prehistoric henge and Luton Museum & Art Gallery.
Dunstable Downs, a chalky escarpment outside the town, is a popular site for kite flying, paragliding and hang gliding, while the London Gliding Club provides a base for conventional gliding and other air activities at the bottom of the Downs. Further into the countryside are the open-range Whipsnade Zoo, a garden laid out in the form of a cathedral at Whipsnade Tree Cathedral and the Totternhoe Knolls motte-and-bailey castle.
