Why buy this home?

Available with no upper chain.

Falcon Mews is a popular development of apartments on the edge of Leighton Buzzard town centre, with its shops, restaurants and pubs, but just far enough away for it to be a peaceful place to live.

Located on the first floor, the accommodation is all accessed via an entrance hall which has an abundance of natural light, setting the tone perfectly for the rest of the property.

One of the main attractions of this property is the open-plan lounge/kitchen area which is a great space for entertaining. The lounge area is decorated in neutral colours which gives the new owner a blank canvass to decorate in their taste and has plenty of space in which to fit a sofa and dining table. On first glance, the size of the kitchen is deceptive but there is plenty of storage with ample work top space and still space to fit your appliances. A window provides natural ventilation for any unwanted cooking smells.

The main bedroom is a good size and has a set of French doors that open to a Juliette balcony. You can comfortably fit in all the bedroom furniture that you would need, and it still wouldn’t feel cramped. This bedroom is serviced by an en-suite shower room which has a generous shower cubicle.

The second bedroom currently has a single bed, built in storage and a desk. This is ideal if you work from home and need office space, but it would also make a comfortable double bedroom if the current furniture was removed. (Please note that this room has been virtually furnished to show it as a double bedroom.)

A sizeable bathroom completes the accommodation.

The lack of outdoor space can often deter people from wanting to live in an apartment but there are communal gardens that you are able to use here. There is allocated parking and further visitor spaces available.

As the apartment has two good size bedrooms, and two bathrooms, it would be an ideal property if you were looking to buy somewhere with a friend or simply looking to rent out a room.

More about the location...

Leighton Buzzard is a market town in Bedfordshire, near the Chiltern Hills and lying between Aylesbury, Tring, Dunstable and Milton Keynes.

The area has become an increasingly popular place to relocate to for workers from London, helped in part by its reasonably priced housing – a big attraction for young professional couples wanting to get their foot on the property ladder.

Leighton Buzzard operates a three-tier education system with a selection of with Lower, Middle and Upper Schools.

The River Ouzel runs through the town as does the famous Grand Union Canal, which Leighton Buzzard is well known for. There is a lot of activity along the canal which residents can enjoy, from peaceful walks to fishing and waterside pubs.
