Why buy this home?

This home in Linslade is perfect for someone starting out on their property journey and has the potential to add a rear extension (STPP).

As is tradition with this age of property, upon entering you are welcomed by a large entrance hall complete with understairs storage, the ideal space to hide away shoes and coats.

The lounge/diner is a good size and has dual aspect windows allowing light to flow through the room. There is enough space in here to comfortably fit your sofas, coffee tables and a dining room table, without feeling cramped. As there are two windows in this room, the window overlooking the rear garden could be removed and replaced with French doors if this was preferred. There is also potential to add a single storey extension (STPP) coming off this room to create a larger lounge/diner, relocate the kitchen or add a whole new room.

The contemporary kitchen is fitted with shaker style units and marble effect work surfaces. There is plenty of space for food preparation and the sink is positioned in front of a window looking out to the rear garden (to make washing up that little bit more bearable!). There is space for an under-counter fridge, an under-counter freezer, and an oven. Just outside the kitchen is the first of two outbuildings, which has plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. There is also additional storage in here for items that are not used every day.

A great size rear garden is the obvious place to host friends and family during the warmer months and is a big selling feature of this home. Currently a blank canvass, it would be a great space for a keen gardener or someone looking to create a relaxing space to enjoy. The front of the property can be accessed via a passageway between this and the neighbouring house, meaning you don’t have to keep your bins in your front garden! The second of the outbuildings is currently being used as a workshop.

Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom overlooks the rear garden and would take a super king-size bed, there is also a fitted wardrobe in here. The second bedroom has a fitted wardrobe which is behind the airing cupboard on the landing. If you were to remove or relocate the hot water cylinder in the airing cupboard these could be knocked through to create a much larger second bedroom. The third bedroom is a single but could be used as a nursery or a home office.

A fully tiled bathroom is fitted with a traditional suite comprising of a W/C, a sink and a bath.

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.
