Why buy this home?
Located in the small village of Soulbury this quaint property is a short drive to the market town of Leighton Buzzard benefiting from a rail service taking as little as 30 minutes to reach London Euston.
Soulbury itself is a quiet village in the heart of the countryside. For convenience items such as bread and milk, there is a Tesco Express that can be reached by car in five minutes. Every good village needs a pub and just up the road from the property you will find The Boot which has benefited from a recent refurbishment. If you enjoy the outdoors, then you will find fantastic walks or cycle rides to Wing in one direction and Stewkley and Stoke Hammond in the other. Liscombe Park, a leisure and health complex, is also in the village and has a gym, a swimming pool, and a health spa.
Standing outside and looking at the front of the property, you cannot help but admire it. It has all the charm and character that you would expect from a period home including patterns in the brick work and sash windows.
Leading on from the well-proportioned entrance hall is the living room. This room is a fantastic space which allows you to be creative when arranging your furniture. The focal point of the room is a log burning stove which is perfect to curl up in front of at the end of a cold winter’s day. There is storage built in around the chimney breast to hide things away and wood effect tiled flooring is easy to clean if you leave any muddy footprints after coming in from a countryside walk.
Undoubtedly, the country style kitchen/diner is the main attraction of this home and where you would spend most of your time when socialising. The current owner has a picnic style table with benches as well as shaker units to enhance the country vibe. Corian work surfaces are fitted along one side of the kitchen and provide plenty of space for meal preparation. The tiled flooring from the living room runs seamlessly into this room. Fitted appliances include a fridge/freezer, a washing machine, and an oven with a gas hob over it. The kitchen/diner is an extension of the original property and what was the old window provides an opening so anyone in the kitchen can still be involved with conversations in the living room. A set of bi-folding doors open out on to a raised decking area which overlooks the rear garden. If you have children or enjoy hosting friends and family, opening the doors in the warmer months creates a perfect extension of the home, allowing everyone to be together.
Upstairs you will find two bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom is at the front of the property and the current owners have fitted it out with a super king size bed, a wardrobe in the recess of the chimney breast, and two sets of drawers. The second bedroom is a single bedroom and has a fitted wardrobe and more storage over the stairs. This could accommodate a pull out sofa bed and be used as a guest room if required.
The bathroom has been refitted and consists of a bath with a shower over the top of it, a wash hand basin with a vanity unit over it, and a toilet. It is fully tiled with white subway tiles on the walls and slate effect tiles on the floor. There is also a contemporary heated towel rail.
The rear garden, which seems to go on forever and ever, is low maintenance with artificial lawns and easily maintained flower beds. The garden is a sun lover’s dream as it gets sunlight for most of the day. The decking area benefits from the morning sun making it an ideal place to have your coffee or enjoy lunch with friends or family. Walking down the steps from the decking, you will find a path that meanders through the garden to two patio areas where you can enjoy the evening sunshine, a summer house, and a shed.
