Why buy this home?

At the end of the entrance hall is the kitchen/dining/living area. Originally designed to be a spacious kitchen/diner with the living room on the first floor, there is plenty of room to have your sofas in here making it a fantastic, family friendly space. The kitchen is fitted with shaker style units and a peninsular creates a natural separation between the dining area and provides another place to eat. French doors lead to the rear garden from the living area and there is a understairs storage cupboard to hide away items that aren't in every day use.

Although the garden is not huge, it is low-maintenance and perfect for someone who does not want the hassle of gardening but simply wants to enjoy the sunshine. The patio offers the perfect place to catch up with friends over a glass of wine or a barbeque, and there is a small lawned area. The nearby Astral Park provides a place to let off steam if required. The garage and parking for the property can be accessed via a rear gate.

The first floor has the main bedroom and another room which was originally designed to be the living room. This room offers flexibility to the new owner and could be a bedroom, a playroom, a games room, an office, or simply used as a living room again (should there be a clash of TV programmes from downstairs!). The main bedroom is a great size where you can comfortably fit in all the furniture you would require, and it is serviced by an en-suite shower room.

On the top floor you will find three further bedrooms and the family bathroom, allowing options to sleep on the same floor as your children should you prefer this. The second bedroom benefits from an en-suite so this could be used as the main bedroom and the third bedroom is also a very good size. The fourth bedroom is a single room but would make a lovely nursery. If you have older children, then this floor would suit them if they wanted a bit of independence away from the rest of the house.

The sandhills development has much to offer its residents including superb road links to the M1 via the A505. A short distance from the property is Grovebury Retail Park which has both an Aldi and a Marks & Spencer foodhall – perfect for your weekly essentials, B&M Home Store, and a Costa Coffee shop among others. Walking to the nearby Parsons Recreation Ground, Leighton Buzzard High Street and its choice of pubs, cafés, restaurants, and shops can be reached in approximately 20 minutes. The development itself has a choice of parks and green areas including Astral Park where children can let off steam, and you can enjoy evening or weekend strolls at Astral Lake. For commuters, there is a regular bus service from the area to Leighton Buzzard train station.
