Why buy this home?

Situated on a sizeable plot, this family home offers its buyer the chance to make it their own with potential to extend (STP) both to the side and to the rear. Located a stone's throw from Leighton Buzzard town centre, it has everything you need on your doorstep without the need to get in the car.

Upon entering the property, you are welcomed by an entrance hall complete with contemporary, wood effect floor tiles. There is ample room to hang your coats and put your shoes and both the lounge and kitchen/diner are accessed from here.

The lounge is a comfortable size and has a warm, inviting feel. A large window to the front provides plenty of light and a door leading directly into the kitchen/diner means making a cup of tea is just that little bit easier! There is a fireplace that is currently closed off, which could be opened again to create a wonderful feature or house a wood burning stove, should the new owner desire one.

A wall once separating the kitchen and dining room has been removed to create a spacious kitchen/diner, more suited to modern living.

The kitchen has a country look and has been cleverly thought out to maximise storage and worktop space. Underneath the sink, there is space for a fridge and fitted appliances include an oven, a gas hob, and a cooker hood.

The dining area is the perfect space for family meals and there is a window overlooking the rear garden which could be converted to French doors. Tiled flooring throughout the kitchen/diner makes cleaning up any dinner spills a breeze.

Leading on from the kitchen/diner is the old coal barn which has been adapted to provide a utility area with space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer. There is also a new boiler which was installed in 2019 and has a 10-year warranty.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are doubles and a single bedroom currently being used as an office, would make a fantastic nursery. A fitted cupboard over the stairs in the single room provides more storage. The bathroom is spacious and is fitted with a bath with a shower attachment, a wash hand basin and a toilet.

The south facing rear garden is a wonderful space for children to play in or for entertaining friends and family. It has a patio area, the perfect place for a BBQ, which leads onto a lawn with a raised flower bed and a mature tree which provides shade from the sun. There is also a summer house currently being used for storage and a gate to the rear.

As the property is set back from the road it has a large front garden. It currently has a driveway with parking for two vehicles with a further graveled area which could create two further parking spaces if required.
