Why buy this home?

This bungalow, in a prime residential spot in Linslade, offers the new owner the chance to put their own stamp on it and it is available with no upper chain.

Pulling up to the property, the first thing you will notice is the ample driveway parking available and you can tell that it has been a well-loved home from the manicured lawn and well-kept border.

At the front of the home is the living room which is a comfortable size and leads on to the study and dining area.

Off the living room is an area that is being used as a study, but this room offers so much flexibility. It could be used as a larger dining room for family gatherings or even another bedroom if required. There is also potential to remove the wall that is separating the two rooms to create a considerably larger living area.

The dining area is the perfect size for a round table. Patio doors lead out to the rear garden, so this is the ideal place to sit with your morning coffee and watch the wildlife that frequent it.
The kitchen has been re-fitted with shaker style units and stone effect work surfaces. It has been designed to maximise storage space, including pull out units in the corners. Fitted appliances include an oven, a microwave, an electric hob, a dishwasher, and a fridge/freezer. There is space for a washing machine.

A wet room has been installed which makes it ideal for someone with mobility issues.

You will find the main bedroom at the rear of the bungalow. There is ample space for a large bed and all the bedroom furniture you would need. French doors in this bedroom lead out to a small conservatory.

If you were using it regularly, the second bedroom would be better suited to having a single bed in it. If being used as a guest room, then it would take a double bed for when friends and family come to visit.

The mature rear garden is an excellent size and backs on to the Grand Union Canal. It faces southeast so it is flooded with sunlight, and it is stocked with shrubs and flowers. There is a patio area, a pond, and a garden room that has power to it. There is room to extend the bungalow into the garden (STPP) should you need to.

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.
