Why buy this home?

Available with no upper chain.

The ‘Gosford’ was designed by Taylor Wimpey to be a simple, first family home for somebody looking for more space to grow into, and it delivers this perfectly. Built in 2019, it is in immaculate condition throughout and is somewhere you can just unpack your boxes and enjoy straightaway.

Coats and shoes can be stored in the spacious entrance hall which has enough room to be able to maneuver a pushchair or get the children ready to leave the house.

The living room is welcoming and has a warm, cosy feeling to it which you fail to get in some newer homes. The shape of it allows you to position your furniture in a way that suits your needs and not feel cramped whether catching up with family or socialising with friends.

Often the kitchen is the heart of the home in a property, and it certainly is in this one. Upgraded when purchased, it is fitted with contemporary units and wood effect work surfaces and has mood lighting on the kick boards enhancing the modern feel. The storage units contain pullout pan drawers to maximise space for all your daily essentials and fitted appliances include a fridge/freezer, a washing machine, a dishwasher, an oven and grill, and a gas hob with an extraction hood over it. The dining area can comfortably fit a six-seater table and the Amtico flooring makes cleaning up after dinner time easy. Being at the rear of the property allows parents to keep an eye on children playing when they are in the garden. It also means that the garden becomes an extension of the home if you are having a gathering. The addition of a large understairs storage cupboard provides a place to hideaway vacuum cleaners, ironing boards and items that are not in use every day.

There is an all-important downstairs toilet that completes the ground floor accommodation.

One of the key selling features of this home is the rear garden which is much larger than you would expect for a modern home of this size. It has more than enough space for children to let off steam and is great for hosting friends and family in the warmer months. A patio area leads to a lawn and there is a decked area where you can BBQ and enjoy al-fresco dining.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main bedroom is at the front of the property and has space to comfortably fit a king-size bed with bedside tables. There is space for a wardrobe, and it has an en-suite shower room.

There is driveway parking for at least two cars and there is additional visitor parking nearby.

More about the location...

Leighton Buzzard is a market town in Bedfordshire, near the Chiltern Hills and lying between Aylesbury, Tring, Dunstable and Milton Keynes.

The area has become an increasingly popular place to relocate to for workers from London, helped in part by its reasonably priced housing – a big attraction for young professional couples wanting to get their foot on the property ladder. Leighton Buzzard provides great access to the countryside and other parts of the UK like London, Birmingham, Cambridge and Oxford.

Leighton Buzzard is close to the M1 motorway and A5 road, and is served by Southern and London Northwestern Railway services on the West Coast Main Line railway at Leighton Buzzard railway station in Linslade. The railway operates non-stop commuting services to Euston railway station, with the fastest peak journey times less than 30 minutes.

Leighton Buzzard operates a three-tier education system with a selection of with Lower, Middle and Upper Schools.

The River Ouzel runs through the town as does the famous Grand Union Canal, which Leighton Buzzard is well known for. There is a lot of activity along the canal which residents can enjoy, from peaceful walks to fishing and waterside pubs.

There are many community events scheduled throughout the year including both the Food and Canal Festivals in the summer, Linslade in Bloom, Music in the Park and the Christmas Market.

A short drive from Leighton Buzzard is Ascott House which is set in a 3,200-acre estate and benefits extensive manicured gardens which you are free to enjoy. There is also Rushmere Country Park on the outskirts of the town which is an area of 400 acres of woodland, heathland and meadows for you to explore. This is a Greensands Trust site with a visitor centre and café.

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.
