Why buy this home?

The location of this property is a key selling point as you have everything that you require on your doorstep, making it ideal for someone who does not drive. Leighton Buzzard High Street can be reached by foot in approximately ten minutes and the train station in approximately twenty minutes. There are local convenience shops even closer should you only need a pint of milk, and you have the choice of local pubs, restaurants, and takeaways just a stone's throw away.

Standing outside and looking at the front of the property you cannot help but admire it as it has all the charm and character that you would expect from a period home.

After entering through the front door, you are welcomed by the first of two spacious reception rooms. It is currently being used as the dining room and has ample space for a six-seater dining table. As the reception rooms are of a similar size, this could also be used as the lounge if having it at the front of the home was preferred. There is an open fireplace which could house a log burning stove should the new owner desire one, but without doubt, the bay window is the star of the show in this room. It allows natural light to illuminate the room and the installation of a window seat underneath it would make a wonderful addition from which to watch the world go by.

Walking through the dining room and past the stairs you come to the lounge. There is another fireplace in this room but this one has a gas fire. Although it is currently capped, this could be opened again to create a traditional fireplace making a stunning feature of this room. Understairs storage provides the ideal place to hide the items that are not in use every day and a large window to the rear looks out on to the garden.

Following on from the lounge is a modern galley kitchen which has plenty of storage units and worktop space for preparing food. There is a fitted electric oven and hob with a cooker hood over it and space for a fridge freezer. Pop up electrical sockets from the worktop mean you will always have a socket free for your essential appliances and the laminate flooring is easy to clean should any accidents occur during cooking. An area between the kitchen and the shower room provides the perfect space for a washing machine and a cupboard which has a gas boiler installed within the last year.

A recently upgraded shower room completes the accommodation on the ground floor. A fresh white suite consists of a wash hand basin, W/C and a spacious cubicle with an electric shower. Off white tiles further add to the modern feel and a window ensures that it can always be properly ventilated.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms with the larger of the two at the rear of the property. It is neutrally decorated and offers flexibility when deciding how to lay out your furniture. The bedroom at the front of the property is also a great size and could be used as the main bedroom should the new owner prefer sleeping at the front of the home. Currently being used as a child's room, it has a single bed and enough additional space to play. This room is also decorated with neutral colours, has a built-in cupboard and the loft is accessed from this room.

The south facing rear garden is a brilliant suntrap in the summer and a fabulous area to socialise with friends. It is low maintenance due to having an artificial lawn and a raised flower bed allows you to add your own touches and colour to the garden. There is a passageway that leads to the front of the property so you do not have leave your bins at the front of the property. Please note that the neighbour has a right of access over your property.
