Why buy this home?
The words 'Tardis' and 'deceptively spacious' are used all too often when portraying a home, but they are definitely words that are fitting when describing this one.
As soon as you enter the front door the sense of space is apparent as you are welcomed by a charming 20ft lounge with exposed brick pillars, an open staircase and an alcove which provides the ideal place for displaying pictures or photos. Due to its shape and size, the room can be laid out in numerous variations to always keep the lounge feeling fresh.
As you continue through the archway at the rear of the lounge, you will find a study on the right-hand side. This is a perfect space for someone now working from home but could easily be used as a games room or a guest bedroom if that was a preferred option. Opposite the door to the study is a storage cupboard which is great place for you to keep a vacuum cleaner and ironing board.
The first of the two bathrooms is on the ground floor and as with the rest the rooms in the property, it is a fantastic size. It comprises a W/C, wash hand basin, bath with a power shower over it and an extractor fan. The bathroom is fully tiled with a mirror fitted along one of the walls.
At the rear of the property is the sociable kitchen/diner measuring an impressive 26ft. In our opinion, this room is the real selling feature of the home and although perfectly functional as it is, it has the potential to be something incredibly special. The kitchen units are modern and there is ample worktop space for preparing meals. Integral appliances include a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, eye level oven and grill, gas hob and an extractor hood. There is also additional space for a washing machine. The dining area is large enough to easily have a six-seater table and could also fit a sofa which would transform this space into a family room, ideal for modern living requirements. French doors lead out into the rear garden making it an ideal space if entertaining friends or family.
Upstairs, the property has three good size bedrooms and the bonus of an additional shower room. The shower room is fitted with a W/C, wash hand basin and a shower cubicle. All of the bedrooms take double beds and have enough space for additional furniture.
The rear garden is a nice size and a lovely place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening - weather permitting of course. The first of two patio areas leads on to a lawn which is bordered by mature flower beds. The second patio area is the larger of the two and the perfect spot for the BBQ, it is positioned at the rear of the garden ensuring you catch the last of the sunshine. The garden is fully enclosed with a wall along one side and the rear and has a gate leading to a footpath you can use to take your bins out.
There is on street parking which is permitted.
Agent's note: some of the rooms in this property have been virtually furnished.
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.
