Why buy this home?

Appearances can be deceiving, and it is certainly true with this endearing period home. From the outside, you would be forgiven for believing the property was on the small side but once you are inside, the 18ft lounge changes this thinking immediately. The current owners have a large corner sofa which can sometimes swallow up a room but there is more than enough space to accommodate it and still have plenty of space to move around.
The fresh neutral colours and laminate flooring give it a contemporary feel and the room is flooded with the morning sunshine that streams through the bow window to the front.
There is a storage cupboard under the stairs and a further cupboard by the front door is the perfect place to hide away your shoes.

Leading on from the lounge and through a stable door is a spacious kitchen/diner which has ample storage units and worktop space. The kitchen is a shaker style design and combined with the tiled flooring, it has a traditional cottage feel. The current owners have a four-seater dining table but there is more than enough space to extend this to a six-seater should you be hosting friends or family. Fitted appliances include an electric oven with an electric hob and there is space for a fridge/freezer and a washing machine. A skylight positioned in the middle of the ceiling allows natural light into the room.

A utility room houses a tumble dryer and a heated towel rail making it the ideal place to dry your clothes. The bathroom is accessed from here.

The bathroom has a fresh white suite comprising of a wash hand basin, w/c and a bath with an electric shower over it. It is fully tiled and has a window allowing natural ventilation.

The courtyard garden makes this property ideal for someone who is not green fingered but wants somewhere to simply sit and enjoy some fresh air. An artificial lawn and decking area make it low maintenance. A gate leads to a passageway across the back of the property. This provides the best entry to the home if you have muddy boots from a walk at nearby Linslade Woods or along the Grand Union Canal.

Upstairs, the first bedroom you come to is the smaller of the two and is currently being used as a child's room. As with the rest of the property, it's decorated to a high standard and there is a fitted wardrobe cleverly built over the bulkhead to maximise space.

The main bedroom is at the front of the home and is a fantastic size. There is enough space for a double bed with bed side tables, a wardrobe and two sets of drawers.

Agents note: The property has oil fired central heating.

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.
