Why buy this home?

Forming part of a small row of terraced homes, this period property has a mix of character and contemporary features and a fantastic sized rear garden. Situated on Vandyke Road and only a short distance from Leighton Buzzard High Street, this house would be ideal for someone looking to purchase their first home.

After entering through the front door, you are welcomed by the first of two reception rooms, the living room. It is a comfortable size, and a large window allows in plenty of natural light. A beautiful open fireplace is the focal part of the room, and this combined with picture railing on the walls, adds a touch of character.

Walking through the living room and past the stairs, you come to the dining room which has enough space for a six-seater dining table. As the reception rooms are similar in size this could be used as the living room if preferred. Understairs storage provides the ideal place to hide the items that are not in use every day and a sash window looks out on to the rear garden.

Following on from the dining area is a galley kitchen which has plenty of storage units and worktop surfaces. There is space for an electric oven which has a fitted cooker hood over it, with additional room for a fridge/freezer and a washing machine. Tiled flooring is easy to clean and there is a door that leads to the rear garden. A cupboard between the kitchen and the shower room provides storage for items not in use every day, or even space for a tumble dryer.

A re-fitted shower room completes the accommodation on the ground floor. A fresh white suite consists of a wash hand basin with vanity storage, a W/C and a spacious cubicle with a rainfall shower. Grey tiles further add to the modern feel and a window ensures that it can always be properly ventilated.

The rear garden is a key selling feature of this home, it is a fantastic size and a blank canvas for a keen gardener to make their own. It has a patio area which is the ideal place for a BBQ to entertain friends and family during the summer. At the end of the garden there is an area with a raised flower bed where you can grow your own produce and a green house and a shed. Due to the length of the garden, you can be assured to have sunlight in it at all times of the day.
As is tradition with older properties, the bedroom sizes are generous, and this one is no exception.

The larger of the two bedrooms is at the rear of the home and it has room for lots of bedroom furniture without feeling claustrophobic. This room has the benefit of having another room off it, which is currently being used as a bedroom, which is great if you have children who share a bedroom as it will give them a bit of independence. However, this would also make a lovely dressing room, an office or, as the bathroom is directly below it, an en-suite to create an upstairs bathroom. (Please note that this room has been virtually furnished).
The second bedroom again comfortably fits all the bedroom furniture you would require and has a lovely feature fireplace in here adding another touch of character. This room also has a fitted wardrobe. (Please note that the second bedroom has been virtually furnished).
