A Victorian double fronted five bedroom detached house in an elevated position with a walled garden, walking distance from the town centre, Harpur Trust schools and The Embankment.
The property has been sympathetically refurbished and restyled with careful attention paid to blending its many period and traditional features with modern day amenities. The features include moulded ceiling covings, dado rails, period fireplaces and an exposed chequered tiled floor. The 2,783 sq. ft. of accommodation includes three principal reception rooms, a study, and a refitted kitchen/breakfast room. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, a bathroom, a separate shower room and a cloakroom. The master bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes. The gated gravel driveway provides parking for up to four cars and continues to the side with access to both the garage and rear garden. The garage is of brick construction under a pitched tiled roof with twin timber doors, power connected, eaves storage and a personnel door to the rear garden.
The sitting room and library are both at the front of the property and have replacement bay windows. The sitting room also has a window to the side. Both have engineered bamboo wooden floors and period fireplaces, the one in the library with an open grate. The library has a range of bookshelves spanning two walls. The dual aspect dining/family room has a stable door to the driveway and glazed bi fold doors to the outdoor entertaining area.
The kitchen/breakfast room has been refitted in a range of modern Shaker style cabinets with complementary work surfaces incorporating a sink and drainer and a breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include an electric double oven, an induction hob with extractor over, a dishwasher, a larder fridge/freezer and a recycling bin. There is engineered wood flooring.
The west facing, fully walled rear garden is a particular feature of the property, and backs onto the grounds of Bedford School. The gardens are lawned with raised borders, mature fruit trees, wild flower areas, soft fruit bushes and an ornamental pond. There is a flagstone courtyard and a decked area for entertaining. The custom built, fully insulated cedar log cabin has power connected and could be used as an office or home gym. There is also an attached store.
The property is walking distance from the Castle Quarter which has a variety of shops including coffee shops, a supermarket and public houses and restaurants. Russell Park and The Embankment are also within walking distance. The mainline railway station is approximately 1 mile away and has services to St Pancras International in 47 minutes. Bedford has a large range of shops. The property is in catchment for Castle Newnham School which is rated good by Ofsted, and there are also the Harpur Trust and other independent schools.
