Elegant country living.
This elegant period property boasts beautiful, substantial accommodation, a large plot, and a prestigious village location on the Edlesborough / Eaton Bray border.
Set well back from the road, boasting a particularly generous 90ft frontage, the property certainly enjoys an impressive setting.
Inside, too, is equally attractive and offers a stylish blend of classic and contemporary. On the beautifully presented ground floor, the luxurious living space includes a wide reception hall, three spacious reception rooms, plus a large, open-plan kitchen/dining/family room, which leads to a separate utility room and downstairs cloakroom. Of particular note, the sitting room measures a generous 26ft and enjoys a dual aspect, feature bay window and a fireplace with wood burning stove.
Spanning the rear of the house, the kitchen is nothing short of capacious and boasts modern, clean lines, polished granite work surfaces and a large central island featuring a Quooker hot tap, while the adjacent dining area offers more than enough space to seat the largest family. Patio doors lead out to the rear garden which, together with the room’s large windows and magnificent glass atrium, create a splendid light-filled room.
Upstairs, the property has four double bedrooms, two of which enjoy stunning countryside views to the rear. The master bedroom features air conditioning and a bay window and includes an adjoining dressing room with a wall of fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, complete with a sumptuous spa bath. The second bedroom also features its own en suite bathroom, together with a generously sized walk-in wardrobe. The stylish family bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms.
Outside, the magnificent landscaped rear garden extends to around 325ft and enjoys a south-easterly aspect. Laid to lawn and backing onto open countryside, it enjoys a high degree of privacy and offers plenty of space for family recreation. In addition, a good size paved terrace with a remote controlled awning can be found just off the kitchen, perfect for al fresco dining, entertaining friends, or family barbeques at the weekend.
To the front, there is a sizeable detached double garage, large enough to accommodate two large family cars and featuring a remote controlled door. Up above, a vaulted room offers the perfect location for a home-gym or office while, outside, the driveway provides additional parking for numerous cars. In all, the plot extends to approximately 0.65 acre.
This impressive property offers the ideal family home: substantial, versatile accommodation, a large plot, country views and a prestigious village location; and all with the convenience of nearby historic market towns just down the road when you need them.
