This lovely detached home is offered for sale for the first time in 39 years, and has been lovingly looked after and improved by the current owners.
In the entrance hall is a useful WC – a must for any family! The lounge/diner is an impressive size at over 20 feet long meaning it is easy to designate a seating area and a dining area. Windows on two aspects make it light and bright, as well as the full height sliding uPVC doors to the rear garden.
Off the lounge/diner is the separate kitchen which is ideal for those who like to cook in peace! Its size and shape provides ample worktop space, and even gives the potential to turn into a kitchen/breakfast room for those families who like the kitchen to be the heart of the home. There is a Smeg double oven with induction hob, and space for a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. From here there is also side access to the rear garden and driveway to the front.
The garden itself is a dream for those with greenfingers. A patio which stretches the width of the house sits directly outside the sliding doors to the lounge so you can easily create that inside/outside living experience when entertaining. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with mature borders – evidence of the love that has been put into this home over the years. A path leads you to the bottom of the garden where there is a welcome surprise in the form of a summer house. Currently being used as a bar/entertaining space, it can utilised in many different ways (such as a home office) thanks to the light, power and heating installed. The garden backs on to school fields, and the tall trees at the bottom make it private.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms. The master bedroom is a comfortable size due to the built-in double wardrobes. It is a similar story in the second bedroom which also has built-in double wardrobes. Bedrooms three and four are very similar in size making them ideal for children, or as a home office or even dressing room. All bedrooms are served by the family bathroom which has been tastefully refitted with a double shower cubicle installed in place of the bath. This of course can be reversed if you needed a bath.
Parking is provided by a driveway and garage which has both light and power, giving it the potential to be converted to further downstairs living space if desired.
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.
