***SOLD STC*** An incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully preserved Edwardian three double bedroom detached family home, situated on a generous corner plot close to The Embankment in Bedford’s desirable Castle Quarter. Selected by The Times as one of the best places to live in the UK, this fabulous location is home to a raft of benefits to discerning homebuyers, including acres of open green space, tree-lined residential streets and a whole host of small, independent shops, pubs and eateries – making this gorgeous home a truly special find.
The property is ripe for sympathetic modernisation and extension (subject to planning), although does already boast attractive and spacious living accommodation over two floors. The ground floor currently comprises an entrance porch and an impressive hall, with a dog-leg staircase and original stained glass window the key features. A 21ft bay-fronted living room can be found to the front aspect, whilst a spectacular formal dining room, with high ceilings, original cornicing and fireplace, provides a generous second reception area. To the rear is a large, open plan kitchen and breakfast room – ideal for further extension (STP) – alongside a downstairs cloakroom and utility room.
To the first floor is a good size landing, with original fitted storage cupboards, and three great size double bedrooms, featuring bay windows, original fireplaces and built-in storage. A family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation, although a large loft area could comfortably house further bedroom and bathroom space if desired (STP).
Outside, the property benefits from exceptional kerb appeal and a generous corner plot, with a pretty garden to the front and off-road parking plus an oversized garage with inspection pit to the side. To the rear is a superb and very private garden, mainly laid to lawn and inclusive of a paved sun terrace and matures planting and trees, including a high-yielding apple tree.
The property is situated on a generous corner plot on Kingsley Road, between Shaftesbury Avenue and Newnham Avenue and within close walking distance of Russell Park and The Embankment in the county town of Bedford, an historic and important market town situated on the River Great Ouse between the great university cities of Oxford and Cambridge. The town benefits from wide-ranging and high quality amenities, plus excellent transport links to London, The North and Milton Keynes and a number of schools recognised for their excellence, including the outstanding Bedford School and Bedford Girls’ School.
