Boasting a large plot including an in-and-out driveway, a 100ft rear garden and a large double garage, this substantial 4/5 double bedroom detached family home benefits from almost 1,800sqft of versatile living accommodation arranged over two floors and is located on the sought-after St. Neots Road in the popular Bedfordshire commuter town of Sandy. This characterful, bay-fronted chalet-style property has been significantly improved in recent years, and now represents a superb choice for a wide variety of different types of buyers, with families, commuting professionals and those looking to future-proof their lifestyle in retirement all in mind.
The property must be viewed in order to appreciate the scale and quality of accommodation on offer. Once inside, the ground floor comprises an entrance hall, a large living room with a soapstone wood-burning stove – allowing for steadier and more even heat distribution – and sliding doors opening to the raised sun terrace, a bay-fronted, open plan kitchen and dining room measuring almost 26ft in length and featuring granite work surfaces and a wide range of cabinetry, a separate utility room and large store/larder cupboard, an additional side entrance and downstairs cloakroom, two large double bedrooms (a bay-fronted fourth bedroom currently utilised as an office and a substantial master bedroom with copious high quality fitted wardrobing and bedroom furniture), and a large wet room finished in travertine stone.
To the first floor are two large double bedrooms, one occupying each end of the property, plus an additional fifth bedroom that could also be used as a games, TV or playroom. The well-proportioned family bathroom completes almost 1,800sqft of high quality, family-sized living accommodation.
Outside, the property benefits from a fantastic size plot, with a significant in-and-out driveway to the front adding to the kerb appeal and a 100ft gated driveway to the side allowing for off-road parking for a multitude of vehicles – including caravans, mobile homes, horse boxes and the like. To the rear is a mature garden of approximately 100ft in length that features a raised decked sun terrace, lawn, mature trees including a magnolia and a weeping willow, and a working garden to the rear with a greenhouse and a number of established beds. A summerhouse has been constructed with electric, providing an ideal outdoor play area for children, and a substantial 20ft x 20ft double garage provides a huge amount of storage and workshop area. There may be potential for future redevelopment of the rear of the plot (subject to planning), as mains electric and water are already in place. Similar schemes have been approved on St. Neots Road in the past, allowing for the construction of detached bungalows or self-contained annexes.
Located on the sought-after St. Neots Road in Sandy, the property is well-served by the town’s excellent transport links, with the A1 providing access to London and The North alongside Sandy’s mainline rail station. With wide-ranging local amenities and significantly improved and well-regarded schooling, the property is ideal for families and commuter buyers, as well as those looking to future-proof their living accommodation. There may even be future development potential at the rear of the plot (subject to planning), making this sizeable property well-suited to a wide variety of buyers.
