This rarely available three bedroom detached character home is nestled on the fringes of the sought after village of Barton-le-Clay, and incorporates an abundance of spacious, interchangeable accommodation. Approach to the home is onto a hard standing driveway for one/two vehicles. A smart pale green wooden door leads into the porch which has a tiled floor and quirky porthole window. A further multi glazed inner door opens into the entrance hall which has stairs to one side running to the first floor accommodation, as well as white washed floorboards. A useful cloakroom has been fitted with a two piece suite comprising of a cistern concealed wc and wash hand basin. On the opposite side of the hallway is a beautiful bay fronted family/sitting room which has been decorated in a range of neutral tones and hues. A imposing open fireplace creates a real focal point to the room with an ornate backing, raised hearth and wooden surround. Views from here extend across fields to the front. The kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units with work surfaces over. Space has been allowed for several free standing appliances including a cooker and fridge/freezer. Spanning the rear of the home is the principal reception room, the living room, which measures in excess of 21ft in length. This has the same flooring laid which ties the two spaces together seamlessly. Two sets of large sliding patio doors open into the garden and ensure the space is flooded with an abundance of natural daylight. From here access is provided into the formal dining room which has a wall of exposed brickwork, creating a real feature to the room. The look is finished with a cast iron fireplace with raised hearth and surround, in addition to stripped floorboards. Completing this level is the utility room which has a long run of work surface offering space for a washing machine and tumble dryer under. It has a polycarbonate roof and personal door access to either end. A dogleg staircase leads to the first floor landing which is beautifully bright, given the windows to both the front and side elevations. The master bedroom occupies the rear of the home, as does the third bedroom, whilst the second sits to the front and has a bay fronted orientation with stunning elevated views beyond. All three are serviced by way of a bathroom comprising of a P-shaped bath with shower unit and glass screen positioned over, low level wc and wash hand basin. It is further contemporised by fully tiled walls, heated towel rail and an obscure window to the side. Externally the garden is sizeable and is laid predominately to lawn with deep borders stocked with mature shrubs and bushes. Various established trees dot the plot. A generous paved patio provides the ideal area to relax or entertain. At the very end of the garden is a large timber summerhouse which, in our opinion, offers the opportunity to be utilised as a separate home office space. The boundary is enclosed by timber fencing. The village of Barton-Le-Clay is a civil parish in the central Bedfordshire district bordering Hertfordshire, situated on the A6 corridor between the major towns of Luton and Bedford, sitting at the foot of The Chiltern hills, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The village offers a variety of commercial facilities to include a local shop, bakers, a number of public houses, restaurants and a Co-Op store. The area operates on a three-tier academic system to include Ramsay Lower, Arnold Middle and Harlington Upper and Sixth Form College. There is also a local pick-up point for the Bedford Harpur Trust schools. Leisure facilities include Barton playing fields, Barton Rovers FC and immediate access on to the Chilterns with a number of designated hiking routes. Mainline services for the commuter depart from the Harlington or Flitwick platforms, with a direct route into London St Pancras taking approximately 35 and 40 minutes respectively. The M1 motorway J12 is approximately a 20-minute drive from the village, whereas Luton Airport operates both domestic and international flights and is around a 25-minute drive.
