Property description

'Bracadale' is a detached five bedroom home that has been extended and modernised offering well appointed and versatile internal living accommodation throughout, gardens in excess of 100 ft, parking and three reception rooms, located within 'The Avenue', Ampthill, Bedfordshire. The property commands an elevated position and approach is on to a shingled carriage driveway with central magnolia tree. There is open access to both sides of the property, the front exterior has a cream rendered brick which sits under a traditional clay tiled roof. The home is accessed via a stained glass composite door leading in to an entrance hall.

Internally the home presents well throughout, the entrance hall flooring is laid with a solid oak and in total measures 22 ft and has a staircase rising up to the first floor accommodation. There is a useful fitted storage unit as well as a single under-stairs storage cupboard. Off the entrance hall are cloakroom facilities fitted with white sanitary ware to include a wall mounted wash hand basin and low level w/c. The flooring is laid with a salte tile and there is an obscure glazed window to the front aspect of the home. Sitting alongside is a sizeable walk-in cloak closet ideal for storing coats, jackets and shoes.

A glazed timber door off the entrance hall leads directly in to the formal living room. There is a continuation of the oak flooring and internal box bay window to the front of the property. There is a feature fireplace with an inset cast iron 'AGA' stove, with open surround and a slate tiled hearth. The family room is also accessed off the entrance hall via glazed french doors. This room could have a number of different uses and has attractive views and access on to an external patio via a glazed full panel sliding door. There are bespoke fitted storage units and shelving and the flooring is laid with a solid oak.

The stylish kitchen breakfast room sits to the rear and has a number of quality hand built wall and base level units which are covered over by a light grey granite worktop. There is a central island unit with seating and complimentary worktops. There is space for a dishwasher as well as a fridge freezer, there is an integrated 'Neff' double oven with a separate warming drawer, an inset 6 ring gas hob with a modern extractor hood over. There are glazed french doors on to the rear and an internal door leading in to the office. This area forms part of a conversion and would lend itself particularly well as a playroom. There is a glazed door and transparent partition, recess ceiling spotlights, oak flooring and a window to the front aspect of the home. The useful utility room also sits off the kitchen breakfast room and incorporates further wall and base level units, an inset sink/drainer and space for a washing machine, tumble drier and additional white goods.

The landing area on the first floor has a loft hatch with access up to the attic and tripe built in storage cupboards. The master bedroom has various fitted bedroom furniture and a window overlooking the front aspect of the home. There is also the convenience of an en-suite bathroom which is fitted with a panelled bath with central hot and cold taps, a separate shower cubicle, low level w/c and a vanity unit with inset wash hand basin. The flooring is laid with a ceramic tile and the walls are partly tiled, there are recess ceiling spotlights and an obscure glazed window to the rear. The second bedroom has views over the rear gardens and has fitted wardrobes and vanity area. There are three further double sized bedrooms, two of which also have fitted bedroom furniture. Also on this level is the family bathroom which has a double width shower cubicle,vanity unit with top mounted basin and a modern wall mounted towel rail. This room is fully tiled and has recess ceiling spotlights.

The extensive and mature gardens that sit to the rear extend to over 100 ft in length and are predominately laid to lawn. There are a number of planted borders and trees to include a chestnut, pine and laurel. There is a paved patio running the full width of the property with steps up to an attractive circular seating area. To the far end of the garden are secure brick outbuildings ideal for garden storage. The gardens have a combination of panel fenced and hedged boundaries and have a north easterly facing orientation. In our opinion the home could subject to any planning restrictions be extended to the rear.

Within a short distance are access to Ampthill's town centre with extensive amenities, parks and local Waitrose store. The area is renowned for its autonomous schooling for all age groups. There is also a local pick up point for the Bedford Harpur trust private schools for both boys and girls. Links in to London are from the Flitwick platform with a frequent service in to St Pancras which takes as little as 40 minutes.
