Lane and Bennetts are delighted to present this amazing, fully renovated detached and extended bungalow, positioned in a quiet lane, surrounded by open countryside and nature. Sitting on a private landscaped and mature plot approaching 1/3 of an acre The Spinney is an unbeatable place to live.
The current owners have sympathetically and intuitively re-modelled and refurbished this now stylishly presented home to offer the benefits of a new property whilst retaining the charm of homes located in the idyllic Bedfordshire Village.
The infrastructure has almost entirely been replaced - completely new oil central heating system, wood effect double-glazed windows, replastered walls and ceilings, full loft insulation levels, full rewiring and complete redecoration. There is a brand-new fitted kitchen breakfast and dining space, new utility and cloakroom, doors frames and skirting.
A sizable half carriage driveway, with space for six or more vehicles alights at the stepped entrance porch, opening to a delightfully reclaimed wood block entrance hall, and a wide open square arch leads into a desirable dining space to seat 10, with dual aspect windows and triple hung over table lighting. A deep granite breakfast bar leads you through to the designer fitted kitchen, with integral white goods, dishwasher, twin stainless steel sink, wall mounted double oven and grill, and separate microwave,, complemented by granite work surfaces and soft closed doors and cupboards.
Entering the inner hall, again with beautiful wood block flooring you are drawn into the sizable sitting room which boasts a handsome limestone fireplace and hearth and large picture window. Through the internal part glazed door, passes through to a bright sizable garden room, with its French doors opening onto the patio, the beautiful lily pond and the landscaped West facing rear garden. To the left of this room, another tiled corridor brings you to the cloakroom, utility room and boiler room. At the end of this passage you will find a large second bedroom with dual aspect windows to front and rear (currently used as a studio ). This room benefits from an independent entrance to allow access for running a business from home
Turning back to the main property, you will find a large luxury bathroom, complete with deep fill bath, a separate walk-in shower unit, pedestal hand basin, WC with fitted coupling, completed by a chrome heated towel rail, under floor heating and clever electric rise and fall skylight. Next is a bright single bedroom, which also benefits from a rise and fall electric skylight, and the guest double bedroom with lovely garden views to wake to.
A noteworthy facet of this property is the spacious main bedroom, offering a spacious with open plan dressing area and concealed wardrobes, leading to the en suite bathroom, walk-in shower unit, with pedestal hand basin and matching WC, and heated towel rail, with open countryside views.
The property also benefits from a large loft space, over a third of which is already boarded and with panelled walls, desk and workspace, with lighting, heat and eaves storage space. There is ample opportunity to enlarge this loft space to create additional rooms with velux or dormer windows to rear, subject to planning.
To the front, the aforementioned block paved crescent carriage driveway is complemented by lawned areas, border planting hedging and countryside to both front, rear and side aspects. A wooden gate allows access to the side and rear of the plot where you will see first the West facing formal landscape grounds featuring a patio overlooking a lovely lily pond, specimen trees, shrubbery and border planting, and shale & bark filled beds. Behind that, through the trees lies a “secret” garden with its pergola and brick-built BBQ area and to the left, the neighbouring pond, mature trees and stables. Further still, the concrete path leads to an open area with a shed and greenhouse. Behind the apple trees, at the rear boundary lies an enchanting small stream which flows down the right hand side of the plot flowing from the autumn until the end of spring. The clear night skies are perfect for star gazing too.
We think there's much to love and appreciate in this fabulous property so why not make that call today and book yourself a viewing?
