Occupying a wonderful quayside position within the ever sought after village of Wixams this highly deceptively family home combines well proportioned accommodation with a particularly bright and airy disposition. Approach to the home is onto a hard standing driveway initially, this allows parking for one vehicle, ahead of this a detached single garage is accessed via a smart up and over door. Running along the front perimeter of the home is an immaculately kept border which has been stocked full of vibrant shrubs and bushes. The front door is welcoming and once inside you're greeted by a spacious entrance hall, stairs ahead run to the first floor accommodation while a useful cloakroom has been fitted with a two piece suite comprising of a low level wc and wash hand basin. To the right hand side entry is provided into the kitchen/breakfast room, this offers an extensive range of cream floor and wall mounted units with darker contrasting work surfaces over. Several integrated appliances have been cleverly woven into the design including a four ring gas hob, under counter oven, stainless steel extractor hood, fridge, freezer and washing machine. Additionally plumbing has been provided for a dishwasher if required. Modern tiled splashbacks and flooring complete the look and space has been afforded for a small table and chairs to one corner. French doors open out into the beautiful garden. Completing this level is a more formal dining room although could equally be utilised as a family room. It also has a window to the front and a further two to the side with views across the quayside. Moving upstairs the first floor landing provides access to all accommodation as well as another staircase to the top floor. The living room is a sensible size allowing for flexible furniture placement and has two juliet balconies taking full advantage of yet more spectacular views and ensuring natural daylight floods the room. To the other side of the landing is the main bedroom which has a dual aspect orientation as well as the advantage of its own en-suite. This comprises of a double shower enclosure, low level wc and wash hand basin. The look is completed by a heated towel rail, modern tiling and obscure window to the side aspect. On the top floor the second bedroom is equally impressive in terms of its proportions and is a generous double room, the third and fourth have thoughtfully curved ceilings adding some real character to them, one of which is a further double while the other is a single. Both are serviced by way of a family bathroom this time fitted with a panelled bath, low level wc and wash hand basin. Externally the garden is an absolute credit to the owner who has crafted and cultivated it into a beautiful outside space. Having been laid principally to lawn it has a lovely patio area ideal for relaxing or entertaining while deep, shaped borders house a variety of mature bushes and shrubs. The boundary is enclosed by a combination of timber fencing and brick walling. Gated access leads directly onto the driveway beyond. Wixams village is located just off the A6 and approximately four miles south of Bedford town centre with its high street, various shops, restaurants and direct rail links into London St Pancras taking approximately thirty five minutes. The development itself has a small convenience store, well regarded local schooling and various play areas.
