This extended, spacious and partly thatched detached residence offers versatile accommodation which includes on the Ground Floor an entrance hall (approached through oak framed porch with oak front door), three reception rooms (plus an additional office off the garage/store), cloakroom, kitchen and utility room. Additionally a conservatory is located off the dining room and separated therefrom by oak framed and glazed sliding/folding doors that "disappear" into wall cavities at the sides thus opening up a total entertainment space some 40 feet long. The First Floor accommodates a landing, master bedroom with ensuite shower room, two further bedrooms (planning permission granted for a fourth bedroom) and a family bathroom.
Externally the property overlooks parkland with mature trees etc to the front and with the rear garden facing south and overlooking paddocks and woodland. The plot extends to about a third of an acre. A generous gravelled driveway offers parking and gives approach to the garage/store. Planning consent exists for an additional double garage. A pedestrian side gate gives access to the rear garden with a natural stone patio area to the rear of the house and accessing the conservatory. The garden was landscaped by Graham Pavey some 15 years ago and is laid primarily to perennial shrubs and roses for ease of maintenance with sweeping lawn leading to a small circular terrace area for the last of the evening sun. Two workshop/equipment stores each with electricity benefit the garden.
The residence, within a conservation area, is close by the well known Ickwell Green with its mature oaks and chestnut trees, cricket club and pavilion and the Maypole where traditional festivities are held on May Day. Ickwell, together with the neighbouring village of Northill and with Old Warden just a mile or so distant, comprises an sought after group of small rural communities in this attractive corner of Bedfordshire. The famed Shuttleworth Collection and Museum of vintage aircraft is close by together with the well known Swiss Gardens, all part of Shuttleworth House and parkland.
The market town of Biggleswade lies some 2 to 3 miles to the east, being by passed by the A.1. and with a mainline rail station offering services from about 35 minutes to Kings Cross/St Pancras. A recently completed retail park accommodating stores such as Marks & Spencer, Next, Boots etc offers a wealth of retail choice. Ickwell offers a preschool and a lower school with secondary and upper schools at Biggleswade and Sandy close by. The County town of Bedford is some 8 miles distant with the well known Harpur Trust Schools and others offering private schooling for all ages.
