Set on the edge of the village and backing onto glorious Bedfordshire countryside is this wonderful period property, highlighting the perfect blend of country living with a community feel. With five bedrooms, including a guest suite, four reception rooms, and a fantastic open plan kitchen/family room with bi-fold doors onto the patio of the large south-facing rear garden, the home provides plenty of versatility for the whole family to enjoy. The house has been thoughtfully refurbished to an excellent quality, with all the attention to detail you’d expect from a property of this standard.
Kitchen / Breakfast Room
Through a charming timber-framed porch with terracotta-tiled floor, the home opens to the entrance hall, with oak engineered flooring, oak internal doors (that continue throughout the house), sizable understairs storage cupboard, and access to the contemporary cloakroom. To the main reception room is a stylish fireplace, comfortable sitting area, and more than enough room for a dining table for formal entertaining – rendering it the ideal setting for a festive family Christmas. Further reception rooms include the study, cinema room, and playroom, which is perfectly situated adjacent to the kitchen/family room to keep an eye on little ones. The kitchen/family room is undoubtedly the hub of the house. There are two sets of bi-fold doors to the rear patio, and a stunning large roof lantern, bringing an abundance of natural light. The kitchen area is fitted with painted wooden units with granite work surfaces, and integrated Smeg appliances including a five-ring gas hob, full-height fridge, and full-height freezer. A chimney recess has the capacity for a double-sided log burning stove. To the side is the utility room, fitted with matching units to the kitchen. The guest suite completes the ground floor and is accessed from the garden for complete independence. It has space for a kitchenette, possible mezzanine area, and an en suite bathroom – or could be used as a home office, a private haven away from the main house.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor. The master has part-vaulted ceilings, built-in wardrobes, a contemporary en suite bathroom, and dual aspect windows with views over open countryside. Bedrooms three and four share a Jack-and-Jill shower room. Across the landing, bedroom two, also with dual aspect windows, has its own en suite shower room. The landing has the potential of extending into the second floor to create two further bedrooms and a bathroom, or even just one large bedroom suite.
Set back from the road, the property benefits from a gravel driveway with parking for at least four cars. A further driveway to the side of the house, shared with a neighbouring property, leads to the double garage.
The south-facing and fully enclosed rear garden is predominantly lawned, along with a terrace area with Lay-Z Spa hot tub, creating a superb zone for socialising or quiet relaxation on summer evenings.
Brookfield House is located in a very peaceful position. The neighbouring property was built by a previous owner, who ensured total privacy in that the new property has no windows overlooking this property. The entrance to the driveway has pillars in place for the addition of electric gates, to make this home your castle!
