Property SummaryA well-proportioned and comfortable family home with an extensive south-facing conservatory, beautifully-maintained gardens and an integral single garage.
Close to good schools and under an hour by train from central London, the property is also with easy reach of the A1 Great North Road, Bedford and Luton
Kestrel Way is on a relatively modern residential estate with streets all named after birds, reflecting Sandys close relationship with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), whose HQ is based in the town. The rear of the house overlooks playing fields attached to Sandy Upper School, which was rated good after an inspection in 2017, while Maple Tree Lower School - which was also rated good at its last inspection by Ofsted in February 2018 - is under 300 metres from the front door. Other local amenities include a convenience store approximately 250 metres away while buses from Kestrel Way run to Biggleswade and the market town of Sandy itself which is home to a good selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars, a Co-op supermarket, post office, pharmacy and health centre. Trains from Sandy station connect with the East Coast mainline at Peterborough and London Kings Cross less than an hours ride south. Bedford is under eight miles away as the crow flies while the proximity of the A1 Great North Road makes travel further afield by car relatively simple.
The property is separated from the road by a block-paved front garden offering access to the integral single garage with up-and-over door and off-road parking for at least two cars. Boundaries are marked by waist-high timber fences with a head-high timber gate offering access to a passageway which leads around to the rear of the house.
Here, a delightful established, lawned garden is enclosed on three sides by head-high timber fence panels which support some mature climbing plants, shrubs and small ornamental trees which offer a degree of privacy from neighbouring homes. Features include a fountain and pond, a stone bench beneath a wrought-iron flower arch, a screened timber shed with a pitched roof and a flagstone patio edged by a low wall.
The front door opens onto a tiled reception hall with an internal door to the immediate left leading to the downstairs WC, decorated in a shade of terracotta and including a pedestal sink with splash-back tiles above, a wall-mounted radiator and a useful under-stairs double-doored storage cupboard. The blue-carpeted stairs with open wooden bannisters and rails rise to the first floor while additional internal doors open onto the lounge, the separate dining room and the kitchen.
The lounge is fitted with a fuchsia-coloured carpet and includes a TV point and wall-mounted radiator. However, the central feature is the fireplace with dark wood mantle framing a marble hearth and surround set with a with a living-flame gas fire. Windows to two sides allow plenty of light to flood the room during the day while lighting after dark is provided by both wall-and ceiling-mounted fittings.
Double doors lead through into the dining room - fitted with green carpets to match the striking décor - with another set of double doors offering access to the conservatory, built across the entire south-facing rear elevation of the house. Fitted with ceiling fans, power sockets and a TV point and large enough to accommodate a three-piece suite as well as a dining table and chairs, the space overlooking the rear garden allows plenty of options for a new owner.
The kitchen has an easy-to-clean, stone-coloured, tiled floor with oak base and wall units fitted above and below black granite worktops with ceramic splashback tiles above all cooking and preparation units. The modern sink with chrome mixer tap and drainer is fitted beneath the window overlooking the conservatory while the design also includes a four-ring gas hob with extractor above, an integral double electric oven, an in-built dishwasher, and overhead adjustable spotlights.
A separate utility room can be accessed either from the kitchen or the conservatory and includes space for an upright fridge/freezer, a separate sink with drainer, power sockets, additional storage cupboards matching those in the kitchen and an internal door leading into the garage. This room also features integrated washer / dryer.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with internal doors opening onto all four individually-decorated bedrooms; one single currently used by the vendors as an office - and three doubles. The master bedroom also includes fitted wardrobes, fixtures for a wall-mounted, flat-screen television and a fully-tiled, en suite shower room equipped with a low-level WC with a concealed cistern; a floating wall-mounted hand basin; and a heated, ladder-style towel rail in chrome.
The fully-tiled house bathroom is also located on the first floor and includes a WC, a pedestal sink beneath a mirrored cabinet, and a bath with wooden side-panel, shower attachment and a glass splash screen.
The property is equipped with a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with thermostat, double glazing and low-energy lighting in the majority of permanent fixtures.
