A relatively new property built to meet modern energy efficiency standards, this three bedroom terraced home on the south-west edge of Bedford would make an ideal home for a couple with young children. Close to open countryside and walks along the Great Ouse, the house offers many of the benefits of village life but with the convenience of a town centre and retail park just minutes away.
Kempston is a growing suburb of Bedford and Wilkinson Road is part of a new development built within the last few years. The towns main railway station is approximately 40 minutes from London which makes commuting to the capital a possibility. However, as its close to the edge of town, travel in and out of Bedford by car is also relatively easy, with the M1 a few minutes away, bringing London to within an hours drive. For travel further afield, Luton Airport offers connections to Europe and the Mediterranean as well as other UK and Irish cities. Amenities close by include Kempston Rural Lower School and Kempston Challenge Academy, the Kempston Hammers Spots and Social Club and the Bedford Great Denham Golf Village.
The property is fronted by a red brick wall typical of the area with a gateway leading into a small garden laid to gravel. A short stretch of path leads to the front door with a pitched slated roof over. To the rear is a neat and tidy garden laid mostly to lawn and entirely enclosed by timber fencing, with a secure and sturdy timber gate opening onto the street behind. Paving leads from the gate to double patio doors which open from the kitchen/diner. A timber shed offers storage space. The property also has the added bonus of off road parking for two vehicles accessed from the rear of the property.
The property benefits for a B rating on its EPC and includes wall, roof and floor insulation, high-performance glazing and low-energy lighting throughout. Warmth is provided by a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with radiators fitted in all rooms.
The main entrance is through the front door which opens onto a small lobby with an internal door ahead leading to the downstairs W/C and to the left into the main living room, which is fitted with carpets and includes an integral shelving and cupboard unit along one wall. Another internal door leads from the living room into a second hallway separating it from the kitchen/diner, stairs rise to the first floor and offer under stair storage. The modern kitchen has a tiled floor and an impressive array of base and wall units which incorporate a large fridge/freezer. Wood work tops laid out in a U shape are illuminated by down lighters fitted beneath the eye-level cupboards. A gas hob with extractor hood over and an electric oven beneath, and a stainless steel sink with mixer tap, are also included in a design which makes good use of the space available. The stairs to the first floor lead to a carpeted landing with airing cupboard with doors opening onto two double bedrooms one with en suite shower room and in-built wardrobe and a single bedroom, used by the current owners as an office. The house bathroom partially tiled in aqua blue includes a wash basin, W/C and heated towel rail.
In our opinion, this is an opportunity for a new owner to acquire a modern family home in a pleasant location, complemented by relatively new amenities but also only a short drive from Bedford town centre. As ever, wed recommend a viewing to fully appreciate both the high standard of accommodation on offer as well as the convenient location.
