This fabulous five bedroom property is approached via a sweeping driveway to give an immediate impression of tranquillity and privacy. And yet behind the scenes, the property is buzzing with life with its superb swimming pool and excellent equestrian facilities. All set on a plot of approximately 3.75 acres this unique property surely ticks all the boxes and even has plenty of potential for further development.
Nestled within the Bedfordshire countryside and yet within easy reach of shops and schools, The Haydens is ideally situated for either working from home or for commuting to London. Imagine leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the city to come home and unwind in the relaxing calm of the country.
The accommodation is certainly versatile here. There are three reception rooms on the ground floor as well as a cloakroom, utility room, shower room and an open plan kitchen/breakfast room.
The shower room is adjacent to the third reception room making it an ideal option for an additional en suite bedroom with even further potential for a sitting room and kitchen to be incorporated into the rear of the garage to create a self contained annexe if required. Alternatively, it could be used as a playroom or perhaps a study, perfect for those wishing to work quietly from home.
The utility room is fitted with a range of hand painted units and has space and plumbing for a washing machine. A useful built-in storage cupboard provides storage and there is access to the rear from here.
The kitchen is certainly the hub of the house. It has been designed to achieve a clever blend of modern and traditional styles with a bespoke range of units, granite work surfaces, integrated appliances and an electric SMEG oven, all complemented by stunning natural slate flooring.
There is plenty of room in the conservatory area for family meals but for more formal entertaining there is a large dining room which despite being open plan is still able to create an intimate space. This area and the adjacent family room are full of charming features such as beautiful feature fireplaces, wooden flooring and large bay windows overlooking the front. For an individual feel, there is the very stylish spiral staircase leading up to the main sitting room.
On the first floor, the sitting room is simply stunning. Spanning the entire width of the house it has plenty of natural light and there are two electric log burning stoves for those cosy winter evenings. Glazed double doors open onto a large balcony which is yet another unique and special feature of this property. Overlooking the pool and surrounding countryside, and with steps down to the garden, this area is the perfect place for sitting out in summer evenings.
There are also two double bedrooms on this floor together with a large bathroom which has a separate double shower and a freestanding bath. Bedroom two has the added advantage of a door to the terrace area, step outside and take in the wonderful views before starting your day.
The second floor has a shower room and three further bedrooms including the magnificent master bedroom which has far reaching views over the gardens and open countryside, its own en suite bathroom and a dressing room.
Bedroom five has En Suite and Bedroom four has a study area; perfect for homework should a teenager occupy this room, or even as a comfortable sitting area.
The main attraction of this house is arguably the outside space. Extending to approximately 3.75 acres, it includes not only well kept gardens and an outdoor heated pool but an all-wether arena, stables and several other outbuildings such as a large detached agricultural building.
The pool area has been perfectly planned to create a relaxed holiday feel right in your own garden. To complete the scene there is a covered seating area, a summerhouse with a built in bar, a jacuzzi hot tub, two changing rooms and even a WC.
The arena is floodlit for year round use and the paddocks of approximately 1.8 acres are to the rear. The various outbuildings comprise stabling for nine horses, tack rooms, workshops and barns, and all the stables have power connected and are fully alarmed. There is plenty of potential here to create a gym, a games room, or even offices, the choice is yours.
The property is situated just 6.5 miles from Bedford Station where rail services to London take approximately 40 minutes. Bedford has several private schools including the excellent Harpur Trust Schools and the popular Sharnbrook Academy which is just 2 miles from the property.
Bletsoe itself is a thriving village with a strong community feel and it has its own Facebook page to keep you updated on village events. Sharnbrook has several shops for everyday provisions and the Rushden Lakes Shopping Centre is a major shopping and entertainment complex just 11 miles away.
