Anyone that knows Bedford will know what a great location this house is in. For those that don't, Bromham House is ideally situated for the train station and town centre, yet also just a short distance from the village of Biddenham with its quaint thatched houses and village pond. This imposing six bedroom Edwardian house certainly makes a statement as soon as you see it having a large driveway and double fronted bays but once inside you will immediately appreciate just how much space this property has. With a swimming pool, gardens approaching two thirds of an acre and a detached self contained annexe this could potentially be your dream family home.
Bromham House is full of original features such as panelled walls, fireplaces, ceiling covings and wall friezes. The two reception rooms to the front of the house are extremely light and spacious having lovely high ceilings and large bay windows, and there are two further reception rooms which could be used in a variety of ways depending on your requirements. Currently the house is divided into two wings but this could easily be converted back….versatility is key for this amazing property with nearly 4,500 sq. ft of accommodation. The six bedrooms are on the first floor and the master bedroom has a large en suite bathroom with a door to bedroom six making it perfect for use as a dressing room.
Outside the rear walled garden is mainly lawned and extends to approximately two thirds of an acre, incorporating a rose garden, a small orchard and of course the heated swimming pool. The self contained annexe and garage are discreetly detached from the house making it ideal for guests or as a granny annexe and the block paved driveway to the front of the house provides plenty of off road parking.
The property is situated just half a mile from Bedford Station where rail services to London take approximately 40 minutes. Bedford has several private schools including the Harpur Trust Schools, and half a mile from the property is the Biddenham International School and Sports College which has an Ofsted rating of Good.
