“SOUTHDOWN HAS EVERYTHING A MODERN FAMILY WANTS, AND NEEDS.”
The third room with bifolding doors to the garden is the sitting room, meaning the whole rear of the house can blend with the garden on those lovely summer days. Again, a feature fireplace sets off the room to its best advantage showing how simplicity works perfectly here. The dining room overlooks the front of the house and the final reception room is the spectacular cinema room, fully wired for sound and with a full size screen.
THE MASTER BEDROOM SUITE PROVIDES A TRANQUIL RETREAT FROM THE REST OF THE HOUSE WITH OVER 500 SQ FT OF BEDROOM SPACE, A FULLY FITTED DRESSING ROOM AND A LUXURIOUS SHOWER ROOM
Like the entrance hall the first floor landing has plenty of space and a second oak and glass panelled staircase to the second floor. There are three bedrooms on this floor including the master bedroom suite which includes a large dressing room fully fitted with high gloss wardrobes and a central island, the luxurious en suite shower room with double sinks and a walk through shower, and the bedroom which has a Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden. This suite has been beautifully designed to create a space with everything you need for the day ahead before even stepping out of the bedroom door. The family bathroom continues with the theme of clean lines and simplicity and has a stunning freestanding slipper bath. Adjacent to the bathroom is the fully fitted laundry room complete with sink unit. The other two bedrooms are both double rooms and both have beautifully appointed en suite shower rooms, confirming the standard to which this house has been finished.
There are two further bedrooms on this floor as well as a shower room. One of these bedrooms has a lovely sitting area, perfect for teenage sleepovers.
Southdown is approached via a large block paved drive with plenty of room for parking and access to the double garage which also has a convenient door to the entrance hall of the house. The rear gardens have been landscaped to look smart and inviting at the same time. For those lazy summer days there is a superb outdoor kitchen with barbecue, brick-built pizza oven, wine fridge, seating areas both at the bar and dining area and a space reserved for the hot tub; all covered with a pergola style roof. The timber buildings that provide the vital family paraphernalia are discreetly screened from the garden with topiary and fencing. The raised beds are accented in the evening with lighting designed to extend the hours of enjoyment in these outside spaces.
Bromham has always been a popular choice. Being just three miles from Bedford yet being surrounded by countryside it enjoys the best of both worlds; the facilities of a town close by but with the advantages of a thriving village community. The village has a lot to offer to those interested in history as there is an 11th century church and plenty of ancient woodland to wander through. The river Great Ouse runs through Bromham for those who enjoy riverside walks although with so much surrounding countryside you really are spoilt for choice. There is a Budgens supermarket in the village and several welcoming pubs, although a more comprehensive range of facilities can be found in Bedford.
Bedford is just 3 miles away with rail links to London in 40 minutes, the M1 is approximately 11 miles away and Luton Airport is 25 miles away. Bedford is home to the Harpur Trust Schools.
