PROPERTY SUMMARY Harvey Robinson estate agents in Biggleswade are delighted to offer for sale this three-bedroom detached family residence within the rarely available Hamlet of Ickwell in Bedfordshire. Originally constructed in the 1930's and extended and converted over the years, Stepping Stones offers versatile accommodation for the modern family.
Inside, you are greeted with a newly fitted Karndean flooring to the Entrance Hall leading on and into the Breakfast Room. Across the Hall is the Dining Room, with both reception rooms boasting bay windows offering views stretching across fields to the front aspect. Further accommodation to the Ground-Floor consists of a separate Lounge with French-style double doors opening onto the rear Garden, Kitchen with a central island, and a Utility/Boot Room with an external door. Upstairs, you will find three spacious double bedrooms, with a walk-in wardrobe and three-piece Ensuite facilities to the Master Bedroom, and a further four-piece luxury family bathroom with Roca roll-top bath completing the First-Floor accommodation.
Outside, the property sits on a generous-sized plot, approximately 1/3 acre (sts), with ample off-road parking on the gravel driveway accessed by the electrically operated five-bar gate, leading to the detached over-sized double Garage with electrically operated up and over garage door. The detached Garage has power and lighting and a cloakroom with a staircase to the rear leading up to a separate fully insulated 24ft in length room being currently utilised as a home-office. The home-office has power and lighting, and windows allowing natural sunlight to filter in, with views across the rear Garden and paddocks beyond. This vast space incorporating both the Garage and home-office poses potential to be fully converted into an Annex (subject to planning) for family members.
The beautifully landscaped hedgerow enclosed gardens offer views across paddocks and fields to the rear and are subdivided by thoughtful footpaths leading away from a central water feature creating tranquil seating areas around the extensive lawned formal grounds. A Koi fishpond with a raised decking area can be found towards the end of the garden, with a timber storage shed and Wendy house too. Power and water points are also present in the garden.
