PROPERTY SUMMARY Harvey Robinson estate agents in Biggleswade are delighted to offer for sale with no onward chain this Grade II listed two/three-bedroom semi-detached thatched family residence within the rarely available Hamlet of Ickwell in Bedfordshire. Originally constructed circa 1532 and extended and converted over the years, this home offers character and charm at every turn, in the heart of the countryside.
Stepping inside, you are greeted with a freshly decorated Entrance Hall with both a Kitchen/Dining Room and a Lounge leading off. The Kitchen/Breakfast room boasts an oak fitted kitchen benefitting from having integrated appliances to include a double oven, hob, a dishwasher, and a washing machine. There is space for a free-standing fridge/freezer. The expansive ceramic-tiled flooring provides enough space for a large dining table too. A staircase leads to the First-Floor accommodation. The Lounge, with brand-new electric feature fireplace, offers a cosy retreat with views across the thoughtfully landscaped garden - accessible too, by use of the French-style double doors. A luxury three piece-bathroom suite also occupies the Ground Floor complete with a WC, wash hand basin and Jacuzzi spa bath. Upstairs, two double bedrooms are found along with exposed beams. A Dressing Room/Study/Bedroom-Three is accessed just before the Master Bedroom complete with fitted bedroom furniture. A three-piece shower room is also present on the First Floor.
Outside, the property sits on a generous-sized plot, with ample off-road parking on the gravelled driveway to the front. An enclosed, non-overlooked garden to the rear is primarily laid to lawn with flower beds to borders stocked with various shrubs/hedges and fruit trees. A Summerhouse is included in the sale along with two timber storage units, both with power and lighting. These two timber storage units are currently in use as storage and utility rooms with a tumble dryer and washing machine (with plumbing) in situ. There is the potential to convert these to use as adequate working from home space.
