Property Description

Carlton House is a truly elegant and modernised family home, located with countryside to the front and rear and benefitting from a fine plot of around two acres (sts).

The property consists of a substantially remodelled detached dwelling of over 4,000 square feet along with a large detached garage/office complex of another 2,406 square feet. The large office area is a unique selling point and could be of interest to those wishing to run a business from home, or requiring a considerable storage facility.

The house has an open plan entrance hall, with a large galleried landing above which is befitting of a property of this stature. The contemporary and open plan theme is immediately evident with the meandering tiled hallway offering access to all ground floor rooms. The living room runs from the front to the back of the house and has an oak floor, an open fireplace, ceiling spot lights and double doors to the rear.

The kitchen/breakfast room has been totally refitted and has a large array of quality light walnut fronted units, with granite worktops. There is a large granite topped island unit housing an induction hob and there are integrated appliances including double ovens, a coffee machine and a microwave.

There are two further reception rooms currently used as family and dining rooms which both overlook the front elevation. To the rear of the ground floor there is laundry/utility area which has a particularly large utility room, a cloakroom and a boiler room which houses the oil fired central heating boiler.

There is a large master bedroom with fitted storage units, a vaulted ceiling, a balcony and an en suite shower room. The remaining four bedrooms have use of two bath/shower rooms and a sixth bedroom has been converted from the loft space. The first floor landing area is a particular feature with a large picture window and could easily accommodate a study area if required.

Carlton House is approached via an in and out drive with a large shingled parking area. The boundaries have mature hedgerows and trees with the majority of the garden areas being laid to lawn. There are also varying seating areas with leylandi screening.

The garage/office complex is a significant area with large open plan and separate areas which could suit varying uses. It has its own heating system, a kitchen, and two WCs. The possibilities are endless.

Wilden is located around six miles from Bedford and offers good access to the A1, M1 and Milton Keynes. Nearby Bedford offers a broad range of services and amenities, which include the Harpur Trust Schools and other independent schools. Closer to the village itself there are local state schools, and the nearby village of Great Barford offers varying amenities. Bedford's mainline railway station offers fast and frequent services to the capital.
