Description

Ground Floor

The grand entrance boasts original Victorian tiling throughout the hallway and stained glass windows on the front door. To the left is a spacious sitting room with a bay window and replacement double-glazed windows in the original style sash windows. The room features a fireplace with a log-burning stove and enjoys views to the front of the home.

Following the sitting room, there is a dining room with original features and a log-burning stove. It has a bay window to the side overlooking the garden and courtyard. Both the dining room and sitting room have original deep skirting boards and detailed cornices.

A cellar is located in the hallway, providing excellent storage. Additionally, there is a storage cupboard and W/C beyond the dining room.

The central snug at Diamond House is an intimate sitting area with a log-burning stove and an archway leading to the kitchen dining room. The dining space within the kitchen features double patio doors leading to the courtyard. The kitchen is equipped with an extensive range of floor and wall-mounted shaker-style units, granite work surfaces, built-in appliances, a butler sink, and a four-door AGA. The central island in the kitchen provides additional storage and creates a welcoming environment. Additionally, there is a significant utility room with ample floor and wall-mounted storage, provisions for a washing machine and tumble dryer, and a door leading to the garden.

The open-plan family room, which is connected to the kitchen, serves as the heart of the home and features bi-folding doors that lead to the garden. This space is equipped with oak flooring and has a door leading to the rear entrance. Additionally, there is an inner hallway with a downstairs study that offers views over the courtyard. If needed, this study could be used as a reception room for the bedrooms in this part of the home, creating a self-contained annexe. However, the current layout is ideal for large families, as it provides separate reception rooms throughout the house.

First and Second Floor

Bedroom one is spacious and offers stunning views of the Bedfordshire countryside. It features a bay window and original character details. The current owners have converted the adjacent bedroom into a dressing room, but it can easily be converted back into a separate bedroom. The dressing area has fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room. On the same floor, there is a large family bathroom with a free-standing roll-top bath, a separate shower, and modern sanitary ware.

Moving up to the second floor, there are two additional double bedrooms and a large storage room that could be used as a sixth bedroom. Both bedrooms have ample space and pleasant views. At the rear of the house, another two bedrooms are accessible via a separate staircase. These rooms are both doubles with built-in storage and Velux windows that let in plenty of natural light. They are served by a separate shower room. These private rooms could be used as separate accommodation if desired.

Garden

After passing through electric double gates, you will find a large courtyard with space for five cars. The front garden features a lawn area and mature flower beds.

Towards the rear, the garden boasts mature shrubs and borders, as well as several fruit trees. There is a gravel and patio area at the back of the house, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee. Additionally, there are raised vegetable planters, a pond, and a decking area that includes a barbecue, making it perfect for outdoor entertaining.
