A rare opportunity to acquire this Grade Two listed detached thatched cottage which dates back to the 1600's. The property is set in the centre of a generous plot which you approach from Church Road and is located within the heart of the sought after village of Willington.

This home would benefit from some modernisation whilst retaining the many character features that the property offers. These features include a fully thatched roof, wall and ceiling beams and an inglenook fireplace along with wooden latched doors and leaded light windows.

The accommodation on the ground floor includes an entrance hall leading to both the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has space for a breakfast table and has a Rayburn oven whilst the dining room enjoys the inglenook fireplace. An opening between the beams leads from the dining room to the living room where you have views to the gardens via the patio doors. The master bedroom which has an en suite shower room is also located on the ground floor.

The first floor of the cottage is accessed via a staircase from the dining room and leads in to one of three double bedrooms.

Further benefits to the home include gas fired central heating and a gas living flame log effect burner situated in the inglenook. There is also a ground floor bathroom and utility room. The property is being offered with no upper chain.

The gardens wrap around the cottage and are mainly laid to lawn bordered by established trees, hedges, flowers and shrubs. There is a paved patio area which is positioned by patio doors from the living room. Two timber barns are located on the plot ideal for storage or coverage for a car. Vehicular access to the property is via a five bar gate and driveway.

Location:
Willington is a very popular village location which has its own Public House, village store, Frosts' Garden centre and the Danish Camp - a popular Riverside café and restaurant. The facilities of Sandy and access to the A1 and East coast rail into Kings Cross are around four miles away with Bedford's town centre being some five miles distant. Schools in Bedford are excellent, notably those of the Harpur Trust. Both towns offer mainline railway stations for fast and frequent services to the capital from just thirty-four minutes. Bedford's southern bypass, the A421, is also conveniently located for swift access to the A1 and M1 (J13).
