A rare and unique opportunity to purchase this quietly situated, 5 bedroom detached former rectory located within the central Beds village of Houghton Conquest. This beautiful character property was built Circa 1891 and retains an abundance of original features. The property sits well back from the road and occupies an enviable plot of 0.487 of an acre (sts). Since occupation, the current owner has meticulously updated and maintained the property to the standard it is today. AGENTS NOTE: THE VENDOR CURRENTLY LEASES A FURTHER 0.936 OF AN ACRE FROM THE CHURCH NEXT DOOR AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS ARRANGEMENT IS TRANSFERABLE.


The property offers 2,523 sq. ft of living space and is approached via a double pillared gated entrance leading to a sweeping gravel driveway; the accommodation is as follows: Welcoming L shaped entrance hall with travertine and marble tiled floor giving direct access to all principle reception rooms, a spacious dual aspect dining room with feature fireplace, log burner, cornice and ceiling rose. The formal lounge is also dual aspect with a feature fire place and log burner, the family room is of good proportion and is located to the rear with views over the large rear garden; the vendor has installed a bespoke kitchen fitted in pine dove grey fronted units with a double butler sink and a range of eye and base level units, space for relevant appliances and double doors to the patio and rear garden, a nice size cellar and the cloakroom and utility area complete the ground floor layout. On the first floor: Large master bedroom, 3 further very good size double bedrooms (one with en suite shower room), 1 generous single bedroom which is adjacent to the master and if desired could easily be converted into a second en suite facility, and a family shower/bathroom with period sanitary ware. An internal inspection comes highly recommended to fully appreciate the quality combined with the plot and location. Externally to the front: Mature trees and shrubs, lawns, former coach store and garaging. To the rear: 2 newly laid patios with gazebo?s over, purpose-built BBQ area, gym room and storage barn. The large expanse of rear lawn overlooks open farmland.
