Property SummaryWe are proud to bring to the market this quaint character bungalow which is set back from the High Street along with just three other similar style properties that all benefit from a stunning view of a picturesque green area.
The bungalow has been ideally laid out to offer living accommodation on one side and bedroom accommodation to the other. To the front there is a large living room which is centred around the charming multi-fuel burner. The living room is linked to the kitchen via a cosy dining room which could be used as a hobbies’ room or playroom if required.
The kitchen is at the rear of the property and is fitted with cream country style units, there is also an Aga and space for varying appliances. From the kitchen there is access to a cloakroom and also a large conservatory which looks out onto the mature rear garden and would make an ideal dining room.
The remaining accommodation includes two double bedrooms one of which benefits from built-in wardrobes and a family bathroom which features a large corner bath.
A particular feature is the beautiful rear garden which spreads over varying levels. It offers a vast array of mature flowers and shrubs as well as a reasonable patio area. Beyond the garden there are open fields so the property maintains its privacy from all angles. The garden is also home to a larger than usual carport which provides excellent storage and plenty of parking for multiple vehicles. Further off road parking is available on the shingle driveway that is accessed through a private road off the High Street.
Further advantages include oil fired central heating via a recently replaced boiler, PVCu double glazed windows, a convenient pantry cupboard and a large loft space with future potential to extend subject to the necessary consents.

Harrold & Odell
Harrold sits to the north of the Great River Ouse, 15 miles from both Northampton and Milton Keynes and 9 miles north west of Bedford with a population of around 1500.
It attracts many visitors to the Harrold Odell Country Park, a quarry site that has been developed and maintained by the council since 1980 to house a number of habitats.
The park has wetlands, play areas, skate park, fishing (in its two lakes and on the banks of the Ouse) and visitor centre with café.
The village schools became part of the Sharnbrook Federation in 2017 and there is a medical practice, playing fields, pub and couple of take away/restaurants.
In 2013 it was voted in a Sunday Times survey as one of the Top 100 places to live in the UK with a Good Neighbours program and an array of activities in the village that include amateur dramatics, choir, WI, allotments and bell ringing.
Odell sits north west of Bedford with a small population (under 300 in the last census) and has a rich history with evidence of a farm from the Roman Invasion. The Church of All Saints was built in the 15th century although evidence of a church dates to the 12th century.
Flooded sand and quarry pits adjoining Harrold led to the formation of the Harrold Odell Country Park opening in the 1980’s, home to two lakes and abundant wildlife in the managed habitats.
It is also home to Santa Pod, a drag racing track built on a former RAF airfield that hosts 50 plus events a year that include National drag racing, VW festivals, retro and classic car events.
