Situated in the peaceful Bedfordshire village of Colesden and surrounded by open countryside, this very attractive property will appeal to all sorts of buyers. The house itself stands at over 2,800 square feet and would make a fantastic family home. However, within the grounds and with its own separate vehicular access, there is also a large storage / work unit with lots of parking space, which provides almost limitless hobby / business potential as required. The grounds, whilst designed and used by the current owners for family use, would make a very picturesque wedding venue.

 

On the ground floor, there are four reception rooms, a generous kitchen breakfast room and very large utility / laundry. On the first floor, there is a large master suite with a dressing area, an en-suite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the gardens and lake. Two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.

 

In need of some TLC and modernising, Cherry Trees could be the ultimate ‘fixer-upper’, and with all the land and outbuildings, may well appeal to a developer or someone simply looking for their next project.

For families with children aged between 3 and 11, both Wilden Primary and Roxton Academy are under three miles away. For older children, there are numerous schools in Bedford, including Bedford Modern and Bedford Girls School just eight miles away and Kimbolton School is twelve miles away.
