The five-bedroom bedroom detached property on High Street, Silsoe, is being marketed by Michael Graham estate agents (see listing here).

It has a traditional wall facade and is situated in the village conservation area, a short walking distance from all amenities.

The property is believed to date from the late 17th century and has pebble-dashed and white- washed walls beneath a clay hipped roof.

Traditional brick hearth lies at the heart of this sitting room

There is over 3,370sq ft of accommodation over four floors including a cellar, which is currently being used as a home gym.

The L-shaped hallway provides access to a sitting room/snug, a separate dining room, and a refitted ground floor shower room with underfloor heating. There is also a family room, a kitchen and breakfast room and a utility room on the ground floor.

The first floor has four double bedrooms, including the master bedroom which has an open plan en-suite. The second floor has a further double bedroom and a room which could be used as a study or sixth bedroom.

A gated entrance opens into the driveway which provides parking and access to the double width garage which has a remotely operated door, power connected and a door to the side.

The walled gardens wrap around the side and rear of the house, and face towards the south west.

The dining room has a traditional brick fireplace and exposed ceiling beams. The large sitting room has a tiled floor, a brick feature fireplace with timber bressumer and a corner storage cupboard.

The gardens at the side are paved and have mature shrubs, bushes and a water feature. The main garden at the rear includes an extensive paved area, adjoining the house, which is covered by a pergola with vines growing over.
