Sitting back from the road on an idyllic plot of approximately half of an acre, with a sweeping drive to the front and a babbling brook to the rear, Flintwood Cottage is a picture perfect cottage that could be your fairytale home in the country.
This lovely thatched cottage has been de-listed following a complete rebuild between 2000 and 2010. The property sits on an insulated foundation and the renovation has been done sympathetically and to the highest of standards throughout using only suitable and good quality materials, such as oak for all the woodwork and replacement wattle and daub where needed.
The addition of a magnificent barn conversion, which is connected to the main cottage by a new link, offers a stunning kitchen, dining and living space. French doors open out onto the lovely garden to the rear, and a stable door opens onto the front. The impressive kitchen is the focus of one end of this incredible open plan space, and has been finished to the highest standard with oak carcasses and doors, granite worktops, a gas Aga, and Smeg oven and hob. This is a perfect entertaining space, and to top it off you can control the zoned mood lighting to set the tone of your gathering.
This beautiful home is located in the sought after village of Riseley in Bedfordshire, and sits within Sharnbrook Acadamy School catchment and is a stones throw from Riseley middle school. Kimbolton independent school is a short drive away, and Bedford is easily accessible for all of its great schools, and a wealth of shops, eateries and fast trains into London.
Riseley is surrounded by fantastic country side which you can explore on foot, bike or from the saddle with plenty of footpaths and bridle ways to explore. Finish a days exploring at the local pub or pick up a few bits from the local shop or cafe.
