‘It feels like a village, but it’s only ten minutes from town!’ This is how Cleatwood House’s current owners describe its enviable position high above the historic market town of Bedford – and it’s just one of many qualities that will delight anyone who views this exceptional and unique property.
The long entranceway and hillside location set the house apart both physically and visually - yet it’s barely a stone’s throw from both park and golf course.
Its ‘work anywhere’ layout features not only a study, but also a breakfast room, summer room, and covered balcony.
Its serious indoor and outdoor entertainment credentials include a patio, permanent barbecue station, games room, landscaped gardens, and tranquil pond (plus an additional kitchen space to cater for hordes of hungry guests!)
And all this in an innovative design that gives access to the garden both upstairs and downstairs – a guaranteed talking point.
Shall we venture further?
At the top of the town, at the top of the house – that’s how living is done at Cleatwood!
The combined first-floor living room and dining room form an expansive, airy space, with a subtle split-level separation that both defines each room yet enables them to seamlessly come together as a real household hub.
And as with most of Cleatwood, you’re never far from the great outdoors. The living room and its delightful adjoining summer room open directly onto the balcony, offering glorious garden and countryside views.
SPEND EVERY NIGHT IN LUXURY
When the day at Cleatwood is done, the night delivers the same stand-out levels of comfort and opulence enjoyed during your waking hours.
With a master suite of dimensions that can only be described as cavernous, and three further spacious double bedrooms, one of which is en suite, a night spent at Cleatwood is something you’ll want to tell your friends about – and they’ll want to hear.
(Why not invite them over to stay so they can experience it – and tell their friends – too?)
LIGHT, SPACE, WORK, PLAY
In Cleatwood House, light and space are everywhere.
The grand, imposing reception area, for example, where light floods in through the roof and on all sides, creates a marvellous environment for parties and other social gatherings.
The breakfast room, too, is an agreeable ‘sun trap’, adding natural light and warmth to those precious, relaxing minutes with a morning cup of something – with or without laptop!
And when the day’s labour is finished, the full-sized games room – slate-bed snooker table included – is a great place to play as hard as you’ve just worked.
A PERFECT LOCATION
Cleatwood House marries the tranquillity, pursuits, and beauty of the countryside with a mere ten-minute drive to supermarkets, schools, cinemas, theatres, hospitals, garages, and all the trappings of a busy, thriving town.
Stride out at the nearby Mowsbury Hillfort. Stroll or jog in the park. Play a round of golf (and buy a round of drinks). Enjoy the stunning, verdant view from your balcony. Park your pride and joy in the double garage (where there’s scope for an annexe, if you ever need one!)
And know that you have this life to enjoy, wherever and however you work.
