Bower Street, Bedford
4 bed house - mid terrace
Occupying a quiet location at the park end of the street, this recently improved period home lies close to Castle Road's amenities and the picturesque Embankment. The current owners have converted the loft to provide a generous fourth bedroom to add to the three first floor double bedrooms. There is a through living room with a bay window with window seat and shutters, a kitchen with a range cooker and a ground floor bathroom. The walled rear garden is larger than typical for the area and its mature plants and trees provide some privacy. Centrally located in the ever popular 'Castle Quarter', the property is close to a range of independent coffee and boutique shops with a good selection of pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. The 'outstanding' rated Castle Newnham primary school also holds a strong appeal for young families.
Several period features have been retained to include fireplaces to the living room and two first floor bedrooms - the fireplace to the front living area remains in working order. Plans have also been passed for an extension to the first floor to provide a bathroom and larger third bedroom also resulting in a larger kitchen space downstairs; the planning consent remains and the drawings are available, on request. Russell Park is within a stone's throw of the house with attractive river walks and Priory Country Park beyond. The property is within a mile of Bedford's town centre which provides a wide range of retail and leisure facilities and, for the commuter, a fast rail link into London's St Pancras.
