Seller Insight We could immediately see the potential of this property, which we have since converted into the home we wanted it to be,” say the current owners. Cranford, is a thoughtfully refurbished family home set back from the road in a family-friendly village location. “The views from the house and garden are beautiful,” the owners continue, “with the garden opening up onto fields at the rear. We like to sit out on one of the two patios in the evenings and enjoy a drink or al fresco dining. In nice weather, we often take our breakfast outside on the second patio, which really catches the sun.” The location of the property has much to offer in terms of both community and convenience, nestled in the heart of the picturesque Bedfordshire village of Oakley, just 10 minutes north of vibrant Bedford. “Our house is opposite the friendly local pub/restaurant,” say the owners, “which can be accessed through its back garden just across the road from our door. There are various sports clubs in the village including netball and football. The village shop is well stocked and open longer into the evening than most, while a haberdashery nearby runs courses in quilting and has a lovely little coffee shop in house. Our daughter goes to the local Lower School, one of two schools in the village, and our childminders live in Oakley too, enabling an easy blend of work and family life. There are plenty of peaceful walks where we take our dogs which include the lovely fields surrounding the village and also along the banks of the River Ouse.” “The living room and sociable kitchen are where we spend the most time as a family, both rooms being very cosy and welcoming.” “We will miss the log burning fire, which makes our home wonderfully cosy in the winter months – the perfect place to relax in the evening after a long day at work.” “With a choice of two patio areas, the sunny garden is a lovely place for summer entertaining and everyday family life alike.” “The house is ideal for entertaining. We have hosted numerous parties for adults and children, and even had my daughter’s christening celebrations here, with over 100 people in the garden on a memorable summer’s afternoon.”
