A VERY RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A SUBSTANTIAL FREEHOLD HOME WITH AN ORIGINAL COACH HOUSE SET IN PRIVATE GROUNDS IN THE CENTRE OF WOBURN VILLAGE. Ansley House is an individual detached property set in a tucked-away yet central position in the heart of the historic market place of Woburn with its excellent choice of restaurants and specialist independent shops. Within yards of the property there are delightful walks to the village, church, doctors surgery and amongst the Duke of Bedford's Woburn Abbey Estate and Deer Park. The property was constructed in 1966 and comes to the market for the very first time and is offered with no chain. The accommodation is arranged over three floors comprising a spacious reception hall, living room, study, kitchen, utility, ample storage cupboards, six double bedrooms, shower and bathrooms. The property is approached via a quiet lane with virtually no passing traffic and of particular note is the original coach house which is 719sq ft. This building offers excellent garaging facilities for classic vehicles or endless possibilities for conversion to a detached annexe for an extended family, Air BnB accommodation providing income or as a work from home office/studio/gym etc. The house enjoys a south westerly facing position with gardens on all four sides and although cared for over the years would benefit from modernization and can be remodeled to create one of the most desirable homes in this most sought-after village. Freehold opportunities such as this are extremely rare and a viewing is recommended to appreciate the lifestyle that the location, grounds, house and the coach house have to offer. THE ACCOMMODATION A pillared storm porch and entrance door opens into the reception hall where stairs rise to the first floor. Within the hall there is a good amount of storage with two double cupboards, one of which houses the Worcester gas boiler for the hot water, a further single cupboard and a walk in utility cupboard which has plumbing for the washing machine and houses the warm air central heating unit. There is a shower room with wash basin and wc. Lying to the left of the entrance door, a dual aspect study has fitted book shelves and cupboards. With a pleasant south easterly aspect, the sitting room is 30 feet long and has an attached conservatory, all of which provide views over the private garden. The triple aspect kitchen flows from the sitting room and is fitted with a range of units, sink unit, granite work surfaces and a breakfast bar with window seat. Built in appliances include an AEG electric hob, Bosch double oven, microwave and dishwasher. There is a separate larder off the kitchen. Completing the ground floor there is a useful boot room providing additional storage and a rear door leads to the side driveway and garden. FIRST FLOOR A spacious bright landing has a staircase to the second floor and an airing cupboard with hot water cylinder. The main bedroom has triple aspect views with a walk in wardrobe and a wash hand basin, with bedroom two also having wardrobes and a wash hand basin. A family bathroom and a separate shower room serve these bedrooms and set at the southern end of the house bedroom four is triple aspect, has built in wardrobes, a wash hand basin and adjacent is a separate wc which could lend itself to an ensuite facility. A good size landing area has an eaves storage cupboard and provides access to two further bedrooms. The fifth bedroom is a particularly good size triple aspect room with two pairs of wardrobes and a walk in cupboard with a wash hand basin. The sixth double bedroom also has a wash basin. The whole of the second floor lends itself as an ideal teenage suite or work from home office space if required. THE COACH HOUSE The coach house is 55' in length and comprises three areas which can be separate or combined to suit. The principal area is a 26' x 20' garage/studio which has large bi-folding entrance doors, tall vaulted ceiling heights with ample lighting and power sockets. To the right of this there is a 16' x 15' garage/studio with double doors providing further garaging and storage whilst to the left an open fronted car port completes the Coach House. Subject to necessary consents, the Coach House offers great potential to convert to additional annexe accommodation for multi-generational living or for studio/office space should you work from home. OUTSIDE Approached via a private driveway which provides ample parking for several vehicles and to the left hand side there is a further block paved drive providing an additional two parking spaces. From the drive a wrought iron gate set into a garden wall leads to the front entrance and to the rear where the gardens wrap around Ansley House on all four sides. The main garden enjoys a south westerly aspect and is laid to lawn with a large terrace patio, planted borders and a heated swimming pool. There is an attractive brick, oak and tiled roof barbecue ''house' overlooking the pool.
