Property SummaryINVICTA HOUSE is a most gracious four bedroomed Victorian double fronted Villa set in the heart of this well thought of North Beds village. It has been a much loved home for 40 years and you can see evidence of that in each and every corner of the home.
When you enter the property the ground floor accommodation extends to three main spacious reception rooms. The many improvements and additions will quickly become self evident as you go through the house; the double glazing, the addition of a fine orangery/conservatory; the useful extra ground floor shower room; the refitting and restyling of the kitchen and laundry rooms. And on the first floor there are four bedrooms and a well fitted main bathroom.
Outside, the main formal garden area has clearly been a labour of love for the present owner and this is further enhanced by a large wooded paddock/meadow area. The total land with the property is believed to be in excess of 1.75 acres (sts)
From the front pathway a tiled step then gives access to the entrance porch. The front door is beautifully glazed with stained glass inserts. This then opens into
