Property description

We are delighted to offer for sale this well kept and spacious two bedroom, en suite, second floor apartment located within the prestigious ‘Old Mill’ complex in Kempston close to the River Great Ouse.

The property is accessed via a communal entrance hall with stairs rising to the second floor with access to the apartment being from a private hallway. Inside the apartment is a good size living/dining area with a well equipped kitchen off, a master bedroom with en suite and a further double bedroom served by a family bathroom. The finishes to the property are all of the highest standard with gas fired central heating and PVCu double glazed windows included.

Externally the property sits close to the River Great Ouse where great walks can be found. There are two dedicated parking spaces to be sold with the property. Access to the ‘Old Mill’ complex is via electrically operated gates.

Kempston is a thriving small town that is annexed to Bedford and both provide comprehensive shopping and recreational facilities and good schooling. Kempston is well located to provide good access to Bedford’s Western relief road that gives access to the A421 linking the M1 at Junction 13 with the Black Cat roundabout on the A1. Bedford’s mainline railway station provides fast and frequent services to the capital from thirty-four minutes.
