The Heron at Chiswell Place3 bedroom semi-detached house for sale
New Cardington takes this historic area into an exciting new age. It was formerly reknowned as the home of the Royal Airship Works founded back in 1919. Barrage balloons were later built on the site. Today, it is gaining status as the smartest address in town. And by timely coincidence, well-known Cardington Sheds are being returned to their original purpose as a base for the new Airlander 10, the world’s longest aircraft which is expected to undertake commercial flights in the near future.
Chiswell Place is conveniently situated within easy reach of Bedford, approximately 4 miles away, and the area is served by bus. There’s a fast, frequent service from Bedford main line station to London St Pancras (and Eurostar). The smaller Bedford and St John’s railway station provides more local services. The M1 and A1 are easily reached by car, and London Luton Airport is just under 30 miles away. The new A421 (Bedford Southern Bypass) offers speedy access to Milton Keynes and Cambridge.
Bedford has all that you are ever likely to need, including a large retail sector, NHS general hospital, museum, and education for all ages - including the excellent Harpur Trust schools in Bedford (private) and the University of Bedford. There is a Tesco Superstore on Riverfield Drive, and Sainsbury’s at both Kempston and Fairfield Park. The well-known retail names in the town centre include Debenham’s, Marks & Spencer, Primark and a branch of Beales department stores, while The Arcade offers a wide selection of independent shops in a characterful setting. The town is also distinguished by the many colourful markets, home and garden, as well as antiques, arts and crafts markets and, at Christmas, a Victorian Fair. With fresh, local produce so readily available, cooking in your beautiful new kitchen should be a great success, and when you want to dine out there are plenty of restaurants, pubs and wine bars to discover.
It’s just as well that a brand new home tends to free up time as there are so many great ways to spend it here. Shows at the Corn Exchange, blockbusters at the Cineworld multi-screen cinema, fun in the flumes and rapids of Oasis Beach Pool, white water canoeing at Cardington Slalom Course, a work-out at Bunyan Sports Centre... and that’s without the attractions of annual events like Bedford-by-the-Sea and the River Festival. Conveniently close by for year-round enjoyment is Priory Park, a 200-acre expanse of countryside and lake walks. On the outskirts of Bedford, Mowsbury Golf Course has become known as the premier ‘pay and play’ golf and squash complex in the area.
