About this property

  • The Old Nurseries is a substantial timber framed Potton family home that sits in a generous and private plot which has recently undergone a number of refurbishments, including complete replacement of all windows and French doors and full weather proofing of the rendered exterior.

    On entering there is a spacious hallway with imperial staircase giving the house a feeling of space and grandeur. The impressive kitchen breakfast room has been fitted with a bespoke American oak kitchen with granite worktops. There are a comprehensive range of integrated appliances including a combi oven, double over and dishwasher. A useful laundry room and utility/boot room provide access to the gardens. There are three very well proportioned reception rooms; a dining room, sitting room and snug. The snug has a wonderful fireplace with multi-fuel burner. The delightful sitting room, boasting a triple aspect and wood burner, connects to the dining room with glazed French doors opening onto the gardens. There is a further study, cloakroom and large coat cupboard.

    The first floor layout has been designed to accommodate a luxurious principal bedroom suite with high vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. The en suite bathroom has a walk in rainfall shower, bath and twin basins. Adjacent to the master bedroom is a dressing room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    The Coach House
    The Coach House, formally a detached garage, was beautifully converted, to high standard by the current owner approximately 13 years ago. The accommodation offers two double bedrooms and a large shower room on the ground floor with a light bright living space with kitchen on the first floor. Outside the Coach House enjoys a private terrace.

    Gardens and Grounds
    The gardens and grounds provide a parkland setting with the tree lined driveway and turning circle offering a striking first impression. The open-fronted car port offers four bays for vehicles or boats. Set-away from the house is a substantial workshop with power, offering a workshop, garage and studio/gym. The gardens are mostly lawned with a summer house and, to the rear of the house, a sheltered, sunken terrace with pergola with an established vine and wisteria. For the keen gardener there is a substantial vegetable garden with greenhouse, shed and a rain water collection irrigation system.
