    About this property

    • Greenhill is a Grade II listed five bedroom period house with an additional two bedroom annexe in the village of Heydon, conveniently placed for train links from Royston into Kings Cross (journeys taking from 36 minutes), Gatwick and from Audley End into both Cambridge and London Liverpool St, as well as the M11 junction 10 (6.2 miles approx.) to both the north and south.

      The house has two entrances; the rear leading to the staircase hall which provides access to the majority of the ground floor rooms. The three main reception spaces span the front and include a panelled dining room, with fitted corner cupboard and woodburner within a stripped wooden fire surround and open studwork; the spacious drawing room with brick flooring, an Inglenook fireplace at each end one retaining the bread oven, exposed timbers; and the snug, which connects with the adjacent kitchen to the rear of the house. Here there is brick flooring and a wide chimney breast with bressumer housing the (calor gas fired) four oven Aga. There are a range of fitted cupboards, a built in dishwasher and windows overlooking the terrace and gardens. A part glazed door leads to the Utility/boot room with a calor gas fired boiler a butler sink, plumbing and space for a washing machine and dryer. A cloaks/shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.

      On the first and second floors there are wonderful distant views over the rolling countryside. The landing leads to three double bedrooms and family bathroom with roll-top bath, the larger of the three having a dressing area and wardrobe and also benefits from plumbing, as we gather it used to feature a wash basin. The second floor is approached from the landing via a wooden staircase to two further bedrooms. There is a second family bathroom that completes this floor.

      There is an area of lawned garden to the front with pollarded trees and a shingle drive leads to a parking area to one side of the house and terrace and to the detached two storey building with store and independent heating. This is ideal for a number of uses - ideal for a home office, guest accommodation or AirBnB with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The large gardens (extending to 0.83 acres) are delightful with a variety of mature trees including apples, pears, beech and bay a possible vegetable area and it backs onto farmland with distant views.

    This house is such a treat, where do I start? I particularly love the stunning main reception room with two Inglenook fireplaces and the really versatile detached two storey annexe which has so many potential uses, oh and the view! In my view, it's all well worth a visit
