    • Broadfields is a substantial family home set on the fringes of the popular villages of Great and Little Sampford. It is surrounded by open countryside with some magnificent views and enjoys wonderful sunsets to the West.

This is largely centered around a large open plan kitchen/family/living area with a range of custom built wall and base units, island unit and integrated high end appliances including a Quooker hot water tap, induction hob, double ovens with a plate warmer. This room enjoys a triple aspect over the gardens enveloping the house with bi-folding doors onto a decked seating area. Just off the kitchen there is a pantry.

      There are three further reception rooms including a drawing room with wood burning stove, a large study and a third reception which could be used as a TV room. There is a guest cloakroom, a walk in coats cupboard and at one end of the house a boot room/utility room, adjacent to which is a fourth room, currently used as a dining room but which could provide a ground floor bedroom if required.

      Upstairs, there are five bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms, with the master in addition having a walk in dressing room and enjoying some panoramic countryside views. The three further bedrooms share a family bathroom with shower.

      On the outside, the house is set in mature and partly landscaped gardens with paddock areas and meadows totalling around 7.3 acres. There are various fruit trees dotted around the garden and to the back of the house, there is a covered seating area and various decked spots from which to enjoy the view including a custom built covered pergola set in over a Koi pond, which provides an all year round entertainment and dining space.

      Within the grounds, there are various outbuildings including a wood store, a tractor shed and a large partly converted barn which provides excellent storage space and a mezzanine office space for independent working. Finally, there is a flat lawned area that could be used as a grass tennis court set to the side of the house. A large detached garage has double roller shutter doors with an additional side car port. The house itself is set behind a recently landscaped carriage driveway frontage with a bonded resin finish with neatly kept flowerbeds interspersed.
