About this property

  • Campion House is a large detached house of Cambridgeshire brick under a mainly clay tiled roof. Situated in an attractive mature garden close to the centre of the village the house was refurbished and extended by the current owners and provides appealing space highly suited to occupation by a large family.

    The main sitting room has an open fireplace a deep bay to the side with window seat and sliding patio doors leading out to the garden and adjacent outdoor swimming pool. There is a separate dining room, family room and study and a characterful wood floored “billiard room” with dado height panelling. The kitchen/breakfast room was added as part of the main alterations carried out in 1996/1997 and is a square room with vaulted ceiling and wide sliding doors leading out on to a covered veranda. Featuring a range of Maple fitted kitchen units with Formica work surfaces over and integrated appliances. There is also separate utility room which provides internal access to the integral double garage.

    The remainder of the accommodation accessed via the woodblock floored entrance hall leads to two bedrooms, one currently the master is dual aspect with a refitted en suite shower and separate dressing room, the second bedroom with built in wardrobes is alongside. At first floor level there are four bedrooms, one with an en suite shower, a large family bathroom and a walk-in store cupboard.

    Outside
    A private shingled drive way leads up to a pair of automatic remotely controlled entrance gates and the drive continues between two tall topiary Yews and leads to a large shingled parking area and, to the left, the integral double garage and the double carport. The gardens are mainly situated to the south and east of the house and include numerous mature trees and shrubs and a large level lawn on the eastern side. The heated outdoor swimming pool has a paved surround and beyond this is further lawn. The outlook beyond the boundaries is mainly wooded and secluded.

    Additional Information
    The owners of Campion House have divided its original site and constructed for themselves a brand new architect designed house reached via a separate access from “Maynards”. The privacy currently enjoyed by Campion House has not been compromised by the development. Please note that the site plan is approximate and not measured.

This is a real find, hidden down a private drive close to the heart of this popular and commutable village – it would work really well for active downsizers keen to live on one level but with plenty of space for when the family come to stay - all within walking distance of the well regarded local restaurant and village shop.
