About this property

  • Situated in the South Cambridgeshire village of Barton, Barton House is an exceptional Victorian house which has been refurbished throughout to an exact standard by the current owner.

    The property is approached via large wooden electric gates opening onto on to a pea shingle driveway which sweeps towards the house and then up to the impressive Gothic front door.

    Through a large vestibule, the house opens into an incredible hall with marble flooring and vaulted ceilings where the quality of workmanship and finishes are immediately apparent. To the right, the hall opens in to a large reception room which is currently used as a study but could have a multitude of uses given its size. To the left is a large drawing room and dining room with interconnecting double doors. There is a further door to connect to the kitchen which can also be accessed from the hall.

    The kitchen breakfast room has modern shaker style solid wood kitchen units, a wide range of built-in appliances including an Aga and separate Gaggenau oven and a mix of polished light coloured granite and wooden work surfaces. Adjoining is a large utility room with further appliances.
    Beyond the kitchen is a gorgeous orangery with stone patterned flooring, views and access onto a York stone terrace and the gardens beyond.

    An interconnecting hall which can be accessed from the garden or courtyard at the rear of the house leads to the indoor swimming pool complex. The large swimming pool with a vaulted ceiling is fully tiled with pretty blue mosaic tiles and has an electric rolling cover. There is space for a yoga area, a bar with granite work surfaces, steam room, sauna, shower and changing room, toilet and upstairs via a spiral staircase is space for a home gym.

    There is a cloakroom, further bedroom and study which completes the ground floor accommodation.

    Upstairs the wide Gothic staircase leads to a galleried landing. There is a wonderful principal bedroom which includes a large marble bathroom with sanitary ware of exceptional quality, with twin sinks, a separate shower with seating area, WC, and beyond to a large dressing room. The quality continues throughout all the other bedrooms on the upper floors, with two en suite bedrooms and a further bedroom with access to a family bathroom.

    There is a further outbuilding which is heated via air source heat pumps and comprises three more bedrooms and approximately 3,602 sq ft of accommodation which offers a myriad of uses.

    The tennis court which has been resurfaced under the stewardship of the current owner is situated behind the outbuilding at the rear of the grounds.

    The house sits well in its grounds which offer a wide range of specimen trees, a band stand, large filtered pond, and summer house. If required, there is separate access leading to a parking area and two large oil tanks.

    In all about 2.26 acres

This is the epitome of what gorgeous looks like. I just love this house and there isn't a single room which does not exude stylish perfection.
