About this property

  • An attractive and unlisted farmhouse in an elevated position, the property sits within gardens and paddocks of 9.6 acres, or thereabouts.

    Approached by a gated carriage driveway, with ample parking and garaging, the abiding feel is one of space and privacy, coupled with views.

    The house offers generously proportioned accommodation comprising five reception rooms and six large double bedrooms, served by five bath or shower rooms.

    Extended and partially reconfigured in 2008, when a separate planning (now lapsed) also permitted an indoor swimming pool complex adjoining the games room, the house has many fine features.

    A two bedroom annex, connected to the house by the garage, was converted from stables in 2011 and is ideal for relatives or as a home office (note - an inherited covenant limits the use to that of a single private dwelling house).

    Outside
    The lawned gardens are principally to the west of the house, with a tennis court, and the paddocks adjoining to the south. The entire property extends to 9.6 acres, or thereabouts.

I love this property's setting and find the views and the open nature of the landscape from the house impressive. With views over its nine acres of gardens and land, the property is convenient for commuters to Cambridge and to London via Huntingdon or Peterborough stations. With tennis court and annex, it is also a versatile lifestyle property and a convenient location for a family to base themselves in for several of the area's renowned private schools.
