Full description

An exceptional modern residence set in ONE AND A QUARTER ACRES with substantial RIVER FRONTAGE. The spacious accommodation approaching 5,500 square feet comprises a large reception hall, FOUR RECEPTION ROOMS, conservatory and CONSERVATORY.

Always considered to be a prime location, Hemingford Abbots is a very pretty village with riverbank views and beautiful walks through picturesque countryside. Located along a quiet leafy lane The Gables is a home of exceptional quality and bespoke design.

"It's a very sought after area and we had to wait a while for a property to come on the market," explains Vic. "When The Gables came along we didn't hesitate. It started out as a bungalow and we've completely rebuilt it into the home you see today. It's been a labour of love for us and the finished result is something for which we're both very proud."

"We employed an architect to help us realise our vision for The Gables and we've watched the project grow from drawings on paper to this amazing family home. We doubled the size of the space to create grand spacious rooms that allow for formal or informal gatherings. The hallway is a most welcome and inviting space and is just a promise of what lies beyond - it's a home that lends itself to entertaining and we've had many successful parties here. When friends come to visit they are amazed at the size of the rooms and how bright the house is."

The garden is a long plot of land that commands some spectacular views of the river. "We've designed the garden into 2 specific areas," continues Pauline, "from the house there are lawns, a patio area and a large decking area for al fresco dining. A gateway leads you into a wonderful wooded area that has an abundance of flora and fauna to enjoy and from there, we can observe the bend in the river and all the magnificent views throughout the entire year."

"It's a truly magical spot all framed with huge willows and other trees. Occasionally small day boats row by or fishermen try a bit of sport across from our vantage point. For the artist it's the ideal spot for painting, sketching or to photograph. But, if all you want is to escape for a while and soak up some peace and quiet, then this is the perfect sanctuary."
