5 bedroom country house for saleHigh Street, Foxton, Cambridge
Guide Price £1,150,000
Full descriptionBlackboys commands a prominent position close to the heart of the village in picturesque surroundings within delightful private gardens and grounds.
A former Public House (The Blackboy) and prior to that a Coaching Inn in the late 1700's known as "The Saracens Head", the house has had an interesting history. The Callin family purchased the property in 1954 and through two generations have lovingly restored and extended it to create, what is today, a truly impressive family home. The extensions have blended in beautifully with the original and internally the property boasts a wonderful period charm and character, with features such as fireplaces, exposed timbers and oak flooring all having been painstakingly restored to their former glory.
Particularly worthy of note is the stunning 'panelled' drawing room with inglenook fireplace, and large bay window overlooking the gardens, and elsewhere on the ground floor is a fine dining room and large kitchen/family room.
Upstairs there are 5/6 bedrooms, two with mezzanines and a master bedroom with en suite shower room plus smartly fitted family bathroom.
The workshop adjoining the kitchen/family room together with the rest of the outbuildings offer further conversion possibilities (subject to the necessary planning consents), although as it stands this fine home offers flexibility and space suitable for the largest of families.
The property stands back from the road and is approached via a gravelled driveway and car parking to the front of the house leading to open fronted garaging/car port, and adjoining store. The gardens to the front of the house are laid to a neatly trimmed formal lawn with shaped flower beds and borders, neatly planted with a variety of well established bushes and shrubs, and mature hedge borders provide maximum privacy and seclusion. There is side access to the rear garden area/potential pony paddock, and a range of further outbuildings including wood store and garden sheds. There is separate access to this garden area/paddock off the High Street. The gardens and grounds in all extend to approximately 3/4 of an acre.
