A family home combined with exceptional equestrian facilities, set in a plot approaching two acres including paddocks, a manege, barns, three stables and a wooded area. The house offers five bedrooms, four on the first floor and one on the ground floor with en suite, ideal for a dependant relative, home working or a studio with its own entrance. The ground floor is very spacious with a large kitchen breakfast room, conservatory, dining room, study and utility room. Formal gardens with mature borders wrap around the house and include a large patio area, pond and vegetable plot.
We knew Little Gables would be perfect for our family as it would allow us to achieve our dream of keeping our two horses at home and that it would offer all the space we would ever need for the children to play and grow up in, says Roger and Nancy. The house itself is light and bright, with a dual aspect lounge that lets you really appreciate the views. The house has great flow allowing gatherings to spill out on to the patio area during the summer months.It was ideal for our children, as they could go out into the woods and fields without us having to worry about their safety. They would ride bikes, go camping, and ride horses in the mnage all without having to leave our land.
Since we moved here in 2003, we have added a conservatory to the property. Its a great spot to sit with a cup of tea and watch our pony grazing in the field. We have kept the house to a high standard, refurbishing the kitchen and the bathrooms over the years, Roger and Nancy continue.
The location offers the best of both worlds, as were really in the peace and quiet of the countryside, and yet the pretty market town of St Neots is only a five minute drive away. There we can do all of our shopping or catch a direct train into London.
We think that the house would suit a family, perhaps one that is interested in keeping horses or training dogs as they can make the most of the great facilities we have here at Little Gables. The ground floor room would be ideal for someone who would like to run their own business from home, or it could be used by elderly relatives or teenagers who want their own space, conclude Roger and Nancy.
The kitchen is really the heart of the home. Its very spacious with a big dining table where the children would always sit to do their homework whilst we were cooking. French doors open onto a lovely patio area that spans the back of the property, creating a wonderful space for entertaining.
Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area
The bespoke conservatory is a place to relax and savour the views and seclusion of the garden and the paddocks beyond. Whilst the French doors, open in summer, allows a blending of inside and outside living.
There is so much to appreciate here, and its a great family place to be. We have had lots of family gatherings and parties here over the years and it holds lots of memories of the children growing up.
What theyll miss the most/why theyre moving
We will miss the feeling of space and privacy that this property gives us, waking up at sun rise, drawing the curtains back, and watching the horses grazing in the paddock and catching glimpses of a fox or a deer. Sadly the time has come to move nearer family and down size, but we will really miss this home and cherish the memories.
