Tenure: Freehold

If you're the sort of person who longs to live in a peaceful little village with a cosy pub on your doorstep, then this could be perfect for you. Especially if you don't want the hassle of a long commute to work, but you still want the convenience of good schools and shops close by. But you probably don't want to compromise too much on the quality of your home - it has to be bright, spacious, contemporary. Maybe you work at the Science Park in Cambridge? Easy peasy - Its only a 25 minute drive. Maybe you want to upsize for your expanding family?

If that's your wish list, come and see this one!

The Ridings is a beautiful contemporary bungalow in the heart of the small, pretty village of Colne. Now maybe you've never heard of Colne? Well its very conveniently located, 10 minutes north east of the beautiful market town of St Ives, 9 miles east of Huntingdon, with easy access to Cambridge.

The village is in the middle of countryside and orchards, with many of its houses grouped around a triangular village green. It only has the Green Man pub (we'll take you there when you come to see it), a church and village hall. The nearby village of Bluntisham is half a mile away and has shops and the local primary school, St Helens, which was rated "Good" by Ofsted in 2015. St Ivo Secondary School and Swavesey Village College are both less than 5 miles away. St Ives really is a lovely town with plenty of shops, restaurants and amenities, and its only about 10 minutes away.

Getting in to the Science Parks, central Cambridge or Addenbrooke's is a doddle - no need to use the A14 if you don't want. You can drive cross country to join the A10 at Stretham, or you can go down the B1050 to join the A14 at Bar Hill and missing most of the morning jam. Even simpler, you can get to the Park and Ride in St Ives in 10 minutes, for the 20 minute bus ride direct to the Science Park. You can even get the bus which stops a few yards down the road and travel directly in to Cambridge. Huntingdon Railway station is reachable in 20 minutes or so if you need to get the fast train to Kings Cross. So, even though you're in this delightful, peaceful village, your never too far from the places you need to be.

The Ridings is a well equipped family home and has more than enough space for versatile living. You've got a fabulous open plan kitchen and living area which has bi folding doors opening onto the patio and secure large garden. Perfect for those summer parties and alfresco living! With the property sitting on approximately a third of an acre there is loads of space for the family to enjoy and your children to play!

And don't you be thinking there are high bills to match this large property as it boasts several solar panels and a back boiler reducing the average monthly bills.

In the summer months why not enjoy a tad of sunbathing in the quiet and secluded large garden or perhaps sit by the roaring fire in either the lounge or kitchen / family area?

You've got five good sized bedrooms and one with an en suite bathroom over looking the beautiful garden.

There's a large sweeping graveled driveway at the front with plenty of room to park up to six cars. A gate to the side leads you to the sunny back garden which has a wide patio and lawn.

We expect considerable interest in this house so don't delay - . We are open 24/7 and do accompanied viewings evenings, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays as well as during the week if you wish! That's just one of the many reasons we've got 5 stars on the independent review website Trustpilot. Ewemove Sales and Lettings - the UK's Most Trusted Estate Agent.
