Property Description

Full description

This unique residence is tucked away down a quiet cul-de-sac, right in the heart of the Offords. The Old Barn is a well-appointed luxury five bay barn conversion finished in a contemporary style, offering four bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a significant combination of period features. The Old Barn is thought to have origins from as early as the 16th century and was originally part of the estate belonging to the Manor House.

The barn had a full renovation in the 1980s and was completely reconstructed and transformed into the impressive home that it is today. The current owners bought the barn in the 1990s and over the recent years, have spent time modernising the property to a high standard. The design of the property is such that the exposed brick linings can be seen throughout the ground floor rooms. The barn provides versatile accommodation, designed and spread over five bays, approximately 3000sqft on two floors with a masterful galleried landing.

Highlights of this extensive home include a substantial master suite benefiting from a separate dressing room, en-suite shower room and bedroom looking out onto the landscaped garden. Also a stunning guest room providing welcome privacy for guests. On the ground floor, the property flows from bay to bay offering a combination of wonderful open plan space and formal reception rooms.

The shaker style kitchen, with granite worktops, is designed and kept to a high standard and compliments the period features. It leads into an informal lounging/dining space. A separate utility/boot room and cloakroom are tucked away with access onto the gardens. Moving through the accommodation a spacious entrance hall feeds into two further reception rooms, a study and a ground floor shower room.

Outside the well landscaped and low maintenance garden has a peaceful feel that is completely private, a large double garage with electric doors which houses space for two cars and ample storage with potential to extend into the roof. The elegant garden hosts a mix of shrubs and trees and a pond positioned in the centre.

Offord Cluny is a highly desirable village location with a local shop, The Three Horseshoes pub and a primary school, the busier town of St Neots is only a short drive with a variety of shops and the train station which has regular train links to Peterborough and London stations. The village is set in the picturesque Cambridgeshire country side, offering plenty of scenic walking and bridle routes.
