Tenure: Freehold

Dwarf Pyramids is the perfect house for easy family living and entertaining. Built by the current owners and recently extended, it affords any potential buyer to purchase a wonderful village home with superb and very well laid out accommodation. Leading off the large reception hall are some wonderful reception rooms including a lovely drawing room with open fireplace and doors opening to the terrace, a study with bespoke shelving and cupboards, spacious dining room and a stunning kitchen/breakfast room opening to a vaulted garden room, again with open fireplace and Ash flooring throughout. The kitchen has an extensive range of attractive painted units and is fitted with an oil fired Aga, double oven, built in dishwasher and fridge freezer. It opens through to the breakfast room which has a matching dresser and units and doors to the terrace. Steps lead down to the garden/family room which is a fantastic space with raised open fireplace, vaulted ceiling and further doors to the terrace. All reception rooms boast beautiful garden views. There is also a cloakroom with large storage cupboards and utility room (with boiler and water softener). The five bedrooms on the first floor are all a good size and all have fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom is double aspect over the garden and has a dressing room and en-suite bathroom. There is an en-suite shower room to one of the guest rooms and a further bathroom serves the other three bedrooms. All rooms lead off a large landing with two airing cupboards with two water tanks.

Bygrave is a small hamlet situated just 2 miles from both the well-served town of Baldock and from the much-sought after, thriving village of Ashwell. Just 18 miles from Cambridge and with its own railway station (on the Cambridge to London line), Ashwell has much to recommend it. There are excellent amenities including a village store, bakers and butchers, post office, gift shop & café, pharmacy, three pubs and a doctor's surgery. Baldock and Letchworth Garden City offer easily reachable extensive recreational and retail facilities for a complete lifestyle. Schooling for all ages, both state and private, is readily available in the area including a primary school in Ashwell, Knights Templar in Baldock, St Christopher's and St Francis in Letchworth as well as Heath Mount and Haileybury together with all schools in Cambridge and Bedford.
Road links are excellent with easy access to the A505 and the A1 offering excellent links to London, the M25, the M11 and Stansted and Luton airports. There are excellent commuter rail links with a number of very convenient options in the area from Baldock, Ashwell & Morden (Cambridge from 24 mins) and Stevenage.

The gardens of Dwarf Pyramids are a credit to the owners. Approached over a gravelled driveway lined by lime trees, the house sits centrally in its large plot and is surrounded by the most beautiful and abundant landscaped grounds. The drive is flanked by lawns and gives access to the detached double garage with wooden conventional doors. There is a timber gate leading through to a small walled courtyard leading through to the rear gardens. A great deal of thought and care has gone into the layout of the gardens with a circular lawned garden with central water feature enclosed by stunning hedging and well stocked borders. A gap in the hedge leads back to a further lawn which backs onto neighbouring orchard and leads round to the vegetable and herb gardens. There is a large garden brick potting shed, perfect for the budding gardener and a summer house tucked into one corner of the back lawn providing the perfect private place for enjoying the evening. Across the back of the house is large paved terrace which links the drawing room and the garden room affording excellent al fresco entertaining space.
