Full description

Kingston is a small village of about 80 houses situated just 8 miles south west of Cambridge and is a well kept secret. This exclusive hamlet, which provides instant access to footpaths and bridleways which lead through glorious countryside, offers the peaceful, rural idyll of a quintessentially English village combined with the hustle and bustle of Cambridge, which is only 15 to 20 minutes away by car. Even though there are no facilities in Kingston, there is an abundance of good shops, pubs, restaurants and sporting facilities, including two golf courses, very close by in the neighbouring villages of Bourn, Toft, Hardwick and Comberton. There are good primary schools in Bourn and Comberton, and Kingston falls within the catchment area of Comberton Village College, one of the UK's highest rated state secondary schools. Because of the fast train service into Kings Cross (40 minutes), most London commuters favour Royston Railway Station which is just 10 miles away. However, Cambridge Railway Station also provides quick access into both Kings Cross and Liverpool Street stations as well.

The Barn is an architect designed, Grade II listed barn conversion which was completed in 2009, measuring an impressive 2,480 sq ft. The quality and style of the building was recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects when listed in their conservation catalogue (2010). The conversion demonstrates a wonderful understanding of space and light, is beautifully detailed and has been carefully created with skilled craftsmanship to balance its roles as both a historic building and a comfortable, versatile family home.

The property stands secluded off Field Road behind a fine period farmhouse. The approach is discreet and the front of the house gives no clue to what is on offer inside. This is, however, made clearer upon entering the entrance hall, which has a vaulted ceiling, full length windows and dual aspect views across the manicured grounds which extend to approximately 1.7 acres.

The principal open-plan living area is simply stunning and comprises of three main areas. The kitchen area is fitted with a wide range of appliances, units with polished work surfaces and a large, central island which has a raised breakfast bar with seating and extra storage beneath. The dining area is positioned for wonderful views down the garden. A feature turned staircase leads to a landing area which makes for a wonderful viewing gallery over the impressive living space below.

A useful utility room, which has access to the rear garden, connects the principal open-plan area to a double bedroom with an en suite shower room and a cosy winter snug/family room with a comforting wood-burning stove and space for a dining table. A second staircase leads to the master bedroom which enjoys a vaulted ceiling and views to the garden and countryside beyond. A separate dressing room and en suite bathroom with an inset TV complete this first floor space.

A further double bedroom is situated on the ground floor adjacent to the main bathroom, which is ideal for guest, au pair or extended family accommodation.

To the rear of the property is a large, expansive lawn which extends to approximately 1.7 acres. Tall, maturing hedgerow and attractive trees provide a high degree of privacy. There is also an all weather tennis court.
