The Property - This delightful character home blends period and modern very successfully indeed. The oldest part is understood to date from 1580 and boasts a very fine inglenook fireplace, which gave rise to the property's Grade II listing, and numerous exposed timbers. The intermediate period provided the dining room and family room and the most recent a very impressive modern kitchen and conservatory. The house benefits from extensive double-glazing and gas fired central heating.

The property enjoys a very pleasant setting in the picturesque small village or hamlet of Newnham with outstanding views over open countryside to the rear.

The Outside - The house stands in a plot of a fifth of an acre, measuring about 102' by 94' (31.09m x 28.68m) overall, and screened from the road by a mature hedge. A five-bar gate opens to the gravelled drive and parking area providing good off-street parking and leading to the garage. There is a paved terrace to the front of the house and the gardens wrap around the left-hand side of the house and to the rear. The attractive gardens are laid to lawn with herbaceous beds and borders, walled border, water feature, ornamental shrubs and box and yew hedges, deck and paved patio and laurel hedge to rear. Summerhouse.

The garden backs on to open farmland.

The Location - Newnham is a delightful small village or hamlet just to the west of the larger village of Ashwell in north Hertfordshire on the borders of Cambridgeshire. Crouches is just 1.7 miles from Junction 10 on the A1(M), 1.8 miles from the centre of Ashwell, 2.8 miles from Baldock mainline railway station, 4.8 miles from Letchworth Garden City station and 4.2 miles from Ashwell & Morden station.
