Full description

A four bedroom character family home with detached period barn conversion, nicely positioned in a pretty, sought-after village about 8 miles south of Cambridge.

The Old Bakery and Bumble Bee Barn, Abbey Street, combine to form a wonderful property that was the former village bakery and has been a much loved family home for the current owner for 32 years.

The main house has three first floor bedrooms and a first floor bathroom, plus a ground floor study that they have previously used as a fourth bedroom. A large, bright dining / family room runs across the front of the house, with small-paned windows out to the street and a brick fireplace. In the middle of the house is an inner hall with a cloakroom and the kitchen off and at the back is the former bakery, which is a fabulous room with an open fireplace and a vaulted ceiling.

A driveway to the side gives parking for 2-3 cars. At present the garden is divided to give a private lawned area for the main house, with a pathway leading behind this to Bumble Bee Barn, an absolutely charming DETACHED ANNEXE, converted and extended from the bakery's original stable, cart shed and granary and full of warmth and character. Inside there is a sitting room, kitchen / dining room, bedroom and wet / shower room and it has its own private garden that backs on to farm land. Bumble Bee is currently set up as a self-contained residential annexe, but would equally suit those who want to work from home or, with the removal of a fence, could be brought back into the garden of the main house and used as lovely guest accommodation or as independent living for family members, young or old.

Ickleton stands close to the border between Cambridgeshire and Essex, about 8 miles south of Cambridge and is popular because of its charming historic architecture and strong community.

In Ickleton there is a village shop / post office and an historic pub. There are primary schools at Great Chesterford (1 mile) and Duxford (2 miles). Great Chesterford also has a mainline station serving Cambridge (16 minutes) and London Liverpool Street (70 minutes).

The market town of Saffron Walden is about 5 miles south and junction 9 of the M11 is only about 1.5 miles away.
