Tenure: Freehold

Nestled in beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside and situated in a stunning plot of 4.31 acres (1.74 hectares) is this stunning family home with large annexe and numerous outbuildings.

If you are looking for more space and a change of lifestyle then read on...

This unique property would work as a family home and well as being ideal for those buyers who need to run their business from home. It could also be a B&B or may offer development opportunity in the future (these would be subject to the necessary permissions).

The main house is beautifully presented and offers a stunning re-fitted kitchen / dinning room with a superb range of bespoke units with a quartz work surface.

The sitting room is ideal for entertaining with ample space for guests and even a bar in the corner, which should help get the party started!

The bedrooms are all a generous size with all five able to accommodate double beds.

The annexe is very interesting, it offers a huge space and a multitude of uses including, additional income by letting out the rooms, B&B potential or an opportunity for two families to live together but with their own homes. It would work wonderfully for those running a business from home, as it was used as this previously.

The carport is large enough for three cars and there is ample parking on the large gravel driveway.

The real jewel in the crown is the outside of the property. The plot is simply breath taking. There are formal gardens surrounding the house, with a lovely patio to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The next section of the garden is very much the children's domain with space to run around and play. The summer house is large enough to be useful and has its own decking area and fabulous outlook.

The remainder of the garden is divided up between lawned areas and orchards. There are a wealth of apple trees as well as pear and greengage. Of course with the space available there is ample room to grow plenty more fruit and veg.

There are stables for those looking at keeping animal. The current owners keep sheep, ducks, chickens and even a peacock, but there is enough land to keep more and larger animals if required.

This really is a special home that must be seen to appreciate everything it has to offer.

The EPC rating for the annexe is 68/83 and 65/80.

About The Area
The property is tucked away behind a gated entrance on the outskirts of the popular village of Meldreth. Situated some 11 miles south west of Cambridge city centre, the village benefits from good everyday shopping facilities with a convenience store and popular farm shop. Meldreth is a linear village with the railway station at one end and the church at the other, there is a Primary school and public house and as a matter of interest, the Greenwich Meridian runs through the village.

A more comprehensive range of shopping facilities can be found in nearby Royston (with rail services into London's Kings Cross from 38 minutes), and Cambridge with a wider range of shopping, recreational and cultural facilities. Meldreth railway station is close by which provides services into both London's Kings Cross and Cambridge stations.

There are good recreational amenities in the area including golf clubs at Royston and Meldreth and an indoor leisure pool at Melbourn. State schooling for all age groups is available in the area as there is a Primary School in the village, and we understand that the village is in the catchment area for Melbourn Village College (2.3 miles). There are also a number of excellent independent schools for all age groups in Cambridge including St Faith's, St John's and King's College Prep Schools, the Perse Co-Ed, The Leys, Stephen Perse and St Mary's secondary schools.
