2 Magog Farm Barns is one of a courtyard development of former agricultural buildings backing onto Wandlebury Woods close to the sought after village of Babraham. This is a small, pretty village some 4.1 miles south east of the Cambridge city boundary and is particularly convenient for the Babraham Institute, Granta Park, Addenbrooke's hospital and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. The George Inn is set back behind the village green and the well-regarded Gog Magogs Farm shop, delicatessen and cafe is nearby.

Excellent primary schooling is available in Babraham with further state schooling for all age groups (including the well regarded Sawston Village College) in the large neighbouring village of Sawston. Here there is also a large sports and leisure centre together with a good range of everyday shopping and recreational facilities and a medical centre. Independent schools are within easy reach in the historic high tech city of Cambridge, along with a wider range of shopping, recreational and cultural amenities.

For the commuter, there are mainline rail services from Cambridge (to both London's Kings Cross and Liverpool Street Stations) and Whittlesford or Great Shelford into London's Liverpool Street or King's Cross stations (from 60 minutes and 1 hr 24 minutes respectively). The M11 Junction 9 is 6.9 miles, Whittlesford station is 6 miles, the A11 2.2 miles and Stansted Airport is approximately 25.7 miles distant.


2 Magog Farm Barns is a delightfully appealing property which forms part of the conversion of a range of former farm buildings, barns and stables. The property has a mixture of brick and weatherboard elevations beneath a part, slate part tiled roof and provides much larger than expected, well designed, quality accommodation over two floors. The house has a contemporary feel, many of the sanitary fittings have been upgraded by the vendors and further work has included the creation of a superb master suite. Great attention to detail is evident throughout this delightful home.

Box hedging beside the entrance door leads to a hall opening up to the wide staircase hall and cloakroom to the right. The spacious main reception room is used at the moment as a sitting/dining room and has French doors to the terrace at the dining end and a brick fireplace with brick hearth and woodburning stove. The second reception room has a range of fitted cupboards and offers a wide variety of potential uses - a study, playroom or 4th bedroom with a good en suite shower room. To the left of the hall is an impressive, light and spacious vaulted kitchen/breakfast/family room with exposed ceiling timbers, a cream Aga with attractive glass tiles behind, a good range of painted base units with cupboards and drawers, a central island with further storage below and granite worktops. There is a utility room off and a breakfast area at the far end with French doors to the terrace and gardens. On the first floor, there is a good master suite with deep windows to the side and an external glazed panel provides a modern version of a Juliette balcony enjoying fabulous views of the garden and adjoining woodland. This room also has the benefit of both a dressing room and re-fitted shower/bathroom. 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom compete the accommodation on this floor.

The gardens and grounds have been beautifully re-designed by the vendors to create a superb west facing private terrace, ideal for entertaining with ample space for both sitting and alfresco dining areas. There are low retaining walls with integrated lighting providing a variety of places to sit, a triple "waterfall feature", shallow steps and considerable flower and shrub planting within the curved borders. Beyond is a large lawned area with a circular raised level lawn set within a semi-circular bank. Hedging and mature trees back onto (and have direct access to) Wandlebury Woods.
There is a gated passageway between this and the adjoining property and a double garage on the opposite side of the drive.

In all 1.087 acres.

Square Footage: 2,518 sq ft
