A spacious four-bedroom home in the pretty village of Sutton, it has a large open-plan kitchen dining area which opens out onto the landscaped garden, enjoying open-meadow views. The property benefits from three further reception rooms and a double garage with further off-road parking. Sutton boasts a good local primary school, pub and village hall, whilst nearby Biggleswade and Sandy offer further amenities. Good commuter links by road or rail.
This immaculate, charming, family home is nestled in the heart of the picturesque, rural, village of Sutton. Backing onto open meadow-land, the house built in 1980, has been the home of its present owner for the past fifteen years, who has beautifully maintained and enhanced both the house and its garden.
Historically, the village and surrounding land were owned by John OGaunt, after whom the local championship golf course is named. The local primary school has received a high award from Ofsted, whilst several social activities take place in the village via its local pub, aptly named The John OGaunt, or the local village hall. Potton, just two miles away, has a delightful and historic market square with an excellent range of shops and library, with nearby Biggleswade and Sandy both having larger supermarkets. In addition, both of these locations have main line stations offering efficient journeys into Kings Cross, whilst links to major roads and motorways are very convenient.
After living for many years in a busy urban area, the family were looking for a home in a rural setting and were utterly charmed by this house, together with its location in such a pretty village. Accommodation is generous and spacious with a flexible layout which copes admirably with every requirement. The owners chose to utilise what had been a small dining room as a study, with the large kitchen which leads into a dining space being perfectly adequate. The double aspect reception room features a beautiful brick fireplace and this space, along with its views out into the garden and beyond, is a lovely space in which guests can relax.
The kitchen which leads into the dining space is perfect for day to day dining or when friends and family are visiting. It is a naturally sociable room and is bright and sunny. Its large doors, opening onto the patio enable guests to spill out on summer days.
The wider area has so much to offer. It is enjoyable driving along the nearby country lanes in all seasons, and there are also good footpaths for walks in the adjoining fields and woodland. The headquarters of the RSPB, with its nature reserve, is minutes away and another place to enjoy. Another advantage is being so conveniently close to Cambridge for exceptional architecture, galleries, restaurants and theatres.
The owner is moving to live closer to her family, but this has been a much loved home and one from which she will take only positive memories of life here.
The garden has been the subject of much attention by the owner. Once invasive conifers had been removed the garden has been landscaped to provide a garden of beauty and interest. The large water feature has been transformed to create one for interesting plants and wildlife. Sitting out on the patio, or dining al fresco out here, is an absolute joy.
