Eltisley is a friendly village centralising around the village green with its cricket green and thatched pavilion with bar – The Cade – hosting regular events and clubs. There is also the popular pub/restaurant, Church, Bluebell Day Nursery and Ofsted rated ‘Good’ Newton Primary School.
This utterly charming Grade II listed timber-framed period house enjoys a sought-after location overlooking the pretty village green in the delightful Cambridgeshire village of Eltisley. The property dates back to the 16th century, but over time it has been sensitively extended and modernised and is now a really spacious and beautifully presented four-bedroom family home.
“As well as the sheer character of the house and its wonderful sense of history, I’d say that the location was probably what really sold it to us,” says the owner. “It overlooks the village green and cricket pitch and we’re just a short walk from the village pub, which serves some wonderful food. There is also a nursery and primary school, and lots of clubs and societies so there’s something for everyone. It’s also a very convenient place to live as from nearby St Neots it’s only about 45 minutes by train into London or we can hop in the car and be in the centre of Cambridge in around fifteen minutes.”
“The house was beautifully renovated by a previous owner so it was in great condition when we bought it and therefore, apart from updating the décor, we’ve needed to do very little. It has a really warm and welcoming feel throughout and so much character. Lots of the rooms are heavily beamed, there are exposed timbers throughout and a total of three inglenooks, two of which are fitted with wood burners. It’s a beautiful example of a period home, but it also works really well for modern living and it’s a lovely house to entertain in.”
“The gardens are something else that drew us to the property,” continues the owner. “They wrap right the way around the house and are mainly laid to lawn so very family-friendly. We’ve added new patios so there are a couple of lovely places to sit out and relax in, and the new outdoor lighting make the whole space look really stunning at night. I love the fact that it’s so peaceful out there, and while the back is totally private, at the front we enjoy a really stunning view out across the village green.”
“The main living room is just lovely. It features the exposed beams and timbers, a huge inglenook and it’s triple aspect so it’s light and bright, and the views across the garden are superb.”
“Eltisley is a gorgeous village with a lovely pub and restaurant and a little school, and we have mile upon mile of beautiful open countryside right on the doorstep. For all day-to-day necessities we can either head into St Neots or indeed Cambridge city centre, and the local transport links are really good so it’s also a really great place for a commuter.”
“Around the back of the house we have a driveway that can take a couple of cars and also a garage so parking has never been an issue.”
“We are only moving as for family reasons we need a separate annexe, but we will miss this place when we go,” says the owner. “It’s a lovely home in a stunning location and we’ve relished being part of such a friendly village community.”
Eltisley is a charming village with a picturesque village green home to the cricket pitch and its thatched pavilion with bar and to the west of the green stands the 13th century parish church. There is also a primary school and the popular pub/restaurant "The Eltisley". Cambourne, approximately 3 miles to the east, offers a range of shopping facilities including a supermarket, banking facilities, GP/dental/pharmacy facilities and a selection of cafes and restaurants.
Eltisley is situated approximately 5 miles east of St Neots and 12 miles west of Cambridge and is just a short drive to the A428 which provides easy access to the A1 and A14 with links to the wider national motorway network. The proposed A428 road improvements will divert much of the existing traffic away from the village and will be a real bonus for the area as well as improving local journey times. The short drive to St Neots railway station provides fast links into London King’s Cross in approximately 45 minutes and rail links to the North via Peterborough.
