Tenure: Freehold

Want to live in the country, but with easy access to Cambridge? Enjoy village life in lovely countryside in this beautifully modernised home. This has got the 'Wow factor - and no chain!

If you're the sort of person who longs to live in a peaceful little village with a cosy pub on your doorstep, then this could be perfect for you. Especially if you don't want the hassle of a long commute to work, but you still want the convenience of good schools and shops close by. But you probably don't want to compromise too much on the quality of your home - it has to be bright, spacious, contemporary. Maybe you work at the Science Park in Cambridge? Easy peasy - Its only a 25 minute drive. Or maybe you want to downsize to a high quality, low maintenance place? You get all that here.

If that's your wish list, come and see this one!

Albys is a beautifully extended and modernised bungalow in the heart of the small, pretty village of Colne. Now maybe you've never heard of Colne? Well its very conveniently located, 10 minutes north east of the beautiful market town of St Ives, 9 miles east of Huntingdon, with easy access to Cambridge.

The village is in the middle of countryside and orchards, with many of its houses grouped around a triangular village green. It only has the Green Man pub (we'll take you there when you come to see it), a church and village hall. The nearby village of Bluntisham is half a mile away and has shops and the local primary school, St Helens, which was rated "Good" by Ofsted in 2015. St Ivo Secondary School and Swavesey Village College are both less than 5 miles away. St Ives really is a lovely town with plenty of shops, restaurants and amenities, and its about 10 minutes in to the town centre from the village.

Getting in to the Science Parks, central Cambridge or Addenbrooke's is a doddle - no need to use the A14 if you don't want. You can drive cross country to join the A10 at Stretham, or you can go down the B1050 to join the A14 at Bar Hill and missing most of the morning jam. Even simpler, you can get to the Park and Ride in St Ives in 10 minutes, for the 20 minute bus ride direct to the Science Park. You can even get the bus which stops a few yards down the road and travel directly in to Cambridge. Huntingdon Railway station is reachable in 20 minutes or so if you need to get the fast train to Kings Cross. So, even though you're in this delightful, peaceful village, its easy to get to the places you need to be.

Albys has been completely renovated and extended by the owners and turned it into a well equipped spacious family home. It's got a real wow factor. You've got a fabulous brand new open plan kitchen and living area which has bifold doors opening on to the patio and secure lawned back garden. A separate living room also opens on to the back garden. Perfect for parties and alfresco living!

You've got three good sized bedrooms, one ensuite bathroom and the superb family bathroom.

There's a large gravelled driveway at the front with plenty of room to park at least three cars. A gate to the side leads you to the sunny back garden which has a wide patio and lawn.
