Full description

Set in a sought-after and exclusive riverside development, this town house has river frontage, 10m mooring and stunning views. The accommodation includes three reception rooms, one with a balcony, a spacious kitchen breakfast room opening onto the landscaped riverside rear garden, four bedrooms, one with en suite, and a family bathroom. Buckden Marina is within walking distance and offers a health club, pool, gym and bar. The village of Offord is also within walking distance and has a well-regarded pub restaurant.

The present owners were searching for a quality home with character and charm, that family and friends would look forward to visiting. They were thrilled to discover The Old Flour Mills, as it not only ticked all their requirements, but also had the wow factor. After eighteen happy years in the property, they are sorry that the time has now come to downsize.

The Old Flour Mills enjoys the perfect location. It sits in a tranquil riverside and idyllic setting on the outskirts of the historic and much sought-after Buckden village, with its shops for everyday provisions, primary school and two hotels. It is also within a few minutes’ walk to the Buckden Marina Leisure Centre with its excellent gym, restaurant and bar.

The wider location is readily accessible, and Cambridge, Peterborough, St Neots and Milton Keynes are all an easy drive away. There is a frequent and fast rail service into London Kings Cross from St Neots station, which is perfect for the commuter or for a day out in the capital.

The owners explain that the four-storey town house is a light-filled, streamlined and ultra-comfortable living space which has stunning views across the river and meadow beyond. The well-equipped kitchen is the perfect sociable space for chatty meals and daily living, whilst watching the plethora of birds and wild life. The kitchen balcony is a fantastic outside dining room; where it is perfect to end the day by settling down to savour a glass of wine under a radiant sunset.

The chic sitting room provides the same ability to enjoy an inside or outside relaxing experience and the owners have discovered it is a room where you are tempted to spend time watching red kites wheel across the sky, or herons searching for fish.

The master bedroom with en suite is on the second floor, and it is always an excitement to open the curtains and see the changing scenery. Whether the countryside is wreathed in mist, or glowing in the morning sun, it is a great way to start each day.

Visitors love to stay at the house, and with ample room and plentiful storage it is a home that easily accommodates people. Family and friends love to sit on the fishing platform, have a summer picnic on the pretty flower meadow, walk along the Ouse Valley Way or enjoy a trip down the river from the boat mooring. It is a charmed way of life.

The small group of seventeen houses is a supportive community and there are occasional impromptu gatherings. There is a communal decking where it is fun to sit and watch boats passing through the lock. There is also ample car parking for visitors and a convenient cycle store.

The owners are going to miss The Old Flour Mills, with its stunning views, immediate connection to the landscape, its fabulous location, and great comfort. It has been a very special home for them.
