Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fabulously appointed Listed Manor House with stand-out accommodation and award winning gardens of around 1.6 acres.


Keyston is an attractive small village on Cambridgeshire border with Northamptonshire, 8 miles north of Kimbolton and 12 west of Huntingdon. It is well thought of village with a mix of largely period houses and a gastro-pub, The Pheasant (Cambridgeshire's 'Dining Pub of the Year 2016'), at its heart.

Keyston is also highly accessible. The A14 enables fast east-west links to Birmingham and Cambridge, whilst the rail connections to London from Huntingdon or Peterborough to Kings Cross and Kettering or Wellingborough to St Pancras offer great choice. The current owner commutes to Canary Wharf daily, along with Cambridge regularly, and accessibility was one of the key reasons for their purchase.


A striking and fabulously appointed Queen Anne revival style Listed Manor House, the property occupies a prominent position in the attractive small village of Keyston and overlooks mature and landscaped formal and walled gardens of circa 1.6 acres, with the 13th century St John the Baptist parish church as a lovely backdrop.

The house has undergone a complete programme of renovation and reconfiguration in the past six years and the 6,700 square foot Manor House is presented to exacting standards. The property is underfloor centrally heated throughout, with cat-6 network wiring behind the parquet, French oak and limestone flooring, with ornate plaster ceilings and other period features throughout.

The kitchen is sumptuously appointed with a bespoke suite designed, manufactured and fitted by Wychwood Cabinet Makers of Northampton, incorporating a four-oven Aga with its electric companion and a fixed breakfast table, along with formal dining and family areas. The bathrooms are similarly well-appointed, several with marble tiles and baths and showers that are fed by a pressurised secondary circulation system to ensure immediate high pressure hot water throughout the house.

Whilst the headline summary comprises three formal reception rooms and six bedrooms (five en-suite), including an ancillary flat, the layout offers great flexibility in its use. Indeed, careful thought has gone into the accommodation's design and fitting out to ensure that it can adapt and as one example of this, the second floor cinema room has a store room alongside within which the plumbing exists for a shower room, should you require a seventh en-suite bathroom in due course. In addition, a quadruple garage and ancillary barn which housed a previous owner's commercial offices, is thought to offer further potential for ancillary accommodation, subject to necessary consents.

The Gardens:
The gardens, which largely lie across the lane from the house, are delightful. The Water Gardens are an award winning 1958 Chelsea Flower Show design, with a rock garden, mixed species trees, herbaceous borders and a feature pond with waterfall.

The adjoining walled garden is impressive and incorporates parterre and rose gardens, with gravelled and paved pathways leading to extensive lawns and a pergola. The potting sheds and garage within the walled garden are thought to have originally been the gardener's cottage.

Square Footage: 6,771 sq ft
Acreage: 1.6 Acres
