Farmhouse, Offord Road, Graveley PE19 6PP


Property Description

Key features


Full description

Tenure: Freehold

You are certainly not short of land and space as the total grounds provide you with approximately 1.5 acres. The choice is yours of how you split the land! Full plans have been drawn up for a 4/5 bedroom dwelling which I can show you when you come to view.
Both the plot and the cottage are set in the beautiful countryside just on the edge of Graveley village. You have horses for your neighbours across the fields and the lovely peaceful sound of birds singing and simply enjoying the wildlife which you're surrounded by.

Graveley is a small village set in the country so if you're after plenty of walks and wish to fulfil the outdoor lifestyle in the then this is going to be perfect for you! You are only 6 miles from St Neots and 7 miles from Huntingdon towns where you have a good choice of shops, restaurants, bars, take aways and much more.

You can get into Cambridge city centre in just 35 minutes and drive along the A428 so you avoid the nightmare A14! The lovely riverside town of St Ives is a mere 8 miles away where you can park your car for free and jump on the guided bus way to be in central Cambridge in 30 minutes.

The main house - Duck End Farmhouse is full of charm and soon as you walk in you are immediately greeted with a warm and homely feel and it's clear to see that the current owners have taken the upmost care of what has been their home for the past 14 years.
Beams, character, history, quirkiness are just a few words of how I would describe this wonderful home. Not one wall is the same as the other but that's what you want with this extraordinary home isn't it?!

Each room has it's own story to tell and many improvements have been made since the vendors took it on... So much time, effort and money has been invested not to mention the blood, sweat and tears!! The restoration has been done to the highest standard so you won't be disappointed!

The cottage has a neutral feel to it and is not short of light and space. Dating back from the seventeenth century and grade II listed it simply has a wealth of history and character with exposed timbers and wood burners..perfect for those cold dark winter evenings! The kitchen has a fabulous Aga which is a real feature of the room along with granite and pine work surfaces. The breakfast room is directly next door with good space for a table and cute doors leading out onto the sunny garden / patio area. There is a pantry just off the breakfast room

The living room is deceptively spacious and light with solid oak flooring and a fantastic fire place with a wood burner. Leading off here is the formal dining room with yet another delightful wood burner and a door leading onto the garden.

You have the added benefit of another reception room which is currently being used as a playroom but it could be an office or whatever you wanted it to be! This then takes me to the down stairs bathroom....and all I can say is....WOW!

Upstairs in the main part of the house you have three double bedrooms and a bathroom consisting of a shower cubicle, wash basin and WC. All the bedrooms have privacy and seclusion which is just another reason to love this house!
The master bedroom is located on the other side of the house with it's own staircase and it's own en suite... and just check out the view in our photo's!! I don't think you could beat that view when waking up!

The property is made of long straw thatch and was re thatched in 2014 so is good for many more years!

We are open 24/7 and do accompanied viewings evenings, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays as well as during the week if you wish! That's just one of the many reasons we've got 5 stars on the independent review website Trustpilot. Ewemove Sales and Lettings - the UK's Most Trusted Estate Agent.
