Property Description

Full description

Thought to date back to circa 1600, this substantial Grade II listed former farmhouse occupies a delightful, secluded garden plot of approximately 1.1 acres. Adjoining open fields and located along a quiet country lane in this popular North Bedfordshire hamlet, the property is still within easy reach of road links to Bedford (11 miles), the popular market town of Kimbolton (3 miles) and Cambridge (27 miles). Arranged over three floors, the adaptable accommodation offers in excess of 3,000 square feet of space with exposed beams much in evidence. There are four reception rooms in addition to an imposing reception hall; the main drawing room features an impressive inglenook fireplace and an historic frieze which, reputedly, has royal connections with the Tudor period. There are four first floor bedrooms in addition to a spacious landing and two bathrooms with one en-suite. Another large second floor landing area provides access to a large loft bedroom and generous eaves storage. Outside, two driveways allow access to a detached double garage with utility and storage and a further detached single garage. The grounds are a particular feature of the property. Well screened, there is a formal garden, kitchen garden area, mature orchard and established trees including a centrepiece of an imposing Walnut tree. For the commuter, St Neots (8 miles) and Bedford provide fast rail links into London's Kings Cross and St Pancras respectively.
Having undergone many alterations during the property's extensive history the farmhouse has been under the current ownership for over four decades. Almost all of the windows are secondary double glazed and there is electric (phase III) underfloor heating through the ground floor although its efficiency is considered poor for modern day standards. Electric storage/convector heaters serve the majority of the house. There is a utility room attached to the rear of the double garage with plumbing for appliances and an adjoining workshop/wood store. We understand that all main services with the exception of gas - which is not supplied to the village - are connected. Quietly situated, the property is well screened from its few neighbours with open countryside adjoining on two sides.
