Washbank Road, Eynesbury, PE19

Set on the river Great Ouse, in a private plot of approximately 1.1 acres with mooring and an annexe, Willow Bank’s transformation into one of the town’s premier homes is nearing completion.

The property has been extended and renovated throughout whilst retaining its period charm. The reception hall leads into a stunning open plan kitchen/breakfast room, with luxurious stone worksurfaces and high-end integrated appliances, which then opens into the triple aspect family room with two sets of bi-fold doors which overlook the south facing lawns and west facing riverbank. The formal lounge has a feature fireplace and a large bay window with beautiful views of the river and parkland beyond. The generous size study, with large bay window overlooking the garden, could be used as an additional reception room. Also on the ground floor is a utility/laundry room, a boot room and a cloakroom providing ample storage and practicality. The reception hall and landing bay windows are ideal for reading or to relax and enjoy the views and magnificent sunsets. On the first floor the principal bedroom suite is truly special with an entrance lobby, dressing room, opulent bathroom and spacious dual aspect bedroom with bi-fold doors to the balcony. The further three double bedrooms all benefit from en-suite shower rooms giving privacy to all.

The mature plot is exceptionally private with an established tree line and double, brick pillared gates which open onto a sweeping gravel drive with granite set edging. The gardens wrap around the house and include a substantial south facing lawn, west facing terrace and mooring. The detached one-bedroom annexe is ideal for guests or staff. An extensive garage complex offers the opportunity for a wealth of uses such as a detached office, entertainment/games room or leisure space/gym.

London Road, St Ives, PE27

Willowdene, a mid-Victorian period property dating from the 1850s, boasts a lovely feel reflecting stylish eras with such touches as its Regency style front porch, traditional fireplaces, panelling and Georgian style sash windows. Spacious, elegant rooms offer a mix of high ceilings, picture rails, deep skirtings, ceiling/wall mouldings and maple wood flooring to the main reception rooms. As a unique home of approx. 4930 sq ft, it also offers the versatility of a self-contained wing with the whole property set in a generous garden mixing the formality of a walled terrace and an abundance of natural areas.

The entrance lobby opens into a large reception room with a tall bay window, a feature log burner and staircase, with storage cupboard below, to the first floor. An inner hall, with its unusual curved wall, leads through to the formal dining room, large living room and kitchen/breakfast room. The wood-panelled dining room, with its tall bay window, has an Arts and Crafts style feel and a fabulous open fireplace with original tile surround, ornate high-level mantel flanked by leaded lights in alcoves. The room’s walk-out bay window has a door to the garden. The distinctive living room, south facing, with its Victorian-style fireplace, ornate surround and marble hearth, has decorative features including wall beading, large ceiling rose and picture rails. Its walk-out bay window includes a door to the terrace, with views over the gardens and a further door to a spacious, traditional conservatory. The two rooms are linked by original sliding panelled ‘pocket’ doors to allow their use as one huge room for special occasions. The generous kitchen/breakfast room is fitted in a traditional style with integrated oven and hob and has ample room for a breakfast table. The kitchen leads through to a snug room; a lovely area perfect for watching the bird feeders or a separate area to eat, relax or work. Both kitchen and snug overlook the south facing kitchen garden, a sun trap in the mornings and afternoons. The kitchen also leads to a large walk-in pantry, utility room, large storage room, cloakroom and through to the rear lobby with stable door accessing the garden. Beyond is a generous sized study with dual aspect views over the garden.

Upstairs, the large landing with loft access provides access to four of the bedrooms, the family bathroom, separate WC and large walk-in airing cupboard. The imposing principal bedroom is dual aspect, featuring an Art Deco style corner fireplace and door out to an unusual feature: a roofed, wooden beamed balcony overlooking the gardens. Bedroom two is a spacious double room with a door to gain access to the self-contained annexe, if required. Bedroom three is a double room and bedroom four is a good-sized single room or small double. The family bathroom features a four-piece suite and next door is a separate WC.

The self-contained annexe, with separate external side entrance, is ideal for guests, a retreat for young or more elderly relatives or perhaps a live-in au pair. The accommodation includes, a substantial dual aspect lounge, Shaker style kitchen/diner with fitted appliances, bathroom with three-piece suite and a large double bedroom.

A wide, gravelled drive bounded by a close board fence and wrought iron gates leads to the property frontage with ample parking. The drive continues along the side of the property past the entrance to the annexe, a store cupboard, covered alcoves useful for logs storage and to more parking space and a triple garage at the rear. The wrap around garden is south facing to the rear, laid mainly to lawn there and to the right side of the house, and benefits from sun through the day. The large flat lawned area is ideal for family games, parties, etc. Two sets of steps from the lawn lead up to the house fronted by an extensive south facing walled terrace, featuring sunken rose beds, which is ideal for al fresco dining. The garden has a wide range of trees, bushes, shrubs and plants.

Seller Insight

Semi-rurally situated to the south of St Ives, Cambridgeshire, Willowdene is a striking period home standing in large established grounds. A mid-Victorian property c1850s, it has touches reflecting periods pre-1850s, seen in its Regency style front porch, Georgian style sashes and elegant rooms. Versatile and distinctive, it has been the much-loved home of the current owners for 28-years.

“Willowdene or ‘The Dene’, as our family have come to call it over the years, will be a big wrench to leave with so many happy memories over nearly 30 years. Sadly, with the sheer size of the place (we couldn’t believe it was around 5,000sq ft when it was measured!) it’s time to move to somewhere smaller.

“We knew the property was a real one-off when we bought it with such lovely living space, south facing gardens, privacy and has been perfect as a family home. We were looking for somewhere with character, a bit quirky, but practical and very little was on offer. Willowdene just jumped out at us, the great spaces, good light and airiness, its versatility inside while outside the contrast between the formal terrace, a lawn big enough for a tennis court and lots of ‘hide & seek’ fun to be had.

“We were hugely attracted to the mix of big and smaller rooms and how they connected and found it a very versatile home, as perfect for day-to-day use as for hosting guests. With this and the rambling elements of the garden which is so much a natural environment, it’s been tremendous for a growing family. The garden has many mature trees, including a giant sequoia guarding the entrance, a rare bitter orange tree along with bushes and rose beds, etc.

“Above all, it’s been such a fun home to live in with memories of playing Kubb (basically throwing pieces of wood!), Quidditch when Harry Potter was the big thing and other games in the garden.
Inside, opening up the main reception rooms into a huge space for parties with the sliding doors was always a treat. For many years, one room had a full-sized table tennis table there permanently for ping pong & the fir cones game (don’t ask!).

“The house really is ideal for entertaining, especially for parties and visitors and its traditional feel with tall bay windows, original plaster and wooden mouldings, curved walls etc make it such a pleasure to live in. Having a walk-in pantry and a walk-in airing cupboard, too, are not always thought of in homes these days; we’ll miss this sort of thing. Christmas meals and supper parties are always atmospheric, in the room with an open fire, (quite recently replaced with a wood burner) before flopping down in one of the other rooms.

“The house has some quite unusual features aside from its varied fireplace styles, panelled dining room, etc including our ‘resident’ (!) passion flower bush inside the conservatory and a covered balcony off the main bedroom for breakfasts in the morning or glasses of wine at sunset. On a more practical side in these times, there is a completely refurbished self-contained first floor flat, ideal for a range of uses - maybe for family or friends to stay, as a working from home area, a live in au pair or an art or crafts studio with the light being so excellent.

“The location is ideal for access to the countryside, riverside walks, nature reserves, etc and convenient for the amenities of village & town life nearby. We feel tucked away (first time visitors often don’t find us easily) and I suppose a good description is ‘semi rural’ with all the local amenities in the Hemingfords villages and St Ives just a few minutes stroll and close by, Cambridge a 15 minutes’ drive and London about an hour on the train from nearby Huntingdon.

“Anyway, it’s not a property for anyone looking for the conventional; but The Dene has been an unforgettable family home for us, one we were lucky to find all those years ago and one we’ll be very sad to say goodbye to.”

Seller Insight

"We fell in love with this house as soon as we saw it," say the current owners of The Willows. "The unique design of the building is simply stunning, with its bespoke brickwork and low roofline creating an unusual and very appealing aesthetic. The idyllic location of the property drew us to it, too, set in a large riverside plot overlooking the surrounding fields."

"The house was newly built when we bought it, and we liked the idea of being the first people to live in it," the owners continue. "This also gave us the opportunity to put our own stamp on the property, which we have achieved by landscaping the gardens to make the most of the outdoor space, including the planting of now well established greenery. The garden is home to abundant wildlife, too, with a family of deer regularly wandering into the garden from the fields at night, and squirrels running around by day. The plot is unusually large for a new build, so there is plenty of space for our grandchildren to run around. It is a real sun trap, too, with the light moving round from the front of the house in the morning, to the sun room on the side of the house in the afternoon and the back garden in the late afternoon and evening. There are various seating areas in which to relax or spend time outdoors with family and friends, including a patio area for al fresco dining and a decking area down by the river."

Indeed, this is the perfect property for everyday life and entertaining alike. "We have bounteous space both indoors and out," say the owners. "The large lounge area is a very sociable space for when the family come round to stay, and we have hosted countless gatherings in the garden
with the patio doors wide open, music playing and everyone enjoying the views."

The local area has much to recommend it, too. "Despite the rural setting of the property, we have everything we need right on our doorstep," say the owners. "Transport links are fantastic, whether by road or rail. We are only 5 minutes from the train station, so can be in central London in just 40 minutes."

Seller Insight

Tucked quietly away within the village of Earith, this magnificent, spacious, family home enjoys an incredible frontage onto the Great Ouse. Set in its quiet, private, enclave, reflecting a Dutch architectural style, it is one of a small development of award winning properties constructed to a demanding specification. No 4 has been the home for its present owners for the past sixteen years.

The setting of this property is truly magical. Its main living space faces south and overlooks the river providing ever changing vistas and interests. It is not hard to comprehend the owners’ attraction to this wonderful house and, since coming to live here, they have enhanced their home further resulting in a home full of luxury and practicality, combined with highly versatile and well-proportioned rooms throughout. The house offers extensive options for a comfortable living style and is wonderful for welcoming friends and family when they come to stay. The conservatory was part of the original build and adds to the flexibility of the house offering a wonderful connectivity and flexibility throughout.

Another significant enhancement undertaken by the owners was to replace the existing outside patio garden wall with a purpose built glazed barrier and, also, the principal bedroom balcony barrier was likewise replaced with similar glazing. These add further to the breathtaking viewpoints, particularly in the bedroom enjoying morning cups of tea and savouring the early morning activities on the river. Inside/outside living is a huge factor in the joy of this property, whatever the weather, or time of year, the utterly enchanting views never cease to bring joy, alongside the endless variety of wildlife, one being the annual delight of a baby seal pup.

Seller Insight

The present owners were living in rented property at a time when the market was fluctuating and property prices were predicted to drop. They were waiting for this to happen, but they saw The Coppice, and all good intentions vanished. They fell in love with the superb, thatched family home and its excellent location in sought after Abbots Ripton. They couldn’t bear to take the chance of losing the house and have spent a very happy fourteen years in the property.

The Coppice has a charming kerbside appeal and inside, a warm and welcoming ambience. It is a spacious and well insulated home. The owners chose to lay luxury Amtico flooring, install a gas wood burner, and added a large, light filled garden room, the orangery.

The orangery is the impressive and hospitable hub of the home. With underfloor heating it is an all year welcoming sanctuary, where the generous windows drench the room in natural light, creating a sense of actually being in the garden. It is a real ‘inside, outside room,’ and one which is used daily and appreciated by the family.

There is also the choice of the lounge where the gas burner fire makes an inviting winter retreat, or the TV room off the kitchen; whilst the family room has been perfect for the children to have as their own space. The house is a collection of inviting and comfortable spaces and is at its best when full of people.

The private, landscaped and easily maintained garden circles the house and you can follow the sun through the day. A previous owner planted a coppice at the end of the garden which attracts bird and wild life but is also a delightful zone for simply savouring the peaceful surroundings.

The Coppice is ideally placed in community minded and pretty Abbots Ripton an estate village with a number of attractive thatched homes. The various clubs are centred around the church and village hall, and It is only three miles into historic Huntingdon where you have comprehensive shops, cinemas and a station with an excellent service into London Kings Cross. The owners say that a big plus is, if you are away from home for stretches of time you know that Home Farm Close with its three houses is very secure.

The owners are relocating but will sorely miss their home and village life. They take away many very happy memories.

“We were moving up from London due to a company relocation and needed a family home" say the current owners of 61 London Road. “This property was large enough for our three young boys and the ground floor layout had an easy flow so that they could chase each other around from room to room. It has proven to be the perfect house for entertaining too, providing many wonderful occasions for family to join under one roof and celebrate birthdays, Christmas and weddings. The house is easily big enough to host large numbers spread through the ground floor, with room to accommodate them all and space for the youngsters to get away from the adults when they need their own space."

When the current owners moved in, the property was in need of significant work, but they have since transformed it into their ideal family home. "Over the 26 years we have lived here, we have replastered, plumbed and wired; replaced windows, kitchen and bathroom; and tamed the wilderness garden, which was overgrown with brambles to within 6 feet of the rear wall,” they say. “We demolished the garage and replaced it with a two storey extension: the two bathrooms were combined into one family bathroom, while the jacuzzi bathroom downstairs, the en-suite and dressing room to the master bedroom, and the rear bedroom with en-suite all arose from the extension. Outside, we cleared the garden and made a large patio area, also installing a greenhouse, summerhouse and shed."

Now, the gardens serve as a continuation of the indoor living and entertaining space. "Accessed via patio doors from the light and airy L shaped kitchen, the sunny garden is perfect for al fresco dining," say the owners. "The acer part way down the garden provides much appreciated shade in summer and beautiful colour in the autumn. There is a large pond on the patio; an extensive grassed area; a vegetable partier providing an abundance of fresh produce; and a woodland area for children and grandchildren to explore. Very well served with mature shrubs, the garden is full of birds and wildlife which is a real joy to quietly observe. We love to share our garden too, and having previously been members of the local church, we have hosted many barbecues and Bonfire Night firework displays here."

The location of the property has much to recommend it, too. "One thing we quickly noticed was the calmer pace of life compared to South London," the owners say. "Biggleswade is a lovely town with a strong sense of community, from vibrant Saturday markets and Christmas lights in the square to walking and cycling groups and volunteers who clear litter. London Road is well placed for everything, with the town centre just 7 minutes' walk away for a high street full of local shops, hairdressers, coffee shops, and restaurants, and the railway station just 15 minutes' walk away for direct trains to Kings Cross. The bus station on the market square offers easy access to other local towns such as Cambridge, Stevenage and Bedford, too. Our children thrived at the local lower, middle and upper schools, all within a few minutes' walk from our door. At weekends, walks along the River Ivel are a must, with Jordans Mill being the perfect place to take a break before returning home. The Green Wheel has recently been opened to allow walking or cycling safely around the outskirts of the town. This has proven very popular with dog owners and those who simply want to relax and enjoy the landscape.

Seller Insight

This unique Victorian timber bungalow stands on its own large acreage of land surrounded by ancient woodland. Peaceful and idyllic, it is very close to The River Great Ouse, although very secluded at the same time it is very close to Huntingdon Mainline Rail Station, ten minutes by car. It is a superb, handy location for all main amenities.
During the 1960s the owner spent her honeymoon at the nearby Brampton Mill, a Guest House at the time. She was so impressed with the amazing location when the opportunity arose in 1986 to purchase the property it was done. The large barn complex was used for cattle and horses in the past and more recently has been used for storage. The space and freedom of this plot was great for the owner’s family growing up with a tree house to play in, a stream to go boating in and it was also a lovely setting for parties. Holmeclose is also a great place to enjoy the changing seasons and is a haven for a variety of wildlife.
It is now time for the next chapter in the owner’s life and is an opportunity for another family to build a home in a unique location and have a wonderful lifestyle.

London Road, Biggleswade, SG18

Dating back to c1800 Rose Bank is a hugely characterful period home with a combination of Georgian and Victorian architecture set in a superb location close to the heart of the busy market town of Biggleswade and a short walk to the train station.

The property has been fully refurbished and modernised whilst retaining many of the character features of the home. On entering the property through the period doorway with arched transom window into the entrance hall you are immediately drawn into a bygone era with high ceilings, traditional woodwork, original wood floor and staircases leading to both the cellar and first floor; the hallway also leads straight through to the rear entrance. The living and dining rooms have attractive working open fires with feature surrounds and walk in bay windows whilst the dining room also has its original wood floor and period fitted cabinets. The music/family room has lovely views over the rear garden and also boasts built in period cabinets and original wood floor. The kitchen with original tiled floor has been sympathetically designed and has a gas range oven. The kitchen leads through to a useful utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms with the principal bedroom and second bedroom being large double rooms both with walk in bay windows and open fire places with feature surrounds. The remaining two bedrooms are both of a good size with bedroom three overlooking the rear garden and bedroom four has a window to the side.

To the front and side of the property is a gravel driveway providing parking for two to three vehicles. The front garden is surrounded by hedging providing plenty of privacy and an established low maintenance garden. To the rear of the property is a courtyard, low maintenance garden with a wishing well, several seating areas, a summer house and woodstore. The original washhouse has been transformed into a lovely home office complete with internet connection and air conditioning for those who wish to work from home.

Seller Insight

Dating back to c1800, Rose Bank is a beautiful period home that enjoys a superb location close to the heart of the busy market town of Biggleswade. The property was purchased by the current owners back in 1992 and has been a much-loved family home ever since. “I’d say that it was the character of the house that initially attracted us to the property,” says the owner. “My wife and I love antiques and old things, and this house with its combination of Georgian and Victorian architecture is hugely characterful, quite quirky in a way, and therefore totally unique. We also loved the location. We have a fantastic array of shops and restaurants just a stone’s throw away, we can walk to the station, so it’s an ideal spot for a commuter, and there are lots of wide-open green spaces to enjoy. All in all, it’s a place that offers the best of everything.”

“Despite being a very solid house with great curb appeal, when we first moved here it’s fair to say that it was in need of quite a bit of TLC. It had been renovated I presume at some point in the 1960s and so was crying out for an update. We had it rewired, a new heating system was installed and we decorated from top to bottom. It’s been beautifully modernised, but in a very sympathetic way so it still retains its lovely period features. I’d say we’ve struck an ideal balance between old and new. The layout is very simple, very traditional – we’ve always resisted the temptation to knock through – but the rooms are all spacious, and because we have so many they are very flexible in terms of how they can be used; they can essentially be adapted and changed depending on the family’s needs.”

“We’re also lucky enough to have pretty gardens both front and back,” continues the owner. “The front has been designed to attract the birds – I think my wife single-handedly manages to keep the whole of the Biggleswade bird population fed – and at the back, whereas originally it was designed to be a space that our son could enjoy, it has now evolved into low-maintenance garden for sitting and relaxing in, and a natural habitat for wildlife. It really is a lovely place to be, and when you sit out there it’s so very peaceful that it’s often hard to believe we’re so close to the centre of town.”

“I’d probably say that the main sitting room is my favourite part of the house. It has a big marble fireplace as the focal point, and at the weekend, when it’s cold and miserable outside, I love nothing more than to tuck myself away in there, sit in front of a roaring fire and watch the rugby on the TV.”

“The location really couldn’t be more perfect; I think that’s one of the reasons we’ve stayed for so long. We have an excellent selection of shops and amenities right on the doorstep, there are lots of lovely walks and there are some very good local schools, all of which are just a walk away, so it’s a fantastic place to raise a family.”

“Out in the courtyard there’s an old washhouse that we’ve converted into a fantastic home office. I’ve run a very successful business from it for the past thirty years, and what I’ve loved most is the fact that there’s a nice degree of separation between it and the house, and the daily commute is super quick!”

“Our son has flown the nest and so we’re embarking on a new chapter of our lives in Norfolk,” says the owner. “We’ll be sad to leave Rose Bank, it’s been a wonderful home for the past thirty years, but it’s crying out for a new family to fill it and enjoy living here, and I’ve no doubt that they will.”

There is also a detached coach house with two reception areas, a double garage, extensive outside space and a large driveway allowing parking for multiple vehicles.

Both the sitting room and dining room have large windows allowing an abundance of natural light for these generously sized rooms. The kitchen breakfast room has a delightful Shaker style kitchen with newly fitted range oven, butler sink and restored oak work surfaces. The kitchen breakfast room leads into a very practical utility room which has space for a washing machine and tumble drier, the gas boiler which was installed in 2019, plus two walk in pantries both with original features including a ‘cold’ slab.

To the front of the property is a large drive with parking for multiple cars and the garden is laid mainly to lawn. To the side of house there is a WW2 bomb shelter which could easily be transformed into a games room or large storage room. Gates lead through to the rear garden which is laid mainly to lawn with a variety of trees and shrubs and a large patio area which is ideal for entertaining. There is also a detached coach house which the current owners use as an office and playroom. The double garage has power and light connected.

Seller Insight

“We were immediately impressed with how much space the property affords,” say the current owners of 42 Station Road, “with high ceilings, substantial living spaces, and the wider than standard doors typical of Victorian architecture. The accommodation throughout the house is both generous but also extremely flexible in its use, so we knew it would suit our family’s needs perfectly, both day-to-day and when entertaining friends. The gardens surrounding the house are extremely generous, too, and the rear garden feels particularly private and quiet.”

Since moving in, the owners have carried out extensive sympathetic renovations to the property, in keeping with the original character of the house. “The inside of the property has been completely renovated to a very high standard,” they say, “retaining many of the traditional Victorian features alongside more modern materials to create the perfect blend of old and new. The hidden secret gem of the house is the 18 foot family room overlooking the rear garden, with high ceilings and an astonishing amount of space. This is a house that keeps on giving, with what feels like endless space and rooms.”

The gardens in which the house is set serve to enhance the expansive character of the property. “The rear of the garden is wonderfully secluded with ample sun exposure from morning until evening,” say the owners. “There is a beautiful North American Redwood tree at the very back of the garden which was allegedly planted when the house was built. The front of the house is gated and fenced, with ample parking for many cars, and also enjoys plenty of sun.”

The local area has much to recommend it, too. “We are ideally situated within walking distance of March town centre,” say the owners, “with its many shops and supermarkets as well as a great local butchers and a popular market two days a week. There are also plans to transform the town centre and riverside of March in the near future. There is a train station conveniently located at one end of the street, too, which operates an hourly service eastbound to Cambridge and Stansted Airport as well as westbound services towards Peterborough, Leicester and Birmingham.”

“The overall Victorian characteristics throughout the house are simply superb, and traditional features have been lovingly restored amidst more modern renovations to create the perfect blend of old and new.”

On entering the good size living room to the right of the entrance hall you cannot help but feel the warm and cosy ambience and with the dual aspect windows and glazed single door to the rear garden the room is light and airy. The wood beams and fireplace with log burner provide plenty of character and stairs lead up to the first floor.

Seller Insight

“The property is very characterful and full of original features, including beautiful old beams and working fireplaces. The views over open farmland from the rear of the property are wonderful and they were a big attraction for us when we came to view it for the first time just over 15 years ago,” say the owners.

“We are located on the quiet end of a very attractive road in the little village of Gamlingay that is very well served for amenities, including two pubs, a Co-op, newsagents, and hairdressers. The village primary school feeds into Comberton Village College which is regarded as one of the best schools in the UK and it also hosts an amazing firework event every year. Commuter links are excellent and Biggleswade station gives easy access to London and Brighton. There’s plenty to do in the local area, including trips to the Shuttleworth Collection and Duxford Imperial War Museum, as well as Wimpole Hall and numerous other National Trust properties.”

“The garden is of a good size and is fully enclosed. It’s private and secure, so it’s perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The summerhouse has full electrics and has previously been used as a home office, whilst the large shed provides useful storage facilities for bikes, mowers, and other garden essentials. We have a very prolific plum tree, walnut tree, gooseberry and blackcurrant bushes, and a grape vine. The squirrels like the walnuts though, so be quick with the harvest! There is a huge array of birdlife in the garden and we’ve seen badgers and muntjac deer in the fields behind us. I also very much enjoy tending to the Mediterranean herb garden which is full of rosemary, sage, and lavender bushes.”

“I think my favourite room has to be the dining room with the wooden flooring, large fireplace, and oak table. It’s a very nice room, especially in winter with a roaring fire providing a beautiful focal point. The kitchen is another lovely room where we do all our cooking on the Rayburn which always provides a warm welcome for visiting guests.
