"What we have always loved about this property is how quirky and unusual it is," say the current owners, "from the very moment you step through the stable-style front door. Two of the rooms have curved walls, while exposed oak beams and decorative plaster mouldings provide further character and interest."

The layout of the property, in addition to spacious ground floor reception rooms, also takes the principle of upside down living with a delightful first floor sitting room. "The bay window to the front aspect allows plenty of light to flood into the room," say the owners, also affording lovely views. The exposed beams and feature fireplace create a wonderful feeling of warmth in the wintertime."

The outdoor space is just as beautiful as the interior of this picturesque home, with extensive gardens stretching over half an acre, including a stunning secret garden accessed via a footpath from the courtyard. "When we bought the property, we were excited at the prospect of having such a massive garden," say the owners, "as it meant that we could fulfil our dream of having our own smallholding. We have kept pigs, chickens and ducks, as well as nurturing a productive allotment area abundant with delicious fruit and vegetables. The garden is now mostly laid to lawn, with a large pond and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the surroundings."

The local area also has much to offer. "Potton has such a vibrant community spirit," say the owners, "and being just a stone's throw from the town centre, we are ideally located to enjoy all that it has to offer, including shops, pubs and a well regarded school."

"We shall miss the general feel and character of this property, so welcoming from the very moment you walk in."

"With its friendly sense of community, Potton is a wonderful place to live. Though nestled in the heart of rural Bedfordshire, it has all the amenities of Bedford and Cambridge nearby, too."

"We love the stunning kitchen/breakfast room, exquisitely fitted with quality units, quartz worktops, a double butler sink, and the all important gas fired AGA. It also boasts a walk in larder and enough space for a large table and chairs for relaxed family dinners."

"The property is brilliant for entertaining, due to the massive amount of space on the ground floor and the easy flow between the rooms."
