Property description

Extended and renovated by the current owners, this beautifully presented home boasts a southeast facing garden.

The open-plan kitchen features bifold doors overlooking the garden. Recently installed, it boasts a breakfast bar island and integrated appliances, complementing an exposed brick wall.
It's an ideal space for entertaining and family life, while two reception rooms offer more private areas, each with a fireplace, one of which boasts a wood-burning stove. Additionally, there's a study with doors to the garden, a utility room, and a cloakroom.

Upstairs, the principal bedroom is particularly noteworthy, featuring a Juliet balcony, two Velux windows, a dressing room, and a luxurious en suite with a deep Japanese-style bath and separate shower. The three further bedrooms share the family bathroom.

Tucked away, a gravel driveway leads to parking and the front door. A line of mature trees provides a peaceful backdrop to the rear garden. Raised decking with glass balustrades extends from the kitchen, steps down to a paved dining area, and continues to a lawn with mature planting.

The character of this period home has been carefully retained while triple glazing and an air source heat pump provide modern convenience.

Seller Insight
“We immediately felt right at home here in this late Victorian property tucked away in a peaceful corner of Caxton. We loved the period features and views of the old Methodist chapel to the front and fields to the back. It’s tranquil and private with a charming cottage garden and offers outdoor living in the summer and cosy evenings inside during the winter,” say the owners.

“We completed a 2-storey side and rear extension in 2020 which was our ‘mini Grand Design’. It almost doubled the footprint of the original cottage and brought it into the 21st century with high-spec design features throughout. Our ambition was to retain the character of the cottage we adored, whilst creating a larger space that worked for our young family and that included creating an open-plan kitchen / diner and two new bedrooms with vaulted ceilings. We then re-orientated the space to overlook the garden with bifold doors for seamless indoor / outdoor living.”

“We love the rural setting and I'm grateful for the easy commute to London thanks to multiple train stations and lines a short drive away. There are loads of walks in every direction from our front door and we're out in the fields every day, often combined with a visit to the village playground.

The village pub has a great atmosphere and serves delicious food and there is a fantastic nursery a few minutes’ drive from the house. We frequently visit Cambridge (both for work and pleasure) and days out at local National Trust properties.”

“The larch veranda with glass balustrades maximises the views onto the garden and fields beyond and we like to sit there listening to birdsong, the babbling brook, and the church bells as the sun sets. We make woodfired pizzas every week and have hosted summer parties with our friends and their children which has created special memories for everyone. We're surrounded by nature with visiting muntjacs, birds in our nesting boxes, and farm animals. Our children enjoy the garden too, running along the ‘secret path’ and helping to plant vegetables.”

“The bespoke Tom Howley kitchen is the hub of our home; it’s equally perfect for coffee in the mornings, dinner as a family or catching up over a drink once the children are in bed. The sitting room provides a cosy retreat with a roaring fire on cold winter evenings and the home office is a lovely space to work. Upstairs, the highlight is the master bedroom with French doors and a Juliet balcony which allows us to feel like we're sleeping amongst the trees. We’ve lived here for nearly 6 years and moved in shortly after getting married; since then, we’ve had 2 children and a dog, and it’s been a wonderful family home.”
