Property description

This magnificent period home is situated in the heart of one of Cambridgeshire's most desirable villages and boasts an expansive plot of 1.18 acres. The property has been thoughtfully extended to provide a wealth of living space, making it the perfect home for modern family living.

Step inside and you'll discover a stunning, recently refitted kitchen breakfast room featuring luxurious stone work surfaces, a large peninsula island and a range of integrated appliances. This space is ideal for both casual dining and entertaining. For more formal occasions, the grand 32-foot dining room with exposed beams and inglenook fireplace provides an impressive setting for dinner parties. The dual aspect living room also features exposed beams and an open fireplace, with both rooms overlooking the beautifully manicured front gardens. Two additional reception rooms at the rear of the property include a garden room with a walk-in box bay window and French doors leading to the garden. Two cloakrooms and a utility room complete the ground floor.

Upstairs, the four well-proportioned bedrooms are served by two en-suites and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom also benefits from a large walk-in cupboard. A separate staircase leads from the garden room to a self-contained guest suite with a bedroom, bathroom, and large study. This space could easily be converted into an annexe if desired.

Outside, the property is accessed via a large gravel drive, providing ample parking and turning space, as well as access to a double garage. The front facade is adorned with a mature wisteria and a quarry tile terrace is an ideal spot to enjoy the views over the front lawn. A selection of trees give privacy. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with an abundance of specimen trees. An outbuilding, which used to be an indoor pool, has had a new flat roof with four flat windows in 2018 but requires further improvements offering plenty of potential.

The village pub restaurant is within walking distance, as are numerous riverside walks. The neighbouring village of Hemingford Grey offers a well-regarded school, an excellent pub restaurant, a village shop, and a sports pavilion. Additional facilities can be found in the nearby riverside market town of St. Ives. Major roads and a mainline station are easily accessible, allowing for straightforward commutes to Cambridge and London.


Village information

The Hemingfords (Abbots and Grey) are situated along the banks of the River Great Ouse and are well-known as a very picturesque and sought-after Cambridgeshire village. Much of the villages are in a Conservation Area with many thatched cottages and barns and other architecturally important buildings such as the Grade I listed church with its spire being a landmark for miles around the Ouse valley.

Hemingford Abbots has excellent facilities: across the road from the “Axe & Compass” pub is the purpose-built Village Hall and playing field. The playing field with open grassland is equipped with modern children’s play equipment. The village shares many facilities with neighbouring Hemingford Grey: village shop, post office, primary school and sports pitches and the award winning “Cock” pub. Between the two villages there are a variety of clubs, societies and activities such as the annual Regatta and biennial Flower Festival.

Transport

The Hemingfords sit between the towns of Huntingdon and St Ives where a wider selection of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities are available. The newly modified A14 provides quick and easy access into Cambridge and links to the A1, M11 and the national motorway network. Huntingdon has a railway station, approx. 10 minutes’ drive away, with fast trains into London King’s Cross in approx. 50 minutes and links to the North via Peterborough whilst St Ives offers the Guided Busway service to the Cambridge Science Park and city centre.
