Property description

Open field views to the rear, a self-contained one-bedroom annexe, and excellent transport links to London and Cambridge.

Set back from the road, with a mature hedge and five-bar gate opening onto a generous block-paved drive, this beautifully presented home combines privacy with a well-served village. Traditional features such as exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace sit alongside contemporary design, convenience, and high-end fixtures and fittings.

Stepping inside, the entrance hall has a return staircase with a large window flooding the space with light. The living room, with a wood-burning stove, opens to a modern orangery with underfloor heating, a lantern above, and bifold doors that open onto the rear garden and wonderful views beyond. While the wood-burning stove is ideal for cosy evenings, the large proportions and orangery make it equally ideal for entertaining larger groups.

The extended kitchen living dining room also boasts bifold doors and a vaulted ceiling with Velux windows. The luxurious kitchen includes a range of integrated appliances and Corian work surfaces. This open-plan space is the heart of the home and perfect for families and couples. A utility room provides additional storage and space for laundry. There is also a cloakroom and study on the ground floor.

Originally there were four bedrooms on the first floor, and this could be easily reinstated if required. Currently, the principal bedroom includes a fitted dressing room and en suite. The further two bedrooms are well served by a family bathroom.

The landscaped rear garden includes a deck, patio, lawn, and summer house overlooking the views, surrounded by established planting providing privacy. The self-contained annexe has been finished to the same high standards as the main house and has numerous uses, including intergenerational living, home working, and hobbies.

Seller Insight
Bumper Hall Penn boasts traditional features such as beams and exposed brickwork, combined with modern open-plan living. It is a home to enjoy year-round, whether relaxing in front of the log burner in winter or entertaining guests in the garden during summer. ‘The house is very private, set back from the road behind a gated drive, and both the house and garden are very well connected, almost becoming one when both sets of bi-fold doors are open,’ say the owners. The front drive is generous, private, and gated. A path through the side gate leads to a secluded, well-maintained garden with a large decking area, patio, pond, and lawn, culminating in a summer house perfect for evening drinks with countryside views. Laurel bushes on either side ensure privacy.

The air-conditioned annex at the garden's end features bi-fold doors on two sides, a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, built-in workspace, and concealed shelving, ideal for home working. Additionally, it offers outside-accessible storage space, making it a perfect independent living area.

Well connected to Cambridge and London, with quick access to Luton Airport, the village itself was the primary attraction. ‘We loved its peacefulness, friendliness, good shop, post office, local events, and choice of good primary schools.’

‘Royston train station is just five minutes away, with London reachable in 30-40 minutes. Nearby villages are easily accessible by bike, and Cambridge, Hitchin, and other Hertfordshire destinations are a short drive away.’

‘With excellent schooling for all ages, a village playground, sports clubs, and plenty of fresh country air, it’s a great location to raise children. The local pub is being refurbished and will open soon, and the village boasts a fitness and Pilates studio as well as an obstacle training ground.’

‘I particularly love the open-plan kitchen and dining room, and the orangery with its lantern roof; it makes the space incredibly light and airy.’

‘The annexe has been a fantastic asset, allowing for comfortable home working and providing a unique space for relaxing and accommodating guests in comfort and privacy.’ ‘We have very friendly neighbours on both sides.’

‘We'll miss the convenient location and the unique mix of features, including the generous space, natural light, and stunning views.’
