Property description

This stunning Victorian family home has been refurbished by the current owners to a very high standard with high quality fixtures and fittings throughout whilst retaining some of the original features. The property has been transformed into a fabulous four (previously five) bedroom home with four large reception rooms and a beautiful kitchen breakfast room. 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. The property is situated within the popular village of March and is a 5-minute walk to the thriving town centre and is within walking distance of the train station allowing access to London Kings Cross.

On entering the property, the entrance hall has a very grand feel with period floor tiling and an oak staircase and you cannot but notice the impressive ceiling height throughout the property, so traditional for the period. 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 complete the ground floor there is the snug which is the perfect room for those who want to enjoy some quiet time and a palatial family room with walk in box window and French doors providing access to the garden.

On the first floor, the principal bedroom has a wonderful window seat overlooking the front garden and the adjoining room (previously bedroom 5) has been transformed into a spacious and luxurious dressing room. There are three further bedrooms which are all good size double rooms. The family bathroom has been re-fitted with a high standard fitted four-piece suite.

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.”
