Property description

This exceptional home seamlessly blends the finest aspects of period charm and modern living, situated on a sprawling 0.91 acre plot neighboured by woodland.

Upon entering through the double oak doors and full-height glazing, natural light floods the interior, illuminating the reception hall which features a bar and seating area, perfect for entertaining. The galleried landing above elegantly connects the old and new elements. At the heart of this residence lies the open-plan kitchen breakfast living space, enriched by oak bifold doors at both front and rear, a wood-burning stove, and a lavish kitchen. Adjacent to this, a utility room and cloakroom provide practical convenience. Within the modern extension, you'll discover a dining room and a study. Adding to the appeal are three additional reception rooms, replete with a wealth of period features, including a fireplace with a wood-burning stove in the living room.

Upstairs, the principal bedroom suite, adorned with a vaulted ceiling, boasts a balcony, an en suite, and a walk-in wardrobe. The remaining bedrooms are well-served by a family bathroom, complemented by a dressing area for bedroom five.

The property's flexible layout allows for one or two of the reception rooms to be transformed into an en suite guest bedroom, serving as an annex or private space for visitors.
Approaching the house, a sweeping gravel driveway leads to a turning circle featuring a central well, accompanied by a garage that includes an adjoining studio complete with a kitchenette, a shower room, and a storage area above.

Additionally, a timber lodge equipped with heating and air conditioning can serve as an office or a hobby room. The meticulously landscaped grounds encompass a gabion retaining wall, lawns, and an expansive patio area with an outdoor kitchen and dining space. Mature woodland borders the property, ensuring privacy and seclusion.

Seller Insight
“We both fell in love with the chocolate box property. We were blown away by its very special secluded location and wanted nothing more than to bring our wonderful growing family up at Saddlers to enjoy all that nature had to offer.

We were determined that the historic part of the original property should be retained. We plotted, planned and researched; the result being this brilliant family home in which old and new blend cleverly together. The old has its beams, and magical inglenook, integrated with convenience, luxury and comforts. Our main living space contains zones for cooking, dining and relaxing, it is perfect for day to day living, whilst being great for entertaining groups of friends and family. The old and new do come into their own at Christmas when the fire is aglow, beams are adorned, and everyone drifts from area to area.”

“Our large garden is mainly laid to lawn, with its backdrop of mature woodland, adding to its attraction. Our children and their friends have spent many happy hours here, playing safely and it does become an idyllic area for al fresco dining and sociable BBQs. In addition, the paddock has enabled the family pony to be close.”

“Schools are very close by, and there is transport to an excellent choice of independent schools within easy reach. The local town has good amenities, not least of which is its excellent baker’s shop and, nearby there is a first class farm shop. There are lots of excellent walks direct from the house and the adjacent Sandhills features a hill top Roman fort. The RSPB headquarters is also very close, and we enjoy walks around its trails. A little further away, but easy to reach, is Cambridge for wonderful shopping, architecture, and museums. The road and rail networks are excellent, and it is so convenient to hop on the train into London.”

“We are extremely proud the property and how we have managed to combine old and new together and blend the property comfortably into its surroundings. We have enjoyed extremely happy family times here including hosting many garden parties and even hosting our children’s joint christening on a fabulous summer day with marquees in the grounds. We wish its new owners much happiness.”
