Property description

Non-listed Georgian former vicarage set in grounds of approximately 3 acres within walking distance of the town centre.

While located in the bustling and well-served suburb, the generous plot and abundance of mature specimen trees provide a peaceful and private oasis. Powered gates open onto a long gravel drive, revealing the grand front facade dominated by two large bay windows and an elegant stone-pillared portico. The landscaped grounds wrap around the house, creating wonderful vistas that can be enjoyed from both the house and grounds.

Throughout, the large windows and tall ceilings flood the accommodation with natural light and highlight the period features effortlessly. Stepping inside, a spacious reception hall with an open fire is an ideal space to receive guests or enjoy a peaceful moment. Opposite, and enjoying a full-height bay window, is the sitting room with a further bay window overlooking the pond. The dining room sits next to the kitchen, ideal for entertaining and family gatherings. A study, prep kitchen, laundry, two cloakrooms, utility, and a further reception room complete the ground floor. Upstairs, the principal suite is well-appointed with a dressing room and large en suite, while a further two family bathrooms and a cloakroom serve the remaining six bedrooms.

The flexible layout allows for the rear of the house, with some minor amendments, to be used as an annexe for family, guests, or staff. The extensive outbuildings, including stables, provide further opportunities and could be developed into a detached annexe or leisure facility.

It is rare to find such extensive and private grounds in a central location. There is a wide variety of facilities within walking distance, including restaurants, bars, shops, and riverside walks. St. Neots train station provides regular commuter services into the capital in under an hour, while Cambridge is approximately 30 minutes away by car or via frequent bus services.

Seller Insight
This magnificent period home sits within its own private three acres of landscaped gardens and has been owned by the same family for over one hundred years. Once a vicarage known locally as ‘the jewel of Eaton Socon’. Set back from the road behind its private gates, this stunning Georgian property built in the early 1800s was cleverly increased in size during the Victorian era; an addition which blends in seamlessly with the older part of the house.

It has been an outstanding family home for many generations and is one that sympathetically reflects its unique history but, first and foremost, and despite its grandeur, it is a truly magical, welcoming, family home. Elegant, spacious rooms with high ceilings, coving, large windows enabling an abundance of natural light to flood through, plus glorious period fireplaces, are just a few of its historic charms to enjoy. Accommodation is generous and practical and has been the centre for so much family joy.

French doors lead out onto a spacious terrace and on into the magnificent, totally enclosed, outside area. Once again, there are many interesting features including delightful water structures. With such space, the house and garden are the perfect venue for enjoying the company of others. Glebe House and garden have forever been the gathering place for large family occasions, especially at Christmas and summer parties, often to include village events. There is a tennis court to enjoy, plus a delightful woodland copse which is an idyllic spot for children to explore and build dens or to camp. Being in a conservation area, the variety and wealth of visiting wildlife here is exceptional.

The village has good amenities, with access to delightful river walks and good pubs. The market town of St Neots is very close for a wider range of shops, and it is here where the main line station is located providing quick and efficient services into Kings Cross, St Pancras and on into the city. There is a wide choice of both state and independent schools, one being the renowned Kimbolton Independent school which is very easy to access. The beautiful city of Cambridge is also nearby which is a special place to visit for its wonderful architecture and access to wide ranging cultural activities.

It is now time for another family to experience the delights of living in such an amazing property in such a convenient location and the present owner knows that, whoever comes to live here, will experience an exceptional quality of life.
