The Fields, Park Lane, Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire, SG19
Completed in 2018 this Certified Eco-Home offers over 2600 square feet of flexible and versatile living space. Full of natural light, with stylish, open plan living, dining and kitchen space, with vaulted ceilings and bi-folding doors which look out onto the South facing rear garden. The property is heated by an air sourced heat recovery system and benefits from solar panels and storage batteries, meaning the estimated yearly energy cost for this property is just £1,200.
The rest of the living space is incredibly adaptable and offers two very smart ground floor bedroom suites, two double bedrooms on the first floor with potential to grow even further if needed.
Gamlingay is a very popular village as it offers an array of shops and facilities, transport links and access to some of the best schools in the area. It is also popular with commuters who need access to London, Cambridge or the North by both road and rail.
"We were attracted to the property by its innovative ECO and future proof design. It has upstairs and downstairs bedrooms, four bathrooms, and plenty of other space. The layout is very adaptable and it could easily be configured as a six-bedroom property if required. The rooms are of a very good size. We use the downstairs master suite as a cinema/exercise room and two of the other rooms as studies," say the owners.
"We have lived here for nearly 3 years and in that time, we have added an oversized brick-built double garage with electric doors, a large patio on two sides of the house that's ideal for entertaining and as a children's play area. We have also added solar panels and battery storage, plus a log burner that's a wonderful feature in the colder months."
"It's impossible to choose just one favourite room as the open layout is such a joy to use. The three sets of floor length bifold doors in the main rooms allow the space to be filled with natural light and they bring the garden indoors throughout the year. It's such a happy place all year round."
"The house and garden are perfect for day-to-day life and entertaining. We just open the patio doors to create a lovely, free flowing space to the private garden that is mainly laid to lawn and surrounded by hedging. The garden is very flat and spacious enough to house a large marquee if needed. We have entertained several times in this area and have accommodated a lot of guests with ease plus there's parking available for 10 or more cars on the drive."
"The strong sense of community in the village has become even more enhanced over the last year. There is a good choice of schools in the local area and everything we need is easily available in the village, including a chemist, GP surgery, Post Office, news agent, hair dresser, barber, Co-op, restaurant, takeaways, brasserie, and two pubs, along with a community centre and two churches who do a lot of good work together. The area is great for walking and our house is just a few yards from The Clopton Way. Gamlingay sits on the Greensand Ridge which has many footpaths across it and there are plenty of cycling areas around here, plus an active cycling group in the village."
Gamlingay is full of charming cottages and narrows streets and is steeped in history.
