5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in High Street, Molesworth, Cambridgeshire

4 5 3
This charming and very well presented family home dates back to 1650 in parts and was originally two separate houses. Located in the very desirable village of Molesworth , approximately ten miles to the West of Huntingdon and with very easy access to the A14 and A1 for routes into Cambridge and London.
Chequers and Brookfield Cottage offers very versatile living accommodation with a very tasteful blend of traditional period features and modern contemporary finishes. There are four generous reception rooms, five bedrooms, three bathrooms and additional WC. Outside is a very well maintained, South West facing rear garden with views over Millenium Green, double garage and workshop.
The village of Molesworth is very popular with families and has access to several good local schools and the Kimbolton Academy. The property is offered for sale with no onward chain.

"27 years ago, we discovered our dream house in this country cottage in a quiet village location," say the current owners of Chequers, "perfectly situated for commuting to London, Peterborough and Cambridge."

Originally two separate properties, Chequers has been adapted and sympathetically restored, with exquisitely detailed finishing, creating a large Grade II listed family home. "We have made substantial renovations," say the owners, "stumbling across and exposing various lost original features that give the house its character, in the process of modernising the house for contemporary living. Amongst these lovely surprises were two inglenook fireplaces, original wooden beams, and even a well, all of which we have lovingly incorporated into our scheme of décor."

The ground floor centres around the kitchen breakfast room, while four generous reception rooms are ideal for entertaining and everyday family life. "The kitchen is wonderfully light and airy," say the owners, "and is where we always eat together as a family, while the family room 'den' is a favourite space for our teenage sons and their friends to play music, pool, gaming and table tennis." There is also a modern family shower room and large separate utility/laundry room. Three staircases provide access to different areas of the first floor, with its five bedrooms, two further bathrooms and separate WC.

"The outside spaces also have much to offer, the extensive gardens being landscaped into three main areas with decking and herbaceous borders. The courtyard/patio area is ideal for summer entertaining and al fresco dining, and leads to a beautifully kept kitchen garden. This in turn provides access to the brick workshop/garage that was once part of the village blacksmith's forge. At the rear, apple and plum trees, and a further vegetable patch sit alongside a large newly-built timber double garage and football goal."

A quintessential English village, Molesworth itself has been designated a conservation area by Huntingdon District Council, with several listed buildings and village pub. "We love being at the heart of the conservation area, and surrounded by open countryside," say the owners, "with miles of local footpaths for walking the dog. The village itself centres around the Millennium Green and village hall with village social events, weddings and community parties being hosted. There is also an Astroturf tennis court/football pitch in the village." Amongst local attractions are the historic Kimbolton castle, sailing and fishing at Grafham Water, Huntingdon races, Rockingham raceway and Kimbolton kart track. Located in the west of Cambridgeshire about 2 miles from the Northamptonshire border, the village is conveniently situated just off the A14 half way between Kettering and Huntingdon, 30 minutes from Cambridge, Northampton and Peterborough. Huntingdon railway station is easily reached for services to Kings Cross every 30 minutes with a journey time of just 45 minutes. "Despite being so well placed for local communications," say the owners, "the village has no through traffic, so is beautifully quiet."
