We are delighted to offer for sale, as the vendors exclusive agent, this stunning, five bedroom detached family home set in a plot of approximately two acres in one of the most sought after locations in Huntingdon.
Holme Hill House was built in circa 1935 in the style of a Georgian manor house and has been beautifully updated and maintained by the current owners offering a sympathetic blend of traditional period features and modern contemporary twists.
Approaching through the gated driveway from a private lane it is immediately apparent that this is a family home unlike any other in the area. The gravelled drive sweeps gracefully past the detached double garages and front garden with its formal hedging and elegant fountain.
Entering through the main door into a large and welcoming reception hall, the ground floor is currently arranged with a large and very modern kitchen/utility and breakfast room with high gloss units, solid quartz work surfaces and built in appliances with views to the rear garden. There are two large studies overlooking the front aspect, a large light double-aspect sitting room, formal dining room, family room and two cloakrooms. There is a further single garage integrated at the side of the house together with access to the rear gardens and patios by wrought iron gates.
The first floor has five bedrooms with the principal bedroom suite offering a dressing room with a range of fitted wardrobes together with an en-suite bathroom. The primary guest room offers a dressing room and a modern en-suite with French windows to a large roof terrace. The three remaining bedrooms are served by a modern family bathroom with bath and shower facilities.
The annexe is completely self-contained and boasts a brand new fitted kitchen, modern family bathroom, two double bedrooms and a large lounge/dining area with views over the rear gardens. There is hard standing for a greenhouse.
The plot in total measures just under 2 acres and enjoys well-kept informal gardens to the rear and a greenhouse. It leads gently down to the river where kayaking and rowing can be enjoyed. There are fishing rights to the middle of the river. From the elevated position of the patio and the pergola there are views over Port Holme, the largest meadow in England and SSSI, and the rolling Cambridgeshire countryside for as far as the eye can see. This property must be viewed to be truly appreciated.
