Offering spacious and well proportioned accommodation over three floors, this exquisitely presented 6 bedroom house at 1 Bakers Court has provided the ideal home for the current owners for the last 15 years. "We were initially drawn to the sociable layout and generously sized rooms," they say, "which have proven to be perfect for everyday life and entertaining alike, just as we had hoped. The ground floor living accommodation spreads out from the central hallway, so all the rooms feel connected."
Since moving in, the owners have made various improvements to the property, which was originally built in 1990. "We have laid new flooring and redecorated throughout," they say, "and installed a new modern kitchen, as well as replacing the bathrooms."
Much love and care has also gone into the gardens, which have been landscaped to provide privacy and relaxed seating, whilst leaving enough space for children to run around and play. "We love gardening," say the owners, "and enjoy spending time outdoors. We have enclosed the outdoor space with box hedging, lawns and a generous west facing patio area which catches the evening sun. The children love climbing the trees or using the swing which hangs from the branches."
Set in an exclusive cul-de-sac in the heart of the Cambridgeshire village of Great Gransden, the property enjoys the convenience of being close to local amenities. "We are less than a minute away from the village shop and park," say the owners, "as well as the local primary school. With an active social calendar full of clubs and community events, there is always plenty going on in Great Gransden, while the historic university town of Cambridge is just a few miles away for culture, shopping, and riverside walks."
For transport further afield, there are mainline train stations in nearby St Neots, Cambridge and Huntingdon, all offering services to London Kings Cross. By road, links to the M11 motorway and A1(M) are available via the A428.
Best thing about the grounds
"The west facing patio enjoys the afternoon sun, so we love to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine before a long summer sunset."
What they will miss most
"We shall miss the convenience of the location, being so close to all that the village has to offer, yet enjoying an immense sense of tranquillity."
"With its sociable layout and spacious reception rooms, the property is ideal for entertaining. The sunny patio and garden are perfect for relaxed summer barbecues, too."
"The kitchen and lounge are the rooms in which we spend most time as a family, being such generous, sociable spaces. Our children and their friends love the guest bedroom upstairs, which they have appropriated as a home cinema!"
