Mill Road, Buckden, St. Neots, Cambridgeshire
Buckden is one of the most sought after villages in Huntingdonshire offering its own marina, an array of eateries, fabulous pub and selection of boutique shops. Nestled between the market towns of St Neots and Huntingdon, both of which have high speed rail links to London and Peterborough as well as excellent access to the A1.
Also in the village is the outstanding Ofsted rated Buckden primary school and the highly regarded Hinchingbrooke secondary school is just a short bus ride away. The bus for Kimbolton Academy also services the village.
In the immediate surrounding area is Hinchingbrooke Country Park with nature trails and woodland areas very popular with joggers and dog walkers, for the slightly more adventurous Grafham Waters is close by offering a variety of outdoor pursuits and water sports.
21 Mill Road is a stunning 5 bedroom detached Victorian family home in the very heart of the village, which has been greatly extended and modernised to the most exacting standards by the current owner. Every detail has been taken care of to create a simply stunning forever home. This immaculate, light , bright and airy property needs to viewed to fully appreciate what has been created.
"We are often drawn to older buildings," say the current owners of this newly refurbished 19th century/modern family home. "With its pretty cream smooth rendered frontage with ornate brick corbelling details and matching sash windows and door, the house has such personality and character."
Since purchasing the property, the owners have put much love and care into turning it into a modern family home. "We have transformed the shell of the old 3 bedroom house into a 5-6 bedroom home," they say, "with the addition of an extension in keeping with the cream masonry render of the original building. The kitchen is now large and open plan, providing a sociable living and entertaining space. We even laid a patio across the whole back of the house in a complementary cream stone to match, integrating and opening up the indoor and outdoor spaces. There are a pair of French doors in each of the rooms at the rear of the house, all opening out onto the garden, so the living accommodation is beautifully light and airy. The garden room and dining room are lovely places to sit and look out over the garden."
The owners have made the most of the outdoor space too, having landscaped the garden with low maintenance lawns, shrub borders, and a patio seating area for al fresco dining and summer entertaining. "In the warmer months, the patio and garden provide a very sociable outdoor space," say the owners. "One could easily spend all of one's time out there in good weather!"
The location of the property has much to recommend it, being set within the desirable village of Buckden. "The village boasts an excellent primary school and nursery school," say the owners, "each just a short walk from the house. There are two good pubs in the village, including The George, which is renowned for the fine dining experience it provides. People also travel to Buckden for upmarket shopping, as there is a variety of bridal boutiques, clothing stores, shoe shops, hairdressing salons, and more. One can also walk to the Marina for a drink and a meal, or become a member to use the swimming pool and gymnasium. Grafham Water is close by too for water-sports and sports and social clubs."
