5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in BUCKDEN, Cambridgeshire

3 5 2
A fine equestrian property built in 1997, Grafham Paddocks is a five-bedroom detached family home, located in the popular Cambridgeshire village of Buckden. It offers 6.5 acres of paddocks, alongside an 8-stable block, hay barn, tack room and a floodlit all weather manege. There is also a large triple garage block and timber garden office. The house is very well-presented with large rooms throughout, high-specification fixtures and fittings, and an indoor heated Swim Spa pool. The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe is approximately 10 miles away.

Ideally located on the edge of the thriving village of Buckden is Grafham Paddocks, a fine equestrian property that boasts eight acres of rolling grounds. "We bought the property twenty-one years ago and beforehand we'd been searching for somewhere with a substantial amount of land for quite some time, but it was the house itself that really caught our imagination when we came to view it," say the vendors. "Back then it was just three years old, but it had such a lovely ambiance and from the minute we stepped through the front door we knew it was the house for us."

"It has a very traditional layout and all of the rooms boast generous proportions, so there's a tremendous feeling of space throughout. We have a lovely big lounge, a formal dining room which is a great room to entertain in, a garden room, and a swim spa with lovely views across the paddocks. The kitchen has a huge island with space for another large dining table, so it's the room to which people tend to gravitate."

"Over time we've refurbished the bathrooms and kept the d�cor up to date and in good order, and just last year we gave the kitchen a makeover, so it's all in excellent condition. We also built a large summerhouse in the garden last year. However, if the new owners wanted to enhance it further, we have planning permission in place to add two small extensions which would add a shower room next to the swim spa, a study to the rear of the garden room, and also for additional stables."

"The house sits in around eight acres of land, which incorporates excellent equestrian facilities," continue the vendors. "We have a number of paddocks that surround the garden, creating not only a lovely outlook but also a fantastic degree of privacy. There are eight stables, a tack room, a hay barn and a floodlit manege, all of which are in excellent condition."

"Shortly after we moved here, we planted a great many trees and shrubs, which have matured nicely. We also planted two copses to encourage wildlife and give some shade to the paddocks. It's a beautiful environment to live in and we love nothing more than to sit out on a summer's evening watching the huge variety of birds that come to visit, just enjoying the sheer peace and tranquility of it all."

"In our opinion the location really couldn't be better," say the vendors. "Buckden is a lovely village and has so much to offer from high-end ladies' fashion, two hotels, a pub, and fulfilling everyday needs of a chemist, supermarkets, a butcher, hairdresser, doctor's surgery and dentist. We're also just a few minutes' drive from the thriving towns of Huntingdon and St Neots, both of which have railway stations straight into London."
