Property Description

The property enjoys a wonderful centre-of-village position with uninterrupted views over All Saints and St Andrew's Church, which dates back to the 12th century. The original property, was constructed in the 17th century as a farmhouse, and extended and refurbished by the current owners approximately 20 years ago. This programme of expansion and refurbishment was lovingly and considerately undertaken with great care to preserve the original building's rich history.

The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with chequered board flooring, flanked on either side by the two principal reception rooms both with exposed timbers, inglenook fireplaces and solid wood flooring. The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with bespoke cabinetry with matching solid oak working surfaces, ceramic butler sink, walk-in pantry, oil-fired Aga, space for a fridge-freezer and attractive engineered oak flooring. Adjacent is a side hallway, which provides an additional entrance but also incorporates a utility area with worksurface, ceramic double sink unit, fitted cupboards and space for the usual white goods and a freestanding, oil-fired central heating boiler. Just off the kitchen is a further useful room, which in the past has been utilised a home office and a playroom. Off the inner hallway is a cloaks w.c. and a bespoke dog-legged staircase to the first floor.

The first floor boasts a stunning galleried landing with generous eaves storage and three bedrooms plus a four-piece family bathroom including a claw-foot, roll top bath and shower cubicle. The master bedroom overlooks the village church and has a luxury ensuite shower room. On the second floor, there are two further double bedrooms, both with wash handbasins. Please note that these rooms are inter-linked making an ideal space for an au-pair or indeed a noisy teenager.

Outside, the front garden is enclosed by walling with a gravel driveway providing parking for at least three cars. Gated access leads to the side kitchen garden, which is laid mainly to paviour with raised flower and shrub beds, a timber shed and a wood store. This area steps up to a small wildflower garden beyond which is a vegetable, herb and fruit garden, and in turn this opens to the principal rear garden, which is laid mainly to manicured and shaped lawns, with well-stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, a wide and varied selection of ornamental trees and fruit bearing trees, bushes and shrubs, and all is enclosed by fencing and enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion, again with views of the village church.


Kingston is an admired village nestling within this most beautiful part of the South Cambridgeshire countryside, just 8 miles south-west of Cambridge City Centre and has a wonderful sense of community. As well as a village hall, there is a community orchard a few doors down from the property with medlars, quince, mulberries, greengages, heritage varieties of apples and pears. Excellent education facilities are available with good primary schools at Comberton and Bourn, a private nursery school in the village, and Comberton Village College provides excellent secondary education.

The vendor informs us that there is a regular bus service every hour into Cambridge as well as the village having easy access to the M11 (Junction 12 about 6 miles) and to both Royston and Cambridge mainline train stations, which provide fast access to London King's Cross and Liverpool Street.




There is no mains gas in the village and therefore there is an oil-fired central heating boiler. Mains electricity, water and drainage are connected.
