Property Description

The property was built in about 1970 of traditional brick elevations under a pitched tiled roof, to an extremely spacious and flexible design of about 2550 sqft. Approached via a private gravelled driveway shared by just one other property, it is set well back from the road in the most discrete of positions, yet centrally located within this highly sought after village just a few miles from Cambridge. The property offers enormous scope for reconfiguration, modernisation or perhaps replacement (subject to planning consent) and is set within wonderful gardens and grounds of about 0.75 acres, with views over paddocks and farmland beyond. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with quarry tiled flooring and door to the sitting room with full height vaulted ceiling (about 6.2m high), exposed timbers, patio doors to garden, feature open fireplace and spiral staircase rising to the first floor. The dual aspect family room has patio doors to the courtyard garden area. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with base level and wall mounted storage cupboards, ample fitted working surfaces and breakfast bar, plus a one and a half sink unit with mixer tap and drainer, four ring ceramic hob, oven and extractor, and an integral full height fridge. Just off is a handy utility room with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a door through to a boot room with door to the garden and garage, and access to the home office/studio which could easily be converted to a self contained annexe, subject to the necessary building regulations. Off a side lobby there are four bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate wc. Off the inner lobby is the master suite with bedroom with fitted wardrobe cupboards, dressing room and a wet room. Bedroom 6 is located on the first floor and in the past has been utilised as a home office and a hobby room. Outside, a long private gravelled driveway provides access to both 9a & 9b and leads to a generous parking area for numerous vehicles and access to the double garage with electric up and over door, power and light connected. There are double doors providing ride-on lawnmower access to the rear garden. There are gardens on all sides, in all about 0.5 acres, laid mainly to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, and a wide and varied selection of specimen and fruit bearing trees, a fish/wildlife pond, a secluded courtyard patio and an enclosed dog run. The garden backs onto paddocks with views over countryside beyond and enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion.


Barton is a popular village enjoying a peaceful country setting just 3 miles south west of Cambridge and surrounded by open countryside. The village has the usual local amenities including two pubs, over a dozen independent shops at Burwash Manor, local post office and store, an excellent local primary school and the notable Comberton Village College is within cycling distance. The village is handy for access to the M11 - Junction 12 and nearby Cambridge mainline station provides fast transport to London Kings Cross and Liverpool Street. Stansted Airport is a short drive away.
