Property Description
The Property

Market House is a truly unique and individual home that has been meticulously crafted and finished to a particularly high specification throughout using carefully chosen materials. Blending modern functionality with timeless elegance, the accommodation is set across one floor and extends to around 1200 sqft. The gated driveway and landscaped sunken terrace leads to the front door where there is an entrance hall with a glazed door to the impressive open plan kitchen / dining / living areas. The living and dining areas with contemporary wood burning stove and polished concrete floors, are bathed in natural light from the 7.5m floor to ceiling double-glazed sliding doors, that open to the large, south-facing paved terrace with a walled garden beyond, offering a great space to relax or entertain. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke white oak and walnut cabinetry incorporating LED lighting, ‘Corsten’ bronze handles, built-in appliances, a breakfast bar and a pantry unit.

The internal hallway leads to the three double bedrooms, each with framed views of the garden, including the principal bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a luxury en-suite shower room, with micro cement finishes to wall and ceiling, along with Mandarin Stone tiles and quality fittings. There is a further family bathroom and a utility room with a door to outside.

Outside, the property is set back from the road on a private gravel driveway to the rear of No.151 High Street, and offers both privacy and seclusion whilst being part of the established village setting. The garden and grounds have been beautifully landscaped to include a gated gravel driveway offering parking for several cars, walled garden laid mainly to grass, with landscaped beds and mature trees, along with a generous sunken terrace and a bin/cycle store. There is also ambient lighting installed. The property also has a living sedum roof.


Melbourn is an historic village with the Icknield Way running along its southern boundary, now bypassed, lying about 10 miles south of Cambridge and 3 miles north of Royston. The Parish Church of All Saints dates from the 13th century and the village is noted for its fine old cottages.

Usual local facilities are readily available and the village has a wide range of local shops. Communications are excellent and Meldreth mainline station is close by which can provide a link to London King's Cross in under one hour and Cambridge within 17 minutes . Education facilities are good and there is the well known Melbourn Village College nearby.
