Property Description

Charity Hall enjoys a wonderfully prominent position close to the centre of the village within the conservation area and within striking distance to the local amenities. The property is believed to date back to late Georgian times, however there is a 16th century main beam running across one of the reception rooms, so the property’s actual age is somewhat of a mystery. From the 1950s the property was the main house of a farmstead and in fact remained in the same ownership until its comprehensive and sympathetic restoration in 2014. Many original features have been preserved including Georgian hornless sash and Yorkshire slide sash windows and handsome period fireplaces. The accommodation was then re-arranged to suit modern living with three reception rooms, two of which have open feature fireplaces and all arranged around a fabulous central kitchen/breakfast/family room. The kitchen is fitted with attractive cabinetry, ample granite working surfaces with matching central island with granite top and breakfast bar and a range of integral appliances including a four ring ceramic hob, double oven, extractor and dishwasher, with space for a fridge/freezer. Off the side lobby is a cloaks/wc and a handy utility room. Upstairs, off the landing there are five good sized bedrooms including a guest bedroom with en suite facilities. The master bedroom is an elegantly proportioned room with an original fireplace and fitted cupboard. The family bathroom boasts a feature roll top bath and a shower. When renovated the property was rewired, plumbed and has high-speed wired ethernet throughout. Outside, to the side there is a discreet parking area for several vehicles and an English Heritage oak framed double cart lodge. The current owners have utilised one part for garaging with a generous loft storage area above. The rear garden extends to about 100’ in length and enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion and is laid mainly to lawn with raised flower and shrub borders and beds. There is a generous sandstone terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and to the rear of the garden there is a large timber decked area, perfect for summer evening entertaining.


Fowlmere is situated about 9 miles south of Cambridge, 6 miles from Royston and is an attractive village which retains numerous period homes of considerable character.
