As you turn into the private road and begin the hedge-lined drive to the barns, you get an overwhelming feeling that you have arrived somewhere very special. Amongst the barns, The Dovecote itself stands tall, quite literally and can be seen over the trees as you travel along the private road.

From the gravelled courtyard, its brick-built tower and imposing arched porch is the main focal point and really piques the interest and draws you in.

As you enter the house through the huge, glazed doorway, the bright hallway and galleried staircase lead the eye up all the way to the second-floor level, giving an amazing sense of height and space. Underfoot, the Karndean wood-effect flooring warmed by underfloor heating leads easily into the double-height living area where the comfy sofa area, dining area and open plan kitchen blend together below an open mezzanine gallery.

The kitchen consists of pale cream units and contrasting dark granite work surfaces, with a combination of free-standing and integrated appliances. There are French doors from this very sociable space that give access to the garden outside, where there’s an astro-turf lawn, raised borders with sleepers and an open-barn style covered area, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining, no matter what the weather.

Back inside, The Dovecote’s spacious design provides a further separate lounge, ideal for watching movies or relaxing in cosy, quiet privacy away from the open plan living areas.

Upstairs on the first level are two bedrooms, each of which with generous en-suite shower rooms. They are both generous double rooms and both have built-in cupboards / wardrobes and one is double height, with a stunning vaulted ceiling. The large, galleried mezzanine, overlooking the ground floor is currently used as a study /snug, but could easily double up as a further guest bedroom as required.

The bedroom on the second-floor level occupies almost the entire second floor, and has its own spiral staircase that leads to a bathroom above. Again, the suite is contemporary and stylish, and the free-standing bath is positioned so you can make the most of the spectacular view from the bedroom’s high windows visible through an ingenious glazed panel.

The quality of the build of The Dovecote and the whole of Merton Grange Barns is extremely high, and the detailing has been spared no thought. The impressive, contemporary design, air source heating and great decorative elements make it feel as much like a trendy London loft-style home as a barn conversion in a rural setting on the edge of a village.

At the bottom of the garden adjacent to the open-barn area, there is a large storage shed providing a secure place for bikes and other outdoor equipment. Parking is generously provided for too. Accessed via the storage shed and to the rear of the open barn area, there is parking for two cars in a covered cart lodge style, carport. There is also a third allocated parking space in the courtyard directly opposite the front door, as well as several guest spaces.

Gamlingay village centre is a short walk away and you can commute to central London by train from nearby Sandy in approximately 40 minutes. St Neots, Bedford and Cambridge are also an easy distance by car.

If you are looking for a stunning, unique, and relatively low maintenance home set in peaceful countryside, with the convenience of being easily commutable to London, you’d be hard-pressed to find one with more contemporary style or more 'wow factor' than The Dovecote.
