Nestled behind high hedging and automated gates in the peaceful Bedfordshire village of Pertenhall, this extremely attractive property will appeal to all sorts of buyers. The house itself boasts approximately 2,300 square feet of versatile accommodation. There are three / four bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, and three reception rooms and a beautiful kitchen / dining room downstairs. Outside, there is a large, secluded, child friendly garden, perfect for play or simply sitting and enjoying the panoramic views. This is a truly fantastic family home and an idyllic place to bring up children.

 

However, if you are looking for a property with equestrian facilities, this could also be the one for you. There are four acres of paddocks with post and rail boundaries and a brand new stable block and yard, with three stables, a tack room and a hay barn. The stables are equipped with light, power and water and are within sight and easy reach of the house. In addition to the automated gates, there are also larger, manually operated gates, allowing larger vehicles, such as horseboxes, to access a large area of hard-standing behind the stables, ideal for the loading and unloading of horses and livestock.

 

Gunnersbury Farm also offers prospective buyers freedom from the worries and concerns often associated with rural properties of this period. The current owners have spared no expense installing a new septic tank, new oil tank, a beautiful, resin bonded driveway with inset lights, automated security gates as well as bi-folding doors in the kitchen dining room, which showcase the countryside views beautifully.

 

Pertenhall itself is located approximately eight miles from St Neots, and 12 miles from Bedford, both towns offering train services to London in around forty minutes, making it ideal for commuters. The ever-popular Kimbolton School is under three miles away and Keysoe International Equestrian Centre is under four miles away. For lovers of the great outdoors, there are many countryside walks and bridleways on hand, perfect for dog owners, joggers, ramblers and horse riders alike.
