A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire this stunning grade II listed, detached House, which is one of only seven domestic properties featured in *The Hartford Heritage Trail. On the outside, Old Manor Farmhouse has curb appeal in abundance, and on the inside the high standard is continued throughout.

Believed to date back to the late 17th century, the property has been tastefully and lovingly refurbished to achieve a warm and homely blend of old and new. Presented in excellent order, Old Manor Farmhouse now offers the discerning buyer all the modern amenities required for life today, whilst retaining just the right amount of character and charm of the period.

Situated on Main Street in Hartford and within a very short walk of pubs, shops, eateries and other local amenities, this impressive home offers extremely spacious accommodation throughout. There are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and two large reception rooms and a lovely farmhouse style kitchen and a further shower room on the ground floor. An added surprise to the accommodation, is the converted farm building at the bottom of the beautiful walled garden. Already equipped with light, power and internet, this would make a great home office, gym, hobby room or workshop.

One of the key features of this beautiful home is the quintessentially English walled garden. This is an idyllic and wonderfully maintained space, with mature shrubs, trees and plants. With its characterful split-level lawns, paved patios, covered pathway and its own wishing well, it is absolutely perfect for entertaining friends and family or simply relaxing in peace and quiet.

Unusually for properties of this type, there is the added benefit of a garage and a driveway situated to the side of the house, providing off road parking with access directly onto Main Street.

For families, Old Manor Farmhouse is situated within very easy reach of local schools and playing fields. For commuters, Huntingdon train station is just two miles away and provides trains to London in under an hour.
