4 bed for sale in Station Road, Sandy, SG19Offers over £900,000
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. It is very easy to understand why this feeling is one that has never diminished for the current owners during the six years they have lived here.
Converted in 2015 and occupying the largest plot on the development, ‘The Stables’ is a fabulous example of a contemporary barn conversion, offering exceptionally versatile living accommodation throughout. Upstairs there is a master suite at one end of the house and two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom across the bridged landing at the other. Downstairs there is a further bedroom suite, a huge lounge, a beautiful kitchen breakfast room, a very large dining hall, as well as a study and a family room, which could easily be used as bedrooms, offices or studios as required.
The exquisite blend of the Victorian architecture with the contemporary additions, is one very rarely found and really gives this property the ‘wow’ factor. All the rooms are very well proportioned, and the high ceilings enhance the feeling of spaciousness still further. The biggest impact however, is probably made in the entrance / dining hall. When you pass through the front door, you enter an absolutely cavernous hall with a full height vaulted ceiling and a hugely impressive galleried and bridged landing, which semi-divides the space beautifully. Perfect for entertaining, it is very easy to imagine large family gatherings and parties here and if somewhere to house a large Christmas tree is important to you, you will be hard pressed to find better.
Outside, there is a large wrap-around garden and a paddock of just under an acre in size with a chicken run, vegetable patch and a field stable offering the added potential for equestrian use. In fact, you are really only limited by your own imagination as to the possible uses for this delightful plot, with absolutely stunning views of the surrounding, rural Cambridgeshire countryside.
Although, located in a peaceful, semi-rural setting on the edge of the village of Gamlingay, The Stables offers the best of both worlds, by being within walking distance of the village centre. Here there are lots of local amenities, such as pubs, restaurants, shops, take-away food outlets, hairdressers, a local garage, as well as a doctor’s surgery and a pharmacy.
For lovers of the great outdoors, there are several country footpaths and bridle ways in the area, making it ideal for dog walkers, ramblers, joggers and horse riders alike
For families with younger children, Gamlingay Village primary School is just half a mile away, whilst for older children, The Stables is situated within the catchment area for the highly regarded Comberton Village College, which is just eleven miles away. For schools a little closer, Stratton School in Biggleswade is eight miles away and Sandy Upper School is just seven miles away.
Gamlingay is also well placed for commuters with both the A1 and the A428 within easy reach, whilst Sandy railway station is just 6 miles away and offers train services to London in around 45 minutes. The Cambridge Science Park is twenty-one miles away and the Cambridge Park & Ride is seventeen miles away. The nearest large town is St Neots, which is just eight miles away and offers many amenities including major shops, eateries, a cinema complex, bowling alley, a golf course and a boating marina to name just a few.
So, if a home with space, character and a countryside feel, along with all the benefits of local amenities is what you are looking for, ‘The Stables’ at Merton Grange Barns could well be the one for you. Please call Signature Homes on 01480 278170 to register your interest and arrange a viewing.
