Property description

Charming Grade II Listed home set in approximately an acre. Period features throughout the accommodation including two large reception rooms with French doors to the rear garden, inglenook fireplaces and excellent head height. A gated drive leads to a barn offering garaging, storage and an opportunity to create more living space. Located in this sought after and very well served village with excellent access to Cambridge and London.

“A lovely property with plenty of historic original features, this beautiful old timber-framed cottage dates back to the early 16th or perhaps even early 15th century, ” says the vendor of 18 Middle Street in the charming Cambridgeshire village of Great Gransden. “Originally the meeting house for the village, then at a later stage a farmhouse, the property has served various purposes during its lifetime, now providing a unique 3 bedroom home with 3 bathrooms and 2 reception rooms.”

“Enjoying a slightly raised position above the level of the road, the cottage is impressive even from the approach, ” continues the vendor, “with half a dozen steps leading up to the front path. The listed cottage itself sits within grounds totalling over an acre, which are divided into two parts. The back part of the garden is given over to a wildflower paddock, while the part closer to the cottage is mostly laid to lawn with a pond and a patio area for outdoor entertaining. A generous driveway provides plenty of guest parking, the property also benefitting from a large detached timber barn with adjoining garage.”

The village of Great Gransden itself is both charming and dynamic, with a variety of period and modern properties, a primary school, village shop/post office and a popular local pub. Various community events bring neighbours together, for example the Gransden and District Agricultural Society’s annual Gransden Show. Everyday retail facilities are available nearby at Cambourne and St Neots, with more comprehensive shopping, schooling and leisure opportunities available in the historic university town of Cambridge just 12 miles from Great Gransden. Educational opportunities for children of all ages are of a very high standard in Cambridge, for example at independent schools such as St John's & King's College prep schools, St Faith's, St Mary's, The Perse CoEd, Stephen Perse Foundation schools and The Leys.

Both St Neots and Royston stations provide mainline rail services to London Kings Cross, while road infrastructure is also excellent with the A1 at St Neots reached via the A428 just north of the village, leading to the A14, M11 and Cambridge.

“The garden’s two-part layout provides a varied outlook, while the patio area is very private and a relaxing place to sit on a summer evening.”

“The second oldest property in a village full of pretty heritage buildings, this old house has a lot of character due to beautiful original features such as the inglenook fireplaces and exposed wooden timbers.”

“The generously proportioned lounge is the nicest room in the cottage with its original timbers and inglenook with open fire.”

“I have many memories of my parents hosting family gatherings here at the cottage, even sometimes with a marquee in the pleasantly private garden on special occasions.”
