Built in the 1970s this well presented and spacious family home has been improved and extended to a very good standard by the current owners. Located in the desirable village of Great Gransden with a host of amenities which include an "Outstanding" Ofsted rated primary school, village shop and post office, popular village pub and excellent transport links to London and Cambridge. The property offers light and bright living accommodation over two floors which include four generous bedrooms with an en-suite to the master bedroom, modern family bathroom, dual aspect lounge, dine in kitchen, formal dining room and conservatory looking out onto the well presented garden.
Ideally located on a quiet road on the edge of the highly desirable village of Great Gransden is Number 28 Winchfield, a large and beautifully presented family home that has been much enhanced by the current owners. “The house is just lovely, but i’d say that it was the location, over and above everything else, that really sold it to us when we came across it twenty-five years ago, ” says the owner. “Great Gransden is a very pleasant and very traditional village with a nice mix of old and new properties; we have a fabulous pub that we can walk to, there’s a really good primary school just down the road and the sports facilities are excellent so it’s a fantastic place to raise a family. We also benefit from having superb local transport links so we can get just about anywhere with relative ease. In my opinion it’s a place that ticks an awful lot of boxes.”
“The house was built at some point in the 1970s and we moved here twenty-five years ago, so it wasn’t very old when we bought it and that was something else that drew us to it. It’s a well-constructed, well-designed family home with all the comforts of a modern build, and it’s very bright and spacious inside. During our time here we’ve replaced all of the windows and doors, the heating system has been overhauled, we’ve refurbished the kitchen, the main bathroom and the en suite, and we’ve also added a gorgeous west-facing conservatory. And outside we’ve replaced the driveway and the patio, and we’ve also added a large greenhouse. All in all the whole property is in great condition so the new owners won’t need to do a thing to it.”
“The house sits at the top end of a very quiet close, overlooking a pretty little green so despite being just a stone’s throw from the centre of the village, we enjoy utter peace and privacy here. We have a generous front garden, plenty of off-road parking, and at the back we have another large garden that’s well stocked with a range of perennials, which create a riot of colour during the spring and summer months. It’s a lovely-looking garden, but it’s very easy to maintain, which gives us much more time to enjoy it.”
Favourite room: “i’d probably choose the conservatory as my favourite part of the house. It’s a lovely big room that opens straight out onto the patio, so when the sun is shining, we can really bring the outside in. It’s also a super room because it connects via double doors to the main living room so we can create a huge space for entertaining.”
Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: “The village is a very vibrant place and one that has afforded us a superb quality of life. There are two shows every year, including the agricultural show where i’ve won around one hundred and fifty certificates for veg growing; there’s a range of clubs and societies to join so we’ve never been stuck for things to do, and we’re surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside so it’s a wonderful place for walking and cycling. It’s a place that offers real countryside living, but without the feeling of being out in the sticks.”
Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature): “As well as updating the interior of the house, we’ve also maximised its energy efficiency by having solar panels fitted, from which we receive a fairly hefty yearly income.”
What they’ll miss most / why they are leaving: “The house has been the perfect family home, but it’s the superb lifestyle and the community within the village that I think i’ll miss most when we leave, ” says the owner.
