Polkadot Homes are delighted to be working with such an impressive example of 1930’s architecture on display within this substantial non-estate family home.

Taking its position and location on the highly regarded ‘Bury Road’, not to mention the stunning beautifully manicured, well stocked gardens into account, this Cambridgeshire country residence really is something very special simply radiating sophistication and class.

Measuring in excess of 3,200 sq ft, the property has also recently benefitted from a tasteful transformation whilst of course retaining and preserving all of its original features and charm.

The updated improvements were also carefully selected making sure the changes were either in keeping with the 30’s era or it complements the existing feature(s), either way the end result being a substantial dwelling enjoying the benefits of modern living however still surrounded with history and character.

Currently being offered for sale with ‘No Forward Chain’, internally the property briefly comprises five generous bedrooms, refitted first floor two-piece family bathroom with adjacent cloakroom, impressive gallery landing, refitted 21ft open plan kitchen breakfast room with central island unit and fitted breakfast bar which then opens up again inviting you into the more informal living area known as the 29ft garden room where windows are plentiful and which spans across the majority of the rear of the property encouraging you to admire the setting, separate utility room, four generous reception rooms all boasting enviable views over the well-stocked gardens and generous formal entrance lobby with Oak effect Karndean flooring.

Sitting centrally on an exquisite plot measuring approx 1/2 an acre, externally the property enjoys mature well kept gardens strategically placed utilising the entire plot and of course factoring in the Westerly facing rear garden throughout. Further points that may not be obvious from the photographs alone include a substantial patio/entertaining area and the dense greenery covering the front property border which were planted to create a picturesque screen with the view to absorbing street noise but also to create privacy, both of which were successfully accomplished.

Parking provisions are in place via the extensive driveway creating a more than generous parking area to the front of the dwelling laid to a mixture of tarmac and gravel adjacent. The driveway then continues alongside the property to the larger than average double garage/workshop which in our opinion could be used to create a self-contained Annexe or indeed some external office or storage space (subject to the relevant regulations).

The small market town of Ramsey is located north of the larger towns of Huntingdon and St.Ives and was built around the Benedictine Abbey. The town offers a wide range of amenities including shops, restaurants, leisure centre with swimming pool, a primary and secondary school as well as early years children providers. There is also a museum dedicated to rural life and the town annually plays host to one of Britain's largest living history events.

Fast and Direct mainline train links into London Kings Cross can be found from both Huntingdon (approx 11 miles) and Peterborough (approx 12.5 miles). Also available, from St Ives (approx 11.5 miles), is the Guided Busway which provides a traffic free, fast and frequent service connecting the town with the Cambridge Science Park and Central Cambridge.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged by calling Polkadot 7 days per week including Bank Holidays.
