Shire Lodge is a charming five bedroom detached chalet style bungalow set in a glorious plot of just over half an acre with over 2500 square feet of versatile living accommodation.

Located on the periphery of the village of Bury, and within easy reach of the bustling towns of Ramsey and Huntingdon, the property offers stunning views of the Cambridgeshire countryside and very light and bright living space throughout.

Entering through the electric gates onto the plot you immediately become aware of the beautiful wrap around garden which is an absolute joy and has open views from every aspect. There is a generous double garage as well as ample additional parking.

The house itself is currently arranged with a formal lounge, formal dining room, huge dual aspect games room and bar, kitchen with separate utility room, three bathrooms and three bedrooms on the ground floor.

The first floor, which is accessed by an impressive central staircase, consists of a small fifth bedroom and a large primary suite with study area, dressing room and full sized en-suite bathroom.

The property also benefits from solar panels and a ground sourced heat recovery system which makes this home very energy efficient.

Seller Insight

“We loved the look of the house when we first came to view it just over 19 years ago and I immediately knew that I wanted to live there. It was quite deceptive from the outside as we opened the door and realised just how large it actually was which was a very pleasant surprise, ” say the owner.

“We’ve run the property as a bed and breakfast business over the years and have made some changes to accommodate that which included the addition of two extra bathrooms which has worked very well. We also built a double garage which has provided extra storage space for us but perhaps one of the best changes has been the addition of air conditioning to our bedroom which is ideal in the summer as it provides a cool retreat at the end of a hot day.”

“The location is fabulous. There are no neighbours nearby but we’ve never felt isolated as everything we need is easily accessible, including shops and a great range of restaurants. It’s ideal for golf enthusiasts as we live next to the golf club and we also enjoy taking our dog Buster for long walks in the countryside.”

“The large garden is south west facing and enjoys the sun throughout the day and into the evening. The countryside views are stunning all year round and the farmer keeps it looking at its best. There’s always some interesting wildlife to see, including squirrels, red kites, and pheasants, as well as a huge variety of birds who live in the hedges. The garden is fully enclosed, so it’s perfect for animals and children, and it’s a great spot for relaxing and entertaining on the decking and BBQ area. Shire Lodge is a real party house as there’s plenty of room for guests to mingle outside and the indoor bar opens out to the hall and dining room which is great when we’re entertaining friends and family.”

“It’s hard to choose just one favourite room as we like them all. The lounge is a cosy space to relax in a comfortable chair and our bedroom is absolutely huge with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It’s so peaceful with nothing but the sound of birdsong to break the silence, ” conclude the owners.
