Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this simply stunning Georgian detached home, an iconic residence in the village of Melbourn that has formerly been an 18th century Inn and, in the mid to late 20th century, an antiques shop. Now this outstanding home offers over 4300sq ft of accommodation, with period features including high ceilings, large sash windows, wooden beams and feature fireplaces. Set on a deceptively private plot, in the region of a quarter of an acre, with a detached garage, gated driveway, parking for multiple vehicles, two distinctive garden areas and one having prior planning permission for a detached annexe.

Stepping inside, into the main entrance hall from the side of the property, you are welcomed by a large hall, setting the theme for the feeling of space throughout. The entrance hall, with feature parquet-tile flooring, also has a cloakroom toilet off. The ground floor consists of 4 reception rooms which are very flexible in their use depending on your needs and desires, currently utilised as a sitting room, drawing room with delightful feature fireplace and double doors out to the gardens, formal dining room and study/family room.

The kitchen/breakfast room is yet another fantastic space and also gives access to a cellar with power and light connected - with full standing height, it's a great additional space if you just need storage or perhaps it would make a great gym. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of wall and base units with granite work surfaces over, an inset double ceramic Butler sink with waste disposal. Integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer are included, along with a built-in pantry cupboard and space for a range oven/hob. The adjoining utility room offers yet further storage with room for both a washing machine and tumble drier.

Two staircases from the ground floor give access to the first-floor bedrooms, feeling equally as spacious as the ground floor living space and again with feature fireplace and split level floors in areas, continuing the character feel. There are 6 well-proportioned bedrooms, mostly very large double rooms and there is certainly no box room. The master bedroom is particularly spacious and includes a dressing room and split level en-suite bathroom offering the feel of a luxury hotel. The large family bathroom includes a five-piece suite with both a bath and separate shower cubicle.

Outside, as mentioned there are two garden areas, with an adjoining large paved patio. The gardens can either be left open or gated to separate the two areas. The gardens benefit from a high degree of privacy and include lawned areas, flower and shrub borders, hedging and mature trees. There are so many delightful spaces to spend the time as a family as well as a fantastic space if you like to entertain.

Melbourn is a large English parish village, nestled in the far southwest of Cambridgeshire, just 3 miles from the town of Royston and 11 miles from the city of Cambridge. The village has enjoyed a long history of occupation, stemming from the presence of springs and the River Mel, rising at Melbourn Bury. The river is particularly attractive because it is often clear and shallow, displaying chalk and gravel through its glittering water. There are many countryside walks to enjoy, including several ancient trackways that cross through the parish.

Melbourn is a bustling village, full of life, and offers residents all the amenities they could possibly need, including two village shops, a pharmacy, a doctor's and dentist surgery, two traditional villages pubs, the highly regarded Sheene Mill restaurant and hotel, as well as a spa just opposite. There are a number of parks and endless groups and clubs for all age groups. In terms of schooling, you have a number of pre-school options, a primary and secondary school within the village. There are two churches, including the All Saints' Church, which dates back to the 13th Century and offers regular services and activities for residents.

The village's proximity to Royston means that residents have access to the town's many other amenities, such as the mainline train station offering regular fast services to both Cambridge and London Kings Cross. There is also a leisure centre, sports clubs, dentist's surgeries, and highly-regarded schools for all ages. Also, from Melbourn, you can pick up the train line from the neighbouring village of Meldreth, and this is even within walking distance. The A1M and M11 are within a 20-minute drive via the A10/A505, and London Stansted and Luton Airports are both 30-minutes away.

If you are looking for the benefits of a town while in a countryside location, we recommend visiting Melbourn to find your forever home!
