PROPERTY INSIGHT
Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this truly unique and rare property in the highly sought after village of Bassingbourn. This beautiful former Mill dates back to the Doomsday Book with this particular part dating to around 1850, enjoying almost 2500sq ft of versatile living accommodation and boasting a wealth of spectacular benefits, including 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, period features, a detached garage, carport, and cellar, all set within approx. 1.5 acres of stunning countryside. It’s also important to mention that Bassingbourn Mill offers a lovely view of the inner Mill workings, where a brook from a spring approx. 2 miles away runs through the centre of the property. Thanks to the Mill Wall, owners never have to worry about the brook rising and flooding.

On approach, this wonderful home enjoys a stunning frontage, completely different to other properties currently on the market. There are wide front and rear driveways, with large gravel areas with space for several vehicles. To the front, the garden area is fully enclosed by hedgerows, brick walls, flower borders and mature trees, and there are tall brick steps leading up to the front door, as well as a door through to a large cellar. From the cellar, there is access through to view the inner workings of the Mill - truly a magnificent feature that is almost impossible to find on the market today.

Once inside, the entrance hallway is long and wide, with space for furniture, original wood flooring, and access through to the entire ground floor accommodation. There is a study room with two windows to a front aspect which also offers the option to be a 4th bedroom, and the hallway opens up into a beautiful sitting room with vaulted ceilings, exposed original beams, roof light windows, neutral decor, stairs to the first floor, double French doors to the rear, beautiful river and garden views, and copious amounts of space for a variety of living and dining furniture.

The kitchen equally is a lovely space with exposed beams and wooden flooring, and is decorated beautifully in keeping with the period features of the property. There is a range of base and wall units, black worktops, a stunning Aga, integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave, fitted shelving, and space for a dining table.

Upstairs to the first floor, Bassingbourn Mill opens up into a spectacular open and versatile drawing room, which future owners could use for a wide variety of reasons, such as study area, library, office space, gallery or music room. With stunning views out into the rear garden and across the river, as well as the large fireplace to one end, the drawing room offers a lovely place to sit and relax amongst the period features and character of this 1850s home. Double French doors open out onto a large balcony, offering the perfect area to enjoy the late evening sun and entertain guests on a summer’s eve.

Adjacent to the sitting room, an inner hallway offers doors through to the sleeping quarters of the property. There are many large integrated storage cupboards and doors leading to 3 large bedrooms and a family bathroom comprising a bath with overhead shower, a WC and hand wash basin. The master bedroom is particularly large, enjoying a wall of integrated wardrobes and a beautifully decorated en-suite, comprising a bath with shower attachment, WC and hand wash basin with a large vanity unit.

Overall, the property is an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase and is set within 1.5 acres of stunning countryside with the brook running through. The rear garden is expansive, with beautifully maintained lawns, a myriad of trees, flower borders, climbing plants and shrubs, and paved walkways on either side of the brook, leading down to the very bottom of the garden. There is access through to a large detached garage, carport and storage shed, with an attractive clock spire sitting atop its pitched roof.

Location - Bassingbourn
If you’re on the lookout for a home in a beautiful, countryside location, we encourage you to visit Bassingbourn. It’s not one you want to miss!

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 Bassingbourn, you can pick up the train line from the neighbouring village of Meldreth. 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.

The Church of St Peter and St Paul is a stunning building with a rich history - older than the Church of England itself - and is pleasantly situated near the centre of the village, in an excellent rural setting among trees and hedges. There is a busy service schedule and many activities for residents of all ages to attend.

The village has a number of facilities and shops, including a doctor’s surgery, a dental surgery, a garage, sub-Post Office, coffee shop, chemist, hairdressers and general grocers. It also has two remaining pubs: The Hoops, occupying a 17th-century building in the village, and The Belle (formerly the Pear Tree) at North End. On the edge of the village, you will find located Bassingbourn Village College, Bassingbourn Community Primary School and Bassingbourn Pre-school, providing a continuation of education from the age of 2 1/2 up to school leaving age.

Bassingbourn is a pretty parish village, located in South Cambridgeshire, a couple of miles north of the town of Royston and just 14 miles from the city of Cambridge. The village is fortunate to have a network of 24 public rights of way extending over 13 miles, and another 1 mile of permissive paths, where landowners give permission for the public to walk. The network of paths gives ample opportunities for circular walks, and footpaths also link the parish with Whaddon, Melbourn, Litlington and Abington Pigotts.
