'Middle Farm House' is a stunning period home believed to date to circa 1750 sitting on a third of an acre. This a wonderful example of a farm house from the Georgian period, with over 3000sq ft of accommodation, requires some updating and modernisation but is very well priced to reflect. This 5 bedroom detached home is a rarely available and is sold with the advantage of no upward chain.
Situated on the edge of the village and set back from the main road with gated access, you are just 5 minutes' walk to the village centre and also on the direct road to Royston and within 5 minutes' drive of the train station to London Kings Cross. On approach you will find generous frontage, surrounded by high level walls and mature trees, providing driveway parking. The driveway continues around the side and to the rear of the property, providing yet more parking and leading to a double garage.
On entering the property you can't help but feel a great sense of space, with high ceilings and large sash windows both allowing light to flood through the property. You have four reception rooms on the ground floor. To the front, off the generous entrance hall, you have the living room and drawing room, two large reception rooms of similar proportions and both featuring delightful period open fireplaces. Heading to the rear you have a large formal dining room, with yet another open fireplace, that then leads to a large kitchen/breakfast room with double doors opening to the rear garden and a walk in pantry. Also on the ground floor you have an office and cloakroom facilities.
Going to the first floor this home continues to impress. Off the landing you have five double bedrooms, three particularly generous and two slightly smaller doubles. Rooms feature period fireplaces, the master has a generous en-suite with four piece suite and finally you have a family bathroom with separate w.c. Completing the internal space in this stunning home is a large cellar, currently used just for storage, but could be made more use of if you wished and fully tanked the space.
Going outside this home just gets better and better. As mentioned, the plot is in the region of a third of an acre, and the rear gardens are therefore extremely generous and give the potential for further extension if desired or perhaps the erection of an outbuilding or two. The gardens are very private with mature trees and hedging surrounding and are mainly laid to lawn. A stream runs to the rear of the property and is a delightful feature, but if you have young children you could easily fence off this area for peace of mind.
This property offers fantastic potential for updating and further improvement. Valued in current condition and it is of our opinion that significant value can be added with investment if you wished, but certainly not necessary. Rarely do such homes come to the market, so call today to arrange your private viewing time and so not to miss out.
