Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this beautiful period home in the popular village of Ashwell. This property, just a few minutes walk from the village, has the advantage of providing an exceptional amount of space internally and externally, generally not available within the village itself. It enjoys a plot of half an acre which is surrounded by open countryside and stunning views, with a paved walkway to the village centre. The house is situated between the village and station. It has over 3000sq ft of accommodation, comprising 5 reception rooms together with 5 bedrooms, including a master bedroom having a balcony, overlooking the garden and surrounding fields and an en-suite with separate dressing room. The house lies within beautiful gardens, having multiple areas of interest, outbuildings / garden sheds, greenhouse and a detached garage with driveway parking.

This twice-extended, and originally Edwardian, home enjoys stunning kerb appeal, set back from the road behind a 5-bar gate, with a beautiful screened frontage full of trees, hedgerows, flowers and shrubs. There is an extensive driveway offering off-road parking for multiple vehicles, access to a detached garage, and glorious countryside from all angles.

Upon stepping inside, the entrance hallway is wide and welcoming, enjoying carpets, pendant lighting, room for furniture pieces, stairs up to the first floor, and doors through to the entire ground floor living space. A set of stairs also leads down into the converted, fully tanked, basement office, benefiting from a window to the rear, carpets, integrated storage and shelving, inset spotlights and plenty of space for a variety of furniture. Like much of this home, the reception rooms have complete versatility of use dependent on your needs and desires.

The kitchen/breakfast/dining room is a truly magnificent space, benefiting from large windows to the side and centre of the property, floor-to-ceiling windows and double French doors into the rear garden, and stunning panoramic countryside views. The kitchen area enjoys a wide bespoke, hand made, range of base and wall units, Corian worktops and upstands, a large island/breakfast bar, tiled flooring, inset and pendant lighting, integrated storage, pantry, a spiral staircase to the first floor, an integrated oven, hobs, inset hob for wok, microwave / second oven, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, and space for kitchen appliances. The dining area provides space for a large dining table and chairs, and there is further space by the French doors for family room furniture. The utility room is large and benefits from its own range of base units, a Reyburn, tiled flooring, and space for a range of further kitchen appliances. An archway leads through to the boot room, with further integrated storage cupboards, large airing cupboard, a butler sink, and access to the rear garden and to a cloakroom WC.

The sitting room to the front of the property enjoys a lovely relaxing atmosphere, with a large bay window to a front aspect, carpets, integrated shelving, spotlights, and space for a range of furniture. Ornate archway doors lead through to an exquisite music room/library, enjoying double French doors to the garden, and offering a versatile reception space for future owners. The main lounge is equally another beautiful reception space, with a wonderfully calm atmosphere, a fireplace with a wood-burning stove, 2 windows to a dual aspect, plush carpets, pendant lighting, and ample room for a variety of lounge and storage furniture.

Upstairs to the first floor, this extended period home continues to offer unique and incredibly generous accommodation, with a long wide hallway leading to 5 well-proportioned bedrooms, and a large family bathroom comprising a corner bath, a double shower, a WC, a hand wash basin, storage and two heated towel rails / vertical radiators. The master bedroom is an incredible size, benefiting from windows and double French doors to a triple aspect, glorious far-reaching countryside views, wood flooring, pendant lighting, a large balcony with room for seating, a separate dressing room with integrated wardrobes, and a large en-suite, comprising a bath, a corner shower, a WC, a hand wash basin and a heated towel rail / vertical radiator. There are two staircases to the first floor, and the master suite benefits from its own direct spiral staircase access.

Outside, to the rear, the gardens are equally as stunning as the interior of the property, surrounded by countryside, with glorious views and multiple areas of interest. The garden is laid mainly to lawn, with an attractive paved patio space just by the house, offering both shaded and sun-filled areas to place garden furniture, enjoy family meals al fresco and entertain guests. There is a myriad of mature trees filling this wonderful plot, nestled between established borders of plants, flowers and shrubs, which provide colour all year round, together with pond again with its own paved seating area. Moving down towards the bottom of the garden, there are further paved areas to sit, a large fully aquatic plant-stocked pond, a significant vegetable patch with raised beds, fruit trees and walk-in fruit cage, and access to a greenhouse and sheds. Clearly the garden has the potential to support many activities and whilst it is currently established with a part dedicated to home growing, this part could easily be changed to accommodate perhaps a paddock, or swimming pool.

Ashwell is a quintessentially English parish village, nestled in north Hertfordshire, 4 miles from the town of Baldock, 7 miles from the town of Royston and 20 miles from the city of Cambridge. It's situated on the chalk scarp on the spring line, and the springs are one of the sources of the River Cam. Residents and visitors can visit the freshwater springs, which are part of a 0.3-hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest, and enjoy the various opportunities to relax and explore the landscape.

The village has a wealth of well-preserved architecture, spanning several centuries, including St. Mary's Church, dating back to the 14th Century, and the museum, covering all manner of wondrous curiosities relating to the village and its history. There is a thriving community with meetings and activities planned most nights, three pubs, offering a relaxed atmosphere and good food, a dentists surgery, a primary school, a pharmacy, and a variety of shops, galleries and takeaway restaurants.

Ashwell village is also renowned for its peaceful footpath network, perfect for enjoying the countryside, taking long walks with your dog and observing the local wildlife. There are also several successful sports teams for under-12s up to veterans, and many other societies and clubs catering to most interests. The village hall is also available for hire and is well-equipped for a variety of functions.

The village has its own railway station, providing direct links to both Cambridge and London, and the nearby town of Royston also offers further excellent transport links, with a mainline train station offering regular fast services if required. 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.

To truly appreciate what this lovely village has to offer, we invite all potential buyers to visit and explore the local area. You won't be disappointed!
