Gamlingay - Sandy
A Spacious Detached Character Cottage With Annexe & Excellent Equestrian Facilities
6.73 ACRES (stms) - Situated in a semi rural location on the edge of Gamlingay village, this surprisingly spacious detached property is ready to move straight into and enjoys a quiet position off a private road, just off the B1040 which leads to Biggleswade where you find the A1. Heading north, the B1040 joins the A428 to Cambridge, making this an ideal location for commuting. The property benefits from a self-contained annexe and has private equestrian facilities that could, subject to planning approval, be suitable for running a livery yard.
The versatile accommodation is approximately 2,038 sq ft and provides comfortable family living. The main entrance door opens to a utility room having a cloakroom to the rear and a door into the extensive, dual aspect kitchen/dining/family room fitted and a range of oak base, eye level and larder style units, plus a central island, all with granite worksurface over, to include built-in appliances and the range style cooker (the American style fridge is not included in the sale, however there will be space left to accommodate similar). French doors lead to the rear terrace and a further door opens into the large 19’ lounge, triple aspect with French doors to the rear terrace, fireplace with inset log burner and stairs off rising to the first floor where there are four double bedrooms, principal bedroom having en-suite shower room and the luxury family bathroom with spa bath and large shower cubicle.
Adjacent to the house across the private courtyard driveway is a detached self-contained annexe comprising a kitchen, studio style lounge/bedroom and a shower room.
The property is approached off the private road via recently installed, electrically operated twin metal gates which open to a private courtyard style parking and turning area for numerous vehicles. There is ample space for the erection of garaging subject to planning approval and access to the house and annexe. To the front of the house is a small area of garden and to the side is a lawned area leading to the huge lawn at the rear, fenced for dogs and has a paved terrace to the rear of the house. To the far end of the garden is a timber outbuilding which was previously two stables and this building has a separate gated entrance of the private road. To the side and rear of the annexe, a pathway leads to the equestrian facilities.
Secure twin wrought iron gates open to a concrete driveway providing access the stables which comprise, block one, six timber built stables in an ‘L’ shape around a concrete courtyard, power, light and water connected, leading round to block two, four timber built stables also with power and light plus block three, 3 more timber stables.
