Design Directory - A very pretty, detached period house.
This beautiful home boasts a charming blend of traditional character and modern living, providing a truly unique living experience. With over three thousand square feet of versatile accommodation, College Farm House really does deliver in terms of spaciousness. Nestled in the heart of the idyllic Cambridgeshire village of Fen Drayton and with no onward chain, this property really does offer potential buyers the ultimate family home.


The house has a great flow to its accommodation with a very airy feel, some unexpectedly high ceilings and beautiful large windows flooding the home with natural light. On the ground floor are three elegant reception rooms, a garden and boot rooms. The star of the show, though, is the very generous farmhouse-style kitchen perfect for entertaining friends and family dinners alike. In addition, there is a large utility and a cloakroom/ downstairs shower room. On the first floor are four substantial double bedrooms, with a generous dressing room and en-suite leading from the master. As well as a single fifth bedroom/ study and a family bathroom completing the accommodation.


Outside, the large rear garden is very private and perfect for gardeners or families with children and pets. The vast amount of storage space continues outside with a large brick-built outbuilding and log store, as well as two patio areas providing lots of space for seating and alfresco dining. To the front of the property is a gated driveway at one end and a double garage at the other, providing even more storage space and parking for numerous vehicles.


For families of school age, within the village, there is a day nursery providing full and part-time care for children aged 0-5 years. Fen Drayton Primary School is within walking distance for children of primary school age. The nearby Swavesey Village College provides secondary education and is rated as ‘Outstanding’ in the latest Ofsted report. The pretty Cambridgeshire village also has its own pub, playground and village hall, and a nearby nature reserve comprising a complex of lakes and traditional riverside meadows.

For commuters, Cambridge City Centre is less than twelve miles away, whilst Huntingdon train station is a short ten-minute drive away, providing rail services into central London in approximately forty-five minutes. In addition, London Stansted Airport is just forty-five minutes away by car.
