A Stunning, detached, three-bedroom, part thatched-part pantile farmhouse, with additional annexed accommodation, stabling for at least three horses, and three and a half acres of grounds, set on the edge of the pretty Bedfordshire village of Colmworth.


This wonderful, grade II-listed home will appeal to all sorts of buyers. It would suit a family looking for a quiet life with lots of space around them. It would also suit a multi-generational family looking for annexed accommodation or a buyer looking to derive a rental income from the two beautifully finished en-suite annexed bedrooms. Arguably though, this property will be best suited to a buyer who has always wanted to have their horses at home. With timber-clad, block-built stabling for at least three horses, a tack room, a hay barn, a gated yard and additional outbuildings, all on a 3.5-acre plot, Channels End Farm makes a lovely equestrian home.


Inside the main house are three double bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms on the first floor, three reception rooms, and an open-plan farmhouse kitchen on the ground floor. The kitchen has been delightfully extended to provide a beautiful oak and glass family room, which floods the whole space with natural light. There are many characterful features throughout the property, such as the pamment tiled floors, the lovely, honey-coloured oak beams, the vaulted ceiling in the lounge and the inglenook fireplace, to name just a few. Happily, and somewhat unusually for a property of this age and character, with the exception of the odd doorway, there are no real head height restrictions.


The location of Channels End Farm is absolutely perfect. Set just on the edge of Colmworth village, with the local gastro pub and village school both within easy reach, the house is set well back from Channels End Road and looks like a picture postcard. Bedford and St. Neots are a short drive away, offering plenty of amenities, schools and a commute to London by train in around forty-five minutes. In addition, the highly regarded Kimbolton School is just nine miles away, and Keysoe International Equestrian Centre is five miles away.
