With open country views to the front and a generous 0.66 of an acre including two kennel blocks comprising 18 kennels. This substantial home has been refurbished throughout which includes three reception rooms, kitchen breakfast room with utility and a conservatory. The four double bedrooms are well-served by a family bathroom and en suite to the master. Outside there is ample parking, a double garage, detached studio/gym. Offered with no forward chain.

Ramsey St Marys has The Lion pub, convenience store, and Church. There is a comprehensive range of amenities in Ramsey including pubs, restaurants, cafes, a butchers, bakery, florists, hairdressers, supermarkets, post office, banks, library, dentist, doctors, pharmacy and Churches. Sports facilities include One Leisure Centre, Ramsey Golf Club, Cricket Club, and Football Club. It boasts the historical National Trust Ramsey Abbey, Gatehouse Walled Kitchen Garden, Rural Museum with tea room, the Fenland Light Miniature Railway, and Great Fen National Nature Reserve. It is the catchment area for the highly-regarded Abbey College. Huntingdon town is 20 minutes away, offering trains into London Kings Cross from 50 minutes, whilst Cambridge is accessible by car in 45 minutes.

This house truly stands apart say the current owners of Ankers Lodge, not just in situation but also in its elegant finish and of course the stunning countryside views it affords. It is extremely private and peaceful, sitting on its own amidst generous gardens.

With open country views and more than half an acre of land this substantial home has been refurbished throughout. We have recently had the house totally redecorated in a neutral, modern scheme, with new carpets, kitchen units and bathrooms, and air conditioning downstairs and in the gym say the owners. It is ready for a new owner to move straight in. Living accommodation includes three reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast bar with utility and a conservatory. There are four large double bedrooms, one of which en suite, and a family bathroom. All rooms are spacious, with a good sized gym/home office and a double garage too. We have also built kennels to house 18 dogs complete with electricity and sustainable weatherproof plastic cladding say the owners.

The garden is secluded and quiet, with trees all the way around the perimeter the owners continue. There are pretty rose bushes along one side in the rear garden, as well as oak trees around the edge of the lawn. It is a sunny garden, so we often sit outside in summer and enjoy the views.

The local area has much to offer in both beauty and convenience. The village is charming but has everything you might need say the owners. There is a comprehensive range of shops in Ramsey (5 mins), including Tesco, building society, baker, butcher, chemist and doctor, with a village post office and shop just around the corner from Ankers Lodge. There is a fantastic pub/restaurant not far away in Holme. The location is rural yet easily accessible for commuters. Peterborough and Huntingdon are just 15 minutes away, and Cambridge just 40 minutes distant. There is also easy access to London and the A1, and it is just 20 minutes to the beautiful town of Stamford.

I love the fact that one can see the riverbank from the living room. You can just sit here by the window and see for miles across the fields.

We liked the house for its privacy and stunning field-surrounded setting.

We will miss the beautiful views and the convenience of local amenities.

There are so many wonderful routes to walk the dogs, whether along the riverbank or through the fields opposite the house.
