This beautiful Victorian home is set in a generous plot of over a third of an acre, with a part-walled west-facing rear garden and views over the church. The property would benefit from some modernisation or extending (subject to planning permission). The spacious accommodation includes five bedrooms, three reception rooms, conservatory and large kitchen breakfast room. Nearby Kimbolton offers exceptional amenities and schooling, while further amenities and excellent transport links can be found in nearby Bedford and St. Neots.

The Gables is a charming and spacious home, in Tilbrook village. Built as the rectory for the parish church in the mid nineteenth century, it has an elegant and impressive fa�ade. It was purchased by the present owner to accommodate a young and growing family, and has been much loved as a happy home for the past fifty years.

The house enjoys a tranquil position next to the church at the end of Church Lane; a cul de sac. With charming views to the church and a short walk into the village, it has a quintessential English country setting.

Tilbrook is a small village which enjoys a busy and friendly community life. It is just over a mile to Kimbolton, with its high street shopping and The Castle that is now part of the prestigious Kimbolton School. For commuter there is a choice of trains into London from St Neots and Huntingdon, whilst the nearby A14 links with major road networks.

The house has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and the family have always used and enjoyed the entire home. The four reception rooms allow for versatile use and gives everyone room to enjoy individual down time when it is needed.

The hub of the home is the kitchen and breakfast room, where the Aga provides a cosy ambience: everyone can settle round the kitchen table for sociable meals whilst staying in chatting distance with the cook. It has always been a very gregarious centre where family and friends naturally gather together.

The living room flows into the conservatory, creating an adaptable and ultra comfortable living area. The living room makes a cosy winter retreat, whilst the conservatory is the perfect place to sit and relish the soft green of the summer garden. With the door from the living room to conservatory open, you create an area which has been very useful for hosting large family gatherings and parties for up to sixty guests. The Gables happily accommodates, and is at its best when full of people.

The five bedrooms have pleasant views to both front and rear gardens, and some windows retain the delicate original Victorian glass and leaded panes. The view from the master bedroom to the church is particularly appealing.

Swathes of lawn and shrubbery make up the superb gardens, where the idyllic atmosphere makes it the place to sit and soak up the quiet rural ambience. Surrounded by fields and with views to the church, this is a truly an oasis of calm.

The Gables has been a most wonderful home, and the owner takes away many very happy memories. He is sure that the next owners will equally love the house and its charming character.
