For Sale
Honeysuckle cottage is a charming detached family home located in the popular village of Great Staughton. Offering very easy access to the town of St Neots, which has high speed rail links to London and Peterborough, as well as the A1 and A14 road links to Cambridge.

Great Staughton has a thriving community and there are two very popular pubs as well as an array of retail outlets, bus service and centrally located for several good local schools and the Kimbolton Academy.
For the more adventurous there are some fabulous country walks and Grafham Waters offer various watersports and pursuits.

The cottage is grade II listed but was almost completely rebuilt in the 1960s and has been extended by the current owners. It has been modernised to offer a very tasteful blend of character features and contemporary finishes. The beautifully maintained rear garden is peaceful and private. There is an abundance of parking as well as a generous double garage.

This property can be offered with no ongoing chain if required.

"Set back from the road in its own personal space, Honeysuckle Cottage is a characterful home just waiting to be discovered. It was 1990 when we first viewed the property and as we walked down the drive to be met by this sight of this fabulous cottage, it was the lovely features, combined with the sense of privacy, that really sold it to us," recalls the current owner.

"The location is ideal too. Great Staughton is a friendly village with brilliant local amenities, including some small shops, a butcher, a busy village hall and a recreation ground with a cricket club and tennis courts. The transport links are excellent as it's just a short drive to the rail station in St Neots from where I can be in London in under an hour. Grafham Water is just down the road and it is a lovely natural space where I can walk and cycle around the water or even sail and windsurf on the lake. I love the benefits of living in the countryside, yet everything is still easily accessible, including theatres and other cultural activities in Cambridge."

"The garden is very private and peaceful, and it was another big attraction for me. It's an absolute sun trap with sheltered areas to provide respite from the heat when required and we enjoy sitting on the sunny patio which is surrounded by the grapevine. The pond is a natural attraction for wildlife, including a stunning kingfisher and I'll never tire of the sight of the red kites and buzzards soaring overhead."

"We've made a number of enhancements during my time in Honeysuckle Cottage, including the addition of the large extension to the kitchen which leads into the orangery. It is a lovely space with doors leading to the garden which makes it ideal for everyday life and entertaining. There is plenty of parking available and we've celebrated numerous birthday parties and informal gatherings with ease alongside my friends and family. I tend to spend most of my time in this room as it enjoys beautiful views over the garden, but you can't beat snuggling up in the sitting room in front of the fire on a cold winter evening."

"We've loved living here in the countryside, so I'm sad to be moving on. There are lots of facilities available within a relatively short distance, yet it is also very peaceful and quiet. Honeysuckle Cottage is absolutely perfect for a family who want to experience life in the countryside with great access to local amenities."
