4 Bed Detached House  For Sale  HEYDON  Hertfordshire  SG8   - £650,000

For Sale
The Bargate is a charming character home in an exclusive cul-de-sac of just three properties located in the desirable village of Heydon, with excellent transport links to Cambridge and Royston. This well-presented detached barn conversion has four well-appointed bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms and a light kitchen breakfast room. The rear garden is well-presented and offers views across the rolling South Cambridgeshire countryside. There is a double garage, as well as off-street parking for a further three cars, and this property can be offered with no forward chain.

Originally converted from a farm building in 1987, this attractive home sits in a rural development of three exclusive properties between Royston and Saffron Walden, on the edge of the village of Heydon. Current owner Maggie tells us why it's such a lovely place to live: "Unlike the generally flat landscape of Cambridgeshire, this area features rolling hills and hidden valleys. Wildlife is in abundance and it's not unusual to wake up to a pheasant or quail roaming the lawn - the garden is regularly visited by woodpeckers and larger birds too. The village is very friendly with a good variety of welcoming social groups."

"The Bargate is a lovely light house with high ceilings in the main rooms, giving a bright and airy feel. The unusual layout has proved to be fantastic for family living and for socialising, with the sleeping area away from the main living rooms - perfect for grown-up dinner parties while the children are in bed."

Heydon and nearby Crishall and Great Chishill all have excellent pubs, there's a shop in Barley, a five-minute drive by car, and a good choice of schools within easy reach. The market town of Saffron Walden is about 20-minutes away and hosts a variety of independent shops, larger supermarkets and an excellent arts venue hosting international standard concerts. "We have the best of both worlds living here - it's quiet where we live, but offers train links from Royston to Kings Cross, and Audley End to Liverpool Street. Cambridge is an easy 20-minute commute and the M11 only 10-minutues from the door giving easy access to Stansted airport."

"The house itself is not visible from the road which adds to its already great sense of privacy. The garden is easy to maintain with a large raised patio area and a lower part overlooking a secluded valley, from here there are wonderful views towards Duxford Imperial War Museum."

"My favourite room is the dining room which has been the venue for so many happy events. It's high ceilinged and decorated to feel intimate and welcoming. As a close second, there is a hidden-away room above the kitchen, a wonderful den for children."

"The garden is very private with a moderate amount of land and wonderful views across the valley - it's totally unspoilt and can never be built on."

"The Red Arrows make an annual visit to Duxford Air Show and usually use the valley to fly down to make their spectacular first appearance - this is amazing to see."

"I will miss everything about this house, however I've just married and will be moving to nearby Great Chishill to another fantastic house - I'm delighted to be staying in the area."
