Available for the first time in over a quarter of a century, this fabulous family home offers an incredible blend of character features and modern contemporary additions. Set in an enviable location, an area of outstanding landscape, with very easy access to the A1 and A14, St Neots market town with high speed rail access to London and Peterborough, and the nationally regarded Kimbolton school. As well as all of this there is access to many country walks with Grafham Water close at hand for watersports enthusiasts.

The home itself is believed to be a former pub and brew house which has been transformed by the current owners and now benefits from air source heat pumps, solar panels, heated swimming pool and luxury bespoke kitchen. There are five double bedrooms, four generous reception rooms, dine in kitchen, and four bathrooms.
Outside is a plot of approximately half an acre of beautifully maintained gardens with several outbuildings. One of the barns has planning permission granted to convert into a studio with mezzanine and work is underway.

"It was the beautiful location of The Old Crown which first drew us to the property," say the current owners of this fantastic family home, "with outstanding views of the surrounding countryside. We fell in love with the cottage itself right away too, in all its charm and unique character."
Believed to be a former pub and brew house, The Old Crown has benefited from much care and attention from the current owners to make it into the stunning home it is today. "We have retained many original features whilst creating a comfortable contemporary dwelling, " they say. "We wanted to stay true to the personality of the building, yet to make the most of modern technology such as air source heat pumps and solar panels to make the property more efficient and eco friendly. We also added a heated swimming pool and installed a luxury bespoke kitchen, which is now the hub of the home. In the warmer months, we enjoy a summer kitchen with bi fold doors opening out onto the patio, so we can enjoy cooking and dining al fresco."
"Outside, we have put a lot of love into the garden too," continue the owners, "which is enjoyed not only by us but also by the many varieties of bird which visit us here. At more than half an acre, the garden is surrounded by fields on three sides. We have two greenhouses and a vegetable garden outside the back door, so can literally taste the satisfaction of growing our own produce and eating it fresh from the garden.. One of the barns has planning permission to be converted into a studio and mezzanine, increasing the versatility of the property even further."
Set in an enviable semi rural location, the property enjoys the best of both worlds, surrounded by natural beauty yet within easy reach of amenities and transport networks. "There is a Budgens store in Kimbolton just a few miles away for everyday necessities," say the owners, "while St Neots and Huntingdon are both around 15 minutes away for a wider range of shops and supermarkets, and mainline railway stations for London and Peterborough. We can walk along footpaths to a pub in either direction, or to the doctor's surgery or Post Office. Country walks abound right from our doorstep here, with Grafham Waters also close at hand for water sports enthusiasts."
