3 Bed Detached House  For Sale  GREAT GIDDING  Cambridgeshire  PE28  - £800,000

For Sale
Located in the heart of the Cambridgeshire village of Great Gidding, this is a superb family home with equestrian facilities. The main house consists of a kitchen breakfast room, living / dining room, garden room, study / snug, and cloakroom on the ground floor. Upstairs, are three double bedrooms with an en suite shower room to the master, and a family bathroom. A brick-built annexe can be used as an office, extra living accommodation or a holiday let (subject to the necessary consents). There are further outbuildings which include a garage / workshop, twin garages, and a large stable block with tack room, hay barn, Equimat flooring and auto-waterer. The paddock, with manège, measures 2.8 acres, whilst the whole plot enjoys a total of 3.4 acres.

Great Gidding is situated to the North West of Huntingdon, with an eat-in pub, village store and Ofsted-rated 'Good' primary school. Sawtry is a short drive away offering further facilities including a GP, infant school and Sawtry Village Academy providing Ofsted-rated 'Good' state schooling. The independent Oundle School is around 8 miles to the West, whilst the renowned Kimbolton School is around 12 miles South. Great Gidding offers road links to the A1 and A14, with Cambridge and Peterborough to the South and North respectively, whilst Huntingdon rail station offers fast links to London Kings Cross.

The small village of Great Gidding lies approximately 10-miles North West of Huntingdon in beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside. It's a great location for enjoying rural life whilst being a commutable distance from many urban hubs. 50 Main Street, a classic red brick house built in 1910, is a well-equipped equestrian property which makes keeping horses a convenient affair. After an extensive search for a place which met all their requirements, the current owners have enjoyed eight years here; 'we wanted to live in a village with a traditional country vibe and an easy commute to Kimbolton for work and, most crucially, we wanted a plot which could house us and the horses - the stables are so close to the back door that you can pop out in your slippers to check on them! The garden is dog-proofed too.'

"The central village property, which has extensive facilities and space, really does have it all. It's worth noting that the closest equestrian competition centres are The College Equestrian centre at Keysoe and Arena UK at Grantham. Equestrian events are held at Home Farm, Alconbury, which is just up the road. There are loads of bridleways, footpaths and byways in this area to enjoy as well."

"Great Gidding, a friendly village, hosts a pub, shop and primary school. Cambridge, Oundle, Stamford, Huntingdon and Peterborough are all within reach. Access to the A1(M) and A14 is good, and both are currently undergoing an upgrade. Huntingdon railway station is 15-20 minutes away and has direct lines to London Kings Cross taking around 45 minutes."

'The house has lots of big windows and is very light, giving the feeling of living close to nature. The best thing though, is that we can see the horses from the kitchen window. The garden and orchard offer lots of lovely places to sit, relax, and look out over the countryside. The overall set-up is fantastic. There is also potential for the landing to be re-instated as a fourth bedroom, so it is very adaptable to our needs.'

'The large sitting room with log burner is a favourite, especially at Christmas as it's large enough for a big tree and plenty of room for family, dogs, un-wrapping presents and general festive chaos! The conservatory comes off the sitting room and the two spaces work really well together.'

'We love the view from the master bedroom as it looks out onto the field - it's ideal for checking on the horses first thing in the morning. The area is very beautiful with lots of space to explore and enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of life.'

'We had an excellent party for friends, family and neighbours, to celebrate William and Kate's wedding, with bunting in the trees, and Pimms and rounders in the orchard. Many of us wore wedding dresses - it was so much fun!'

'We'll miss the whole set-up and convenience of having everything we need for our horses right on the doorstep. We are relocating for work.'
