A Grade II listed four double bedroom detached cottage in well maintained gardens of approximately 0.51 acres on the edge of the village.
The property was formerly known as School Farm and originally dates from the 17th century with later extensions in the 20th century. It is of timber framed construction with pebble dash elevations under a thatched and tiled roof. The later extension created a sitting room and an en suite bedroom as well as a barn/workshop which could be adapted for use as a games room or home office, or to create a self contained annexe. Also on the ground floor are two further reception rooms, including a dining room, a bespoke farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with Rayburn cooker, and a separate utility room. All the bedrooms are double rooms and the master and bedroom three have en suite bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms are situated on the first floor and the guest bedroom with its en suite is in the extension on the ground floor. Remotely operated gates lead to a sweeping driveway which provides parking for approximately six cars, as well as access to the two car garage.
Family/Dining Room and Snug
The family/dining room has character features including exposed beams and timbers and an inglenook fireplace with an inset log burning stove. A central staircase with beamed balustrades divides the two areas and dual aspect windows give views of both the garden and rear courtyard. An opening leads to the snug which also has an inglenook fireplace with a stove powered by Calor Gas.
The gardens are a particular feature and were once moated. The remains of the moat now forms two natural ponds. The gardens are enclosed by mature hedgerow and fencing and are principally lawned with well stocked borders and a variety of trees including fruit trees. There is a timber storage shed and a greenhouse. A private courtyard has inset defined borders, mature trees, plants and bushes and a water feature.
Colmworth is between Bedford and St. Neots, both offering rail services. The A1 is approximately 3.5 miles to the east of the village and provides a trunk road to the north and south of the country. There is also a choice of private schooling in the area, notably the Harpur Trust schools in Bedford and the nearby co-educational Kimbolton School.
Remotely operated gates lead to a sweeping driveway which provides parking for approximately six cars, as well as access to the two car garage which has two remotely operated up and over doors, power connected and eaves space.
