Property description

A Grade II listed 17th century three bedroom former milking parlour with a detached double garage, in a gated development of just four barns in a conservation area adjacent to Colmworth village church.

The conversion was completed in December 2013 so the property is still covered by the NHBC guarantee. It is brick under tile with original Tudor beams at both ends. The exterior was repainted last September and the interior, with Farrow and Ball paint, in the last 18 months. There is double glazing and oil fired heating with underfloor heating on the ground floor and radiators on the first floor. High specification features include bespoke wood windows, European oak floors, oak skirting and oak Z doors with latch handles and wrought iron hinges. There is a new alarm system and a bespoke glass front door. Accommodation includes a sitting room, kitchen/dining room, utility room, two bedrooms, an en suite bathroom and a shower room on the ground floor. The master bedroom and en suite are on the first floor. The development has electric gates, CCTV, a newly laid Resin entrance and gravel parking. £450 per annum is payable to a management company for maintenance of communal areas.

Kitchen/Dining Room and Utility Room

The kitchen/dining room has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, and bespoke cantilevered stairs to the first floor. It has a range of bespoke solid wood units with black granite work surfaces incorporating a Frankie double butler sink. Rangemaster appliances include a range cooker, a wine cooler and an American style fridge freezer and there is a Bosch dishwasher. The adjoining utility room has matching units, a butler sink and space and plumbing for appliances.

Sitting Room

The triple aspect sitting room has a glazed door to the garden, and a vaulted ceiling with original exposed A frame beams. A feature fireplace with a timber surround houses a Jotul log burning stove.


The garden was professionally designed by a Chelsea gold medallist and has a gothic style Oak arbour rail with a Rambling Rector rose, established low maintenance beds, paved seating areas, and a Shepherd’s hut. There is an automated watering system and zoned garden lights. The double garage has electric doors, a boarded loft accessed via a telescopic ladder, and the wiring has been upgraded for an electric car charger to be installed if needed.

Situation and Schooling

The rural village of Colmworth has a village hall, a playing field and children’s play area, numerous public footpaths, its own country park and a golf course. It is between Bedford and St. Neots, which both have a wide range of amenities including rail services for commuters. The A1 is about 4.5 miles away and provides a trunk road to the north and south of the country. There is a choice of private schooling in the area, notably the Harpur Trust schools in Bedford and the nearby co-educational Kimbolton School.
