Property Description

QUOTE GH0600

The property is located just to the north of the village of Haddenham, offers a spacious five-bedroom family home together with excellent equestrian facilities and 22 acres of paddock.

"We were particularly attracted by the quality and quantity of the paddock land," says Oliver, "although we had some work to do to the stable yard, including new guttering and electrics; we added all-round security lighting and an electric gate. We also installed Keepsafe fencing throughout, creating seven paddocks, each with new drainage and a water trough."

"All the buildings have a water supply and we've kept our brood mares together in the largest barn," explains Ros, "which is big enough for an indoor riding school with a storage area; or it could be partitioned. The smaller front barn opposite has two large foaling boxes but could be just stables. The barn behind that has been used for hay storage and for housing our yearlings - there are barn owls nesting there at the moment! To the rear of that there's a dedicated veterinary room with a crush box and hot water, as well as further foaling boxes, which have access to the foaling paddock behind the house."

"In the years we've been here," comments Oliver, "we've completely overhauled the kitchen and utility room, and installed an Aga and a new boiler. We turned the hall from a dark corridor into a light room by taking down the study wall, re-floored the entire house and installed a custom-made marble surround to the open fireplace in the lounge." "The house is very spacious and light," adds Ros, "and with five bedrooms, including one en suite and the opportunity for bedroom six on the second floor, it makes a lovely family home. Outside, there's a patio at the side between the front and back gardens, which are mostly lawn with herbaceous borders and specimen trees - nearly all of the trees have blossom; there's a wisteria and a grapevine, and lots of roses too, so there's colour all times of the year."

"Haddenham has everything," continues Ros, "including a Spa shop, a Post Office, a doctor's surgery and pharmacy, a library, a super butcher's with homemade pies and quiches cooked on the premises, and a fresh fish van on Tuesdays. It also has its own primary school, while Witchford Village College is just up the road. Schools in Ely include the King's School; there's a vast array of good state and private schools in Cambridge." "Ely and Cambridge are both within easy reach," comments Oliver, "and Ely station connects to Cambridge and London. We're close to the A10, and can easily get to the A14, the M11 and the A1." "We're in an ideal location here," Ros and Oliver agree, "with everything to hand - including some good golf courses!"


Situated on the fringe of this sought after village and secluded from the road, this deceptively spacious family home is ideal for the growing family with a keen interest in horses or for the more commercially minded buyer, wanting to take full advantage of the state of the art equestrian facilities which have established New Farm as a well respected stud farm.

The substantial detached family home has been extensively refurbished throughout and has to be viewed to be fully appreciated.

As you arrive outside the property the sweeping driveway with the electric double gates operated by an intercom security system gives very little indication as to what lies beyond. Sweeping round on the gravel driveway to the right leads to the substantial family home whilst bearing to your left leads to the barns, stables and workshops ensuring that any commercial activity can be operated independently and discreetly without causing any interference with daily family life.

As you step out on the gravel driveway you are immediately taken back by the peaceful, tranquil setting and feel as though you are enveloped by the surrounding countryside.

VIEWING ARRANGEMENTS:

By appointment only.  Call or text during or after office hours.

REMOTE VIEWING TOUR:

Traditional property viewings are still vital when it comes to finding the right house. However, making these arrangements can be tricky and complicated, juggling work and home life commitments, or simply finding enough time if moving into a new area and travelling some distance.

Booking a Remote Viewing Tour puts YOU firmly in control. Arrange a day and time that is convenient for you to “look around” and I will arrange for my client to go out and then be at the property at the appointed time to walk you around  the house using WhatsApp or Facetime. The Viewing Tour can be as quick or as long as you like, making sure you have a good look round, focussing on the rooms that are important to you. This will hopefully help you decide to arrange a normal viewing at a later date.
