The property

30 Shepreth Road is a stunning, modern village home constructed to a bespoke and unique design. The beautifully finished and stylish accommodation extends to over 3,200sqft and is imaginatively laid out over three floors. It is based on an open plan design to the main living areas balanced perfectly with separate and versatile reception rooms. The emphasis is on the views to the rear and practical easy living along with huge levels of natural light and a feeling of space. Every care has been taken to maximise the position and outlook along with superb finishes. The accommodation flows beautifully throughout with many glazed doors leading to the outside, several Juliet balconies and large picture windows from which to appreciate the idyllic setting. Open tread staircases with glass balustrades separate each floor which again accentuates the light and airy feel to the house.

On the ground floor there is a beautiful fully fitted kitchen with breakfast bar, excellent range of laminate fronted walk and base units, Neff appliances, water softener and boiling tap fridge and freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen is open plan to the dining space with a feature wall partially separately this space from the family room with freestanding wood burner. There are also two further reception rooms and a cloakroom. On the first floor is a wonderful vaulted landing with a window seat opening to the four vaulted double bedrooms and family bathroom. The impressive master suite offers a dressing room and stunning en-suite bathroom, complete with roll-top bath and walk-in shower. On the lower ground floor, the accommodation has been cleverly designed to cover a number of uses including a guest suite, TV/teenager room or games room etc. There is a shower room, wine cellar and a laundry/utility room with useful door to the garden.

Houses of this exceptional calibre, unrivalled build quality, inspirational design and outstanding attention to detail are rarely seen coming to the market. The property has to be seen to the fully appreciated.

Outside

The property is approached over a gravelled driveway which winds its way through mature trees and opening out to ample parking and the detached garage (with power) with automated roll-up garage door, pedestrian door to the side and additional workshop space. The gardens are thoughtfully landscaped to take full advantage of the site with rolling lawns and attractive shrub and tree planting. Pebbled paths lead round the side of the house. The outside space offers excellent levels of privacy with terraces on two levels that catch the sun at different times of day and are ideal for al-fresco dining and entertaining. There is a summer house to one side of the garden which would make a great home office/gym/studio. The house sits perfectly in its large, secluded plot with the most wonderful views to the rear over adjacent farmland to the rolling hills beyond.

Location

Barrington is the quintessential English village with, reputedly, the biggest village green in the country. The high street runs through the middle of the green and is flanked by a wealth of delightful period homes and cottages. Within the village itself is a popular and well-frequented public house, an excellent village store with post office and an excellent primary school. Secondary schooling is available at Melbourn Vilage College or the many private schools in Cambridge, some 8 miles away. Further and more varied amenities are available in nearby Melbourn, Haslingfield and Harston. For the commuter there are railway stations in neighbouring Shepreth and Foxton (both within cycling distance). The market town of Royston (only 6 miles) offers further shopping as well as a railway station offering a non-stop regular rail service into London Kings Cross. The location also has very good access to major road networks including the M11, A1 and Stansted Airport.
