Description

Beechwood House is a magnificent period home dating back to the late eighteen hundreds providing a wonderful example of spacious Victorian grandeur. Peacefully situated on the fringe of the picturesque village of Fulbourn, it is conveniently located just five miles from the historic City of Cambridge and less than an hour from the heart of London.

The property has recently undergone a substantial facelift, and whilst retaining many of its original features it has been carefully and tastefully extended, creating a traditional atmosphere blended with the comfort of modern day living.

The bright and airy interior opens out into the most beautifully established and traditional English garden which backs onto open countryside, providing an oasis of unrushed tranquillity and seclusion.

Accommodation details:

The walled driveway provides ample parking for several cars and has a covered arched shelter for bicycles. The main entrance to Beechwood House opens into a reception

The bright and airy interior opens out into the most beautifully established and traditional English garden which backs onto open countryside, providing an oasis of unrushed tranquillity and seclusion.

Accommodation details:

The walled driveway provides ample parking for several cars and has a covered arched shelter for bicycles. The main entrance to Beechwood House opens into a reception hall with guest cloakroom, which runs through the centre of the property. To the left of the reception hall is a large modern kitchen with a central granite-top work island along with all required accessories, plus a pantry and utility room.

Leading on from the open plan kitchen is a large combined living and dining room with flagstone floor (under-floor heating) and large glazed front which opens out into the garden and provides a wonderfully bright and airy aspect.

To the side of the dining room is an additional reception room with a high glazed ceiling, which also leads out into the garden and has a second cloakroom with shower/wet-room.

The westerly side of the entrance hall opens into the very large sitting room which has an open fire and half-moon bay window looking out over the garden. There is also a small conservatory and the main room has midway dividing doors should a more cosy atmosphere be sought.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and an additional shower room. Four of the bedrooms have double beds and one has twin singles, comfortably sleeping 10 people in total.

Outside: Set in over an acre of established grounds and beautiful garden, including a small pond, the south facing rear of Beechwood House has been designed to maximise the stunning views across lush lawns and colourful borders. Opening out on to a spacious terrace with barbecue and seating area, al fresco dining is an absolute delight at certain times of the year.

For the more energetic guests, there is badminton, a croquet set and four bicycles at guests' disposal. Along the Easterly border of the garden is the 'pool house' with the private heated indoor swimming pool. The swimming pool is 8m x4m in dimension and the depth is 1m at the shallow end and 2m at the deep end with integral roman steps and is heated all year round.

Our standard cleaning service is full preparation for your arrival and a change of bed linen and light clean weekly thereafter. We are happy to arrange a more frequent service if required as follows:

• Extra cleaning at £15 per hour

• Change of all bed linen & towels at £15 per room

A unique opportunity to rent and experience one of Cambridge's finest traditional landmark properties.

Location description from owner

The Cambridgeshire region

Within the local south Cambridgeshire area, there are many leisure opportunities, among them countryside walks, cycling, golf, tennis and other social sports, gym or fitness classes and swimming.

Also family-friendly attractions and activities such as Linton Zoo, Wimpole Hall & Home Farm, Duxford Imperial War Museum, Fowlmere nature reserve. The nearby market towns of Saffron Walden, Bury St Edmunds, Ely and St Ives are all well worth a visit to soak up their history and beauty.

Fulbourn

Just a short drive or bus ride away, Cambridge has a beautifully preserved city centre including the world renowned University college buildings, perhaps the most famous of which is Kings' College from whose magnificent Chapel the Christmas Eve carol service is broadcast each year.

Historically an important market town, there is still a daily market selling produce and everyday items as well as souvenirs, and quality crafts at the weekend. There are, of course, many familiar high street stores and designer names but also a choice of independent boutiques and gift shops to browse. Also a cultural centre, with theatres, art galleries, museums and cinemas.
