Elm Trees, Green End, Little Staughton
Village life in Little Staughton is great. The fantastic Crown pub is popular with locals and there are countryside walks right on your doorstep. Top End Farm has a shop selling local produce and anything else you might need, including newspapers. Its a peaceful, rural location and because residents love it so much they tend to stay, so theres a strong community feeling.
Elm Trees is ideally positioned in the village on a quiet road and backing onto fields. The busy market town of St Neots is just a ten-minute drive away, and nearby Kimbolton offers useful shops, a friendly doctors surgery and dentist.
A wide gravelled driveway lies to the front of the bungalow, where theres enough room for several vehicles and where the current owners are able to easily store their motor caravan. Mature trees, shrubs and hedgerow plants make the entrance private and attractive.
Inside, Elm Trees is bright and spacious. The main room in the house is the large living room with its stunning views over the beautiful back garden. A multi-fuel burner stands ready to warm you up in colder months and during the summer a door opens straight out onto a patio area which is screened by a pretty trellis.
Leading off from the living room is a further family room which could easily be used as bedroom four or a study or playroom.
The hallway leading to the other rooms in the house has loads of useful storage cupboards, perfect for storing coats and boots after enjoying local country walks, and a practical wood-effect laminate floor.
In the kitchen/dining-room there are more lingering views over the long back garden and up to the fields beyond. When the doors are open you can just catch the sound of trickling water in the pond, and birdsong. There are frequent wildlife visitors to the garden at Elm Trees, including a variety of birds, small deer - even badgers have been known to pass through.
The kitchen itself is modern with soft cream colour shaker style units, built-in appliances and an electric, ceramic hob. The bright dining area overlooks the garden and also has french doors onto the sheltered patio area.
The main bedroom is also bathed in light from the floor-to-ceiling patio windows at one end and has a door leading to the rear garden. Its a really great size and benefits from a smart en-suite shower room. The two further bedrooms, one single with built-in wardrobe space and the other double, sit to the front of the building and enjoy private views onto the front garden. The large family bathroom has a combined bath/shower and tile-effect flooring.
A purpose-built garage adjoins the main building providing essential storage for gardening equipment and maintenance tools, and is wide enough to house a vehicle too.
Outside, Elm Trees is settled into a beautifully planned and cared-for garden with mature specimen trees, colourful shrubs and a view to the fields. Filled with blossom and flowers in spring, shady in summer and brimming with colour in autumn, you could meander around it for hours or just sit, enjoying the gentle rustle of leaves in the wind, the sound of water splashing into the ornamental pond, and the complete sense of privacy.
