In an exclusive development of just eight converted barns The Dovecote stands tall – quite literally. From the gravelled courtyard parking area its brick-built tower and cavernous arched porch is the main focal point. As you enter the house through the huge glazed door the bright hallway and galleried stairway lead the eye up all the way to the tall third floor level, giving an amazing sense of height and space.

Underfoot, the Karndean wood-effect flooring warmed by underfloor heating leads easily into the double-height living area where the comfy sofa area, dining area and open plan kitchen blend together below an open mezzanine level. The kitchen consists of pale cream units and dark granite work surfaces, with a combination of free-standing and integrated appliances.

There are patio doors and French doors from this very sociable space that give access to the garden outside, where there’s an astro-turf lawn, raised borders with sleepers and an open-barn covered area with hot-tub and room for seating. It’s clear that parties here would be amazing…

Back inside and The Dovecote’s tardis-like design provides a further separate lounge, which would be perfect for watching movies in privacy and an enormous downstairs cloakroom with a stylish, contemporary suite.

Upstairs on the first level are two of bedrooms each of which with en-suite shower rooms. They are both large double rooms and both have clever built-in cupboards - one is also double height, with stunning pitched ceilings. The mezzanine is currently used as a snug but could easily be made into an office or temporary sleeping area for guests.

The main bedroom occupies practically all of the second level and has its own spiral staircase that leads to a bathroom above. Again, the suite is contemporary and stylish, and the free-standing bath is positioned so you can make the most of the view from the bedroom’s high windows visible through an ingenious glazed panel.

The quality of the build of The Dovecote and the whole of Merton Grange Barns is extremely high, and the detailing is spared no thought. The clever, contemporary design, air source heating and great decorative elements make it feel more like a London loft-style home than a barn conversion in its traditional sense.

Parking is generously provided for - to the rear of the open barn area at the bottom of the garden there is parking for two cars (undercover) and there’s a third allocated parking space in the front courtyard. There’s also a large storage area integrated into the open barn providing a secure place for bikes and other outdoor equipment.

Merton Grange Barns is situated along a tranquil rural drive that leads only to the country house to which the barns once belonged. Gamlingay town centre is a short walk away and you can commute to central London by train from nearby Sandy in less than 40 minutes. Bedford and Cambridge are also an easy distance by car.

If you were looking for a stunning, relatively low maintenance home set in peaceful countryside, with the convenience of being close to London, you’d be hard-pressed to find one with more contemporary style than The Dovecote.
