MAGNIFICENT Family home situated in the heart of EATON SOCON and within close proximity to the HISTORICAL MARKET TOWN of St.Neots. SYCAMORE HOUSE holds many of its ORIGINAL FEATURES and offers the perfect blend of MODERN LIVING and CLASSIC CHARM.
The property benfits from new decorative wall radiators in the lounge/sitting room and master bedroom and the addition of a new megaflow high pressure hot water system.
Planning permisiion has been approved for conversion of garage and raised roof line, erection of an orangery, and an oak car port with the establishment of new front wall and oak gates, new windows to kichen and connection of kitchen directly to utility by removal of back stairs.
Sycamore House pairs period charm with modern convenience and would make a great family home for anyone looking to settle in the St Neots area. It has been really well cared for and decorated thoughtfully to retain its heritage feel. It has quirky features like a spare staircase and some fantastic family spaces - its difficult not to fall in love with it at first sight.
Set back from the road the house retains all the stature of its Victorian origins. There are some great original features inside, like the encaustic tiles in the hallway and the beautiful little fireplaces in some of the rooms, the painted solid pine doors and period wooden floorboards.
These historic elements are paired sensitively with contemporary additions such as a new shaker style kitchen and a huge conservatory (currently used as a dining area). Smart home technology is used for heating, hot water and security, but there is also an open fireplace in the cosy living room.
The cleverly combined kitchen and conservatory space is great for entertaining. It is bright and warm, overlooks the garden and is designed so you can chat to guests at the table while preparing food on the range-style cooker.
Huge bay windows ensure that the rooms at the front of the house (the living room and master bedroom) are bright, even on duller days, and the dimensions of the main rooms are really generous. There is an overall sense of space, helped along by the high ceilings.
Towards the back of the house is a useful snug/family room and a separate utility room with a stone-tiled floor.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has its own en-suite shower room, brilliantly designed for the space, and a door leading to another room that is currently used as a nursery (it could easily be used as a walk-in dressing area if you didnt need a fourth bedroom).
As you might expect from a house of this period, the other two bedrooms are a good size and one has floor-to-ceiling built-in cupboards. The second bedroom has peaceful views onto gardens and trees to the rear, and the family bathroom is a great mix of modern design and original features.
Outside there is a purpose-built office room overlooking its own courtyard garden, with raised beds for planting. Viewed from the conservatory are a large lawn and patio area - perfect for outdoor games and entertaining.
A double garage to the side of the house has access from the hallway and there is enough space to park more than two cars in the front driveway area.
