Why buy this home?

Over the past 20 years, the current owners have made significant alterations to this home, adding approximately 450 sq.ft of living space via double storey and single storey extensions.

At the front of the property the driveway is wide enough to fit three cars side-by-side, as well as there being a garage for additional vehicles or to use for storage purposes. Through the front door you enter into a hallway which is the ideal place to take off shoes and hang up coats, as well there being internal access to the garage. Opposite the garage door is a utility room which houses all laundry appliances, keeping noise at bay and freeing up vital space in the kitchen.

The kitchen itself has space for a breakfast table or small freestanding island in the middle. A Rangemaster sits pride of place and ensures catering for the entire family is an easy task. There is space for a freestanding fridge/freezer and there are ample base and eye-level units providing storage, as well as a useful pantry cupboard.

A door leads through to what was the original living room, which is now a dedicated dining space. You can comfortably fit an 8-seater dining table and there is still room for sideboards and dressers. This room ensures you can host large family functions. An extension behind the garage is home to an additional reception room which has an external door to the garden, as well as a WC. Currently used as a snug, it could easily be a home office and provides much sought-after flexibility.

A further rear extension is where the new living room is located. This space is semi-open plan to the dining room offering further flexibility in terms of layout. French doors lead to the west-facing rear garden which means this room is flooded with light all afternoon and into the evening as it makes the most of the setting sun. Outside both sets of external doors is a patio which stretches the width of the property and offers space for seating or alfresco dining. The impressive mature garden is separated into a lawn area with borders filled with various plants and shrubs. The flat, grassed nature of this area provides a space for children to play or friends/family to gather. The rear section feels like a secret garden, separated from the main garden via a trellis and hedgerow. It's the perfect space for those with greenfingers to grow herbs and vegetables thanks to the raised beds. There is a further patio area where you can sit and take a well needed break after an afternoon of tending to your plants, as well as there being a summer house and workshop for those little projects. The summer house has power due to an armoured cable which runs off the house, and although the workshop doesn't, it would be possible to connect to the supply from the summer house with ease.

Upstairs the original three bedrooms are two doubles and one single. The main bedroom has a built-in wardrobe to free up additional floorspace. Even the second double has an alcove for wardrobes meaning it's a very useable room. The family bathroom is where you truly appreciate the double-storey front extension as it has given the ability to create a relaxing space that not only offers a bath, but also a double shower cubicle. The extension over the garage has created a further bedroom which is ideal for guests or for an older child who wants their own privacy as it has its own ensuite with shower cubicle.

Overall the size, condition and location of this home is sure to put a smile on the faces of the lucky new owners.

More about the location...

Little Paxton in Cambridgeshire, is a village and civil parish that lies 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Huntingdon and 1.7 miles (2.7 km) north of St Neots. Until the 1970s it was a minor village but the building of a housing estate, a junior school and the establishment of the Paxton Pits Nature Reserve around part of the nearby gravel pits has brought visitors to the village..

The nature reserve features lakes, woodland and part of the Ouse floodplain and is home to large numbers of cormorants and many summer visitors such as nightingales and a large number of passerine birds. Grebes, ducks and geese have colonised the lakes.

The A1 road follows the route of the Great North Road and lies to the west of Little Paxton; it runs roughly from south-west to north through the parish. There is a restricted access junction at the northern edge of Little Paxton (cannot join A1 southbound) and a restricted access junction that only allows southbound access to the A1 to the south-west of the village. The A1 Road is Northbound traffic to Peterborough and Southbound to London but this only happens from the South-West of Little Paxton. It is 1.7 miles (2.7 km) from Little Paxton to the railway station at St Neots which is on the East Coast Main Line where regular services run south to London and north to Huntingdon and Peterborough.

The village has a public house called The Anchor. Little Paxton playing field has two football pitches, a cricket pitch and a floodlit multi-purpose games area. A variety of water sports including waterski, jet ski, and sailing are available on the lakes at Little Paxton. With suitable permits, fishing is allowed in some of the gravel pits and on the river Great Ouse in Little Paxton.

Little Paxton Primary School opened in 1972 and has around 360 pupils aged from four to eleven as of December 2022. Senior school pupils attend Longsands Academy or Ernulf Academy in St Neots.
