Property SummarySpacious three bedroom former Victorian School House set in a lovely quiet location within a short walk of the High Street . Within the grounds there is a substantial studio/workshop/double garage which would lend itself to conversion to further accommodation. The main living areas in the house have tall elegant ceilings, synonymous with a home of this period. The accommodation extends to the living room which overlooks the rear garden. The separate formal Dining Room is big enough to be a more versatile family room and there is a kitchen, laundry room and guest cloakroom. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with en Suite, two further bedrooms and family bathroom.
A most unexpected feature of the property is the mature and really most attractive walled garden. It offers both a high degree of privacy and views of the Kimbolton Church Spire. There is also a garage and ample parking.

WALLED REAR GARDEN. Given that the property is only a few steps away from the main high Street then the most unexpected feature of the property is the mature and attractive walled garden. It offers both a high degree of privacy and views of the Kimbolton Church Spire. The gardens are laid to lawn with weaved edging to form borders, imaginatively interspersed with a variety of trees and shrubs. Feature rockery with fishpond, seated patio area, full width raised and paved terrace/patio area, pagoda with climbing plants. There is also outside lighting that make alfresco evening dining a very atmospheric event.
A few years ago the present owners made an enquiry with Huntingdon District Council to convert the garage and outbuilding; which in the past were the former canteen and kitchen. This would then become an annexe adjacent to the house. The result would have been a 1 1/2 storey dwelling. Case reference 1107313PENQ.
