Country houses for sale

Stunning village house for sale

Ickleton Place is a large period property on the edge of Ickleton on the Cambridgeshire/Essex border. The property was built in 1937 for a Lady Bowen, and was designed very much with the Edwardian country house style in mind. It remained practically unchanged until the present owners renovated the property completely when they bought it in 2005. It is now fully equipped for modern living, but retains its period charm.

The property has a reception hall, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, family room, Aga in kitchen/breakfast room, ultility room, pantry and a master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and dressing room plus five further bedrooms and two further bathrooms.

Outside Ickleton Place stands in nearly three acres, within which are a range of outbuildings and a workshop near a small spinney. The majority of the gardens are to the south of the property and are beautifully landscaped with a central lawn with brick paths running around it, and well-stocked shrub and herbaceous borders.

There is also a well wired hard tennis court and an orchard as well as a brick pergola close to the house itself. In addition to this is a formal rose garden with a gazebo and two small paddocks.

Transport links are excellent with Saffron Walden just four miles away and Cambridge itself 13 miles distant.
