A moated farmhouse of about 353 sqm / 3800 sqft, brilliantly positioned in 2 acres at the end of a private lane within walking distance of the village centre and mainline station.
Mortimers Farmhouse is a cherished home, full of warmth and comfort and idyllically positioned with its main gardens moated to three sides by the village’s historic Common Stream. Across the moat to the north is a further 1 acre paddock.
Its setting is as pleasing as one could hope, positioned at the very end of a private lane away from passing traffic and surrounded by open land, but unlike many houses of its scale it is not isolated, being just 5 minutes’ walk from the village shop, a few minutes’ more to the primary school and about 10 minutes’ walk to the mainline railway station.
It is currently used as one house with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms across the first floor, 4 reception rooms, a large main kitchen, secondary kitchen, utility, pantry and cloakroom on the ground floor plus an attached double garage. It could also very easily revert to working as a five bedroom house plus a one bedroom attached annex.
The house has been well-maintained across the 40 year tenure of the current seller with recent improvements including triple-glazing to most windows and an air-source heat pump to serve the central heating.
Foxton is a historic village about 4 miles south west of the city boundary along the A10. It is pretty and compact, with about 500 houses, and is well-served by an Ofsted ‘Good’ rated primary school, a well-stocked local shop / post office, a traditional pub, modern village hall and playing fields with tennis courts and a bowling green.
The village has its own mainline railway station with trains to Cambridge taking about 13 minutes and the fastest service to London Kings Cross taking less than an hour.
It gives a fantastic balance of commuting convenience and countryside living.
