Steeped in history and attractive architecture; a focal point being the splendid 15th Century Bridge and chapel over the river which is one of only three such surviving bridges in England, this thriving riverside market town has become an increasingly popular choice for many buyers.
St Ives is conveniently situated nearby to various transport links; train services provide access to London Kings Cross from Huntingdon mainline railway station in less than 50 minutes and the nearby guided busway offers services to Cambridge and Huntingdon. In addition, the A14 is around 3 miles away which in turn offers access to the A1/M1 and M11.
37 The Broadway has remained in the same ownership for almost 45 years and has been well maintained throughout the duration of the current owner’s occupation. The main house provides incredibly versatile accommodation, briefly comprising 3 reception rooms, kitchen, study, 4 bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms, in all extending to some 2255 sq. ft. In addition to this, the attic, which subject to the necessary consent could be converted to further accommodation is particularly spacious with three dormer windows, in all covering 615 sq. ft.
The principle sitting room is particularly notable. Being the oldest part of the house it is believed to date back to the early 18th century, and behind the existing Jetmaster fireplace there is thought to be the original inglenook fireplace. Adjacent, the study area with French doors provides views across the mature grounds and garden towards the river and the Holt Island nature reserve. The kitchen is well appointed having been tastefully refitted in 2011 and complemented by a utility room with WC and shower.
The property is approached via The Broadway. There are large timber gates which provide vehicular access into a cobbled parking area with the lawns and river beyond. Once inside, the mature gardens provide a peaceful setting with far reaching views along and beyond the river and adjacent Holt Island Nature Reserve.
Agents note: The adjacent property, 37A has shared access over the driveway and through the archway from The Broadway.
