Spanning 4500ft2, the living accommodation offers all you could need, with three large reception rooms on the ground floor, kitchen with scullery, a pantry and beautiful entrance hall with impressive staircase rising to first floor. Furthermore there are two cloakrooms and entrance vestibule to complete the ground floor accommodation.
To the first floor there are six double bedrooms with the master benefiting from floor to ceiling storage across the width of the room together with a refitted ensuite bathroom. The first floor accommodation has a family bathroom, which has also been refitted, along with a guest shower room.
In addition to the extensive accommodation that the house has to offer there are a number of outbuildings providing ample storage or potential for conversion. One of these is a beautiful thatched barn with a number of features which include porthole windows. It could easily be converted into an annexe, further accommodation, studio or office space. A further building includes a coach house and other storage units which again could easily be converted. There is parking for a large number of vehicles in front of the thatched barn on a shingle courtyard and double gates protect the boundary. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees and is enclosed by a panel fence surround and yew/leylandii hedge. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the space and charm this character property has to offer.
Vendors comments - We’ve lived at The Hoo for 22 wonderful years. The space means that it’s great for family life, superb for entertaining and gives you all the flexibility you could possibly need. We’ve had some great parties and Christmases here have been particularly special. The outbuildings have been used for teenage partying, workshops, garaging and storage and under previous owners were used to stable horses and house a horse-drawn carriage collection. We’ve really enjoyed living in this wonderful home and in Great Barford, with walks along the river and riverside dining at the famed Anchor Inn.General Information
