PROPERTY SUMMARY ** GUIDE PRICE £500,000-£525,000 **
In the heart of most English villages, you'll find a bakery. And in about 1800, this spot was chosen for the Bakery in Earith. Its location is ideal - an easy walk from everything the village has to offer, and in an elevated position. Over the last 220 or so years, the building has evolved into a house that's full of history - yet ready for the future.

But ready for whom? You could be a young and growing family. Perhaps you have a need for office or business space - or to accommodate older family members, or those returning from their studies. The Old Bakery provides a uniquely versatile space that is ready to adapt to your needs.

Drive in through the double iron gates and the gravelled driveway presents a real family-sized off road parking area, as well as a cart lodge/car port and workshop with built in storage. There's plenty of space to store kayaks and paddleboards, ready to slip into the river on a summer's day.

Enter the main house through the rear kitchen/breakfast room - recently refitted to a high standard. There's a door to the cosy TV lounge with recently installed log burner. A second door leads to another reception room.

Go through to the back of the house - the site of the original cast iron bakery oven. This Victorian marvel makes a real statement at the end of the 25ft dining room which also features exposed brickwork and vaulted ceiling.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms. The two at the rear of the house include the master bedroom with its ensuite facilities, while the front bedrooms offer exceptional views over the River Ouse and the RSPB Ouse Fen Nature Reserve -in which Bitterns can sometimes be seen (and frequently heard).

Upstairs is completed with a recently refitted family bathroom.

The granary is approached by an external staircase and offers a recently converted and very versatile space, with potential for a self-contained annexe, home office, studio or gym. Stairs lead down to the peaceful garden room, with views over the rear garden.

The garden is laid mainly to lawn but includes vegetable and flower beds with established shrubs. The large patio areas are perfect for enjoying the evening sun, and benefit from complete privacy - perfect for outdoor entertaining or even relaxing in a hot tub!

The Old Bakery is full of period features, and has been a very happy family home for the last ten years. The property has been extensively upgraded and improved by the current owners during their occupation including a new boiler, a new consumer unit, updated kitchen, new bathrooms and the fitting of a wood burner. Now, it's time for its next adventure - and yours. There is no forward chain, and viewing of this truly unique property is highly recommended and can be organised by contacting our St Ives office.
