Cammocks is a charming Grade II Listed detached property dating originally from around the 15th or 16th century. It displays splendid original detailing throughout, including timber beams, exposed brickwork and original fireplaces. While outside there is a substantial thatched barn, which offers potential for development.

On the ground floor there are three reception rooms – the drawing room and the sitting room, which are adjoined and separated by vertical timbers, creating an open-plan feel to the space. Both rooms have impressive inglenook fireplaces and prominent timber beams overhead. The formal dining room has terracotta tiles to the floor and a decorative fireplace, not currently functional. The kitchen has plenty of storage in white units, space for a breakfast table, a walk-in larder and integrated appliances.

A turned staircase leads to the galleried first floor landing, with its skylight welcoming plenty of natural light. There are four well-proportioned double bedrooms on the first floor all of which have fitted storage. The family bathroom is on the first floor, along with a cloakroom and a shower room on the ground floor.

North Hertfordshire District Council (May 2020) has been consulted and provided written advice in principle for ground floor extension to the kitchen, improvements to the principal bedroom ensuite and offering conversion/development of the thatched barn. (interested parties must ensure that their individual plans would sit with the current advice).

Outside

At the front of the property there is a five-bar timber gate, which opens onto a gravel driveway and provides access to the thatched barn, providing an office and storage space, totalling almost 1,200 sq ft including a garage with separate drive/parking area. To the rear there are delightful gardens, with extensive lawns, well-kept shrubs and hedgerows, paved terracing, a variety of mature trees and a large natural pond with waterlilies, bulrushes and irises.

Situation

The property lies in the heart of the small North Hertfordshire village. There's a local pub and everyday amenities can be found in the nearby village of Ashwell (2 miles) with local shops, pharmacy, primary school and other facilities.

The property is located between the two market towns of Biggleswade to the north and Baldock, to the south. Both are easily accessible via the A1, which is just over a mile from the property, with both towns providing a choice of shopping and supermarkets, as well as leisure facilities and schooling. Baldock mainline station provides services to London Kings Cross in 40 minutes, while Biggleswade provides fast services, taking just over half an hour.

Directions

From Cambridge, take The Fen Causeway west away from the city centre, and after crossing over the River Cam, take the first exit at the roundabout onto the A603 (Newnham Road). Continue to follow the A603 for nine and a half miles. Arriving at a roundabout, take the second exit, following the sign for Sandy, to join the B1042 (Lower Road). Continue straight ahead for seven and a half miles, through the village of Dunton, before taking the first exit at the roundabout, following the sign for Edworth. After two miles, turn left, again following a sign for Edworth. Continue through Edworth and into Hinxworth, turning left onto Chapel Street. You will find the property on your left-hand side.
