Property of the Day: Kimbrook House, Cambridgeshire
THE PROPERTY: Kimbrook House is an elegant Grade II-listed property that dates from the late 17th century. Sitting amid 3.5 acres of land, the house has been carefully updated over time: first in the 19th century, when a new façade with rusticated stone quoins was added, and most recently by the current owners, who meticulously redesigned the interior to update the house’s traditional Georgian charm for the modern day.
THE LOCATION: Surrounding the property are beautifully landscaped gardens, while magnificent Wellingtonia trees form part of an avenue leading to Kimbolton Castle. To the south lies a large meadow, adjoining an orchard, and there is also a tennis court. The property sits on the outskirts of Stonely village and the Stonely Conservation Area, and St Neots train station is 8.4 miles away, providing a fast and frequent service to London in just 53 minutes.
THE INTERIOR: The house is light and spacious, with well-proportioned rooms finished with simple, clean lines. Alongside a drawing-room, games-room and four-car garage, the house offers a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, five further bedrooms, two bathrooms and two shower-rooms.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The glazed family room, adjoining the house and garden, is a unique feat of modern design, perfect for entertaining guests in the evening. It includes a suspended wood-burning stove and a copper canopy roof.
