Sunny Grade II listed family home in Hertfordshire with serene gardens bordering the River Cam

Located in the coveted village of Ashwell, The Old Rectory is a beautiful family home with light-flooded interiors and charming gardens.

With a soft yellow color and a beautiful interior to match, Ashwell’s Old Rectory is located approximately eight miles from Royston and 19 from Cambridge – and enjoys sunny gardens leading to the River Cam.

The property is currently on the market via Savills with a guide price of £2.25m, and benefits from large windows that flood the interiors with natural daylight. This, with the clear and bright interiors that extend throughout the house, helps create a calm and elegant environment.

The kitchen, in particular, with its wood floors and white quartz countertops is a particularly charming room.

With five bedrooms, mostly double sided, listed on Grade II, it dates from about 1830 and sits on less than an acre of land, through which the drive meanders and where ripe sycamores, fir, oaks, and limes scatter.
