Property SummaryNewly converted to a high standard by a bespoke local developer, “The Grain Barn” is one of two superb semi-detached barn conversions, set within a rural location with stunning views.
There are just three properties in this small development, which is accessed via electric gates.
Whilst being in the countryside, St Neots’, a popular riverside market town, extensive facilities and its mainline railway station are only around six miles away. (Bedford station and its town centre facilities are around nine miles away as an alternative).
The property offers expansive living space with a very large living/dining room complete with bi-folding doors. The kitchen is fitted with quality units and solid worktops and the ground floor space also includes a study, a utility room and a shower room.
Upstairs the master bedroom has an en suite and a dressing area. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom complete with a large walk through shower and a bath.
The property is fully double glazed and heating and hot water is provided by an air source heat pump. The property will come with a 10 year Builders’ Warranty.
Outside, there is a beautiful raised terrace to the front from which to enjoy the rural views. All areas will be landscaped to a high standard and there are side and rear garden areas.
The location is also convenient for the A1 giving easy access to the extensive range of amenities in St Neots and Bedford. Cambridge and the M11 are also readily accessible.
There is no main drainage to the property – so a private sewage treatment plant is in place. The modest maintenance costs will be shared between the three properties that form part of the development.

Map & Nearby
Location SummaryTo the north east of Bedford is Great Barford, reportedly an important village at the time of the Domesday Book and a bridge that dates back to the 15th century, which was an important waterway crossing at the time. You can sit in the gardens of The Anchor pub with a view of the bridge, and alongside there is a footpath that takes you along the river for a walk to Bedford via Danish Camp. The village is large with a mixture of old (dating to 17th century) and new houses. A Norman motte and bailey castle that sat in the village has now been replaced with a Priory.
Great Barford Primary Academy is situated in the village close to a village shop and surgery, and locals report that the best Chinese can be found at the Golden Cross where you can eat in or take away.
Roxton is far smaller than Great Barford and sits close to the A1. With a small primary school, two churches and Post Office, it is also served by the Spoke N’ Wheel café and restaurant which serves afternoon teas and evening meals, close to The Royal Oak Pub an established pub and hotel.
North of Roxton just off the A1 is Wyboston, known for Wyboston Lakes a large hotel with golf course, spa and conference facilities. As the name suggests, it has been built around the lake offering picturesque views from the hotel restaurant and golf course.
An agricultural area due to its proximity to the Great River Ouse, Wyboston is served by amenities in adjacent Eaton Socon which has larger supermarkets and schools.
Little Barford sits to the edge of Wyboston Lake and the Great River Ouse, to the east on the county boundary of Cambridgeshire, with St Denys Church being one of the main features of the parish. It is a very small village, with a manor house, farm and a few cottages.
