Swap the melee of city life and spin a new story amidst 7.5 acres of gardens (sts), ponds & a lake, not to mention a fabulously spacious six bedroom house of just under 6000sq ft built in 2020.

Pond View is the epitome of today's modern "country house" life with an imposing individual facade that conceals a stylish yet elegant interior. Sprawling accommodation set over two floors includes a welcoming entrance hall with central staircase, the ultimate lifestyle kitchen/dining/family room, fabulous games room with a second kitchen (potential to convert into annex accommodation), impressive landing with glass fronted balcony, sumptuous bedroom suites, 3 of which have ensuite shower and dressing rooms, individual and stylish bathroom, practical and informal accommodation that caters for everyday life plus flexible and glorious formal grounds that provide a wonderfully tranquil environment.

Built in 2020 to exacting standards and offering almost 6000sq ft of accommodation the house offers the perfect versatility for a growing family or those looking to entertain, complimented by approximately 7.5 acres of gardens (sts), with formal and informal spaces.

The gardens offer huge opportunities, there is space to keep a pony, space for energetic games, a lake and ponds to practice your fishing skills, or simply walk through the meandering pathways with an almost nature "reserve feel" and enjoy the wildlife throughout the year. Private electric gates open to a large driveway, the integral double garage just to the right, the drive sweeping left towards the first pond, timber stables and gardens. Formal lawns flank the south and east elevations with an ornamental fish pond and patio with timber pergola, a great space to entertain al fresco or position the hot tub!

Internally the house is centred around a welcoming galleried entrance hall with a central Oak staircase, double doors leading to a stunning open plan kitchen family living space. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with a large central island incorporating the induction hob and wine cooler. In addition the kitchen has 2 integrated dishwashers, 2 built in ovens, a built in eye level coffee machine and space for an American sized fridge. The sitting room leads off the kitchen, is very generous in size and has an Inglenook style fireplace with multi fuel stove and bay window with Bi fold doors leading to the garden. The games room, again is fabulously proportioned and has been designed in such a way as to provide potential annex accommodation. It already has its own small kitchen and the windows, light switches etc have been placed to make a potential conversion possible. Also on the ground floor is a utility room and cloak room, rear lobby, shower room and double integral garage.

A galleried landing with Oak banisters embraces the first floor, as you can imagine the large open space setting the scene. Double doors lead to a glass fronted balcony, positioned over the patio and offering glimpses towards the ponds an lake. Six bedrooms arranged off the landing, the three principal suites all with ensuite dressing/wardrobe and bathrooms. The fourth bedroom has Jack & Jill use of the family bathroom and two further bedrooms occupy either ends of the house.

Energy efficiency was very much at the forefront of design and the property scores a very high 86 points (B) in the energy performance table. The heating system is oil fired with underfloor heating to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor.

Barway is situated just to the south of Ely home to a world famous 900 year old Cathedral. The historic city of ELY lies on the river Great Ouse probably no more than 15 miles from the City of Cambridge. There are a very good range of shopping facilities within the centre itself including a market which takes place on both Thursdays and Saturdays. A comprehensive range of local schooling is available. The area boasts a number of sporting facilities including an 18 hole golf course, indoor swimming pool, gymnasium and squash club whilst socially there are an excellent variety of pubs and restaurants, including the new Ely Leisure Village anchored by a 6 screen Cineworld with family restaurants and take-aways. There are also the most wonderful countryside walks the Fen has to offer. Ely is unsurprisingly very popular with commuters due to its excellent road and rail links. The A10 links the two cities from which links to the A14 and M11 provide routes to London (70 miles) and the rest of the country. From Ely's mainline rail station Cambridge can be reached in approximately 17 minutes with London beyond (Kings Cross / Liverpool Street) which can be accessed within 1 hour 15 minutes.
