1 Mill Street is an extremely impressive period property with extensive and versatile accommodation set on a surprisingly large plot in the centre of the highly desirable, bustling village of Gamlingay. The property is Grade II* listed and dates back to around 1688 with later Victorian additions. The house is full of period features including panelling, architraving, sash and casement windows, cast iron fireplaces and brick and tiled flooring. Of particular note is a moulded and sculpted plaster ceiling dated 1688 by Matthew Doogood (who worked for Christopher Wren) comparable with the one in Pembroke College Old Library in Cambridge. These add a unique and characterful twist to what is already a wonderfully individual village home. The historic significance of the house and this ceiling are recognised in its inclusion in Pevsner’s Buildings of England.

The property offers an excellent range of reception rooms including two versatile principal rooms to the front, a lovely snug/library, a homely and comfortable kitchen/breakfast room with hand-made oak units, butler sink and space for a range cooker and a useful studio/office with views down the garden. The kitchen opens to south-facing sun room opening to the garden and there is also a pantry and a large scullery/utility room.

Three of the well-proportioned bedrooms are on the first floor and are served by a modern bathroom with double ended bath and bowl sink unit. There is also a separate WC. On the second floor are three further bedrooms (one currently used as an additional sitting room) and a bathroom. This accommodation offers the perfect space for teenage children/au pair etc. A further contemporary and recently refitted shower room is on the ground floor.

The property has a delightfully homely feel about it and is full of appeal. Its central village location belies its plot size and accommodation which extends to over 4,250sqft in all.   It is a hidden and rare gem which has been sympathetically repaired and restored by its present owners. There is still scope, however, for the new owners to contribute to the “living history” of the house.

To the side of the property there are double doors to the road, providing vehicular access to the rear courtyard space, the parking, and an excellent range of Victorian outbuildings. Offering scope for conversion (subject to planning, these outbuildings which were the former stables and cart lodge, are currently divided into a large workshop, a series of store rooms, a “chaff room” and a garage. There is also ample gravelled parking. The rear garden is a beautiful retreat and is extremely large and generous for the property’s central village location. Beyond the gravelled courtyard, a lawn extends, surrounded by flowerbeds and scattered with mature trees providing shade and additional character. It is a truly special space to relax and enjoy.
