A Grade II Listed period property in the sought-after village of Brampton, Cambridgeshire, is on the market for £950,000 – and it could be the hiding place of treasure placed by the famous diarist, Samuel Pepys...

Covering a total of 3,561-square-feet, Bridge End House is described as "one of Brampton’s most notable and historical Grade II Listed residential properties." Believed to date back to the early seventeen hundreds, it has been well maintained by previous owners.

The property has five bedrooms, three large reception rooms and three bathrooms. It boasts period features, private gardens, off-street parking and an additional 960-square-foot detached barn on its land.

Stepping through the front door of the main house leads you into the hallway, featuring a beautiful oak staircase.

The lounge is large, with its own fireplace and lots of natural light. It's a great sitting area for reading in the winter, or relaxing with cup of tea.

Just around the corner, the kitchen follows suit. It is open plan and spacious, with ample cooking space and a dining table against an exposed brick wall.

The dining room, though, is where a true banquet can be held. Described by agents as a "formal dining room," there is no mistaking that this room has the potential for many a dinner party.

The principle bedroom suite is particularly impressive. The room's partition celebrates the original beams and encapsulates the previous owners' intentions to modernise where necessary, yet maintain traditional character.

Outside the property, there's a gravel drive, providing enough space for several cars. The garden is expansive, with a courtyard positioned perfectly for catching the rising sun. The grounds are secured with remote-controlled gates.

Brampton has an interesting history. Previously known as Brantune in the eleventh century, scattered human remains have been found in the area, dating back to 1600-2000 years. Brampton also has associations with the famous diarist, Samuel Pepys, and legends say that his fortune is buried somewhere in the village, still yet to be found...

In regard to amenities, Brampton is located only one mile from Huntingdon railway station. A train journey to Kings Cross, London, takes just over an hour. Both the A1 and A14 are also in close proximity, granting easy access to main routes. Nearby is Kimbolton School, with the bus stop to it just a stone's throw away.

This property is on the market now with Carter Jonas.

Take a look around...
