Vendor Insight The layout is flexible and can be developed and adapted to the needs of the owners. Originally developed when the existing owners lived in London, it was a ‘substantial home in the country’ used mainly for entertaining. House guests all enjoy their own suites of rooms. The family business then moved more towards Cambridgeshire and the owners commuted easily between London and Cambridge. With the addition of children their needs changed again and the house developed into a family home. It is a truly organic home. The home has many attractive features, including a beautiful outdoor heated swimming pool, with a motorized cover that opens and closes at the turn of a key. It has been designed to be safe and when lit at night creates a mood reminiscent of luxury holidays. It is enclosed in a beautiful courtyard, protected from the elements and is completely private and not overlooked. The house has been designed around the courtyard with double doors from nearly all the rooms opening out onto it. This creates a feeling that the garden becomes a part of the home. Throughout the year, it provides a beautiful west facing view with beautiful sunsets. The house has been designed with balanced proportions and symmetry in mind. All the bedrooms have built in wardrobes and bathrooms. The master bedroom suite includes ‘his and her’ walk in dressing rooms.


The kitchen, which is a large double height room, combines comfort, light and space and is very attractive.


There are two attractive private offices within the house that could be converted to bedrooms if required. The original annexe has become an integral part of the house which could be used for live-in staff or private guest accommodation.


Toad Hall is an extraordinary barn conversion located in approximately 13 acres of land. The area is private, safe and quiet.
