Storybook Cambs house for sale for just second time in 100 years

A Victorian country house has come on the market in Cambridgeshire for only the second time in 100 years.

The name ‘Bourn Lodge’ doesn’t really do justice to its epic dimensions, set in 23 acres of rolling South Cambridgeshire countryside.

Formerly the Dower House to the Bourn Hall Estate – meaning it was kept for the widow of the previous owner – this nineteenth-century build will set you back £2,750,000.

While it floats in the clouds for most house-hunters, the sale gives people a rare opportunity to ascend the property beanstalk and take a look around.

There’s plenty to see in this five-bed country house which – outrageously – has both a swimming pool and a tennis court.

So we’ve kept it to just the most breathtaking photos below.

If you really are interested in having a proper look around, you can book a viewing through Savills here.

Property Agent Lucy Banks says: “I love the fact that the house sits amidst its land and has stunning far-reaching rolling views over its paddocks and the countryside beyond.

“We gather that this is the only the second time it’s been on the market since it was built in 1866 so early viewings recommended.”
