Description: The former Bluntisham rectory once served as the home of author Dorothy Sayers, creator of Lord Peter Wimsey, who would have felt right at home in this refined English countryside setting.
The inside has many elegant features, including beautiful molded plaster cornices, Doric columns, period fireplaces and high ceilings. It has been, however, brought up to modern standards of comfort with central, gas-fired heating and new mechanicals, plus a heated, indoor pool.
The house has splendid farmland views and comes with two acres of landscaped grounds. There's a conservatory, lush lawns and fine old trees. A three-car garage and workshop are also on the property.
