With accommodation of over 2,800sqft, laid out over three floors, it offers excellent and versatile family living space and is set in the most lovely gardens and grounds of around 1.75 acres. The main part of the house comprises two charming reception rooms both with large inglenook fireplaces fitted with wood burners and a delightful Aga kitchen. A door from the kitchen leads through to the utility area and the cosy study which in turn leads out to the terrace and garden. There is also a ground floor bathroom with both a bath and a wet room style shower. A staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a lovely master bedroom with en-suite shower, two further double bedrooms, one with wash basin, and a separate WC. On the second floor is a further double bedroom with another attic room providing a useful tucked-away sitting room area. The fourth bedroom is accessed via the second staircase along with a pretty Jack and Jill bathroom which is shared with bedroom six. On the second floor is a further double bedroom with another attic room providing a useful tucked-away sitting room area.The current owner has created a self-contained annexe which provides perfect accommodation for a dependent relative, guests, nanny or teenage children. There is a bed-sitting room, a wet room and a fully fitted kitchen. Ladder steps give access to a useful attic store room and to bedroom six which opens back into the main part of the house. The annexe could easily be incorporated back into the main hub of the house if needed. The property boasts many beautiful period features including original brick flooring, exposed wall and ceiling timbers, casement and sash windows and carved studwork.The property is approached through double timber vehicular gates opening to the gravelled driveway which leads to the car port and outbuildings. The front of the house is enclosed by striking carved wrought iron railings by Wilkinsons of Ely and a gate opens to a path leading to the former front door. The well-tended and landscaped gardens and grounds are a credit to the property, being mainly laid to lawn with thoughtfully planted shrubs and trees. There are beautiful views from all aspects to the church and farmland beyond. There is an ornamental pond and a charming rotating octagonal summer house. The gardens are wonderfully secluded, back onto open fields and benefit from a superb southerly aspect; the brick paved terrace to the side of the house providing the perfect space for al-fresco dining etc.There is an extensive and useful range of outbuildings which include workshops (one housing the oil tank) and an open barn which, subject to planning, could be converted for a number of uses. The grounds provide the perfect place for those interested in keeping horses. The two stables form part of the outbuildings and the two paddocks have been enclosed by post and rail fencing. This set- up is complimented by a manege. In all the grounds extend to around 1.75 acres. (we will do a promap to confirm acreage).
