LOCATION The popular, well served village of Cottenham lies about 5 miles north of the City of Cambridge with easy access along the B1049 with access onto the A14 dual carriageway at Impington. Cottenham offers a particularly good range of local facilities and there is a regular bus service into Cambridge.

Built to a design typical of the Victorian period with brick elevations under a slate roof, this elegant detached property stands well back from the road overlooking a large and very attractive mature front garden. Vehicular access to the property is via a private roadway serving only Lordship Villa which runs to the side of the Cottenham Club. Ideal for family occupation, the property offers spacious accommodation equipped with gas/radiator central heating and replacement double glazed windows virtually throughout of a design closely matching the originals.

As mentioned previously, there is a substantial range of outbuildings to the rear of the property which provide excellent storage and workshop space suitable for a wide variety of purposes.
