A stunning, contemporary detached house with light, spacious, versatile accommodation and distant views

Location

As the name would suggest, Underhill is hidden away - a plot which has been "carved" from raised ground close to the picturesque High Street of Swaffham Prior. The village is characterised by its many attractive period properties and well known for its neighbouring churches with interesting towers, once serving separate parishes despite their close proximity to each other. There are good local facilities including The Red Lion public house, village hall, and primary school. More comprehensive facilities are located in the nearby villages of Swaffham Bulbeck and Burwell. The University City of Cambridge is just 8 miles to the south west where there is excellent schooling, shopping and a diverse range of recreational facilities. Newmarket, the home of English racing, is just 6.3 miles to the East.

For the commuter there is access onto the A14 at Stow cum Quy (6 miles) together with connections to the A11/M11 and Stansted Airport. There are mainline rail stations at Newmarket, Whittlesford, Waterbeach and Cambridge - serving either London's Liverpool Street and/or Kings Cross Stations.

Description

Underhill is a surprisingly spacious contemporary home which was built in 2003 with many appealing, modern features. Screened behind a brick wall, this interesting house really needs to be seen in order to fully appreciate the light and lofty rooms and versatile accommodation. Principally over two floors - the ground and the lower ground, with an office on the first floor, there are up to 5 bedrooms throughout depending on how the configuration works for the occupants.

As soon as you enter the house, there is a fantastic feeling of light and space, from the lantern over the dining room, to the wide, tall glazing at the rear of both the dining and sitting areas - enjoying views over the gardens and beyond. This welcoming space is divided by a central feature fireplace and has oak flooring with underfloor heating (which runs through the majority of the house). The kitchen adjoins this reception space and is fitted with a central island, an extensive range of gloss white units, cupboards, deep pan drawers and has granite worktops, a steam oven, induction hob with extractor, 2 fridges, freezer, larder, dishwasher and microwave. Beyond the kitchen is a second staircase to the lower ground floor (and utility, gym and media room/5th bedroom) and the breakfast room with vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and doors to the garden. The side hall at the front of the house leads to two bedrooms - one having an en suite shower room, and to the left of the front door is a study or 4th bedroom and adjacent shower room. The principal stairs lead up to the office and down to the master suite of dressing room, bedroom and large bathroom with connecting door to the media room/snug or 5th bedroom.

Approached from the road the property has a paved parking area and a sloping drive which leads to the lower ground level double garage with remote controlled timber clad and insulated door. The well-stocked, mature gardens are a delightful feature of the property surrounding the house, they are divided by walls into various areas to sit and enjoy the sun at various times of the day. There is a large raised "decked" seating area with lit and heated canopy leading from the kitchen and dining area which provides a delightful area to sit and enjoy the view.

Square Footage: 3,923 sq ft
