Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Silver Lodge is a beautiful quintessentially English country property, surrounded mainly by farmland and situated on the edge of the pastoral East Cambridgeshire village of Wilburton where time itself appears to have stood still for many years.

The village, exuding old world charm, is located 6 miles from the Cathedral City of Ely, where direct trains to & from London operate frequently.

The house, which offers five bedrooms and five bathrooms of which three are en suite, comes with a very generous internal double garage and sits in its own grounds with external car parking for up to 12 cars.

Access to the grounds is via one of three sets of double iron gates; two sets to the front and one to the side of the property.

The house was built in 1952 to pre-Second World War standards, with leaded double glazed windows throughout, central heating with radiators and has been the subject of much expansion, refurbishment & improvement by the various owners throughout its life and yet still manages to retain both characterful & modern features.

Main entrance to the property is through double wooden in-laid decorative brass & glass panelled doors into the hallway which is laid with oak parquet flooring with various rooms leading off from it and beautiful stairway leading to the upper floor and new wing and 2 small cupboards for footwear & coats.

On the ground floor:
There are 2 receptions rooms; one is the main lounge through which internal access is granted to the large conservatory which looks out onto and has access to the rear garden & patio.
The main lounge features a marble surround fireplace with operational LPG gas fire and dual aspect windows to the side & front. The 2nd spacious reception room can also be used as a dining room or TV room and features a beautiful original brick fireplace which can use various forms of solid fuel.
The kitchen was completely redesigned and rebuilt from floor to ceiling by the current owners and is modern yet sympathetic to the age of the property. The rebuild incorporated features such as soft closing double sized drawers and cupboard doors, dual selected under-wall cupboard unit lighting, floor level lighting, 2 extractor units including the cooker extractor hood and under unit low level dual powered heating. The ceiling lighting is also split for convenience by area. Completing the kitchen rebuild are porcelain floor tiles, a breakfast bar and a 1½ Rangemaster stainless sink and draining board.

The third room on the ground floor is used by the current owners as music studio/cinema. This also has door access to the patio & rear garden.This room would also be very suited to be used as an office, study or playroom.

The ground floor cloakroom/shower room was the subject of a total refurbishment 3 years ago and is of high spec, modern appearance.

A new wing was added in 2005 by the previous owners above the double garage and offers a family bathroom, one very large double bedroom and one large double bedroom with a through hallway to one side which opens out to the large landing area which leads to the other 2 double en-suite bedrooms and one single en-suite bedroom which is currently used as an office study and laid to carpet throughout.


The external area
The rear garden consists of a large cultivated lawn laid mainly to a gravel border and features two small flower beds at one end. There is a decorative brick wall with 2 lanterns and features a small water fountain in the centre.
The large patio area can be accessed from the garage, conservatory, studio or side of the property.
An outside tap is located adjacent to the garage door and there is an all-weather external power supply by the conservatory.
The front area which is laid mainly to gravel retains 2 flower beds; various mature trees & bushes and an 18-foot flag pole.
A hedge runs along the full length of one side of the grounds.

There are 11 Canterbury lanterns which surround the whole property which are on a dusk to dawn variable.
