Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most delightful Grade II Listed thatched cottage situated on the fringe of this highly sought after village and within walking distance of open countryside, village shop and pub.

Being located approximately 7 miles to the west of Cambridge the village of Bourn, which gets a mention in the 1056 Doomsday Book, is ideal for those needing to commute into Cambridge either by bicycle or car or for those traveling into London via the M11.

The beautiful front garden has mature hedging to the boundaries and being slighted elevated to the road is private from traffic passing down the lane. With a well maintained lawn and inset paving stone foot path to the front entrance door our client has often sat on the old bench watching the horses in the paddock beyond. The small front cottage door is so typically English and gives a hint of what is to follow once inside.

GROUND FLOOR

The character and warmth of the property hugs you as soon as you step inside. With low beamed ceiling and walls, you may be surprised at just how light the SITTING ROOM is, with ample natural light flooding in from the front and rear window. Many evenings have been sat in front of the large open fire with raised hearth and grate watching the flames dance on a cold winter evening. Old fashion latch doors lead through to the kitchen and dining room and a further door gives access to the first floor.

DINING ROOM / SINGLE BEDROOM with stripped wall and ceiling beams and window overlooking the front garden, this room has been used as a single bedroom previously and also as an office.

INNER LOBBY AREA which has a door leading to the rear garden and parking area. This area is ideal for hanging coats if entering through the back door. A further door leads to the ground floor BATHROOM. After a long day at work, enjoy a hot soak in the cast iron, claw foot roll top bath. A ceiling skylight ensures ample natural light, with tiled flooring and vanity wash hand basin.

There is a further SEPARATE WC next door to the bathroom, which comprises a high flush WC.

The open plan cottage style KITCHEN / BREAKFAST ROOM will take you by surprise. With flagstone flooring and being of unusual shape, the kitchen is defined by the vaulted ceiling and the large windows overlooking the rear terrace area. With free standing units, solid wood work-surfaces, Belfast butler sink, double oven with gas hob. Door leads off to a GUEST BEDROOM / STUDY

FIRST FLOOR

Approached from the SITTING ROOM via a narrow dog leg staircase the LANDING / STUDY AREA is currently used as a SINGLE BEDROOM with a low window to the rear and interconnects with the MASTER BEDOOM, both of which have exposed wall beams. The master bedroom overlooks the front.

OUTSIDE

An enclosed rear courtyard is situated outside the kitchen backdoor and enjoys a southerly aspect and is totally private. A gate leads out to the rear driveway which provides vehicular access to the rear CARPORT which leads through to the main rear garden. The south facing rear garden is a good size and quite unexpected being mainly laid to lawn and with gravel patio area, hedging and timber fencing to the boundaries. There is a timber storage shed and green house.
