Bag End is a wonderful detached property situated in one the key commuter villages close to Cambridge. Sitting in the centre of superb mature plot of 0.61 acres Bag End is a handsome property dating back to the 1930's that has undergone extensive renovation and refurbishment over recent years.

The property internally is every bit as attractive as the striking external appearance. There is a wonderful sense of arrival just stepping into the entrance hall with the contrast of the light oak flooring and the dark wood panelling on the main stair case. The reception rooms flow neatly from the central hall with the formal sitting room to the left with its magnificent bay window and inset fire place. A turn to the right would bring you through to hub of the house with the open plan family room, dining area and kitchen. Double doors and wide span of floor to ceiling windows give the first glimpse of the beautiful gardens and also bring huge levels of natural light into the house. The open archway to the kitchen again maintains the flow and make it a highly sociable hub as well as the perfect set up for entertaining guests. There is a separate utility room off the kitchen with its own external access, ideal for bringing the shopping directly into the kitchen.

Upstairs sees a magnificent master bedroom suite with walk in shower and separate dressing room. Four further bedrooms peel off from the main landing with a family bathroom and separate WC. Each room is spacious, bright and well finished making this a very well balanced family home.

Whittlesford is a charming village with a thriving community with many annual events, an activesocial club and a village green with tennis courts. Royston Road is located on the edge of the village and Bag End is set back from the road with its own private gated entrance.

All the local amenities that this popular village has to offer such as the village shop and post office, a vet and the 3 village pubs which includes the renowned Tickell Arms with its popular restaurant are all close at hand. For schooling requirements, there is a playgroup and primary school in the village and it is within the catchment area for the well-regarded Sawston Village College. For the commuter, Whittlesford is superbly located for the M11 to London, Stansted Airport and the M25 and to the A14 and A1. The railway station provides a frequent and fast rail service into London Liverpool Street (60 mins) and into Cambridge (14 mins).

The property is approached through electric security gates that leads to an open gravel driveway and parking area. To the right a newly constructed double garage with electric up and over doors can be found. To the left an expanse of lawn with planted borders and a neat box hedge with paved steps leading to the front door.

The rear gardens are simply special. One could be forgiven for forgetting where they were. Mature tress including some magnificent pine trees, colourful, raised flower beds planted with a variety of shrubs and plants that now form a spectacular mature and well shielded expanse of lawn.

Immediately to the rear of the house is an area of paving that sweeps around the house. A wooden pergola with seating beneath (seating not included) that highlights the versatility of the space and is a superb spot to enjoy the evening sun.

In all the gardens extend to 0.61 acres and are a major factor in the magnificence of this wonderful home.


To the rear of the property an adjoining building, currently used as a music room and storage can be found. This has a number of possible uses although some upgrading would be required if the intention was to incorporate it within the main house. The former stable block has also been retained and is used for storing the necessary gardening tools.
