Full description

Woodpecker House sits in 3.5 acres of the most picturesque gardens, but also in a position that is beyond comparison for any golfer. Overlooking the 9th hole of the nationally acclaimed Royal Worlington & Newmarket Golf Club, this magnificent house sits proud and pristine.
The house itself is every bit as impressive as the surroundings. The internal accommodation has been the subject of a wonderful renovation that has combined incredible attention to detail and significant expenditure to form the current home that stands today. In an era where open plan living is increasingly popular, Woodpecker House was ahead of the curve. The kitchen, dining room and breakfast area flows seamlessly and benefits from magnificent views with doors opening out across the gardens towards the golf club. The kitchen is fitted with integral Bosch appliances, inset into bespoke, fitted, Shaker style kitchen with solid Iroko and granite work surface and granite breakfast bar. One of the most incredible features of the house is that every room appears to enjoy a special view. The Conservatory looks long across the parkland setting. Bedroom 2 has double doors that open out directly onto the gardens and also benefits from a well appointed en suite bathroom.
The accommodation spans two floors with two ground floor bedrooms and two first floor bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is beyond generous in size and has a magnificent en-suite bathroom. The bathrooms again highlight the quality throughout the house, with beautiful travertine floors, spacious showers and contemporary sanitary ware.

Woodpecker House is set in arguably the most prestigious plot, overlooking the 9th Green of Royal Worlington & Newmarket Golf Club. Worlington is a very popular village on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border, well known as the home of the Royal Worlington & Newmarket Golf Club. Just eight miles away, the town of Newmarket offers a good range of amenities including schools, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and leisure facilities, including health clubs, a swimming pool and golf club. As well as the famous race days at Newmarket they also host a number of well attended concerts. The city of Ely and the University City of Cambridge offer a wider range of amenities. Worlington is commutable to Cambridge with its burgeoning high tech industries including the imminent establishment of AstraZeneca's Global Headquarters, science parks, excellent schools and City airport. There is excellent access to the A14 and A11 (M11). There is a branch line connection from Newmarket to Cambridge and Ipswich. Cambridge, Ely and Norwich offer direct rail lines into London, with services from Cambridge to Kings Cross in 45 minutes, Ely to Kings cross in 1hr and 10 minutes and from Ely to Ipswich in just under an hour. Local trains from Kennet (3.5 miles away) to Cambridge take 22 minutes. Stansted International Airport is approximately forty miles away, as is Norwich Airport.

The grounds at Woodpecker House are intriguing. A winding driveway through mature trees approaches this magnificent property, leading to sweeping gravel driveway to the front and side. 3.5 acres of parkland that has been carefully crafted and opened out to take full advantage of the beautiful surroundings. A triple garage with attached worktop complete with oversized remote controlled roller shutter doors, alarm system, car maintenance pit and roof storage sits just behind the house alongside a greenhouse and various wood sheds and garden stores.
From the conservatory a large expanse of patio creates a superb environment for al fresco dining and sitting beside the heated outdoor pool, a great area for summer entertainment.
The maturity of the gardens ensures privacy and protection. It is hard to replicate such tranquillity and quality in one setting.
