Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in the heart of this famous and historic town and occupying one of Newmarket's most sought after and desired roads, this former Gate Keepers Cottage which dates back to 1850 is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, yet within a stone's throw of the nation's most famous race course and gallops.

Secluded from the main road, this delightful Victorian residence has undergone a complete and comprehensive transformation. When passing by there is no indication of what lies beyond the large wooden double gates.

As the entry gates widen and you step inside, you are struck by the large amount of parking available and the attractive home that stands in front of you, inviting you inside. The gates shut and you immediately feel safe and secure, ideal if you travel away regularly and wish to "lock up and go".

Stepping inside the welcoming HALLWAY you are greeted by the feeling of space and natural light. The open plan stair rises to the first floor and doors lead off to the HOME OFFICE / HOBBIES ROOM and the ground floor shower room.

The SHOWER ROOM is fitted with a contemporary style suite comprising a low level flush WC, wash hand basin with vanity cupboard and mirror over and large walk-in shower. For ease of maintenance the shower room is fully tiled and for those cold winter mornings has under floor heating.

The old style timber latch doors with wrought iron fittings are a feature throughout the house and blend seamlessly into the free flowing layout.

The OPEN PLAN LIVING / DINING AREA offers flexible living space which leads straight off the ENTRANCE HALLWAY. Being of good size it can easily accommodate a large dining table which is ideal for those lazy evenings entertaining family and friends over for dinner. UPVC double glazed, French doors with full height glazed panels to either side ensure maximum natural light throughout the year.

The SITTING ROOM is a delightful room and is bathed in ample natural light as it benefits from a dual aspect with UPVC box window to the front and two large UPVC windows to the side. The exposed brick fire surround and chimney breast with inset Bressumer are a key feature. Many evenings have been spent with family and friends sat in front of the log burner, watching the flames dance and enjoying the heat and warmth on a cold winter evening.

Walking into the impressive FITTED KITCHEN / BREAKFAST ROOM located to the rear of the house the room again enjoys ample natural light from a triple aspect, with double glazed windows to the side and rear and double French doors leading out onto the garden terrace. Being of excellent size and fitted with a comprehensive range of quality soft close pan drawers and matching wall and base units with solid wood work surfaces above. The centralised work station and breakfast bar is ideal for modern day family life and it is easy to see why this is the "hub" of the house. Fitted with a range of integrated appliances to include Stainless Steel eye level Siemens oven and microwave, fitted fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a further built in wine-fridge. A timber stable door gives further access to the rear patio.

FIRST FLOOR

Open plan tread stairs lead to the first floor LANDING which has a Velux window to the front and doors leading off to all rooms. There is a very handy storage cupboard too.

The MASTER BEDROOM has a window to the side and a feature Victorian fireplace with wooden surround. Door leading to the EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with a contemporary style suite comprising a low level flush WC, vanity wash hand basin, useful storage cupboards and a walk-in corner shower unit and underfloor heating. Further storage includes a clothes hanging rail and large window to the side.

There are TWO further double bedrooms both with built in wardrobes.

The FAMILY BATHROOM is lovely and what better way than to end the day than relaxing in the bath. The tiled flooring with underfloor heating is complimented by the large wall tiles and quality suite which comprises a low level flush WC, wash hand basin and panel bath.

OUTSIDE

The rear garden terrace has been thoughtfully designed and landscaped to ensure minimum maintenance throughout the year. The terrace is not directly over looked from behind and is predominately paved with raised flower and shrub beds to the boundary. Small steps with inset "mood lighting" lead to a slightly elevated dining terrace.
