The Property
Wonderfully sized four bedroom individual detached residence set upon a plot of approximately one third of an acre.

Travel North along the lengthy straight Fenland road from the village of Nordelph, and you will find this impressive home positioned to the right hand side, commanding impressive far reaching open countryside views to the West. Sitting behind fencing and a sweeping semi-circular driveway, the tall brick elevations are complimented by many multi pane windows – which take full advantage of the wonderful views, and allow for natural light to pour inside.
The internal spaces are arranged over two floors, decorated in a light manner to further enhance this bright interior. The living accommodation, which stretches to over 2000sq ft, briefly comprises wide entrance hall, double aspect study/dining room, cloakroom, spacious fully fitted kitchen dining room with a separate utility room, large sitting room with wood burning stove and direct access to the rear garden, master bedroom suite with walk in wardrobes and ensuite facilities, three further double bedrooms – two with built in wardrobes – and a family bathroom with separate shower.
A large detached double garage sits well back behind the property in the rear garden, and makes for a wonderful workshop if one wished.
The rear gardens are a pleasure to explore, and cater for both those who wish to entertain, and those who wish to grow. With decking, a patio and a generous lawn, all combine to make for a wonderful space in which to relax. An area set aside for fruit trees and home growing can be found at the far end – which all combined makes for approximately one third of an acre
Two large timber sheds are positioned within the gardens, and given that vehicular access can be gained to them, perhaps with a little tweaking they could accommodate a small pony.
