GET AWAY FROM IT ALL TO THIS QUIET, PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL HAMLET, YET WITHIN A SHORT DRIVE OF THE THRIVING UNIVERSITY CITY OF CAMBRIDGE. This substantial and skilfully designed residence is set in grounds of approximately 1.65 acres, which would allow equestrian usage.

A very impressive, detached home offering accommodation of approximately 3,250 sq.ft., built in 2006 by Brian Graves of Oakhouse Homes Limited. There is quality throughout, including underfloor heating to the ground floor with solid oak flooring, double-glazed windows, oak entrance porches, wiring for high-spec audio visual entertainment systems, excellent master bedroom suite with large bathroom and dressing area, guest bedroom with en-suite shower room and further family bathroom. With numerous reception rooms, there is flexible accommodation. Externally, there is a fantastic large paved terrace for entertainment and large grounds that would be ideal for equestrian usage. With a large parking area and double garage, this is an EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTY AND ONE NOT TO BE MISSED!

Shudy Camps is a beautiful, peaceful hamlet surrounded by open rolling countryside, ideal for long walks, with an historic parish church. There is primary schooling at close-by Castle Camps and secondary schooling at neighbouring Linton, with alternative nearby preparatory, primary and secondary schooling, including fine private schooling, at nearby Saffron Walden. The fine old market town of Saffron Walden is approximately 8 miles to the south-east for further shopping, recreational and educational facilities. Sainsbury's superstore at Haverhill is just four miles distance, with the thriving employment centre of Cambridge within 12 miles. Railway stations, with trains to Liverpool Street and the M11 access points are within easy reach. Stansted Airport is within a 25 minute drive.

Take the Ashdon Road out of town, passing through the village of Ashdon and on into Bartlow. At the crossroads turn right towards the Camps and after approximately a mile, take the left turning towards Shudy Camps. The property will be found within approximately half-a-mile on the left-hand side.

The property is approached via a 5-bar gate leading to an extensive gravelled driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles, leading to the DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE (19'5" x 18'2"), weatherboarded, with twin electronically operated doors, light and power, overhead storage and personal door to side access. There is a lawned area, flower beds and hedgerow to the front and immediately to the rear of the property, accessed via a 5-bar gate, there is a large paved terrace, which is a fantastic feature, being accessed from different part of the property - great for entertaining and taking advantage of favourable weather. There is a covered porch at the rear and steps up to the lawned area, enclosed by mature hedges. The paddock is around one acre, with vehicular access and water supply and would easily lend itself to equestrian usage. It would also be great to have a wild garden and for adventurous children. There is a garden shed and quality greenhouse.
