Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This converted former railway gate house dating from the 1860s -1900s when there was a railway line between Wisbech & Sutton Bridge, is located in a secluded position at the end of a country lane on the boundary of the River Nene bank and originally would have fronted onto the railway line & riverside, but as the railway line closed in circa 1959 the property is now only accessed via what would have been the rear off Bledwick Drove (off the A1101 Sutton Road), although there is a gate at the end of the lane giving access onto the river bank (ideal for taking walks on the doorstep).
The property has benefited from some refurbishment by both the current and past owners with some original & also reclaimed character features being reinstated such as period fireplaces, internal doors and exposed wooden floor boards.
Due to the layout of the property it could potentially be used as either a 2, 3 or 4 bedroom property subject to how a buyer wishes to use the rooms we have named as the dining room & study.
On a generous plot of approx.1/4 acre (sts) secluded by the mature trees and shrubs surrounding the borders and with the majority of the grounds situated to what is formerly the rear of the property laid with granite chippings as set as a mature orchard with a variety of fruit trees and a walnut tree.
An internal viewing is strongly advised for a true perspective of the position of the property & all that it offers.
