The Property
Viewmore is a detached cottage offering potential to extend or with full planning permission for a replacement dwelling of 1,895 sq ft with an option to increase to 2,613 sq ft, within an overall site of approximately 1.3 acres adjoining paddocks and open countryside. Kirtling is a village where the current planning policy is allowing further development, therefore the property may well be suitable for alternative proposals utilising the gardens and grounds. Interested parties should make the necessary enquiries with East Cambridgeshire District Council.

Built in 1937, Viewmore has painted brick elevations under a pantiled roof with oil fired central heating. The current layout of the cottage incorporates a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. The property also has full planning permission (15/00307/FUL) to demolish the existing dwelling and associated outbuildings and replace the dwelling with a large contemporary 2,325 sq ft house designed to suit modern living requirements.

Planning permission has been granted for a modern take on the traditional 'long house' that can be seen throughout Suffolk with their steeply pitched roofs and lengthy design. The new 'long house' was planned with the use of a mixture of regional materials in mind, including terracotta roof tiles, red brick Flemish bond brickwork and lime mortar. The design achieves its ambition to be highly contextual and recognisable as a Suffolk/Cambridgshire house, but also of its time and inspiring to the village plan. It is generous and outward looking but also intimate and warm, with high levels of energy efficiency. It is designed with large windows which allows light to filter into the house at different times of day, framing the wonderful rural views and providing warmth and also coolness when needed. The large windows were also designed from the inside out, giving you the best light and views whilst you are inside. Also inside, the series of rooms have their own identities (a kitchen, a playroom, a sitting room) but with circular interlinking spaces providing flow. All the utilities (plant room, larder, utility room, boot room) are sited in the 'pods' allowing for living where living should be, in the heart of the home. The clients wanted a simple, modest build with potential to add to in the future and a building that would weather well, require little or no maintenance and minimal energy to run.

Viewmore has a pair of five bar wooden gates leading to a driveway providing turning and parking for several vehicles and access to the detached home office/store and grounds. The generously sized grounds back on to paddocks and are enclosed by hedging and post and rail fencing. The garden has a manicured lawn, well stocked flower and shrub beds, large paved terrace, garden shed, outside lighting and tap.

The Location
Viewmore occupies a sought after central village location, with local footpaths and bridleways making it ideal for horse riders and dog walkers. This popular village has a village hall, public house, cricket ground and two churches and is surrounded by undulating Suffolk/Cambridgeshire countryside. The nearby horseracing 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.

There is a branch line connection from Newmarket to Cambridge and Ipswich. Cambridge, Audley End and Whittlesford offer direct rail lines into London, with the fastest trains taking under one hour.
