Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Ellis Winters are delighted to offer Jersey Cottage, a Grade II listed residence located within the heart of the Old Riverport area of the historic market town of St Ives. This charming character home combines modern living with many original features, offers a layout perfect for entertaining and benefits from the convenience of easy walking distance to local amenities and the popular Guided Bus Service.

This Georgian built home offers versatile living accommodation with the ground floor accommodation comprising two adjoining reception rooms, spacious kitchen/dining room, reading room and orangery with bi-fold doors opening onto an enclosed private courtyard.

The spacious well equipped, light and airy kitchen/dining room is fitted with a matching range of base and eye level units with granite workspace over and matching central island with breakfast bar and inset 1 ½ bowl stainless steel sink.

The first-floor accommodation, accessed via two separate staircases, provides four generous bedrooms, a family bathroom with roll top bath and a shower room.

The master bedroom boasts striking original limed wood panelling with storage, a beautiful tiled original fireplace and sash window overlooking the front of the property.

Outside the property offers two individual sheltered court-yard areas, one with raised ponds - allowing the outside areas to link up extremely well with the orangery and opening the complete ground floor area to provide the perfect setting for social entertaining.

From the street Jersey Cottage looks the picture of a historic 18th century two-up two-down townhouse. And it is! But it's not just that. Looks belie what opens up behind the door. The previous owners acquired the property behind and connected the two with an airy sky-lighted sun room to create a unique four bedroom house for our family.

The limed wood panels in the master bedroom are a delight, as are the welcoming original features of the front reception rooms, whilst the bright sun room past the inner courtyard takes us through to our well-equipped kitchen with two bedrooms and shower room above.

The location is perfect for a stroll out the door down to the Quayside for tea and a chat, then onto St Ives Bridge and across the meadows, or in the other direction over the fields along the river. Shops and services are practically on our doorstep. It's only a short step to Waitrose or the Busway stop into Cambridge.

We are only moving because life leads us out of the country, we hope the new owners appreciate the uniqueness of this place as much as we do.
