Positioned on a small and select executive development, no 10 is tucked away at the head of a private cul de sac and offers an easy, free flowing layout of just over 3500sqft, ideal for modern day living. Being located just off the A142 it offers excellent commuter access into Cambridge, Peterborough or Huntingdon.

Benefitting from quality UPVC double glazed sash windows, underfloor heating - water fed - to the ground floor, security alarm with external lighting.

Pulling up onto the large driveway which can easily accommodate numerous cars, you notice how quiet it is as soon as you step out of your car. As you approach the large front door let your journey begin.


Welcoming ENTRANCE HALL which is wide and inviting and generates the feeling of space as soon as you step inside. The house "flows" very easily with doors leading off, giving independent access into the principal ground floor rooms. A solid wood, dog leg balustrade staircase rises to the first floor with useful under stairs recess and additional storage area

The CLOAKROOM is of good size and comprises a concealed low level flush WC and vanity wash hand basin. Ample room to store coats and shoes too.

Double doors lead off the entrance hall into the SITTING ROOM which is bathed in ample natural light and overlooks the front with two low windows. In the absence of radiators, the walls are free to make it easier to place your furniture the way you prefer.

Further double doors give direct access into the FITTED OPEN PLAN LIVING DINING KITCHEN, This really does have the wow factor and it is obvious that this would be the "hub" of anyone's house. Spanning 40ft - the whole width of the house - this space allows you to choose the placement of your furniture, giving you the flexibility to divide the room into areas, which can then be altered as your needs change and your family grows up. With two tri-fold doors giving access onto the garden, the room is again bathed with ample natural light and is delightful to work or sit in, even on a dull dreary day. A door provides an alternative access returning to the entrance hall. The KITCHEN area has been fitted with a comprehensive range of storage units with soft close doors, ample work surfaces, complimented by a large centralised work station with built-in one and half sink unit. Accompanied by twin built in NEFF ovens with matching five ring NEFF hob and extractor fan the kitchen is ideal for the keenest of chefs or meeting the demands of everyday family life. Leading off the kitchen is a large

UTILITY / LAUNDRY ROOM With built in dishwasher and upright fridge freezer. The wall mounted boiler provides domestic hot water and heating and a door gives side access to the rear - ideal if you have a dog.

Returning to the entrance hall there is a FAMILY ROOM just off, which is of good size and has views over the front with two low windows.

The galleried, balustrade landing is of excellent size and certainly duplicates the feeling of space as of down stairs. Doors lead of to all the rooms and there is access to the loft.

The MASTER BEDROOM SUITE really is delightful, and you will surely be impressed with the size. With two low windows overlooking the front and fields beyond, the BEDROOM is lovely and light. There is no need for wardrobes, as there is a large WALK-IN DRESSING ROOM which has been fitted with an array of shelving and rails. Not to forget, the ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM which is also of good size and comprises a double walk in shower cubicle, low level flush WC, vanity wash hand basin, heated chrome "ladder style" towel rail and a window to the side.

Moving across the landing the GUEST BEDROOM is equally impressive as the Master suite. The BEDROOM is also lovely and light with two windows to the front, enjoying field views. A WALK-IN DRESSING ROOM has been fitted with shelves and railing. The ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM follows the theme of the master suite and comprises a double walk in shower cubicle, low level flush WC and vanity wash hand basin, heated chrome "ladder style" towel rail and a window to the side.

There are three further double bedrooms with BEDROOMS THREE, FOUR AND FIVE, across the back. All benefit from a double WALK-IN CLOSET and offer views over the large rear garden and the fields beyond.

Plenty of room for family and visitors to park their cars with a large shaped driveway, block paved edging and hard standing area, and additional turning bay, shaped lawns and fencing to the side boundary with gated access either side to the rear garden.

GARAGE BLOCK - As fewer and fewer people put their car in a garage, this was designed as a large triple garage but made to replicate the ease of a modern day CARTLODGE. Benefit from the protection that a garage offers you and your car when getting in and out, without the inconvenience of opening and closing garage doors. There are two DRIVE IN car parking bays with the third being fully enclosed with a garage up and over door and electric light and power.

Access from an external staircase, the GARAGE ATTIC has been built as a work studio, but could be used as music room or teenager suite.

Being of excellent size, the rear garden benefits from a distressed, multi coloured paved patio area and is predominantly laid with grass seed. The garden is not directly overlooked from behind and backs onto open fields.

This attractive property sits in a peaceful village location where the owners would enjoy views of the countryside on the edge of Doddington, not too far from larger towns such as March and Chatteris. The quiet village is served by a good range of local amenities including a primary school (recently classified as outstanding by Ofsted), charming public house, village store/post office, traditional fish and chip shop, surgery, and walk-in hospital. St Marys Church is in the heart of the village and dates back to the 16th Century.

The nearby towns of March and Chatteris offer a wide range of local facilities including shopping, hotels, restaurants, schools and leisure facilities, with health clubs, swimming pools and a golf club. March also benefits from its own train station, with regular services to Cambridge and Peterborough. For the London commuter, there are fast and regular mainline rail services from March, to London Liverpool Street and Kings Cross. The city of Ely is approximately twenty minutes away via car and has further excellent schooling, including the renowned King's School.
