Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are delighted to offer a substantial detached property and stunning grounds approaching 5 acres (subject to measured survey) to the market. The property is situated in Walton Highway and is just 9 miles from Watlington mainline station to Ely, Cambridge and London and 13 miles from March station and first hand viewing is essential to see everything this wonderful lifestyle property offers.

The house was purchased in 1990 by the current owners and was very different to the amazing property seen today which has been extended multiple times into a fine 4699 sq. ft. dwelling. The vendor's standards are extremely high and many aspects are bespoke. The house itself has approximately 1.5 acres (stms) of garden grounds including former tennis court, expansive lawn, vegetable garden and pond. Beyond this are further acres set to paddocks and orchard with grounds we understand to total 4.93 acres (stms). The grounds and paddocks are very private offering seclusion to the occupants and livestock with well-defined tree lined boundaries. There is a large pole barn for storage and a separate entrance.

The house itself is set behind a walled front garden and remotely-operated gates, these lead to a welcome area and access to the spacious four-car garage. Inside the house there is a reception hallway, stunning drawing room measuring 8.0m x 6.0m a dining room, study, and open-plan kitchen/breakfast room measuring 6.6m x 4.0m. In addition, there is a large office space which previously held a full-size snooker table and would make a superb family room with store room off. Furthermore there is a wine cellar, WC and sun room with the kitchen having access to a brilliant outdoor covered dining room which the vendors enjoy particularly. Upstairs there are five bedrooms including the very impressive master suite at approximately 50m2 including en-suite with Jacuzzi bath and guest room with two piece en-suite, as well as two family bathrooms.

The house is positioned on a rural lane within ten minutes of the Georgian Market town of Wisbech, with Peterborough being just 26 miles away. 

WALTON HIGHWAY Walpole Highway is located half way between King's Lynn and Wisbech. It has easy access to Peterborough, Downham Market and the coast. There is an excellent primary school and a village post office/shop. The village of Walpole St Peter is approximately two miles away and has a magnificent church, St Peter, 'The Cathedral of the Fens'. It has been described as 'probably one of the finest parish churches in England' and it hosts the famous annual flower festival. The village also has a roller skating rink.
