LOCATION Knapwell is a desirable village which is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and is conveniently placed approximately 10 miles west of Cambridge, just a short drive from the expanding modern town of Cambourne, and within easy reach of major routes including the A14 and A428. There are a range of local amenities including local pubs and restaurants, a local bus route and a variety of walking routes through ancient woodlands.

OUTSIDE The grounds of the property total 3.69 acres and comprise varying areas of lawns and mature woodland, which surround the property and are bordered by the nature reserve and a brook. In addition to the gardens that immediately border the house and outbuildings (3.17 acres). There is a further area of woodland on the opposite side of the private access road which is included within the total area. The land backs on to a nature reserve which enhances the private and tranquil feel of the property. 

THE COTTAGE Believed to date from 1666, the building is of historic timber frame and rendered construction beneath a pitched thatch roof. It is understood to have been the original property on the plot but is now in need of significant refurbishment.

Accommodation comprising:
Ground floor: 2 reception rooms, utility/cloakroom with w.c. and a pair of wash hand basins.
First floor: further reception room with small window to side. 

THE PAVILLION Located to the side of the cottage, the brick built structure has a pair of dressing rooms, a total of 4 WC's and wash hand basins, and was originally used by the family as a changing facility when playing sport within the grounds. 

BARN/STORE Located towards the rear of the plot, the barn has a gross internal area of approximately 88m²(945ft²) and is of brick panel construction beneath a corrugated roof with garage doors. 

GARAGE BLOCK The property benefits from a garage block at the front of the plot adjacent to Church Lane, sunk into the bank and bordering the private access road. The concrete structure has a flat roof and offers parking for 4 cars, storage and a turning area.

The property and various out-buildings are all in need of some refurbishment but offer wonderful opportunities for significant accommodation space and may lend themselves to extension (subject to planning permission). None of the buildings are listed, but the mound and moated site in the north east of the plot are classed as a scheduled monument.
