A handsome detached period home, providing 2240 sqft (208 sqm) of high quality accommodation, combining charming late Victorian period features with a superb contemporary extension. The property is set in a picturesque location within the conservation area, and enjoys a private, south-facing garden, backing onto open fields.

The current owners have thoughtfully extended the property while at the same time respecting the original part of the building, adding a wonderfully light, contemporary extension that extends across the rear of the house, and enjoys a southerly aspect with exceptional far-reaching views. They have also added additional bedrooms keeping the accommodation balanced on the ground and first floor.

Set behind an attractive front garden enclosed by a picket fence, the front door is approached over a gravel driveway which provides parking and has an EV charger, and to the side, there is an area of lawn with shrub borders. The front door opens to a welcoming entrance hall with a shower room off, and from here there are doors to the kitchen/dining room and one of the reception rooms. The kitchen/dining room is to the rear of the property and is a wonderful contemporary, dual-aspect room fitted with electric underfloor heating and a range of cabinets set above and below beautiful working surfaces. There is an island providing additional storage with a breakfast bar, and space for a dishwasher, fridge freezer, and a large range cooker. The dining area has bi-fold doors to the side and rear that flood the room with natural light, provide lovely views, and give access to the terrace. The utility room is off the kitchen/dining room and has a second sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine and a door out to the garden.

To the front of the house are two original reception rooms which enjoy many character features. The living/family room is very generously proportioned, has a cosy sitting area set around a beautiful fireplace and there is space for a study area adjacent to double doors that lead through to the kitchen/diner. The sitting room provides a second, cosy, dual-aspect room with a fireplace inset with an electric log burner and another study area overlooking the garden. The sitting and living rooms both have doors to the original front porch and entrance hall, from where the staircase rises to the first floor.

A handsome, detached period home, providing 2240 sqft (208 sqm) of high quality accommodation that seamlessly blends characterful features with a stunning contemporary extension. The property is set in a picturesque location and enjoys a private, south facing garden backing onto open fields.

Outside is a delightful, south-facing rear garden that is laid to lawn, with mature trees, shrubs, and flower borders. There is a patio adjacent to the house and a large shed tucked in the corner. A large patio for sitting/dining is situated at the end of the garden overlooking the field.

The property was fitted with photovoltaic panels in 2021.

Junction 10 of the M11 is only about a mile away and about 20 minutes walk away on the outskirts of the village is its mainline railway station, Whittlesford Parkway, which offers services to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street and makes the village an excellent base for commuting down to London.

Within the village, is a post office and shop, The Tickell Arms pub and restaurant, and The Bees in the Wall pub. There is also The Red Lion Inn and a hotel by the railway station. The village has various societies, clubs, and sports teams and an OFSTED 'Good' primary school that feeds to the OFSTED 'Good' Sawston Village College.
