Orchard Street is a no-through-lane and the house is the very last on the street, placing it away from any passing traffic. The gardens adjoin paddocks and look out to farmland belonging to the Quy estate giving it a wonderfully rural feel for such a convenient location. Both the paddocks and farmland are within the greenbelt and outside the village framework, giving them two layers of protection from any future development.

The house has been carefully restored and extended by the current owners, who have previously won an award for restoration and conservation. It beautifully retains its period warmth and elegance and provides 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms (2 with working fireplaces), a large kitchen, separate utility room, walk through larder/ storage room and a spacious, welcoming reception hallway in the main house.

The annexe is attached and can be accessed via the main house or can be completely separated and entered into via it’s own front door and hallway, therefore providing flexible accommodation options. It provides completely self contained accommodation: a double bedroom with views across the garden and fields beyond, an ensuite shower room, open plan living/ dining and kitchen, which is handmade with granite surfaces. It also boasts an open brick fireplace.

The annexe is currently let for £1000 per month but can easily be used as part of the main house or as a home office. The annexe was also once a Tourist Board 4 star awarded self-catering let/ Bed and Breakfast.

All of the reception rooms in the main house face south-west across the garden into the afternoon and evening sun.

Limestone, brick and solid oak floors can be found throughout this family home.

There is a double cartlodge providing covered parking for 2 cars and a driveway for a further four cars. Doors could easily be placed on the cartlodge if anyone desired for this to be a closed garage.

The garden wraps around the house on two sides, is partially walled, mainly laid to lawn with mature beds and hedging, and benefits from all day sun. A large metal garden shed is nicely tucked away providing extra storage.

This property is owned by a member of the Cooke Curtis and Co team.

Stow-cum-Quy is the first village over the A14 heading east from the city.

The village has various amenities including a village hall, shop/post office, 2 public houses, church, hotel with spa and gym. A cycle route which passes under the A14, takes you directly into the city.

Much of the land around the village is owned by the Quy estate and public and permissive footpaths give excellent access out into the countryside including Quy Fen nature reserve. The National Trust’s Anglesey Abbey is at neighbouring Lode.

Schooling provision is available in the nearby village of Bottisham. Local bus routes also provide frequent access into the city centre, both Cambridge North and central railway stations are less than 5 miles away. The Newmarket Road and Milton Park & Rides are also only a few minutes away.
