An individual detached house of 1710 sqft / 158 sqm, peacefully secluded along a private drive close to the village school.

The house stands nicely secluded on a short private drive of five detached properties off Leaden Hill, itself a private no-through-road that terminates in a public footpath out into the surrounding fields. The local primary school is a few minutes’ walk away at the junction of Town Green Road and the shop and pub just a little further up.

The house is bright and generous throughout, starting with an impressive hallway with a cloakroom off and two spacious living rooms, one either side of the house. The kitchen / breakfast room runs along the back and opens into a conservatory.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, the largest with an en-suite shower room, plus a bright main bathroom.

A neat hedge separates the property from the close with an opening on to a broad gravel drive that gives lots of parking. There is an established orchard along the south east side of the house that leads round into the rear garden which is lawned and pleasantly private. There is a timber shed that is internally plastered and would not take much to convert to an office.

The position of the house on the plot gives excellent potential to extend or add outbuildings, subject to the necessary consents.

It is very well kept throughout and is double glazed with oil fired central heating to radiators.

Orwell is a lovely, traditional Cambridgeshire village about 7 miles south west of Cambridge and a similar distance north of Royston.

The pretty centre of the village carries very little through traffic and its compact size gives it a close sense of community aided by a thriving primary school, handsome dining pub, general convenience store, post office and hairdresser.

There is a large recreation ground and a Parish Council owned hillside nature reserve that is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. A 15th Century Parish Church overlooks the village and there is a village hall and Methodist Church. There are tennis and football clubs, an am dram society, singing group, gardening group and golf society.

The National Trust’s Wimpole Hall and Home Farm are nearby and can be accessed by a network of footpaths running off Hillside and out into the countryside.

For the commuter the A603 gives easy access into west Cambridge by Barton Road or on to the M11 in about 6 miles. Royston’s mainline station gives access to Kings Cross frequently and as quickly as 35 minutes.
