As well as having a local primary school nearby, the property also falls within the catchment area of the highly regarded Swavesey Village College secondary school. Local facilities and amenities include a community and conference centre, modern sporting facilities, two public houses and a local shop.

Arranged over 2 floors, 15 Overcote Road offers incredibly stylish and spacious accommodation which is ideally suited to family occupation. The extraordinary bespoke internal oak frame sets the tone for the high quality of craftsmanship which is present throughout this impressive property. Set within a generous plot of approximately a third of an acre, the property is situated in an enviable spot on the edge of the village backing onto open fields, just a mile away from the banks of the picturesque River Great Ouse.

The accommodation comprises 5 large bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, triple aspect sitting room, dining room, impressive kitchen/breakfast room, games room, study, utility and downstairs cloakroom. Bedroom 5 has the benefit of en suite bathroom and separate sitting room and would make a superb guest suite without alteration.

On the ground floor, the bright and airy, triple aspect sitting room is particularly generous in size and is complemented by a splendid open inglenook fireplace. Located at the rear of the property, this room is perfect for everyday use, however, also provides a fantastic entertaining space with views over the stunning landscaped rear garden and access onto the rear terrace. The kitchen / breakfast room flows beautifully into the entrance hall and open-plan dining space opposite which creates a great social / reception area.

On the first floor, there are 5 large double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in total, 3 of which are en suite. The master suite, which is notably the most spacious bedroom in the house has ample space for a super king-sized bed and is well-equipped with a large walk-in wardrobe / dressing room and en suite bathroom. It has been thoughtfully designed with a vaulted ceiling to fully appreciate the substantial and impressive, hand-crafted oak frame and is situated at the rear of the property with a dual aspect which provides an abundance of natural light and views over the rear garden and beyond.

The property is approached via a large shingle driveway which leads to ample parking in front of the property and a double garage. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedges and trees. There is a paved terraced across the rear of the property which is perfect for Al Fresco dining and an enclosed children’s play area with sunken trampoline tucked away at the end of the garden.
