Surrounded by open countryside only one mile north from the centre of the village of Haddenham, the property is set well back from the road and approached via a long gravelled driveway opening into an extensive parking/turning area. It is a lovely spot only about 30 minutes by car from Cambridge and approximately 15 minutes from Ely both of which offer a London train service. There are good local facilities in nearby Haddenham including a primary school, post office, 2 shops (1 with chemist), doctor’s surgery, butchers, take-away restaurant, 2 public houses, as well as an art gallery/studio which holds regular exhibitions.

This most appealing home dating from the early 19th Century has been extensively renovated and sympathetically extended. It is very tastefully presented throughout and offers well-proportioned, versatile living accommodation which is ideal for family occupation and retains a good deal of original character such as beautiful sash windows, exposed floorboards and fireplaces.

The downstairs accommodation briefly comprises large entrance hall, sitting room, study, dining room, kitchen and utility room. The farm house kitchen/breakfast room is well laid out with a range of fitted and freestanding units, cream Aga and a large walk-in pantry. Traditional terracotta tiles cover the kitchen floor which leads through to the dining room with exposed wooden floor boards and fire place (not currently in use). The sitting room is a particularly notable and impressive room, with 2 large sash windows providing pleasant views over the terrace and garden. In keeping with the rest of the house, the sitting room is tastefully decorated with exposed wooden floor boards and large open fire place.

Upstairs there are 5 double bedrooms of excellent proportions. The spacious master bedroom with en-suite overlooks the wonderful terrace and pergola. There are 2 additional bathrooms. The main family bathroom is very well appointed with period fittings comprising W.C., bidet, pedestal hand wash basin and a charming free standing roll top bath with claw and ball feet.

In addition to the main property there is a separate bungalow (which is currently let on a Shorthold Tenancy with optional* vacant possession available on completion of the sale) and a sizeable open fronted cart-lodge/barn with an appealing studio/games room over which has electricity and central heating.

*Please note that the current tenant has expressed an interest in remaining should the option arise. A good income is currently received from this.

The gardens are a major feature of the property with extensive lawns, numerous established trees and shrubs which include a variety of fruit trees such as apple, crab apple, damson and plum. The garden also enjoys formal and informal flower beds, a formal vegetable garden, green house and paved terraces surrounded with open views to the front. There is a large drive way which leads to the house as well as plenty of parking with a garage to the side of the house. The open fronted cart lodge also provides parking for 2 cars.

In order to appreciate its many special qualities a detailed inspection of the property is highly recommended.
