PROPERTY INSIGHT Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this delightful, Grade II listed, detached period cottage that dates back to the 17th century but has been extended in more recent years to create a home with over 2000sq ft of flexible accommodation that has the perfect combination of period features and modern contemporary finishing. Situated on a generous plot in the quaint village of Whaddon, this property has been superbly maintained and only recently rethatched.

Approaching the property, you will see that there is fantastic curb appeal and when you step in you will not be disappointed. It is ideal that you have two access points, a main front entrance and another side entrance into the boot room of the extended accommodation that is ideal if you have been out for a country walk. From the front entrance you have a lobby before entering the main sitting room, which is full of character with feature wooden beams and a fireplace with wood burning stove as a focal point. The wooden floors are a feature that run through to the separate dining room and this room could easily be used for other purposes as the kitchen has ample space for all your dining needs if preferred.

From the dining room you have a stairway to the main bedroom accommodation. Here you will find three of the four bedrooms in the property and all of which can be double rooms. The second and master bedrooms are certainly very spacious and the master has a built-in wardrobe area. All bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with a white three-piece suite and chrome heated towel rail.

Stepping through to the extended, ground floor, accommodation you have an inner hallway with a downstairs cloakroom off and also a door to an excellent sized study that has double doors leading out to the rear garden, a great place to work from home. To the rear of the property, you have a fantastic open plan kitchen breakfast room, with ample space for a seating area if you wish. This room feels particularly spacious thanks to the part vaulted ceiling. From here you have a separate stairway to the guest accommodation, or perhaps if you have a member of the family that wants their own private space. The double bedroom from this stairway has built in storage and its own en-suite shower room. This of course could be your separate master suite if you prefer.

Going back to the kitchen, this really does feel like the heart of the home. You will find an excellent amount of wall and base level storage with high quality granite work surfaces over. There are many integrated appliances including an oven and further combination microwave oven, 4 plate hob with extractor over, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen is nicely finished with tiled Karndean flooring and feature spotlights. Adjoining the kitchen is a useful utility room, perfect for extra storage and for those noisy appliances.

Going outside this property continues to impress. The generous enclosed garden is mainly lad to lawn with hedge borders, flower beds and mature trees. It has a fantastic feeling of privacy and with fields beyond you do feel part of the open countryside. You will find a summer house to the rear of the garden, which has power and light connected, so you could make great use of this room if you wished. Immediately off the property you have a large paved patio area and access to the rear of the garage, which is a full garage sized door, creating superb access from front to back.

Ensum Brown highly recommend a viewing of this property for full appreciation of both the property itself and the idyllic village location that is close to the town of Royston, city of Cambridge and excellent road and rail links. Read more in our location description.
