Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this beautiful detached part thatched property, nestled within the highly sought after village of Steeple Morden. This lovely period home has previously been sympathetically extended and enjoys a wealth of stunning features, including from a non-estate location, 3 reception rooms, 3 bedrooms, a conservatory, a carport and driveway parking, and beautiful field views.

This gorgeous cottage is tucked back from the road, nestled behind mature hedgerows and shrubs, and on approach, visitors can just see the pretty thatch roof, light cream frontage, and peg tiled pitched roof which makes up a sympathetic extension. The wide driveway and carport have enough space for several vehicles, and there is a well kept front garden leading up to the front door.

The cottage has been well priced to reflect its offering. There is fantastic potential to update further, improve and add value. In the coming years a new thatch would be required, some works to rendering and windows would be beneficial. The carport area does potentially offer excellent potential for an enclosed garage or outbuilding if desired. The property is lovely and comfortable for you to move straight in, then deciding what works you wish to carry out and when. Also, the south facing roof of the car port may be a fantastic opportunity to add solar panels and improve your energy efficiency.

Once inside, Lily Cottage continues to offer stunning period features and a warm comfortable atmosphere. The lounge is a fantastically bright room, boasting a dual aspect through 3 windows, and overlooking an enclosed herb garden with sunset views. There’s a wonderful inglenook fireplace with a working fire, exposed beams, a storage cupboard, and stairs to the first floor.

A door leads through to a kitchen with exposed wooden beams, fitted with a range of modern base and wall units, solid oak worktops, tiled flooring, large larder cupboard, integrated dishwasher, and space for a fridge/freezer and large range cooker. There is a wet room adjacent, comprising a shower, WC and hand wash basin, and another door leading through to a beautiful glass conservatory, providing space for further kitchen appliances, a dining table and chairs, as well as access into the rear garden.

The family room is a stunning space to sit and unwind, with a high vaulted ceiling, a large window to the rear and French doors to the side garden. This beautiful room boasts an exposed brick wall, reclaimed parquet flooring, a wood-burning stove, vast amounts of space for a variety of furniture, as well as stairs to a versatile mezzanine floor.

Upstairs to the first floor, Lily Cottage offers further accommodation with lovely countryside views from each window.

Residents can enjoy getting back to nature with many country walks, a variety of local social activities, and a traditional village pub, dating back to the 17th century.

The Church of St. Peter and St. Paul was rebuilt in the 13th century and is how Steeple Morden acquired its name, comprising an aisled nave, steepled south porch and chancel. The church is part of the local group of Parishes in South Cambridgeshire, enjoying regular services and social events.

Steeple Morden benefits from a village hall, which is available for hire, a post office, a garage, a highly-regarded primary school, and a railway station just 2.5 miles away, providing direct links to both Cambridge and London Kings Cross. Further amenities are a stone’s throw away in Royston, such as a leisure centre and a variety of sports clubs, including the golf club on Royston Heath. There are a variety of excellent schools to choose from, doctors and dentist surgeries, shops and supermarkets, all surrounded by beautiful countryside and many other pretty villages to explore.

Steeple Morden’s proximity to Royston also means residents benefit from further excellent transport links, with a mainline train station offering regular fast services to both Cambridge and London Kings Cross. The A1M and M11 are within a 15-minute drive via the A10/A505, and London Stansted and Luton Airports are both 30-minutes away.
