Ensum Brown are delighted to offer sale this stunning period home, dating back to 1910, located in the heart of the popular village of Bassingbourn and close to all the local amenities. This former schoolhouse is full of character and charm thanks to the retention of many period features including a magnificent Inglenook fireplace. This home is a fantastic combination of old and new, with some contemporary and sympathetic updates that means you can move straight it.
Approaching the property, you will find it nicely set back from the road with a wall surrounding the front garden and with gated access to a gravelled driveway that leads to a detached garage. This timber garage has power and light connected and could even be a great workshop or home office perhaps if preferred. Like the property itself, there is a great degree of flexibility.
Entering the property itself, into the hallway, you have a reception room either side to the front of similar proportions. The lounge has the before mentioned Inglenook fireplace with timber bressummer and housing a wood burning stove and a sitting room is located to the opposite side. To the rear, you have a modern and light kitchen breakfast room with space for all of the appliances you could desire in the modern home. This includes an eye level double oven, electric induction hob with extractor over, dishwasher and two fridges. The room is completed to a stunning specification with limestone flooring, tiled splash backs, inset ceiling spotlights and with a pantry storage cupboard that doubles up as a utility room with storage and plumbing for a washing machine. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a formal dining room with complete flexibility of use and with doors opening to the rear garden and ground floor cloakroom.
Going to the first floor this home continues to impress. Off the landing you have three bedrooms, two very good double bedrooms and a good-sized single bedroom or even could be a small double. The master bedroom has a feature fireplace and also with its own en-suite shower room. The other two bedrooms have the use of a luxury re-fitted family bathroom with roll top bath, walk in shower with rain head shower and glass screen, twin wash hand basins and a w.c. Once again, completed with no expenses spared with tiled flooring, tiled walls and inset ceiling spotlights, it's simply stunning.
Outside, to the rear, you have an enclosed garden that benefits from a high degree of privacy. The garden has been landscaped with ease of maintenance and feels like a real country cottage garden. Partly laid to lawn with flower and shrub planting, a paved patio area and decking area to benefit from the sun all day around. Also, with side access and an access door into the rear of the garage.
