Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this semi-detached period cottage in a central village location in Fowlmere. This property offers the opportunity to update and add value, benefiting from no upward chain, original period features, 2 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms over 2 floors, and a delightful enclosed garden.

This Grade II listed semi-detached cottage offers excellent kerb appeal in a central village location, with an attractive white frontage, black paint detailing, and pretty bay windows. This period home, believed to date back to the mid 17th century, also enjoys the advantage of being sold with no upward chain and offers future owners the opportunity to update and add further value.

The front door opens up into a nice sized dining space, with a bay window to a front aspect, exposed beams and upstands, an original exposed brick fireplace with a wood-burning stove, pendant and sconce lighting, carpets, stairs to the first floor, and ample space for a large dining setting. The lounge is equally a good sized reception room, with 2 sash windows to a front aspect, exposed beams and upstands, carpets, sconce lighting, and space for lounge and storage furniture.

The kitchen is a bright and airy space, with 3 windows and a door to a dual aspect, allowing in lots of light, a range of units, laminate worktops, herringbone tiled flooring, pendant lighting, tiled splash backs, and space for a variety of large kitchen appliances. There is also a door down to a basement area, with lots of space for storage, as well as a historic underground tunnel!

The Tunnel goes from Hill View Cottage and joins up with several historic properties in the village, with a small central meeting room. It was likely to have been built when Henry VIII created the church of England and was most likely used by Catholics and Protestants as an escape route when persons of authority visited, so as to avoid persecution. It is believed this could be the last remaining access to the tunnel, with others having been sealed off. 

Upstairs to the first floor, this semi-detached period home continues to offer generous accommodation, with 2 double bedrooms, integrated storage, and a large family bathroom comprising a shower, a bath, a WC and a hand wash basin. To the second floor, there are 2 further bedrooms, enjoying original period features.

Outside, to the rear, the garden is a delightful size, fully enclosed by fencing and brick walls and offering a beautiful space to sit, relax and get back to nature. The garden is laid mainly to lawn, with a paved patio area providing lots of space for garden furniture and entertaining guests. There are borders of well-tended flowers, plants and shrubs, and plenty of scope for future owners to put their stamp on things.
