Tucked away behind mature hedging and trees, you can easily drive-by and not even notice the property. Within easy walking distance of a variety of local shops, amenities and open fields, ideal for dog walking, but also offering excellent commuter access into Cambridge, either by car, or train with Ely train station being approximately 6 miles away. This also offers access into London's Kings Cross in under 90minutes for those that need to travel further afield.
As the large electric double gates sweep open you drive straight in and are greeted by ample off road parking, ideal for visiting family and friends and there is still additional space for those that have a caravan or trailer or perhaps a large works van. As the gates automatically shut behind you, you become totally absorbed by your surroundings and your eye catches the twisting pathway and Weeping Willow tree overlooking the babbling brook at the bottom of the long private garden.
Offered for sale with NO CHAIN the spacious property has been well maintained and typical of this age house, has plenty of large windows so is bathed in ample natural light throughout. Step inside and let your journey begin.
The welcoming RECEPTION HALL with Wooden floor provides access to all the principal rooms and a balustrade staircase rises to the first floor. Walking into the front SITTING ROOM you are greeted by a wall of light as it enjoys a dual aspect with large windows to the front and side. Many evenings have been spent with family and friends enjoying the roar of the open fire, watching the flames dance. For those wishing to work from home there is a good size ground floor office / hobbies room which over looks the front garden, or it could be used as a FIFTH BEDROOM. Walking across the hallway into the REFITTED KITCHEN BREAKFAST ROOM which also enjoys a dual aspect. It is obvious straight away that this is the hub of the house. Fitted with a comprehensive range of base and eye level storage units, matching Solid Wood work surfaces with inset Belfast Sink with views down the garden, the kitchen easily meets the demand of every day family life. Just off the kitchen is the UTILITY ROOM which has plumbing for washing machine and additional appliance space and a door leading straight out into the garden. The space would also be ideal for a wet dirty dog after a long walk across the nearby fields. The ground floor MASTER BEDROOM enjoys views over the rear garden and has a range of free standing furniture and also benefits from an EN-SUITE SHOWER with a walk-in cubicle, low level flush WC and wash hand basin. The SECOND BEDROOM is also on the ground floor and is of excellent size and looks out over the front garden. The FAMLY BATHROOM has been beautifully refitted and what better place to relax after a hard day at work or a hectic day at home than with a hot soak in the dual ended roll top bath. Complimented by white pattern tiled walls and matching flooring, all for ease of maintenance, and a low level flush WC, wash hand basin and a walk-in shower cubicle.
ON THE FIRST FLOOR The staircase is lovely and light as it benefits from a front facing skylight. The TWO BEDROOMS on the first floor could actually be used as a MASTER SUITE with one being used as a bedroom and the other as a large walk-in dressing room. This is possible as there is also a first floor BATHROOM which could be used as an "EN-SUITE" which comprises a low level flush WC, wash hand basin, panel bath with shower attachment over.
To the front there is ample parking and turning space, making it easy to drive out onto the road. The mature trees to the front give adequate screening from the road. There is a separate detached brick garage with up and over door and personal door to the rear. Two large free standing, matching timber sheds, give ample additional storage space, if you do decide to put a car in the garage. To the rear and side of the garage is a private enclosed garden which could easily be a designated "children's play area" or for those with "green fingers" would be an ideal vegetable garden with access to two lockable brick tool sheds and greenhouse.
The enclosed main garden is predominately laid to lawn with a weaving path leading to a further gated garden which in turn leads down to the brook known locally as Soham Lode, which is rumoured to have Roman Origins. Running for about 7 miles from the River Great Ouse and about 1 mile from its junction with the River Cam. There is a hard standing area over looking the brook, where many evenings have been spent enjoying the evening sun set with glass in hand enjoying the peace and tranquillity which will possibly take you by surprise.
