Originating from 1905, the original cottage has been significantly extended to the rear and left-hand side by the current owners to create an exceptional four-bedroom family home. The property has been significantly improved in terms of energy efficiency by the addition of solar panels, upgraded boiler, underfloor heating and increased insulation. Located near the centre of the village, Cottenham Road provides easy access to local amenities, fantastic schooling and open green space.
In a little more detail, the ground floor accommodation comprises porch, reception area separated by reclaimed oak beams, spacious living room with a cast iron wood burner and opening into the extended section of the house. Beyond, the dining room has stairs rising to the first floor and enjoys a high degree of natural light, made possible by the vaulted ceilings, with the utility located just off. Moving through, the kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with dark blue cabinetry, twin Neff ovens, Neff induction hob with extractor over, AEG fridge and freezer, AEG dishwasher, microwave, Franke sink, composite marble look worktops and there are bifold doors creating pleasant views over the rear garden. Upstairs, the master suite benefits from stylish ensuite shower room, dressing area and Juliet balcony overlooking the garden and fields beyond. The two remaining bedrooms are both generous double rooms and the family bathroom has been finished to a high standard with integrated extras including smart mirror.
To the front of the property, there is handy gravelled area for driveway parking and gated access to the left side. At the rear, there is a self-contained one-bedroom annexe with fitted kitchen, living space and private shower room. There is also a detached home office/summer house with bi-folding doors overlooking the patio/hot tub area. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and bordered with mature trees, shrubs and planted beds.
