Avenue House is a detached property, constructed of cavity block, smooth rendered elevations beneath a reed thatched roof. The property has been subject to a refurbishment program, which included replacement timber double glazed windows, re-ridging of the roof, along with a large extension to the rear to create a fabulous timber framed sunroom. The property is set back from the High Street, beyond a tall leylandii hedge and automated gates.

Access is at the back of the house via an entrance hallway with tiled floor. There are three receptions rooms, a study and the main sitting room, having an open fireplace and oak floors. The study and dining room also have oak flooring whilst the latter has double doors leading to a dual aspect family room. There are twin-glazed doors, which connect the dining room to a newly constructed timber framed sunroom with a glazed vaulted roof and underfloor heating. Matching glazed doors also connect to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a triple aspect and Corian worktops along with a range of cream coloured cabinetry and integrated double Miele ovens, Miele fridge/freezer, and an additional drinks fridge along with a Miele induction hob. There is a WC and a utility room, which also has an external entrance along with a boot/cloaks area.

Upstairs, accessed by a wide shallow tread staircase are five double bedrooms, the principal suite has a limed oak floor and now comprises a fabulous walk-through dressing room along with an ensuite bathroom fitted with contemporary sanitaryware comprising twin basins with cabinetry, deep bathtub, and an oversized shower cubicle. There are two further family bath and shower rooms. There is an oil-fired central heating system with external boiler and the accommodation can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plans.

The north-west facing rear garden is enclosed by mainly timber paddock fencing and backs onto University set-aside land with woodland beyond which extends to Madingley Hall. The garden is laid to lawn and has several tall mature trees. To the right is a wide block paved driveway and a double garage, adjacent to which is a cycle/scooter lean-to, large fuel/log store and brick-built workshop. Behind is a large timber garden tool shed. Adjacent to the house is an Indian sandstone paved terrace on which has a powder coated vented gazebo with a mechanical slatted roof.
