This beautiful detached extended period cottage enjoys a tranquil position, tucked away within wonderful gardens and grounds of about 0.32 acres and located centrally within this highly sought after village. The current owner has recently reconfigured the property and lovingly refurbished throughout, resulting in extremely well planned and stylishly presented accommodation. The property further boasts a recently constructed external office/studio, nestled in mature gardens and making it an ideal place to work from home or pursue a hobby. There is ample parking, a detached double garage and an outbuilding housing a gardeners wc /boot room and seperate utility room
The accommodation comprises a spacious welcoming reception hall with flagstone slate flooring with heating under, bespoke staircase to first floor and a cloakroom wc just off. The dual aspect dining room (which could equally be used as a sitting room) is an elegantly proportioned room at the centre of the home with Inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove, exposed timber beams and solid wood flooring. Beyond and accessed by an inner hallway is an office/playroom also floored with solid oak and with stairs rising to the first floor accommodation; this again enjoys a bright dual aspect and leads finally to a triple aspect spacious sitting room, used as a tv snug, with bespoke book shelving and flagstone flooring. The kitchen/breakfast/family room at the garden end of the house is very much the heart of this wonderful home and with its bi-fold doors to rear and side aspect, this room is bathed in natural light. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke cabinetry including larder cupboard, ample quartz working surfaces with inset double sink, a central island/breakfast bar also with quartz top and the electric Aga takes centre stage, though there is underfloor heating to use when the Aga is slumbering or off. There are a range of integral Siemens appliances including an induction hob, oven for summer use, extractor, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, all complemented by engineered oak floor with heating under.
On the first floor, off the secondary landing are two good sized bedrooms including the guest bedroom with en suite facilities, and a family bathroom, both with heated towel rails. The master bedroom is located off the primary landing. This is a large spacious dual aspect room with a range of bespoke fitted wardrobes and shoe cupboarding, and has French doors to a Juliet balcony, taking advantage of the views over the garden. It is adjacent to a luxury refitted shower room serving as an en suite with underfloor heating and heated towel rail, and also off the landing is the last of the four bedrooms, currently used as a music room.
Outside, the property is set back from the road and completely screened, accessed via a 5 bar gate which leads to the generous gravelled parking area, easily accommodating four vehicles. The detached double garage has an electric up and over door with power and light connected. The rear garden has beautiful mature trees and is laid mainly to lawns with flower and shrub borders and beds. There is a newly planted rose garden, vegetable and herb garden, fruit trees and a wide and varied selection of other trees and bushes, and all enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion. The whole house has been wired with wifi boosters to ensure fibre optic broadband is available in every room including the studio/office.
Thriplow is justifiably one of South Cambridgeshire’s most eagerly sought after villages located in a delightfully rural environment surrounded by open undulating countryside yet only 8 miles south of Cambridge and 6 miles north of Royston. The village is home to a highly regarded primary school and pre-school, pub and shop and hosts the Thriplow Daffodil Weekend annually. The elevated church, village green and cricket pitch make Thriplow a wonderfully picturesque place to live.
