Whittlesford is a charming riverside village noted for its quality homes lying 7 miles south of Cambridge and 8 or so miles north of Saffron Walden. The village has become a focal point of South Cambridgeshire in recent years with its fast commuter rail service bringing London Liverpool Street within the hour. The village is served by a shop/post office and three public houses, the Tickell Arms, The Bees in the Wall and the Red Lion Hotel. The village has a genuinely thriving community for the young and old. There is a nursery and excellent primary school, active local Scout and Guide groups, gardening and music clubs and lots of village events including a summer ball.There is also an active social atmosphere centred around the Whittlesford Social Club and "The Lawn" which is the village's recreation ground where there are also tennis courts. Communications are excellent with easy access to the A505 and Junction 10 of the M11 is within 2 miles.
The property occupies a pleasant position on the edge of the village which is well served with an excellent primary school, mainline train station and village store. The current owner has transformed the cottage with a programme of expansion and refurbishment resulting in beautifully presented accommodation throughout and all is finished to exacting standards. The heart of this lovely home is the kitchen/dining/family room, a dual aspect room which is bathed in natural light and is fitted with attractive cabinetry, quartz work surfaces with a matching central island/breakfast bar. There is a range of integrated appliances including a 5-ring gas hob, double oven, extractor and dishwasher, off the kitchen is a handy utility room and a cloakroom WC. The sitting room makes up part of the original house with its original fireplace with inset wood burning stove. Upstairs there are three good sized bedrooms including the master bedroom with vaulted ceiling incorporating a remote controlled Velux window and blind and a luxury family bathroom with a walk-in shower and a bath. Please note, the porcelain floors in the kitchen, utility room and cloakroom WC boast underfloor heating.
