1 Papworth Close is a substantial detached house built to a traditional style, designed with family living in mind and offering bright and spacious accommodation of around 2850 sq ft suitable for the largest of families.

On the ground floor there is a spacious reception hall with doors leading to the three principal rooms. The sitting room is located at the rear of the property, a well-balanced room, with dual aspect windows, feature fireplace and French doors opening out to the rear garden. The large kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with an extensive range of base and eye level units with granite work surfaces, stainless steel range cooker and integrated dishwasher. The breakfast area offers space for large dining table and has doors opening on to the rear terrace, with views across the mature garden. There is a separate dining room, family room and study to the ground floor, along with an attractive conservatory, utility room and cloakroom/WC.

On the first floor the central landing gives access to five bedrooms. Bedroom one has windows to both front and rear elevations and benefits from a walk-in dressing room with en-suite bathroom. There is a further en-suite shower room to bedroom two, along with a family bathroom.

Outside the property forms part of a small development of just five detached houses, set on a private road off the Lanes, in the centre of the village. To the front of the house there is an established hedge and small front garden, laid to lawn with gated footpath leading to the front door. To the side of the property there is a block paved driveway offering parking for several cars and leading to a detached double garage with electric up and over doors. There is also light and power connected to the garages and door to garden.

The generously proportioned west facing garden offers a mature backdrop to the house, laid mainly to lawn, with established planted beds and several mature trees. The whole is enclosed and offers a good degree of privacy.


Over is a large and popular village situated about 9 miles north west of Cambridge. The village offers a wide range of local facilities including general store, hairdresser, public house, green, recreation ground and a very popular community centre. There is a primary school in the village with secondary schooling available at the highly regarded Swavesey Village College. Whilst being a quiet village it is ideally well situated to access the guided bus stop located between Over and Swavesey with buses running to St Ives and Cambridge, and the new Cambridge North Railway Station and north to St Ives, Huntingdon and Peterborough. In addition, there is an adjoining off road cycle/walkway. Access to the A14 is only five miles away. There are plentiful local walks including along the River Ouse and at the nearby RSPB reserve at Fen Drayton Lakes.
