About this property

  • Yew Cottage was built in 1996 with a great deal of input on the design from the current owners who wanted to create a house in keeping with the design of many of the older houses within Girton village.

    The property which is constructed using reclaimed bricks and rendered concrete block elevations beneath a tiled roof can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplan.

    The house is located on the right hand side of the High Street away from the centre of the village with open fields and footpaths within close proximity, is approached on a wide and deep brick paved driveway bordered by rendered curved wall leading to an attractive solid Canadian oak front door.

    The door opens into a vestibule and beyond a door leads into the hallway. On the rights is a well-proportioned dual aspect study with views of the side garden and a further snug beyond with working gas fireplace. On the left there is a kitchen breakfast room with solid wood wall and floor mounted units, space for a free standing oven fridge and dishwasher, an area for a breakfast table and views of the rear garden through French patio doors and a large window over the sink. Beyond the main reception with two sets of French doors leading out to a terrace and the main garden.

    At the far end of the hall the largest bedroom with en suite bathroom has the benefit of views over the garden and a bank of wardrobes. A utility room with stable door leading to the garden and cloakroom complete the downstairs accommodation.

    Upstairs there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom with white sanitary ware.

    Outside there is a large double garage with a storage room above. The gardens surrounding the house on three sides with the main area laid to lawn but there is an abundance of flowering shrubs and perennials.

This is a modern cottage hidden away in this quiet position close to good walks. Alongside some of the prettiest gardens I've been lucky enough to see - this is a delight.
