About this property

  • The Willows is thought to date back to the early 1800s and is a fine example of a late Georgian village house of Cambridge white brick under a slated roof with sash windows throughout. The front entrance features a turreted porch with leaded stained glass windows.

    The entrance hall has a beautifully preserved Minton tiled floor.

    The left hand reception room has an open fireplace, original cornice and polished exposed wide floor boards.

    The hallway leads through into a central corridor and to one end is a useful double aspect study with original fireplace. To the other is the dining room with French doors leading to a terrace, a large ornamental fireplace with wood surround and a secondary staircase up to the first floor. The dining room opens in to a double aspect living room with decorative fire surround with woodburner, plantation shutters and painted wooden floor.

    Of particular note is the re-fitted kitchen which has a marble floor, a central island with Norfolk Oak worktop, a Lacanche range cooker and a large walk-in pantry with fitted shelving. French doors lead out in to a seating area and the rear garden.

    At first floor level there are five bedrooms, many with original fireplaces and distant views over open countryside. The family bathroom has a freestanding roll top bath, a large bespoke walk-in shower and a Fired Earth washstand and basin.

    The accommodation is shown in greater detail in the attached floor plans

    To the front there is a low wall in front of the house. A gated driveway offers space for parking several cars and leads up to a detached outbuilding which features approximately 734 sq ft of floor space with a vaulted ceiling and a small kitchenette and cloakroom to the rear. The outbuilding has been used as a garage but is currently used as a gym, games room and workshop but could be converted to an annexe subject to any necessary consents.

    The rear garden is laid mainly to lawn with a number of mature trees and shrubs together with a paved terrace adjacent to the kitchen end of the house.

    In all 0.19 of an acre.

This is a really lovely period house with lots of features and a knockout re-fitted kitchen with bi-folding doors and a useful outbuilding which could be turned into an annexe.
