    About this property

    • This delightful detached family residence sits within the picturesque village of Shepreth which itself offers a number of facilities including its own main line train station. You are also however within a commutable distance to Cambridge and Royston for faster links in to London and easy access to private Schooling. The home itself offers a lovely blend of the original period home and the more modern extensions, creating a balanced family home.

      Set back from the road behind a private gravel driveway the home is set over two floors under pitch tiled roofs. The front door is located to the side of the house and leads you directly in to the entrance hall that also incorporates the stairs leading to the first floor. Off the entrance hall you are led in to the original part of the home where you will find the dual aspect living room to the front of the property that is flooded with natural light and all set around the inglenook fireplace with in set wood burner and the delightful dining room is to the rear of the property and again also has the benefit of its own inglenook fireplace with inset wood burner. Leading off the dining room is the kitchen which is of generous size as well as being fully fitted to benefit any family.

      The bright, spacious conservatory which is a fantastic entertaining space offers a fantastic link between the living space and the two ground floor double bedrooms which offers the opportunity for complete ground floor living as there is also the benefit of an en suite shower room to the larger of the two bedrooms. Also off the conservatory is the extremely useful office that is ideal for home working and offers views across the garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the family bathroom benefiting from both a bath and separate walk in shower.

      On the first floor you will find two good size double bedrooms which are located within the original part of the property. Completing the first floor accommodation is the newly created and fitted cloakroom which adds great convenience to the first floor bedrooms.

      Outside the property is set within well maintained and picturesque gardens. To the front of the property there is a good sized gravel driveway offering ample off road parking along with a lawned area and manicured shrubbery. The enclosed rear garden wraps around the property and offers a deceptively generous space. There is a large paved patio area which leads off the conservatory, creating a lovely outdoor dining area. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with the benefit of a summer house/workshop which is located to the rear of the garden.

    I was very pleasantly surprised by just how much living space and the flexibility the home offers. This makes it ideal for a growing family or an older couple.
