    About this property

    • Originally constructed in the early 17th century, this delightful, detached Grade II listed cottage is nestled in the heart of the pretty village of Glatton.

      Known as Orchard Cottage, this attractive home is abundant in original and charming features including a thatched roof, wattle and daub construction, fabulous, exposed beams, and inglenook fireplace which are complemented by the country décor and beautiful country cottage garden.

      There is flexibility for the property to be used in differing ways to suit its occupiers. The sitting room, with its inglenook fireplace, which has been fitted with a wood burning stove, could also serve as a formal dining room next to the kitchen. A recess to the side of the fireplace is currently used as a music area. The second reception room, currently serving as a playroom, could easily be a formal sitting room with dual aspect windows.

      At the heart of the house, the large farmhouse-style kitchen has tiled flooring, wooden fitted units and the range cooker set with the original hearth fireplace. Light and bright with dual aspect windows, there is plenty of space for a kitchen table, and the adjoining utility room offers further space for appliances and home storage.

      A linked hallway from the utility leads to modern wooden-clad extension which provides a large double bedroom with shower en suite on the ground floor. This serves well as alternate main bedroom, guest accommodation or as an annexe or office space if required and has its own separate entrance.

      The principal bedroom, filled with natural light with from the triple aspect windows, has an en suite bathroom with a modern three-piece suite, including a sunken bathtub. Bedroom Two has an inbuilt wardrobe and Bedroom Three has a mezzanine floor, which can provide further storage or as currently used, a reading nook for children. Both bedrooms are served by the three-piece family bathroom.

      Outside
      A sweeping gravel driveway leads to a parking area at the rear with space for several vehicles, as well as access to the detached double garage. The beautiful cottage garden includes areas of lawn, shaded by various mature trees and is complemented with plentiful borders of established shrubs and hedgerows. Towards the rear of the grounds is a small running stream and a sunken pond, which is shown on maps from the 16th century, both of which attract lots of wildlife to the garden.

      From the entrance, off from the utility room, there is a south- facing herb garden with raised beds and gravelled pathways with a established fig tree. A further vegetable patch and greenhouse are located further down the garden and a timber-framed summer house complete with power providing outside entertaining or office space.
