    About this property

    • This beautifully presented and deceptively spacious home is positioned on the western edge of Aldwincle, a highly desirable chocolate box village, with good access to public footpaths and open countryside. The Potton timber framed house was built in 2000, but has a much older and more characterful feel, with many of the rooms having beautiful, exposed timber beams and lovely wooden doors and window frames, and there's a feature brick inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. The property has underfloor heating throughout. It offers a perfect mix of character and contemporary design, presented to a high standard inside and out.

      A programme of updates has created a stylish home, including a refurbished kitchen in 2022, a new family bathroom in 2023 and cosmetic improvements throughout.

      The front door opens into a large wooden floored stairwell entrance hallway, whilst the sitting room is a real highlight, overlooking the garden and farmland beyond, with a main living space and a separate nook to the side that would make a great study.

      The kitchen/breakfast room, with its adjoining utility, has French-style pale grey cabinets and space for a breakfast table, with the more formal dining room next door offering an alternative space for entertaining.

      At first floor, the principal bedroom has its own dressing room and en suite shower room, while the remaining three bedrooms are well placed for the well-appointed family bathroom.

      The attractive cream stonework and cottage-style design blend perfectly with the older properties in the village and offer excellent kerb appeal: the walled driveway at the front is gravelled and has space for two cars, with additional parking within the attached double garage. An arched doorway inset with a pedestrian gate leads to the professionally designed landscaped south-facing rear garden, where abundant flowerbeds, terraces and shrubs border the lawn which ends in post and rail fence overlooking open countryside. There is also a gazebo, garden shed and a greenhouse, the latter two with light and power.
