About this property

  • Bridge House is a lovely detached house which has been extended over the years to provide considerable and versatile accommodation over two floors. Of part brick, part rendered accommodation, the vendors have added a conservatory to the rear of the study (or sitting room) together with a detached garage with twin timber doors. The gardens and drive have also been considerably re-landscaped, with well-stocked borders whilst retaining the maturity which still provides a good screen.

    The accommodation flows well from the vaulted hall – to the right is a double aspect sitting room with an impressive stone fireplace as the focal point and wooden flooring. To the left is the open plan kitchen/family room – the kitchen area being fitted with a good range of white floor and wall units, granite worktops, eye-level oven, hob with extractor and a circular breakfast bar cleverly sitting beneath and beside the curved worktop. The polished flag stone flooring both here and in the adjoining sitting area flows through to the garden/dining room - this is a superb light-filled vaulted space with French doors to the side garden and a circular window above in the apex. Beyond the kitchen is a good utility/boot room space with further garden access. In addition there is a second reception room which is a study at the moment but might also be a playroom or snug with a conservatory – or second study – beyond.

    On the first floor, the spacious vaulted, galleried landing leads to the four double bedrooms – the master suite with oak floorboards has a surprisingly spacious dressing room and shower room beyond. The large family bathroom with separate shower completes the first floor accommodation.

    Outside
    The property is approached via electric timber gates with a block paved drive to the detached double garage. As previously mentioned, the well-stocked gardens have been attractively landscaped and are predominantly to the front of the property with a side terrace beside the garden/dining room and further paved and other storage areas to the rear.

As soon as you arrive and the electric gates open, the impressive planting and lawn give a lovely sense of space. This is a great family home, set well back from the village road and it's large welcoming light-filled rooms offer a super versatile ground floor layout. All in a very convenient location for access to both Cambridge and London.
