Wellington Wise are delighted to bring to the market this wonderful, unique, character cottage set in the picturesque village of Croydon. It benefits from a garage, ample parking and has been recently updated throughout.
If you’re looking for a spacious home bursting with character, in one of the most sought-after villages in Cambridgeshire, then this property is for you!
The décor is a perfect blend between new and old and the cottage is completely ready to move into.
Upon entering the property, you are welcomed with a brick built mantlepiece with log burner which separates the Living and Dining Room. The beautiful wooden beams bring so much history and character into the rooms, whilst the bay windows keep the rooms bright and airy. The windows have been replaced within the last year and are a wood effect UPVC, in keeping with the character of the property and village. The owners have also updated the flooring to a durable and high-quality wood floor.
The owners have also opened up the Kitchen and Dining room, creating a stunning open planned space that is the perfect balance between period and modern. The kitchen now features a breakfast bar, integrated dishwasher, double fridge and range cooker, and french doors into the garden.
There are lots of generous storage spaces throughout the home, making it a very practical cottage.
Downstairs further benefits from a WC and separate Utility Room, which offers Butler’s sink, a range of base and wall units and space for washing machine, as well as access to the garden.
Upstairs is equally bright and spacious, with the continued wood theme through the door frames, bannisters and beams.
The Family Bathroom is unusually spacious and offers wood-paneled shower over bath, WC, wash basin and heated towel rail.
The Master Bedroom is a very generous space and offers two large built in wardrobes and ensuite with His and Hers vanity basins, shower, WC and airing cupboard.
There are a further 3 double bedrooms upstairs, all with built in storage and characterful features.
The front garden is enclosed in a white picket fence which is laid to lawn with shrubs and flower beds. It offers potential to add additional parking by removing some or all of the front garden, however, there is already ample parking for up to 4 cars and a single garage with up and over door, a window and electricity.
The rear garden is also mainly laid to lawn with flower beds and benefits from a vegetable patch, storage shed and patio area.
”We have loved our time in this wonderful cottage and we are only moving due to job relocation. We have always felt safe and welcome in this village as everyone looks out for each other. We have lovely walks at the back of the house with amazing views over the countryside, including a footpath you can follow for a mile which takes you to the beautiful Wimpole Hall.
The Wood Grill is a wonderful village pub with a lovely landlord and great food. It has never caused us any nuisance or disturbances, just convenience.
The semi-open plan kitchen dining area is so great for hosting dinner parties and the cottage retains it’s heat incredibly well in winter, and stays cool in the summer. In the summer, the sun is over the back garden from mid-late morning right through to sunset so it’s great for hosting BBQs.
We will truly miss living here, there’s not another home quite like it!”
