The composite door leads to the cosy sitting room with double-glazed windows, an attractive brick surround with an inset log-burning stove, wood effect flooring, and Victorian-style radiators; stairs lead to the first floor with built-in storage below. The rear of the property comprises a lobby with access to a modern ground-floor bathroom with a four-piece suite, half-tiled walled and a skylight. The most impressive part of this gorgeous home is the open-plan kitchen and dining room, which overlooks the garden. Designed to offer space to cook, dine and entertain, this wonderful room comprises a comprehensive range of wall and base units in a traditional style Norfolk Green paint, with quaint handmade tiled splashback and a complete range of integrated appliances. With a skylight, underfloor heating and French doors leading to the garden. The first floor comprises a generous main bedroom with wood paneling to the walls. The second bedroom is a good-sized single with views over the garden and a cupboard housing the boiler.

The pretty cottage-style garden is south/west facing, with a large area of sandstone patio with raised flower beds and a rose arch accessed via the French doors from the kitchen. The remaining garden is designed in sections, with the first being a lawn area with well-stocked borders, the second a gravel area with a pergola, and the third with a further sandstone paved area with a timber shed. Currently used for storage and as a workshop, this substantial building could easily be converted into a home office, gym or studio.

Swavesey itself has a diverse community and is popular with families, due to the successful Primary School and Outstanding Ofsted-rated Village College. There is a convenience store with Post Office and a thatched village shop situated in an historic market square, as well as various churches, a coffee shop, butchers and farm shop and a public house serving a wide range of real ales. On the green sits an attractive pavilion, used by the community. Swavesey is also fortunate to have the wonderful RSPB nature reserve at Fen Drayton lakes leading to miles of walks along the river and a stop for the guided bus. With the completion of the expansion to the A14, residents now benefit from better-flowing traffic, cycle paths and additional local byroads. The village also has a stop for the guided bus, which travels through the nature reserve to St Ives and Cambridge city centre and Addenbrookes. Parallel to the track is a cycle path which is popular for runners, cyclists and walkers.
