Orchard Cottage is a charming 17th-century, Grade-II listed property situated on the outskirts of Linton.

Linton is a charming village nestled in the picturesque countryside and is located approximately 8 miles southeast of the city of Cambridge. Known for its historic architecture, the village boasts a mix of thatched cottages and traditional stone houses.

Home to a close-knit community with a rich cultural heritage, Linton is evident in local events and festivals. The surrounding landscape offers beautiful walks and scenic views, making Linton an idyllic destination for those seeking a rural experience.

Included within the village are a range of award-winning schools, pubs, coffee shops, and a zoo which is located on the south side of the village.

Public transport is something that Linton prides itself on, with a very reliable bus service that runs every half hour and terminates at Drummer Street in Cambridge. In addition to this, Whittlesford Parkway train station is only 5.8 miles away (11 min drive).

If you prefer to drive, the M11 is accessible in approximately 10 minutes, making travel both north and south very convenient.

This detached cottage features a traditional exterior and has been tastefully renovated, incorporating original character and sleek modern design.

The cottage is timber frame construction. Throughout the property, there are numerous character features such as exposed wooden beams, traditional windows and fixtures, and an inglenook fireplace, which contribute to the cottage's historic charm and authenticity. The existing owners have taken an extra level of care and attention to maintain the property throughout their ownership.

Entering from the front door, the open office, which features access to the downstairs bathroom, a fireplace, and one of two staircases, greets you with natural light filtering down from upstairs and through the front and rear windows.

This leads through to a tastefully arranged and characterful living room, which has a second staircase leading upstairs and allows access to a downstairs WC and utility area.

The kitchen, recently installed as part of the two-storey extension, has been fitted with contemporary appliances, ample cabinetry, and stylish countertops, creating a functional and inviting space.

The dining area, with its warm ambiance, provides a perfect spot for gatherings and enjoying home-cooked meals, all while maintaining a connection to the cottage's historical roots.

Upstairs, the three bedrooms are generously sized and filled with natural light, each offering a tranquil and cosy atmosphere. The master bedroom provides a peaceful haven with en-suite and ample storage, while the additional bedrooms are perfect for family, guests, or a home office.

The exterior of this charming cottage is equally impressive. The good-sized garden is a true highlight, offering a private and serene outdoor space. It is well-maintained and features a variety of mature plants, flower beds, and a lawn area, perfect for gardening enthusiasts or for enjoying outdoor activities with family and friends. There is also a patio area, ideal for alfresco dining and summer barbecues.

Adding to the cottage's appeal is the detached carport, which includes solar panels. This eco-friendly feature provides energy efficiency and contributes to lower utility costs, blending modern sustainability with the cottage's historic charm.

In order to appreciate the charm of this wonderful home, a physical viewing is highly recommended.
