A substantial, chain-free, five-bedroom detached house that sits within a 0.25 acre, west-facing plot. The property has undergone an intense program of improvements which includes re-plastering and redecoration and new flooring throughout the property. The handmade, solid wood kitchen has been painted in a light grey chalk paint and includes granite worksurface, brand new induction hob and with space for appliances and a large dining table. There is LED lighting and light fittings through, brushed stainless steel light switches throughout and all window dressing included in sale, and a new suite installed in the family bathroom and contemporary internal doors throughout.
To the front of the property is a large driveway providing off-road parking for numerous vehicles and a laurel hedge offers privacy, with two sheds included in the sale. A gated access to the side of the property leads to the rear garden, this has been recently fenced to a high standard with trees removed and general landscaping completed to provide a wonderfully secure, private and west-facing garden. The total plot measures 0.25 acre.
The entrance hall includes a large built-in cupboard and stairs which lead to a half landing with wonderful views into the garden. The generous living room spans the depth of the house and also enjoys views into the garden via the patio doors. Formerly a double garage, the substantial open-plan kitchen/dining room with underfloor heating comprises a custom-made, solid wood-painted kitchen, commissioned by a local and highly regarded carpentry company who are renowned for producing high-quality bespoke kitchens and furniture. The former kitchen is now a generous utility room, complete with a comprehensive range of built-in wall and base units and access to the rear garden, and a shower room completes the ground floor accommodation. The landing of almost 5m x 2.5m provides an ideal space to work from home or a children's play area. There are four bedrooms, with a first-floor office or nursery and en-suite to bedroom two and a family bathroom.
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 the 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.
