An exceptional opportunity awaits you to acquire a pair of charming Grade II listed period cottages that have been opened up into one cottage, nestled side by side and brimming with character. These cottages exude a rich historical ambience, boasting original features such as exposed beams, timbers, and inviting Inglenook fireplaces. Placed prominently at the heart of the highly desirable village of Balsham in South Cambridgeshire, this is a rare find. Balsham itself offers a wealth of local amenities, all conveniently within a short stroll from the cottages. You'll find a primary school, post office, butchers, a picturesque church, two inviting inns, and a recreation ground with a bowls club and play area in close proximity. Moreover, this village enjoys a strategic location, with Cambridge, Saffron Walden, and Newmarket all equidistant at approximately 10 miles away. Should you require more extensive shopping and schooling options, the nearby village of Linton is readily accessible. For commuters, the convenience continues. There's a train service to London available via Whittlesford or Audley End, and you'll have easy access to the M11 motorway, with junctions at Duxford (Junction 10) and Stump Cross (Junction 9). This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history and embrace the quintessential charm of village life with modern conveniences at your doorstep. Please note the property is in a conservation area and there is a right of way for no 5 at the back of the property.
Balsham has many local clubs and societies including a baby & toddler Group, bridge club, brownies, cubs and scouts, sewing group, football and cricket clubs, yoga, a Horticultural Society and a Choral Society – the Balsham singers. Balsham Feast is held every two years at the recreation ground with stalls, activities, dog shows, donkey rides and evening entertainment. Schooling is provided by the Meadow Primary School, rated good by Ofsted, with secondary schooling at the neighbouring Linton Village College. Students can then progress to various sixth forms which are in the catchment area to Linton Village College, including Long Road and Hills Road in Cambridge.
