A beautifully presented and versatile, detached home which has been renovated by the current vendors, with a particularly good eye for detail and quality.

The impressive double-storey entrance hall features a locally commissioned bespoke, solid oak staircase and oak doors throughout. The extended sitting room features a log-burning stove and large South facing window to the front. The well-planned kitchen is fitted with a traditional style range of wall and base units, plus a useful walk-in pantry/utility room, with a separate boot room. There is a ground floor double bedroom, alongside a modern ground floor bathroom and a second bedroom, currently used as a dining room/office with French doors leading to the wonderful garden. The impressive first floor comprises a galleried landing with eaves storage, two large double bedrooms and a modern, shower room with Velux window.

The meticulously maintained front garden included well-stocked borders, hedging and fencing to the boundary, with a five-bar gated driveway providing off-road parking for numerous vehicles and leading to the single garage measuring 3.9m x 7.6m. The equally impressive rear garden, with views over fields to the rear, is divided with an expanse of Indian sandstone patio for outdoor dining and overlooking the generous and well-tended lawn area, with well-stocked borders. To the rear of the plot is a fenced vegetable growing area with various fruit trees accessed via a pretty arbour with established roses. Included in the sale are two sheds, one currently used as a log store.

The popular village of Over lies approximately 10 miles (16.09 kilometres) north-west of the university city of Cambridge, providing easy access to A1 and M11. The nearest stop for the Guided Busway is just a mile away in neighbouring Swavesey; this is a direct route west to the market town of St Ives and south to the city of Cambridge, stopping at the Science Park, Train Station and Addenbrooke’s Hospital. Parallel to the Busway is a cycle path which is also popular for runners and walkers.

The community centre, located next to a sports field and children's play area holds many events such as weddings, parties and sports matches. The village green is the perfect place to watch a cricket match, walk the dog or play football.

There are two preschools, a successful primary school and Over is within the catchment for Swavesey Village College, which was rated as outstanding by Ofsted following their most recent inspection.

Along the High Street is a convenience store, village garage, a pub and hairdressers. A butcher, bakery, farm shop and Co-operative are located in the neighbouring village of Willingham, as well as Willingham Auction House with its tea rooms and popular eatery. Wonderful walks can be enjoyed in the outlining countryside including orchards which are open to the public, the picturesque fen or along Chain Road to the River Ouse. A short walk to the RSPB Ouse Fen Nature Reserve for bird watching just north of the village with parking and access to the river.
