Shoe Cottage is an abundantly charming character property positioned on the green in Swaffham Bulbeck, Cambridgeshire. Dating back to the late 18th century, this sympathetically renovated home, originally believed to be four cottages was converted into a substantial family home. Then later extended to the rear to now offer almost 3000sqft of internal accommodation with generous gardens and countryside views. 

The ground floor accommodation comprises; Entrance Hallway with staircase raising to the first floor. Sitting room with timber glazed windows to front looking out over the village green. Kitchen/dining room with two timber windows to the front aspect. Central brick fireplace creating an attractive division between the kitchen/dining areas. The country style kitchen has a range of matching wall and base units with quartz worksurfaces over. Stone tiled flooring complements the room and continues through into the sizable utility room with matching units to the kitchen, doors leading through into the inner hallway and lobby area. The ground floor double bedroom offers attractive views over the rear garden with a modern shower room also leading from the inner hallway. The living room has a stunning brick built fireplace with log burning stove, incorporating log store and timber mantle over, doors leading through into the conservatory and two windows offering views over the private rear garden. 

The staircase from the kitchen leads to a bright and airy landing with Velux window and doors leading through into two generous sized bedrooms and sizeable bathroom suite with exposed stone wall. The secondary staircase from the entrance hallway leads to a smaller separate landing with doors leading into another two larger then average double bedrooms, one with walk in storage area. The main bedroom leads through into the modern and spacious ensuite shower room with double shower cubicle. 

The private and attractive rear garden offers a real sense of privacy and is mainly laid to lawn, with brick pathway leading to a private courtyard area before exiting through the five bar gate onto the driveway at the front of the property. The rear garden is fully enclosed by tall hedging and has various seating areas.
