Rare opportunity to acquire a substantial property with potential for further development in a quiet location but within easy access of excellent amenities. This individual, four bedroom detached house with accommodation of almost 2000 sqft, has never been available on the open market and offers great potential due to the plot size measuring 0.4 acre.
The entrance hall features an original parquet floor and solid wood Sapele staircase, the generous sitting room benefits from morning sun through the east-facing picture window, with an open fire and is open plan to the dining room, with access into the versatile conservatory/garden room which opens to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units and is fully equipped with integrated appliances and a walk-in larder. There is a separate utility room and WC. A further reception room across the hallway could be utilised as a home office, a separate dining room or an additional bedroom. Having been extended in the 1990's, the property also benefits from a double garage and further reception room with patio doors leading to the garden, this could be used as a family/games room, office/workshop. The spacious first-floor accommodation comprises an impressive master bedroom with wardrobes included, built in cupboard and en-suite shower room. The second, equally generous double bedroom is also en-suite. Spanning the full depth of the property is another large duel-aspect double bedroom with eaves storage. A fourth single bedroom and family bathroom complete the internal accommodation.
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 an 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.
