About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Hope Cottage is a beautifully presented, Grade II Listed property which stands detached and prominently positioned within a conservation area in the centre of this picturesque village, a moment's walk from the local facilities.

The property has been lovingly improved to an exceptional standard, whilst retaining many character features including large sash windows and exposed beams.

A timber door opens to a refitted, Shaker style kitchen which is well-equipped with a wide range of base and eye level storage cupboards, an integrated oven and hob and tiled flooring. There are two good sized reception rooms, of which the current owners use the larger of the two as the formal dining room, with windows to front and rear aspects, bespoke built in cupboards, slate flooring and a cast iron working fireplace. A recently-installed cloakroom is situated off the dining room. The second reception room is currently used as the sitting room and again offers windows to multiple aspects, exposed timber floor boards, and working cast iron fireplace.

On the first floor, the landing enjoys views to the rear garden and has exposed timbers, with doors to the two generous double bedrooms and a spacious, recently refitted high specification family bathroom with walk-in shower and roll-top bath. The master bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes and windows to two aspects.

Outside, the rear garden is enclosed and beautifully maintained with well-stocked borders of various plants and flowers behind neat box hedging. There is a circular lawned area with surrounding gravel pathways, a covered veranda, and seating area. The detached garage has been thoughtfully converted into a utility/boot room and via french doors from the garden, a study/playroom with power and light. Beyond the rear garden there is a driveway providing off-road parking for two vehicles. To the front of the property is a landscaped garden with marture trees, shrubs and a log store with a small walled garden.

Fowlmere is situated about 9 miles south of Cambridge, 6 miles from Royston and is an attractive village which retains numerous period homes of considerable character. There are a variety of local facilities including a primary school, Montessori nursery within 500 yards , public house and a modern village hall with numerous clubs and sports facilities. The A505 is close by, offering fast access to Newmarket (via the A11) and Junction 10 of the M11 is only some 10 minutes' drive; Stansted Airport can be reached within 30 minutes. The A10 is also close by, and the A1 (M25) is within easy reach. Royston mainline train station is a short drive away and provides a fast service to London Kings Cross and on to St Pancras International for Eurostar connections.
