Victoria Cottage presents the chance for quiet village living, within a few hundred yards of the local pub, primary school and play park, the River Great Ouse, and expansive surrounding countryside. The delightful semi-detached period home is set over three floors, and incorporates character features with modern comforts. The extended accommodation includes entrance hall, cosy lounge, family room, country-style kitchen/diner, cloakroom, three bedrooms, en suite bathroom, and shower room. The fantastic garden backs onto green space, and offers tranquillity for relaxation, as well as ample opportunity for outdoor entertaining.
Under the pretty brick and timber porch, the property opens into the entrance hall. To the left is the staircase to the first floor, and the cosy carpeted lounge, featuring exposed brick and slate tiled fireplace with stove. Through the hallway is the family room, also with exposed brick fireplace, wooden shelf mantle, and stove. The corner cupboard provides useful storage. The family room opens into the kitchen/diner – an extension of the main house – where the pitched roof and skylights create a bright and airy atmosphere. The kitchen is fitted in a range of country-style wall, floor, and display units, with wooden worktops, brick-tiled splashbacks, and tiled flooring continuing from the hall and family room. There is a Rangemaster oven with extractor over, dishwasher, washing machine, and ceramic butler sink. A door opens to the contemporary cloakroom, and a stable door leads out onto the patio and garden.
First & Second Floors
To the first floor, the landing gives access to two bedrooms, the shower room, and stairs to the second floor. Bedroom two is a double with built-in wardrobes, and bedroom three is currently used as a dressing room, with a full wall of high-quality built-in wardrobes. The shower room is a modern design, combining wc, bowl-shaped sink on wooden surface, and recessed shower with tiled surround and folding glass screen.
To the second floor, away from the main living and sleeping areas, the private master bedroom overlooks the garden and scenery to the rear. The light and and stylish en suite includes both shower cubicle, and fabulous clawfoot rolltop bath, alongside the sink and wc.
The small brick-retained frontage provides space for planting, with existing climber plant to the facade. Via a paved path to the side, the attractive rear garden is of a substantial size for a period property of this type, giving a generous and well-maintained lawn, and two distinct patio areas. Fenced boundaries afford a sense of seclusion, especially with the field beyond the walled rear border. The outbuilding is a useful addition, and could be utilised for a multitude of uses such as a home office, studio, or storage.
