Cheveley Road, Saxon Street
beds 4 receptions 3 bath 2

Saxon Street is a small pretty village situated in attractive countryside about 4 miles east of Newmarket and 16 miles from the University City of Cambridge.

Spring Cottage is understood to have origins back to the 16th Century when part of the house served Saxon Street as the village butchers. The house has changed a lot since, firstly by the addition of the main house, thought to date from early to mid 1800's and then more recently to the side and garaging.

This splendid house provides a substantial level of carefully maintained accommodation, retaining many character features expected in a property of this age, whilst complimented by large gardens to the rear. In fact the whole plot is thought to extend to about a quarter of an acre.

In more recent years the property has undergone a sympathetic programme of updating and improvements and now offers a deceptive house, far larger than the front would suggest with potential to re model or enlarge further, subject to consent.
