4 bed Detached House
Swaffham Road, Burwell
beds 4 receptions 3 bath 1

Burwell is situated in pleasant countryside approximately eleven miles north east of the university city of Cambridge and some four and a half miles from the horse racing town of Newmarket. The village contains an interesting variety of properties ranging from period cottages to modern family houses and there is an excellent range of facilities including a primary school, doctors surgery, dentist, various shops catering for everyday requirements, a church, public houses and a regular bus service. Burwell is particularly well located with good access to the A14 dual carriageway which interconnects with many of the regions traffic routes, principally the M11 motorway to London and the A11 to the east. There is a regular train service from Newmarket to Cambridge into London's Liverpool Street and King's Cross Stations.

This handsome detached house started life as a modest cottage but in more recent years has been greatly and sympathetically re modelled and extended, transforming the house into a graciously proportioned family home of character. More recently a fabulous reception hall extension has been completed, now a most impressive entrance. The front door and staircase are crafted of American Oak and there are two high level dormer windows, flooding the front of the house in natural light.

The principle reception rooms have fitted Walnut wooden floors with matching skirting boards. The fitted bookcase in the inner hall are also made of Walnut to match the floors. Upstairs the floors and doors are all made from American Oak, matching the staircase.

For the music lovers out there, the house has been fitted with a wired entertainment system. There are high quality speakers in many of the rooms, including the bathroom and the system is also connected to the main television set.

Outside the house enjoys delightful gardens laid to lawn with a pond and patio approached via a small bridge. There are many well stocked and interesting shrub borders both to the front, sides and rear. A detached double garage is positioned at the end of the drive and there is off road parking for at least five of six cars.
