beds 4 receptions 4 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.

"The Cottage" is understood to date from 1907 and stands proudly within easy reach of Burwell's services and facilities. The house has been impressively updated in recent years, sympathetically retaining many of its wonderful character features yet offering all of modern day living convenience.

This impressive house boasts two sets of Bay windows, a round bay with unusual curved glass and a square Bay window, complimenting the main sitting room and master bedroom.

A most attractive stain glass front door leads into an entrance hall with a fine staircase and rather interesting nook mirror again with some stain glass. The inviting sitting room has a wood burning stove, bay window and double doors to the conservatory. The kitchen/dining room is comprehensively fitted with granite worktops and leads through to a pantry cupboard, utility room, cloakroom and home office.
