Fine & Country Cambridge are delighted to offer for sale this delightful 3 double bedroom, 18th century, cottage that is situated fronting an open field in the village of Barton and within just a 5-10 minute drive of Cambridge city centre. Also for sale, as a separate offering, is the adjoining 2 bedroom cottage. So if you do perhaps require an annexe or just want an additional income, as this creates an excellent yield for the current owners, then this could be an excellent find. If not, then this cottage alone is simply charming.

Set back from the main road, the main access to the property is from the rear, where you have a gravelled driveway for several vehicles. Going through the rear gate you access the very private and generous gardens that surround the property. Going to the front and the main entrance you are immediately wowed by the setting, as this cottage fronts a field and with the village green in the near distance.

Going inside you will see that this cottage has been sympathetically updated by the current owners, creating that perfect combination of retained period features and some more contemporary finishing. On the ground floor you have a typical country style kitchen with range oven and bespoke oak units and is light and airy with windows to three aspects. Off the kitchen is the snug, a good size second reception room that almost mirrors the size of the main sitting room. The snug has a feature fireplace with wood burning stove, wooden floors and double doors opening to the rear garden. The sitting room is also full of character, with a stunning inglenook open fireplace with timer bressumer, feature wooden beams, wooden floor and also has dual aspect views. Completing the ground floor is the front entrance hall which is open to a useful utility area and also has a cloakroom toilet off.

The first floor feels equally as spacious as the ground floor and features three double bedrooms and again there is period charm, with wood floors, wooden beams and feature fireplace. There's plenty of space in each room for wardrobes and no awkward sloping ceilings or small wall space that you often find in period homes. A superb contemporary update is the bathroom, with a four-piece suite including a shower cubicle and a roll top bath, essential in finishing any period home that has had modern updates.

Viewing this home is essential to appreciate the quality of accommodation, delightful positioning within the village and the location which is so convenient for local and major road networks, rail links, public and private schooling and the ease of access to Cambridge. Call Fine & Country Cambridge today on 01223 363700. 

AGENTS NOTES ADJOINING PROPERTY As previously mentioned, the owners of this 3 bedroom cottage also own the adjoining two bedroom cottage, which they purchased and renovated several years ago. This is being offered for sale at a guide price of £250,000. This will be sold as a separate offering but could be a great purchase if you wanted this in addition to this offering. It could make additional accommodation, an annexe or a fantastic investment property. The current owners operate the cottage as an airbnb rental and in 2018 generated an income in the region of £23k, with an average nightly rent of £85 and with approximately 90% occupancy through the year. Ideal for the current owners was that they didn't have to let this property on certain weekends or occasions if they wanted it for their own use.
