Albert Way, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, PE16
Situated on a plot of approximately half an acre, this modern family home has been designed and built to the very highest standard by the current owners who have enjoyed this family home since its completion in 2018.
Located on the periphery of the popular Cambridgeshire market town of Chatteris, with highly regarded local schools, an array of shops and excellent commuter links, this light and spacious property offers everything for the modern family.
Approached through the gated drive, there is an abundance of off street parking, double garage and a work from home office with countryside views and its own WC and kitchenette.
The main house is very light and bright and has a large formal sitting room, second reception room and very high quality kitchen with built in appliances, granite worksurfaces, island unit, dining area and family area all with views to the rear garden and the space beyond. Off the kitchen is a utility room and a WC and shower room.
Upstairs are five very generous bedrooms and a high end family bathroom. There are en-suite bathrooms to two of the guest bedrooms as well as the principal suite which also has a dressing room. Early internal inspection is strongly advised.
This large and beautifully presented five-bedroom detached family home, designed and built by the current owners in 2018, is enviably positioned on a quiet no-through road on the edge of the busy market town of Chatteris. "We had owned the land for quite some time and because it's such a great location we had always planned to build our family home here," says the owner. "The road is very peaceful and at the back of the property we overlook open farmland, so you get the feeling of being sheltered from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. Although, we are just moments from the centre of town so everything we need is practically on the doorstep. In terms of location, I'd say it would be really hard to better."
"The house is bigger than we intended it to be, but every element of the design has been carefully considered to ensure it is a spacious, bright and an exceptionally comfortable family home. We added big windows to let in lots of light, and the layout in the main living areas has a very open feel so it's great for busy family life and entertaining. We have a huge kitchen/diner that runs across the back of the house – the family space everyone wants these days – and we've added three sets of bi-folding doors that can be pushed back to let the outside in. We also have a playroom and separate living room so there are spaces to retreat to for a bit of separation, and the playroom in particular is flexible in terms of how it can be used so this is definitely a house that can adapt and change depending on a growing family's needs."
"The open-plan kitchen/diner is probably our favourite room and is where we spend most of our time as a family. It's a lovely big space in which we can all be together without feeling on top of one another and, when the sun is shining, we can push back the doors and everyday life can spill out into the garden."
"The house sits on a generous plot set well back from the road with a lovely big garden at the back," continues the owner. "It's mainly laid to lawn, but we've planted eleven oak trees and a blackthorn hedge, all of which are maturing nicely and will enhance the sense of privacy no end once they're fully grown. The garden is a very peaceful space and ideal for family time and entertaining, but one of the standout features has to be the view out across the open fields – and the sunsets are to die for!"
"To the side of the house there is a large double garage with an attached office. It has a small kitchen and a toilet so it's ideal for anyone who needs to work from home."
"The location is absolutely superb; we enjoy peace and privacy and gorgeous countryside views, but all our everyday needs are just a stone's throw away in the centre of town."
"My husband and I loved the process of designing and building this house so we've decided to do it all again, although I don't think we will be lucky enough to find another location quite as perfect as this," says the owner. "In terms of what we will miss the most it has to be the garden and the views."
Chatteris is a small market town with an array of shops, dentists, doctors' surgeries and several public houses, restaurants and tea rooms. The weekly market offers a range of locally sourced fruit, vegetables, meats and fresh fish from the Norfolk coast. The Old Railway Line Footpath and Bridleway which runs from Chatteris to Somersham is an ideal way to access the countryside and leads to a new park with wildlife areas for all the family to enjoy.
Ely and Huntingdon, both about 20 minutes' drive away, have train stations providing rail links into London, Cambridge and Peterborough. Chatteris is also well served by local bus routes to the nearby towns of March, St Ives, Ely and the city of Cambridge. Cambridge and Peterborough are both about 30-40 minutes' drive away and access to the A14 and A1 near Huntingdon offers links to the nationwide road links.
Within Chatteris there are two primary schools: Kingsfield Primary and Glebelands Primary and Cromwell Community College provides secondary education.
