4 3

A highly individual 4/5 bedroom family house with extremely versatile accommodation, arranged over three floors, of about 2,600 sq ft, occupying a wonderful, elevated position with stunning open views across to Ely Cathedral. Viewing essential to be fully appreciated. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Fine & Country are delighted to offer for sale this highly individual family house with extremely versatile accommodation over three floors, occupying a wonderful, elevated position with stunning open views across to Ely Cathedral.
Originally built in the 1960s, Chinta Lodge was subject to a comprehensive programme of alterations and additions during the 1980s. The layout of the original house was remodelled and a substantial, contemporary three storey addition added to the rear, specifically designed to maximise the impressive view and the glorious westerly sunsets.

Step past the property's front exterior and you'll be amazed at how much this property has to offer. Almost 2,600 sq ft of accommodation providing tremendous versatility suitable for a variety of family needs. Two spacious reception rooms, comprising sitting room and dining room, are divided by double doors, which when open provide ideal space for family and social entertaining. The sitting room has a feature brick fireplace, including an inset wood burning stove, and sliding glazed doors to a wraparound split level, decked balcony. A cloakroom, utility room and well equipped kitchen/breakfast room, with a range of bespoke, hand crafted maple cabinets and drawers, island unit, integrated fridge and dishwasher, quarry tiled floor and gas fired two oven Aga, completes the ground floor accommodation. There are four good sized bedrooms on the first floor, two of which have en suite shower rooms, two benefit from impressive elevated views and all have extensive built-in wardrobes. The en suite shower room to the master bedroom was re-fitted in 2016, and a spacious family bathroom measuring 15'4 x 9'3 max (4.67m x 2.82m) includes a large shower with waterfall shower unit.

However, it's at the lower ground floor where the accommodation is at its most versatile. A family room/bedroom, study, storeroom and garden room currently link with the main house, however, subject to re-planning and the installation of a bath/shower room and kitchen this area could easily be adapted to create self-contained accommodation, ideal for dependent relatives, independent teenagers, au pair or for letting purposes.

We cannot emphasis enough just how spectacular the view to the rear of Chinta Lodge really is and it certainly does provide the 'wow factor' to what is already an extremely impressive house. Viewing of this deceptively spacious family home is highly recommended and for those seeking a quick move the property further benefits from not having an onward chain. 

Chinta Lodge is set back from the road behind a low level brick wall topped with wrought iron railings. A driveway provides parking for at least three cars and access to a single integral garage, with double timber doors to front, power, light and internal door to the entrance hall. Gated pedestrian access to the side leads to a useful storage area and onto a large, split level decked terrace, enclosed by wrought iron railings, which is simply the most perfect spot for alfresco dining or to sit and relax with a cup of tea or a gin and tonic and take in the superb view.

A tiered garden to the rear enjoys a westerly aspect and is a particularly fine feature of the property. Fully enclosed by a combination of fencing, hedging and bushes it provides an exceptionally high level of privacy and seclusion. An extensive block paved terrace adjoins the rear elevation of the house and is a real suntrap for sunbathing. There are raised, brick built flower beds, staircase leading up to the decked balcony and steps down to formal area of garden containing a feature circular flower bed, with dividing pathway, and bordered by block paving, areas of lawn and well stocked flower and shrub beds. Steps lead down to a further area of lawn and beyond a line of rose beds is an ornamental pond, raised vegetable beds, potting shed, area of lawn, apple trees and well stocked flower and shrub beds. 

Chinta Lodge occupies a commanding position within Stuntneys highly regarded Lower Road. Fine open views to the rear take in the surrounding Fenland countryside and Ely's magnificent Cathedral, a quite stunning architectural building with its unique Octagon Tower which dominates the landscape for miles around. Stuntney is a small, charming hamlet situated about a mile to the east. Ely provides excellent shopping, sports facilities, cinema complex, parklands, riverside walks, Thursday and Saturday markets and schools catering for all ranges, including King's, a coeducational independent day and boarding school. The mainline railway station at Ely, less than a mile from Chinta Lodge, provides regular services to Cambridge, London's King's Cross and Liverpool Street, Stansted Airport, Norwich, Peterborough, Birmingham and Liverpool, to name but a few.

The university city of Cambridge, with its attractive combination of ancient and modern buildings, colleges, winding lanes, tree lined River Cam, extensive shopping and cultural facilities, is situated approximately 17 miles to the south. The city is not only renowned for its academic achievements but has also become an important centre for the 'high tech' and 'bio tech' industries with the University Research and Development Laboratories, Cambridge Science Park, ARM, Microsoft, AstraZeneca and Addenbrooke's Hospital/Biomedical Campus. There are also several fine museums, wonderful open spaces, including Jesus Green and Midsummer Common, and punting along 'The Backs' is a must.
