Cherry Cottage is a fine example of character residence set amongst undulating countryside within the highly sought after village of Ickwell and just a short walk from it's idyllic green. The original cottage is believed to date back to 1750 with latter additions in the late 1990's and early 2000's to create a fantastic country residence ideal for the family with the opportunity for a self-contained annex should someone require. The property has been lovingly updated and improved by the current owners to offer a perfect blend of 'old meets new' with an abundance of character features such as exposed timbers, original flooring and latch doors expertly combined with modern day fittings such as luxuriously appointed bathrooms and underfloor heating to most rooms of the extension part. There is lots of flexibility with this property and the property features three staircases which offers a large family to have their own space and independence if required. The property is approached by an electronic operating gate opening on to a private driveway shared with a neighbour that leads to an extensive gravel drive providing access to the double garage situated at the rear. Entering from the original cottage you are greeted with a lovely formal dining room with original stone block floor and inglenook style fireplace, this leads through to the fitted farmhouse style kitchen featuring an AGA cooker with enough space for a breakfast area. The kitchen also has the stairs leading up to two of the bedrooms, the larger one featuring an almost walk-in wardrobe area, there are plentiful original timbers and a vaulted style ceiling. There is an inner lobby that connects the original cottage and the extension, this provides an excellent storage area for shoes and coats and features reclaimed stone work which mimics the original cottage. There is a stylish shower room with glass cubicle with tiled floor and underfloor heating. The inner hall also flows through to the Conservatory/Orangery, this is of solid oak construction and features a vaulted ceiling allowing lots of natural light to flow through the property which also enjoys views across the private garden. The main sitting room is 28'6 which features an open multi fuel fire, oak flooring and has two staircases which serve the master bedroom and two further first floor bedrooms and shower room. Off the lounge, there is a further study/snug which could be used as a downstairs bedroom as it has a WC off of it which could be turned into an en-suite for dependent relative. The master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers which is in-keeping with the original cottage and this has a lovely en-suite with Jacuzzi bath finished to a high specification with underfloor heating. The other two bedrooms are doubles which share a further shower room again with underfloor heating. Outside there are well tended to gardens which are principally lawned and edged with attractive picket fencing and reclaimed sleepers. There are a couple of mature trees interspersed throughout the garden area. There is also a large patio area ideal for outdoor entertaining. The cottage comes to the market with no upward chain and a viewing is essential to fully appreciate what this deceptively spacious home has to offer. Ickwell is a picturesque village situated within a Conservation area with the focal point for the village being the green where there is a cricket pitch and pavilion. The village is also famous for it's maypole which there is a fantastic event held of the 'Mayday' bank holiday. There are beautiful countryside walks and various events all summer long at the nearby Shuttleworth House.
