A DREAMY VILLAGE LOCATION! This excellently presented modern twist on a beautiful Victorian 3 - 4 bedroom cottage is situated in the idyllic village of Widdington, approximately 5 miles south of the market town of Saffron Walden. The current owners have spent a lot of time improving the property to make it the stylish, cosy cottage it is today. It benefits from a new heating system and rewiring, as well as a modern kitchen and bathroom.
The property consists of entrance hall, spacious living room with wood burner, walnut kitchen with porcelain flooring and breakfast bar leading into a bright dining area with French doors into the garden, utility room, a multi-use reception room perfect for the 4th bedroom, downstairs WC, 3 great size bedrooms, and a modern refitted bathroom. To the front of the property is nicely set back from the road with a large driveway for ample parking, and side access to the wonderful long garden, which is partly paved with a seating area and partly laid to lawn. There is a workshop with power and light and a hidden gem at the back, with gated access to the garage block which is available to rent from the council.
Widdington is one of the most attractive and popular villages in the area. The village enjoys a beautiful church and public house, the Fleur de Lys, whilst the village of Newport is approximately 2 miles with an excellent range of facilities including primary school, Joyce Frankland Academy secondary school and its own railway station with trains to Liverpool Street and Cambridge. The M11 access points are within easy reach. The fine old market town of Saffron Walden is 6 miles with Bishop's Stortford to the south.
