4 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
The Water Tower is an unusual and imposing home converted from its functional origins in the late 1970's. Today it provides sizable accommodation measuring 3430-square feet with many interesting design features including a tower staircase and a number of high ceilings.
The property requires some light-touch cosmetic improvement in places but also offers potential for extension (stp) whilst the "tower room" could be developed to make a studio or study. Subject to planning, there is also plenty of room to build a cart lodge in the grounds.
The location is superb; with immediate views over immaculately kept paddocks and with some of the UK's finest studs on the doorstep. Newmarket is just four miles to the northwest.
Highlights on the ground floor include a sizable kitchen/breakfast room with an electric Aga, a double-aspect sitting room with a galleried ceiling and a wood-burning stove; there is also a south-facing garden room.
There are two double bedrooms on the first-floor that share the family bathroom, whilst the master suite sits one level higher, occupying an entire level of the tower - as such it has windows facing four directions as well as tall fitted wardrobes and a good sized en-suite bathroom.
The tower room sits above the master suite and is accessed by a ladder-style staircase. The room is not currently used but could make for a peaceful studio or study with windows facing four directions.
A two-storey annex can be accessed via either a secret door to side of the fireplace or from a set of external doors. This includes a sizable first-floor bedroom (with plenty of wardrobes) plus a ground floor study area and shower room.
The property sits in grounds that total 0.46 of an acre with the house being sat exactly in the centre. The plot is edged by variety of tall trees which will improve privacy in the summer months and it is separated from Saxon Street Road by a five-bar gate.
On the southern side of the house there is a totally private south-facing patio and some good-sized areas of lawn to each side of the house.
Cheveley is located just four miles to the southeast of Newmarket on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire border. Newmarket is a global centre for thoroughbred horse racing, and the village is dominated by well-looked after paddock land belonging to a number of local studs. Infact, the historic Cheveley Park Stud is just over a mile from the property?s front door.
Most day-to-day services are found in Newmarket however the village has a pub (The Red Lion), a post office and a primary school.
