This typically 16/17 th century thatched cottage, known as Strangeways, is situated at the heart of the earliest site of the village of Milton, set on the old roadway leading to the River Cam. Built with local timber to house 3 families close to the original Manor House, it now overlooks the woods
and farmland that cover the archaeological remains of the manor and its moat; and with Milton Country Park at its back, the setting is remarkably rural for a dwelling so close
to Cambridge city centre (4miles) and the railway station (2miles). Indeed, the river towpath makes the city centre less than a half hour cycle ride away.

Parking is free along the no-through road but the cottage also has off-road hard-standing for two cars in front of and behind its heavy wooden gates.

The entrance door, in the middle of the three cottages,drops into a lobby with door to the main sitting/kitchen area on the one side and access to the snug, conservatory and utility room on the other.

The kitchen area has an AGA cooker in the original fireplace, an adjacent pantry/ store with marble worktop and wooden shelving, and oak pedestal units housing one and a half bowl stainless steel sink, dishwasher and fitted

At the further end of the room is a small conservatory with doors leading into the garden and one of the two original staircases. The whole of this area is floored with solid oak parquet.

To the other side of the entrance lobby is a snug/TV room which opens into a larger conservatory, with wooden flooring throughout. Leading off from this is a utility room,housing Megaflow electric tank and plumbing for washing machine, and a separate, fully tiled shower room with basin, w.c. and underfloor heating. The second staircase
leads up from the far end of the utility space to the first floor bathroom ( with roll top bath, wc and basin, also underfloor heating) and to the three bedrooms.

The property has all electric heating and benefits from secondary glazing (Magnotherm: removable for summer) on all non- double glazed windows downstairs except utility and shower room.

Outside, the large, south-facing garden is dominated by a magnificent magnolia tree, flanked by other evergreens over 100 years old; formerly owned by a pharmacist and since left to run wild, many unusual plants are now appearing, notably the Duke of Argyll's tea tree ( or goji

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
