Unlike so many plain modern homes, the four bedroom detached Stratford boasts a traditional Arts and Crafts inspired frontage finished with craftsmanship and care, including bay windows and a roofed porch.
Yet behind its impressive exterior architecture, this home delivers a design aimed squarely at modern family life. Combining the traditional kitchen with the dining room creates a vibrant open plan space, which forms the heart of the home. Fitted to the highest standard, with premium appliances, it has space to spare for even the largest of families. Double width patio doors bring the outside in, with a wall of glass flooding the room with light all year round. The ground floor also features a separate lounge and downstairs cloaks.
The curving staircase and linear landing leaves maximum room for the four bedrooms above, including two doubles and two singles, with the master bedroom boasting a superbly specified en-suite shower room.
Book your viewing of the Stratford today and see for yourself how smart planning can make the most of every inch in your home.

Alternatively, King’s Ely offers independent education on a day basis for ages 2-18. Cambridge is also home to the outstanding ‘University of Cambridge’.

A trip to Cambridge is also well worth the effort for the famous Footlights, which has produced many household names of British comedy in the past.
For sports, try nearby Littleport Leisure Centre, or The Paradise Centre in Ely itself, while for golf try Ely City Golf Club. Alternatively, for a quieter day out, take a stroll around the beautiful Wicken Fen National Nature reserve.
