Graveley itself boasts the locally regarded Three Horseshoes pub which offers traditional ales, delicious food menus and a Sunday carvery.
There is a bus for the local primary school and it is also within catchment to the outstanding Ofsted rated Cambourne Village College.
The property itself comprises of three good reception rooms, an open plan kitchen/breakfast room, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a workshop area with annex potential. The generous rear garden has been landscaped and provides fabulous outside space to relax or play. Internal viewing is strongly recommended to fully appreciate the delightful interiors throughout this family home.

Beautifully positioned in the peaceful Cambridgeshire village of Graveley is Tudor Cottage, a stunning period home that has been stylishly refurbished by the current owners. "I first noticed this house when I was a child," says the owner. "As a child I would often pass the house and I'd look at it and think it had real curb appeal and that it was the type of house I'd like to live in when I grew up. Well, fast forward to 2006 and I discovered that the property was for sale, so without hesitation I jumped at the chance to buy it."

"The previous owner had been here for a number of years, but hadn't really done a thing to it so when we came it was definitely in need of a great deal of TLC. We essentially stripped it right back and almost started from scratch, but we were keen to maintain the character and charm of this lovely old building and so wherever possible we've retained and enhanced all of its beautiful period features. There are old exposed timbers and beams, which have been sandblasted to bring them back to their former glory, and there's a gorgeous inglenook in the main living room, but we've also installed a stunning modern kitchen and stylish new bathrooms. all the things needed for comfortable modern living; in fact I'd say we've struck the perfect balance between the old and the new. We also slightly tweaked the layout to create space for us to all be together, but also rooms that my husband and I or the children can retreat to if we need a bit of separation. All in all I'd say it's the perfect family home."

"The garden, which is a lovely size, has also undergone a bit of a makeover, We had the large patio terrace relayed, so that's now a lovely big space for relaxing and entertaining, we created another seating area a little further away from the house and we also had our 'wine hut' built, which is a lovely place to sit with a cold glass of something and catch the last rays of sun. The rest is mainly laid to lawn, so great for children, and it's edged with a very pretty border of shrubs and flowers."
