Toft is a highly regarded village located about 6 miles west of Cambridge. The village has a combined village store and post office.

A range of independent schools are available within easy reach on the western edge of Cambridge. The village has a regular bus service (number 18) to and from Cambridge.

Listed grade ll, the original part of the property is believed to date from C17 and was extended in early C19. It is of timber frame construction with a thatched main roof and sits in the centre of its gardens.

The property has been restored to a high standard and retains much of its original character with large inglenook fireplaces, exposed timbers and paver brick floors. Much has been done to bring the property to 21st century standards including almost full secondary double-glazing complementing the oil fired central heating system. There are four bath/shower rooms and a modern well-appointed kitchen.

The accommodation:
A solid timber door opens into the large reception hall with stairs off and cupboard below, open fireplace with log burner incorporated, exposed timbers and paver brick floor with under floor heating. Open studwork divides this area from the drawing room, which is an impressive room with a large inglenook fireplace and raised hearth. Paver brick floor with underfloor heating, and exposed timbers. From this room is a rear lobby with door to the outside and coat hanging area. This gives access to the shower/cloakroom, which has a fully tiled shower cubicle, close coupled W.C., pedestal hand basin, storage shelves and ceramic tiled floor.

Beyond the drawing room is the sitting room, which has another large inglenook with raised hearth and old bread oven, a door to the garden and stairs to bedroom 2.
