Cooke Curtis & Co are currently open for business, but working from home on reduced staff. Website enquiries, office phone numbers and emails should be answered as normal. If your call goes unanswered we're probably on the other line.

We live nearby so with some notice we can open the office if something physical is required, for example to collect keys for essential repairs. We have processes in place to ensure any visits are handled safely. Whilst government advice permits we will also visit the office regularly to collect post.

We are unable to carry out physical viewings at properties but are working to provide video tours where we can.

We can provide remote valuations by video using WhatsApp, Facetime or similar.

We continue to work with solicitors, mortgage advisors and lenders to progress sales that are already agreed. Current government advice is that sales can complete and you can move house, with appropriate precautions, if necessary.

We are here for our buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants as much as we can safely be.

The Lakes is a select development of 7 properties, situated just north of Cottenham in a rural location. Lake House itself backs south onto a delightful private lake and represents a very rare opportunity to acquire a substantial home in a wonderfully unique setting. The property is approached via a gravel drive jointly owned by the development and serving the 6 other residences. Lake House was built in the 1970s and has undergone much improvement and various extension works over the past 15 years. The result is an extremely spacious and versatile house, emphasising natural light and offering stunning countryside views.

The ground floor accommodation comprises 6 reception rooms, all of which benefit from southerly aspects. There are 2 kitchens, one of which couples as a morning room and adjoins an impressive living area with a wood-burning stove, Velux window and French doors to the rear garden. There is a spacious entrance hall leading to an inner hall with access to a ground floor bathroom.

There are 6 bedrooms, 2 of which are located on the ground floor. Bedrooms 1,2 and 6 all benefit from stylishly refitted en-suite shower rooms. There is also a main bathroom just off from the main landing, a window above the stairwell provides additional light to the first floor.

Outside to the front of the property is an expansive gravel driveway, enclosed by fencing and cast-iron railing. A pathway leads to the double garage and main entrance. There is an additional lawned area with mature trees which could easily serve as additional parking. To the rear of the property is a spacious south-facing garden, predominantly shingled for ease of maintenance and backing onto the splendid private lake. There is a large terraced area, well suited to alfresco dining. The garden as a whole offers a superb degree of privacy throughout and must be viewed to truly appreciate the unique setting.

Agent's Note:
Mains services of electricity and water are connected. There is a separate Klargester drainage and lpg serves the central heating and hot water.
