A spacious detached four bedroom family home with versatile accommodation, set in approx. 0.25 acre of productive gardens, in a rural village location
A lifestyle property with an extremely flexible layout giving the space and potential to create an annexe if required. Outside there are a number of outbuildings including a summerhouse, potting shed and chicken house, along with productive vegetable plots and fruit trees. An excellent opportunity for green-fingered gardening enthusiasts, the garden is planted with Permaculture in mind, and embraces Tree Guild, Hugelculture and Straw Bale planting. There are over 100 perennial fruit plants in more than 26 varieties and over 20 different perennial herbs. This would virtually guarantee that the new owners could pick something for their tea on their very first night in residence!
The property was formerly a village shop but has since been converted into a comfortable family home. The vendors inform us that there was previously outline planning permission at the bottom of the plot for one dwelling, but this was not pursued.
Murrow village has a local doctors surgery, pharmacy, beauty salons, public house and shops, all within walking distance, whilst nearby Guyhirn has a range of shops, pubs, bowling alley and a filling station. The larger towns of Wisbech and March offer a wider range of facilities and amenities, and the city of Peterborough is within easy reach.
There are a number of catchment primary and secondary schools nearby, as well as both public and private grammar schools.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
