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.
