Foresters, the original 18th century village Inn set in a mainly quiet historical part of old Cam, has been thoroughly updated to create a spacious family home of character with over 1,400 sq ft of accommodation. Original beams, exposed stone feature walls and practical original tiled floors in parts can be enjoyed. Large private and sunny walled garden designed by Graduate Gardens of Bisley completes this special property which benefits from Everest double glazing. The house has a distinctively 'cosy' feel, warmed by its new Worcester Bosch gas boiler and updated heating system. The principal rooms and new 'snug' are light and sunny. The thick stone walls keep you cool in the hottest of summers. The quiet bird filled garden is found to the rear of the property and can also be accessed from the car park through a new 6 ft gate. A good sized lawn tended by Green Thumb is reached by attractive steps and a new 6 foot fence gives a good degree of privacy. There are well planned and part planted shrub and flower beds, cherry trees, a small area for vegetables and two well established bases for a greenhouse and a summer house. There are plans for a Prime Oak garden room which would give 2 more lettings bedrooms (subject to planning). PLANNING is granted for the whole Foresters building to be divided into maximum of 4 cottage apartments as well as approval for small additions.
