2 Barrowcrofts is an extensive family home of over 2000sqft, constructed of brick and rendered elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The property offers versatile accommodation, driveway parking and a good-sized rear garden in a quiet cul-de-saq position. Located in the heart of Histon, the property provides easy access to village amenities, excellent schooling and transport connections into Cambridge city.
In a little more detail, the ground floor accommodation comprises porch, open plan living/dining room laid with oak flooring and bifold doors leading to the garden room, kitchen/breakfast room fitted with bespoke solid wood cabinetry and a tiled floor, utility room, inner hall with several storage cupboards, cloakroom WC, two double bedrooms, family bathroom equipped with underfloor heating and conservatory. The extended section of the ground floor incorporates numerous skylights which create a high degree of natural light and was used by the previous owner as an annexe, which could be easily reinstated for a buyer looking for some extra self-contained accommodation. Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, two of which offer built in cupboards, a family bathroom with karndean flooring and a loft hatch leading to a boarded storage space. To the front of the property, there is driveway parking for several vehicles as well as some planted beds and mature shrubbery. To the rear, there is a landscaped garden which is privately enclosed by laurel hedging and mainly laid to lawn with a patio area perfectly suited to alfresco dining.
