The property enjoys a wonderful position on the edge of this highly sought-after village, with far reaching views over farmland, yet so conveniently placed for Cambridge City, Addenbrooke’s and the M11/A14. The property has been extended and vastly improved, offering bright and spacious accommodation with all the convenience of modern living, yet with great care taken to preserve the additional features such as wood strip flooring and feature fireplaces. It is set within mature and private gardens with a large contemporary external home office/studio, ideal for those working from home or running a business. The accommodation comprises front door to the open plan sitting/dining room with sash window to front aspect, attractive wood strip flooring, feature fireplace with exposed brick chimney breast and stairs rising to first floor accommodation. The refitted kitchen boasts a part vaulted ceiling incorporating two velux windows, bathing this area with an abundance of natural light. The kitchen is fitted with attractive cabinetry, ample granite working surfaces with inset single sink unit with bevelled drainer, larder cupboard and spice/condiment cupboard. There is a range of integral appliances including a four ring induction hob and oven, full height fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Off the rear lobby is a door to the garden and a bathroom fitted with an attractive white suite comprising low level wc, hand basin, jacuzzi bath and a cupboard housing a free-standing oil fired central heating Worcester boiler and space for a tumble dryer. Upstairs there are two good sized bedrooms and a shower room. The property is set back from the road and enclosed by hedging, laid to paviour. The rear garden is mainly laid to paviour with well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, timber shed and a discretely positioned oil tank. A paved pathway leads to the bottom of the garden where there is a detached contemporary home office/studio with bi-folding doors, oak flooring, and door to a secondary room, again with oak flooring and electric panelled radiators.
Grantchester lies close to the City in the valley of the River Cam and is separated from the City by Grantchester Meadows. The urban edge of the City at Newnham is less than a mile distant and the village is surrounded by open countryside across which there are some wonderful walks. Just 2 miles southwest of the University Centre, the village is one of the most sought-after areas around Cambridge and ideally placed for access to the main road network; the M11(Junction 12) and the A14 are both within just minutes’ drive. Primary school education facilities are available in nearby Barton and secondary at Comberton Village College, while top-rated schools in Cambridge are within easy reach. There are also three well regarded Public Houses. Please note the property sits within a conservation area.
Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected.
