Haslingfield is a much admired village renowned for its quality properties lying just 6 miles south west of Cambridge, surrounded by rolling countryside over which there are many fine walks (including one to nearby Grantchester). The village operates a superb scheme for its older residents, where a local warden is available for regular visits. The village is well served by a store/shop and post office, and an excellent butcher/delicatessen. There is a very well regarded village primary school and the highly regarded Comberton Village College is just a few miles away. Rail links to London are available from nearby Foxton and Shepreth stations and the M11 motorway (junctions 11 and 12) are within a few minutes drive. There is also a regular bus service to Cambridge.
This unique property enjoys a tranquil position, secluded within the centre of its mature plot and located within the heart of this desirable south Cambridgeshire village. The property was designed in 1975 by the highly acclaimed architect Boston Sanders, who are also credited with several buildings in Cambridge city centre including buildings at St John's College and Sidney Sussex College, along with a number of exceptional private homes such as this one. The house is centered around a stunning double height main section and with its expanse of glass fills the home with natural light, giving it its own individual ambiance. The property was extended in 2011, yet great care has been taken to preserve its many unique features. The current owners have further improved the property, most notably refitting the kitchen and opening this room to the dining room making it a much more usable family space. In brief the accommodation comprises: a spacious entrance hall with slate flooring and heating under and a feature spiral staircase to the first floor accommodation, cloakroom WC off. There is a generous split level sitting room with feature fireplace and the dining room boasts a beautiful vaulted ceiling, again with slate flooring and heating under and patio doors to the rear. The kitchen has been refitted with attractive bespoke cabinetry and a wealth of granite working surfaces with inset one and half sink unit with mixer tap and drainer plus a boiling water tap, 5-ring gas hob, double oven, extractor and space for fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is a study/bedroom six with fitted work station, including desk, cupboards and shelving, a further double bedroom and a well equipped utility room. Upstairs there is a full galleried landing with handy study area and the gallery overlooks the dining room and kitchen below. The master bedroom boasts a Juliet balcony, bespoke wardrobe cupboards, fitted book shelving and an en suite shower room with walk-in shower. There are two further bedrooms, one of which boasts a mezzanine ceiling deck and a family bathroom. Outside the property is approached via a private driveway which provides ample parking for a number of vehicles and a double garage with power and light connected. There are mature and private gardens on all sides with well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, numerous specimen trees and bushes and all enjoy excellent levels of privacy and seclusion.
