A rare opportunity to acquire a stunning semi-detached late Georgian residence circa 1835 offering spacious and beautifully presented accommodation with private gardens and converted outbuildings. The property is positioned close to the heart of this highly sought after village just a short cycle from Cambridge City centre. The current owners have greatly improved the property in their tenure with a programme of sympathetic improvements taking great care to preserve much of the original integrity of the building. The accommodation comprises a large welcoming reception hall with attractive brick flooring and stairs rising to first floor accommodation. The bright and spacious sitting room boasts a triple aspect with feature open fireplace with brick surround and hearth, solid wood flooring, French doors to the garden. The snug/playroom also overlooks the garden and has solid wood flooring. The kitchen/dining room is very much the heart of this beautiful home and again a room bathed with natural light given its dual aspect plus roof light. The kitchen area is fitted with base level and wall mounted storage cupboards, ample fitted working surfaces with inset sink unit with mixer tap and drainer, four ring ceramic hob, oven extractor, space for dishwasher and fridge/freezer, with ceramic tile flooring. Off the rear lobby there is a door to the garden and a cloakroom WC. Upstairs off the landing are four good sized bedrooms including the master suite with vaulted ceiling, a refitted family bathroom and refitted family shower room.
Outside the front garden is enclosed by a picket fence, with a gravel driveway for two cars and garage accessed via a bridleway immediately to the left of the house. The rear garden is both private and mature, laid mainly to neat lawns with well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, paved patio area, selection of specimen and fruit bearing trees and two timber sheds. The brick outbuildings have been fully refurbished, one to a large utility/boot room and the other to a generous home office/hobby room. Gated rear access leads to the parking area and garage.
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.
