Key Features
    Property Description

    Fulbourn lies 4 miles south east of Cambridge and adjoins the city boundary at Cherry Hinton. It is a village surrounded by open, undulating countryside, close to the Gog Magog Hills and within easy reach of the famous "Gogs" golf course at Shelford Bottom. Communications are excellent, the village lying within a few miles of the A14 and M11 and there is a regular bus service to Cambridge. The parish boundaries follow the Roman Road and Icknield Way to the south west and Fleam Dyke to the east which is excellent walking territory. There is an active village centre with numerous shops, an excellent village school, the whole centred around the 13th Century village church of St Vigor.


    Railway Cottage enjoys a tranquil position tucked away at the end of a quiet, private,no-through road and is conveniently placed for Cambridge City, Addenbrooke's Hospital, A14/M11. The former railwayman cottage is believed to date back to the late Victorian era, however the current owner has transformed the cottage with a programme of expansion and full refurbishment, resulting in bright and spacious accommodation and all finished to exquisite standards throughout. There is an impressive vaulted ceiling reception hall with full height feature window, stairs to first floor accommodation and a utility/shower room off. The kitchen/breakfast room enjoys a dual aspect including bi-fold doors providing views and access to the rear garden and is fitted with attractive cabinetry, both base level and wall mounted with ample working surfaces and inset one and half ceramic sink unit with mixer tap and drainer. The kitchen further boasts a pull-out larder, Range style cooker with extractor, American style fridge freezer and an integrated dishwasher. This room seamlessly opens to the sitting room, again a dual aspect room with open fireplace. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a family room/ground floor bedroom and given its proximity next to the shower room, gives this property a degree of versatility. Upstairs there is a galleried landing, the master bedroom has patio doors to a Juliet balcony and lovely views over the garden and fields beyond and an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms, a luxury family bathroom with feature roll-top, claw foot bath. Outside there is a generous parking area laid to shingle which could easily accommodate a double garage. The side and rear gardens are predominantly laid to lawn and measures approximately half an acre which includes a patio and a pleasant copse, all of which have far reaching views over farmland.

    AGENTS NOTE: The vendor has obtained planning permission for a double garage at the property. Further details available on request.
