This impressive detached family home dates back to 1926 but has been extended over the years. It has been well cared for by its current owners and enjoys a wonderfully peaceful position, a short walk from the community orchard and footpaths, guided busway and Histon’s High Street.
On the ground floor is a spacious entrance hall with built-in storage and access to the first of the reception rooms, currently serving as a study and benefitting from southerly aspects. The dining room has an understairs storage cupboard and stairs leading to the first floor. The living room is light and airy, benefits from a dual aspect and has French doors to the rear garden, in addition is a Living Flame gas fire, contrasted by an attractive surround. The kitchen / breakfast room was designed and installed by Kitchensmiths and offers a comprehensive range of units; integrated appliances include a double oven and 4-ring gas hob with extractor over. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a separate utility room with further units and access to a cloakroom W.C.
Upstairs are 4 good sized bedrooms, the master bedroom is particularly spacious, includes built-in drawers and wardrobes, coupled with an en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom which has been fitted with a modern white suite including a shower over the bath.
Outside the front of the property has an open-plan garden, mainly shingled for ease of maintenance with mature hedging and enclosed by a picket fence. There is a driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles. A secure gate gives pedestrian and vehicular access to a single garage which has both power and lighting. Adjoining this is a brick-built garden store which is double glazed. The rear garden is delightful and has been split into a variety of useful sections. There is a paved patio with sheltered seating area, as well as a Pergola with a grapevine and climbing rose, very well suited to alfresco dining and entertainment. The patio has a number of evergreens and apple trees. The remainder of the plot is predominantly laid to lawn and stocked with a variety of herbaceous borders which include geraniums, marigolds, cowslips and primroses. There are also a number of silver birches and conifer hedging. Finally there is a former stable which has a mezzanine, equipped with lighting and power, offering versatility to suit individual purchasers needs.
