3 Hornet Road is an exceptional example of a modern townhouse built by award winning developer Barratt Homes in the Autumn of 2020. The property, despite only being two and a half years old has been improved by the current owners including kitchen upgrades, beautifully landscaped rear garden and bespoke book shelving to the cosy first floor sitting room. It is wonderfully situated just a stones' throw from Trumpington Meadows Country Park and to Byron's Pool beyond.
The accommodation comprises a spacious entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor accommodation, coat and shoe cupboard, Amtico flooring with a cloakroom w.c. and study / occasional bedroom 4 just off. The open plan kitchen / dining / family room is very much the heart of this beautiful home with part-vaulted ceiling, incorporating two Velux windows and French doors to the rear garden which bathes the space in natural light. The kitchen area is fitted with attractive, contemporary cabinetry, complimented by Earthstone work surfaces with an inset, one and a half sink unit with a mixer tap and drainer and matching breakfast bar. There are a range of integral appliances, which include a five-ring gas hob, double oven, extractor hood, full height fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and drinks fridge with Amtico flooring throughout.
On the first floor landing, stairs rise to the second floor. The cosy sitting room overlooks the garden below and has recently been fitted with a wall of hand-crafted bookshelving. Also on this floor is the master bedroom with mirror-fronted wardrobe cupboards and a luxury ensuite shower room. On the second floor, there are two large double bedrooms, one with a fitted storage cupboard and the other with an airing cupboard and roof space access, and a luxury family bathroom.
Outside, there is off road parking to the side of the property for two cars with gated access leading to the beautifully landscaped rear garden, which is laid to a neat, shaped lawn with an expansive, paved patio terrace with a pergola over. There are also, raised planters with colourful flowers and shrubs, a timber shed and all is enclosed by fencing.
