Laburnum House is a stunning individual detached family residence, constructed in 2007 and offers extremely spacious and versatile accommodation arranged over three floors of about 4200 sqft. The house is set back from the road, approached via a private driveway to a gated entrance which affords great privacy and security. The location is perfect for family life with Cambridge City/Schooling just a 10-minute drive and a commuters dream with the M11 just a few miles away. The location offers the best of both worlds, conveniently located for work and school, yet just a stone’s throw from beautiful countryside walks. The gardens and grounds extend to about 0.4 acres and this open space on all sides of the property is the perfect place for children to play and a wonderful summer evening entertaining space.
The accommodation comprises a welcoming reception hall with beautiful wood block flooring and stairs to first floor accommodation with storage under, further fitted storage cupboards and a cloakroom wc just off. There are four large reception rooms plus a home office. The drawing room is an elegantly proportioned dual aspect room with feature inglenook fireplace and inset cast iron wood burning stove. This room also incorporates a peaceful library area with bespoke fitted book shelving. The kitchen/breakfast room is very much at the heart of this beautiful home, fitted with attractive cabinetry, ample granite working surfaces with inset one and half sink unit with mixer tap and bevelled drainer, and a matching preparation island/breakfast bar with granite top and additional cupboards below. There is a Rangemaster 110 stove with matching extractor hood over, an integral dishwasher, wine fridge, microwave, plus space for an American style fridge/freezer. Just off is a handy utility/boot room with wall mounted gas fired central heating boiler and space for the usual white goods. Off the kitchen area is a large formal dining room and both the dining room and the kitchen are linked by a substantial garden room which remote controlled fitted roof blinds and views over the garden, making it a wonderful entertaining/family space.
The impressive first floor landing enjoys views over the front of the property with stairs rising to second floor accommodation. The master suite is generously proportioned with fitted wardrobe cupboards, views over the rear garden and a luxury en suite shower room. Similarly, the guest bedroom also boasts en suite facilities, plus there are three further double bedrooms and a four-piece family bathroom. The top floor boasts two large double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobe cupboards, and the larger of the two with an en suite shower room, making this flexible area ideal for an au pair, hobby room/gymnasium, or a place to work from home.
Outside, the property is set back from the road and screened by a combination of fencing and hedging and accessed via electric gates to a large block paved driveway area, which accommodates several vehicles plus turning space. There is a large detached double garage with two up and over doors (one electric) with power and light connected. Side access leads to the rear garden which is predominantly laid to well-maintained lawns, flanked by flower and shrub borders and beds, with several specimen trees and mature bushes, and complimented by a large stone terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining. All extends to about 0.4 acres and enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion.
