Property Description

Haslingfield is a much admired village renowned for its quality properties lying just 6 miles south west of Cambridge, surrounded by rolling countryside over which there are many fine walks (including one to nearby Grantchester). The village operates a superb scheme for its older residents, where a local warden is available for regular visits. The village is well served by a store/shop and post office, and an excellent butcher/delicatessen. There is a very well regarded village primary school and the highly regarded Comberton Village College is just a few miles away. Rail links to London are available from nearby Foxton and Shepreth stations and the M11 motorway (junctions 11 and 12) are within a few minutes drive. There is also a regular bus service to Cambridge.

The Property

The property, originally two cottages, believed to date back to 1780, was later converted to a single dwelling and, in more recent times, generously extended. The extension was designed by David Thurlow, considered one of Cambridgeshire's most important architects with the works being finished circa 1975. Great focus of the design was on bright and spacious rooms with lovely vaulted ceilings and large picture windows and doors bathing the property in natural light, giving it an airy and light ambience. The accommodation comprises: a generous reception hall with stairs to first floor accommodation, a large storage cupboard with plumbing for washing machine and a cloakroom WC just off. The family room makes up part of the original cottage with a feature open fireplace and fitted storage cupboard. Both the sitting room and dining room boast vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers, the sitting room is a particular feature of the house, enjoying a triple aspect with feature fireplace with brick surround (the fireplace has not been in use for many years and may need to be serviced) and fitted book shelving. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with base level and wall mounted storage cupboards, Corian work surfaces with inset one and half sink unit with mixer tap and drainer, 4-ring ceramic hob, double oven and extractor and a wall mounted Vaillant boiler and quarry tiled flooring. Upstairs there is a split level landing with four bedrooms including the master bedroom with fitted wardrobe cupboards and en suite shower room and a family bathroom. Outside the front of the property is screened from the road by hedging with a lawned garden behind with well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, a gravel driveway provides parking for several vehicles and leads to the double garage. The right hand garage is partially open which allows access to the rear garden. The rear garden measures approximately a quarter of an acre, a former orchard laid mainly to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, a wealth of fruit bearing trees, a wildlife pond, paved patio and all enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion.
