Sandylane is a substantial modern house built in 2007 to a traditional style, designed with flexibility and balance in mind and suitable for a large family looking for extensive internal and external space and access to outstanding schools and good transport links into Cambridge City centre. The property has recently been extended to provide additional living/working spaces and a significant refurbishment programme includes a wonderful high-quality and well-equipped kitchen, an impressive en suite to the principal bedroom and french doors to the sitting room. The property is set way back from the road behind a generous gated frontage which is predominately laid to gravel and provides parking for numerous vehicle types, access to the double garage and two side pedestrian gates which lead to the rear garden. The long reception hall provides useful built-in storage and leads to all ground floor accommodation. The superb and very impressive open plan kitchen/dining/family room has been extended to the rear and benefits from a part-vaulted ceiling with Velux window and wide tri-folding doors which provide access to and views of the terrace and garden beyond. The well-equipped kitchen is beautifully fitted and designed and provides an extensive range of quality contemporary units and drawers, a range of high-end appliances, space for a large range oven, solid wood working surfaces and drainer with inset double Belfast sink and a large central island with matching working surfaces, integrated appliances including wine fridge and microwave oven, wine rack, additional storage and seating space. The dining area connects the kitchen from the family seating area. The private sitting room is a comfortable space that enjoys dual aspects and a high degree of natural light. There is a central feature gas fireplace with stone surround and marble hearth. The cosy snug room has windows overlooking the front aspect. The study enjoys views of the garden, the utility room provides additional storage, plumbing and space for white goods and access to the outside. The WC completes the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs, the bright and airy landing leads to the refitted family shower room and four spacious double bedrooms. The dual aspect principal bedroom suite provides built-in wardrobes and has an impressive and recently refitted en suite shower room with walk-in shower and twin sinks with storage beneath. Outside, the rear garden is delightful and comprises two main areas. Landscaped and well stocked gardens form part of the extensive wrap-around terrace which provides a wonderful private seating area and space for outside dining. Deep and established borders of various mature shrubs, trees and hedging cleverly screen the terrace area from an expansive and well-maintained lawn which is fully enclosed by fencing. In total the grounds extend to 0.352 acres.
Over is a large and popular village situated about 9 miles north west of Cambridge. The village offers a wide range of local facilities including general store, hairdresser, public house, green, recreation ground and a very popular community centre. There is a primary school in the village with secondary schooling available at the highly regarded Swavesey Village College.
