Occupying a secluded position within attractive mature surroundings, this large and individual detached family residence is set back from the road on a wide corner plot, and is hidden by tall hedging to the front and side boundaries. The property now extends to an impressive 2188 sq ft with the majority of accommodation on the ground floor, including split-level reception rooms and two versatile wings providing various spaces that can be configured with a high degree of flexibility.
A long, wide driveway provides ample off-street parking and leads to a large open double carport with storage area to the rear. The private and sunny front garden with lawn, floral border and large walnut tree, is entered by an arch from the driveway.
The entrance hall, with utility/cloakroom, leads around via the rear sun lobby to the well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room, which has a range of contemporary style units and drawers, solid wood working surfaces, inset Belfast sink and a range of appliances. This is a light and airy space with a double skylight as well as dual aspects and views to gardens.
The impressive open-vaulted dining room has wonderful height and sense of space with wooden floors and pine-clad ceiling. A striking feature staircase leads to the first-floor guest bedroom with en suite. Steps from the dining room lead down to the sitting room which enjoys delightful views of the rear garden, access to a private decked seating area, exposed brick feature wall and wood burning stove.
To the front of the property, accommodation comprises a double bedroom, study and large family room, both of which could be configured as bedrooms. A family bathroom and utility/laundry room complete this wing of the house.
The principal bedroom suite has glazed double doors opening into the rear garden, an en suite shower room and generous built-in wardrobes. A further bedroom currently used as a second study forms the remainder of this wing, all of which benefit from independently controlled underfloor heating.
Outside, split-level decked seating areas overlook the lovely west facing rear gardens. These comprise lawn areas with surrounding borders of various plants, shrubs and attractive trees, which provide wonderful colour in the spring and summer months. Solar panels were installed in 2015. A large outbuilding provides a store/workshop with power and light and an insulated home office/studio space with wall-mounted electric heater.
Woodlands Park is a peaceful tree-lined cul-de-sac that is considered one of the most sought-after residential locations in the village. It is within cycling distance of Cambridge City centre and the guided busway giving fast access to The Science Park and Cambridge North Station and falls within catchment for outstanding schools for all ages. Girton is a highly favoured spot to live, lying just 3 miles North West of the city with fast approach via the Huntingdon Road. The village has two pubs, a social club, shop and recreation grounds, as well as its own golf course, and is situated on the edge of open countryside. Girton also benefits from proximity to Eddington, with its supermarket, hotels and other amenities. There is an excellent village school, the Girton Glebe, within walking distance of the property. Impington Village College is also easily accessible. Communications are excellent with the A14 and M11 being close by.
