A fantastic architect designed detached house, looking south over its gardens with playing fields beyond. Beautifully secluded down a 400ft/120m private drive right at the centre of the village.

Bar Lane is a quiet road, right at the centre of the village and is home to its primary school. Beside the entrance to the school a gravel drive owned by the property and serving just two other houses leads between trees and down to its wonderfully secluded position.

The house was designed and built in 1976 by prominent local architect David Owers as his family home and still looks strikingly bold and impressive today, having been sensitively enhanced by the current owner. Their work included recladding the exterior in cedar, adding the external stair case up to the roof terrace and replacing the first floor glazing.

It is positioned towards the north end of the plot and was designed to make the most of its southerly aspect with tall, wrap around glazing on the ground floor and a generous first floor terrace which looks across the gardens towards the school playing field and moat beyond.

The main ground floor living space is split-level, broken into two by a central brick chimney housing a wood-burning stove. There is also a separate kitchen / dining room and ground floor shower room. The first floor has four double bedrooms, an en-suite shower room, bathroom and laundry cupboard housing the washing machine. The roof terrace is accessible from three of the bedrooms and also by stairs up directly from the garden.

The plot is about 0.3 acres / 1250 sqm, or just over 0.5 acres / 2000sqm including the driveway and includes a detached double garage.

Stapleford is a thriving village about 2 miles south of the City and is especially desirable to those looking for easy access into Cambridge from a traditional and attractive village.

It has an Ofsted ‘Good’ primary school that feeds Sawston Village College (2 miles), two pubs, a small supermarket, petrol filling station, hairdresser, beauty salon and barber. Further facilities including a GP surgery and dentist can be found in neighbouring Great Shelford. The Gog Magog Hills, trust land, golf club and Wandlebury Country Park are at the northern edge of the village.

For the commuter there is easy access to the DNA cycleway, which in turn gives access to the Addenbrooke’s site (2.5 miles) as well as the City beyond. Great Shelford railway station is close by and offers services to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street.
