The property is set well back from the road behind a beautiful mature garden, and enjoys a lovely private setting, with glimpses of the church, which can be appreciated from the sitting room and two of the bedrooms.
Approached over a winding pathway, there is a double garage and parking at the roadside and the path leads past two mature oak trees to the front door. The entrance hall is spacious and has the staircase leading up to the first floor and a cloakroom off. There is beautiful wood block flooring and this extends into the dining room, which is nicely proportioned and has a large window providing lots of natural light and views over the front gardens.
The adjacent sitting room is a lovely bright room with patio doors to the south aspect and two windows which face west, bringing in the best of the afternoon and evening sunshine. There is an open fireplace and there are views over the garden, and the church tower can be seen in the distance. On the ground floor there is also a beautifully fitted kitchen with a range of wall and floor mounted cabinets, which has a built-in fan oven, with a built-in microwave located directly above. There is a hob with an extractor over, a twin bowl sink and drainer, space for a washing machine, drier and fridge freezer and a semi-integrated dishwasher. A water softener located in one of the kitchen cupboards, is a wonderful addition. The kitchen is dual aspect so enjoys lots of natural light and there is a back door, which leads out to the garden.
On the first floor, there is a deep storage cupboard and an airing cupboard. The property has four good bedrooms, with the main bedroom enjoying the convenience of an en-suite fitted with a bath, w.c and a hand-basin. There is a second double room and two generous singles, as well as a family bathroom fitted with a bath, separate shower enclosure, w.c and a hand-basin.

The garage is fitted with power and light and has an electric door.
The owners have confirmed that they have Photovoltaic panels mounted on their west facing roof. These provide them with electricity and they have batteries to store the energy generated. Any excess is sold back to the grid on a feed-in tariff, which is paid at the highest rate.
Little Abington and Great Abington are an attractive, traditional pair of villages about 6 miles south east of Cambridge. They have an OFSTED 'Good' primary school that feeds into the well regarded Linton Village College, a post office / shop, a lovely pub restaurant, a sports ground and active cricket club, village hall and hairdresser.
For commuters the A11, which links down to the M11, is only a mile away and Cambridge is easily accessed along either the A1307 or A1301. Whittlesford Parkway mainline station (Cambridge and London Liverpool Street) is about 4 miles.
Abington has its own major science park, Granta Park, which can be reached easily on foot or by bike by a footpath off the High Street and neighbouring Babraham's science park is less than 2 miles away with a pleasant cycle and foot route over the A11 starting near the end of Bourn Bridge Road.
