A Victorian semi in a south-city no-through-street, with lots of retained character and a 33m / 110ft south facing garden.
Alpha Terrace is a traditional late Victorian / early Edwardian Cambridge street and is located off Trumpington High Street. At its far end, is the local primary school, Fawcett, making it a no-through-road to cars. Pedestrians and bicycles can happily cut through though, which gives excellent easy access on the guided bus cycleway and to Addenbrooke’s.
The house stands on the south side of the road giving it a long, sunny rear garden.
It has a pleasing warmth of character with the high ceilings and large windows that characterise this era of house. The ground floor living / dining room is open-plan with a kitchen at the back of the house. On the first floor are two bedrooms and the bathroom.
It is for sale with no onward chain.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city’s finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury’s local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron’s Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
