A well presented and improved, three bedroom detached bungalow set in a good sized private plot at the head of this popular cul-de-sac close to the centre of the village.
1960’s three bedroom detached bungalow, which has undergone a programme of refitting and refurbishment inside over the last few years. This includes a new kitchen, bathroom, gas combi boiler, new patio doors to the rear of the living room and a superb wood burning stove inset to the old fireplace.
The property has been re-plastered and redecorated throughout and the flooring has been renewed also.
The entrance hall leads to an inner hallway from which the bedrooms are accessed and has two useful fitted storage cupboards. The kitchen is fitted with a modern range of wall and base level units, ample worksurfaces and spaces for freestanding appliances. It enjoys a dual aspect and access to the rear garden. The living room has a superb glazed rear aspect with patio doors, which needless to say, floods the room with natural light. The newly fitted wood burning stove with tiled hearth and stone mantle, creates a beautiful focal point to the room. There is also a bespoke fitted storage cupboard and television unit.
There are two generously sized double bedrooms, a single bedroom currently used as a study, and a family bathroom with modern white three-piece suite. Outside, the property benefits from a front garden with a dwarf retaining wall and crazy paving, plant and shrub borders and a good sized linear driveway providing parking for two cars and access to the single garage. There is gated access to the rear garden, which is fully enclosed by timber fencing. The garden is set out into distinct areas; a good sized decking area, central crazy paving area with planting area; raised vegetable/flower beds with retaining sleepers; BBQ and gravelled areas. There is a large timber shed, an external tap and also lighting.
The single garage has an up-and-over door with power and light connected and personal door into the rear garden.
Oakington is an admired village just 5 miles north of Cambridge City Centre. It is well positioned for access to the A14 and M11 making it convenient for access around the country.
The village has a number of small businesses, a primary school which feeds onto Impington Village College, the White Horse public house and several large recreational areas including the Oakington Pavilion. Girton, Bar Hill and Longstanton golf clubs are within a few minutes drive.
The nearby villages of Bar Hill and Histon provide additional shopping including a Tesco Superstore. The Guided Busway is a most useful asset to Oakington, running from Huntingdon Railway Station to Trumpington Park & Ride. Cyclists are well catered for with a dedicated cycleway adjacent to the Guided Busway providing safe access to Cambridge Science Park and Cambridge North Station, from where London can be reached in under an hour.
All in all therefore, the village has much to commend it.
