A recently updated and much improved detached home, set in a quiet tucked away location, with a generous, mature, south west facing garden; double garage and off road parking. The plot offers potential for future development subject to planning permission.
The property has undergone a complete renovation, from the fundamentals such as a full electrical upgrade, the installation of a new gas boiler and the updating of the heating system, to the fitting of a log burner, modern, high quality kitchen and the installation of a beautiful new bathroom.
7 Ascham Lane is approached over a deep front garden, which is laid to lawn with a driveway to the side; double gates lead to three further parking spaces and a double garage. The front door is set beneath a covered porch and this opens to the entrance hall, which has a modern cloakroom off and the staircase leading up to the first floor with some very useful storage built underneath. The kitchen / dining room is a lovely dual aspect room with underfloor heating and there is a generous dining area at one end and a spacious kitchen area at the other. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with high quality cabinets set beneath quartz working surfaces and further matching cupboards over. There is space for a large range cooker with extractor over; integrated dishwasher and microwave, twin bowl ceramic butler sink and space for a washing machine. There is also a side door leading to the driveway. The adjacent sitting room to the rear of the property is again a lovely bright room with windows and doors to two aspects, there is a pretty log burner and beautiful, parquet style flooring.
On the first floor, the landing is light and spacious with a window over the staircase providing natural light. There are four good bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles; the main bedroom has a feature floor to ceiling window providing views over the front garden and the owners have installed bespoke wardrobes to one wall with hanging rails and shelving. The second bedroom is again a very good double, the third is currently used as a study, but would take a double bed and the fourth is a generous single. The bathroom has been fitted to a very high standard and has a bath with shower and screen over, W.C and vanity unit with inset hand-basin.
Outside, there is a covered terrace to the side of the property enclosed by mature grape vines; there is a generous storage shed and utility space tucked neatly at the far end. The property is set within a corner plot backing onto open fields with the rear garden enjoying a south westerly aspect. There is a lawn bordered by shrubs and a large double garage in the corner.
A comprehensive list of the renovations include:-
/ Full electrical and lighting upgrade including a new consumer unit with Ethernet and DSL connectivity in all rooms; separate consumer unit for garage and electric car charger.
/ Move from oil to gas central heating including a new Worcester Bosch boiler and Megaflow tank.
/ New bathroom with Aqualisa dual head, digital shower, and integrated speaker.
/ Wood burning stove installed.
/ Carbon Fibre lining fitted to external water and waste pipes.
/ New kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom, bespoke wardrobes and bespoke under stairs storage.
Please note that the EPC was commissioned before the property was converted from oil fired central heating to gas, which we anticipate would improve the rating.
Whittlesford is an enormously popular historic village. It is far enough away from Cambridge to be peaceful but close enough to offer an easy commute and has a good range of local facilities. Junction 9 of the M11 is only about a mile away and on the outskirts of the village is its mainline railway station, Whittlesford Parkway, which gets to Cambridge in 15 minutes or less and London Liverpool Street in about 63 minutes.
Within the village there is a post office and shop, Provenance Kitchen (10 mins walk away), a prize winning restaurant and deli, The Tickell Arms pub and restaurant and The Bees in the Wall pub. There is also The Red Lion Inn and a hotel by the railway station. The village has various societies, clubs and sports teams and an OFSTED ‘Good’ primary school that feeds to the OFSTED ‘Good’ Sawston Village College.
