A significantly extended, detached home, providing 2116 sqft (196sqm) of beautiful, contemporary accommodation, together with a studio / treatment room, garden and off road parking. Offered with no onward chain.
The property has undergone a huge programme of work during the vendors ownership, and although in need of a little finishing, the property is well planned, with a stunning open plan living space and a luxurious master suite.
67 Babraham Road is approached over a block paved driveway providing parking and there is an area of lawn to one side; a path leads between the house and garage through to the rear garden.
The front door opens to a bright entrance hall with a useful recess providing a space for hanging coats and storing shoes, and from here the staircase leads up to the first floor. There is a cloakroom fitted with plumbing, which just needs the sanitaryware installing and a large utility room off. The utility provides a second sink, fitted cupboards, space for a washing machine and further appliances; there is also a door leading out to the garden.
To the far end, the hallway leads through to a contemporary open plan living room with electrically controlled velux windows and bi-fold doors providing lots of natural light and there is ample space for a seating area, a large dining table and chairs and a generous kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped with built in twin ovens and microwave, an integrated dishwasher, a downdraft extractor (rising from the island), a beverage fridge, a separate food preparation sink, hot tap and waste disposal unit.
The sitting room opens off the kitchen and is light and again generously proportioned. On the ground floor is also a further reception room, currently used as a playroom, but this would make a great snug, second sitting room or occasional fifth bedroom if needed.
On the first floor, the landing has a large window providing natural light over the staircase. There are four generous bedrooms all of which would take a double bed, with the smallest room having built in wardrobes and the master having a good sized dressing area leading through to a luxurious en-suite, with twin basins, a high level W.C., and a large shower enclosure.
Outside, the rear garden is enclosed, with an area of lawn, a large specimen tree and a patio adjacent to the house. The patio has been laid with matching tiles to the main living room to allow the space to flow seamlessly from inside to out, during the warmer summer months when the bi-fold doors are pushed back.
The owners have also converted part of the garage to provide workspace, with a shower room off. The front has however been retained as a storage area suitable for bikes etc.
The property is in need of a small amount of cosmetic finishing, such as fitting the kitchen worktops, installing the cloakroom sanitaryware, decorating and fitting some new flooring.
Sawston is one of the largest villages to the near south of the City, situated about 3 miles from the City boundary and around 4 miles from the Addenbrooke’s campus.
