A substantial, high quality, detached home extending to 1818 sqft (169 sqm), built by David Reed homes in 2002. The property is very well proportioned with accommodation set over three levels, and enjoys a private garden, double garage and off road parking.
Located at the top end of Babraham Road, 1A is very conveniently located, just a stone’s throw from the village centre, college and the bus stop. Built by a highly respected developer, the property is well planned, light and spacious and benefits from five very generous bedrooms and a beautiful refitted kitchen.
The property is approached over a private driveway, with railings enclosing the parking area and a mature shrub bed providing privacy and colour. The front door is set below a covered entrance and opens to the hallway which is particularly spacious and welcoming and there is a useful double cupboard for storing shoes and coats and a modern cloakroom. The sitting room is elegant with a fireplace and French doors leading out to the patio and there is a separate dining room and a study. The kitchen breakfast room is beautifully fitted with a range of matching floor and wall mounted cabinets; there is a double oven, hob with extractor over and integrated microwave and dishwasher. There is also a striking, bespoke breakfast bar, which seats six and a built in cupboard under the staircase. The adjacent utility room has further fitted cabinets for storage; a butler sink, granite working surface, a door out to the garden and space and plumbing for a washing machine.
On the first floor the landing is particularly bright and spacious with windows to both the front and rear. On this level there is a family bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over, w.c and hand-basin and there are four bedrooms, a large single and three good doubles, with the first and second sized rooms being very generously proportioned and having fitted wardrobes, whilst the master also has en-suite facilities.
The fourth bedroom is on the second floor and again is well proportioned and very bright with windows overlooking the garden and a roof light which floods the room with natural light.
Outside, the rear garden enjoys a very high degree of privacy. There is a terrace adjacent to the French windows ideal for dining or entertaining and this opens to an area of lawn bordered by mature shrubs and trees. A personal door gives access to the garage and there is a pedestrian path leading around the house, to the front.
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. It also gives excellent access to the M11 (J10 3 miles). There are good cycle routes to the mainline railway station at Whittlesford (1.5 miles) and the science parks at Babraham (2 miles) and Abington (3.5 miles).
The village has a fantastic range of local shops including supermarkets, various restaurants and takeaways, an excellent modern health centre, primary schools and the high achieving Sawston Village College, which has a sports centre, gym and swimming pool that are open to the public. There is very little need to leave the village for day-to-day living.
