A five bedroom house secluded within a splendid 0.35 acre plot at the end of a private lane right at the heart of the village.
Bar Close is a private lane serving two properties and is tucked back off Bar Lane, right at the historic centre of the village. The lane sets the house back amidst the leafy gardens of its large neighbours, well away from any road at all lending it wonderfully peaceful, secluded feel. Yet it is brilliantly accessible, moments’ walk from the village primary school and other facilities, about a fifteen minute walk (0.8 miles) from Great Shelford’s mainline railway station. The DNA cycleway that goes straight to the Addenbrooke’s Campus and on to the city centre via the Guided Bus cycleway is less than a mile, a five-minute ride.
The lane passes by the neighbour and on to the property where there is parking for between 2 and 4 cars, depending on size, leading to a detached double garage with an attached workshop.
The wonderful gardens expand east, south and west behind the house, bringing sun throughout the day with the whole plot (excluding the lane) extending to about 0.35 acres.
The house has been substantially enlarged from its original form and now provides over 210sqm / 2267 sqft of internal space with up to six bedrooms over the two floors including a ground floor guest room with en-suite and a first floor master bedroom with en-suite and a balcony looking on to the garden.
The living space is particularly fine with the kitchen, dining room and sitting room projecting as a peninsular into the gardens enabling light from east, south and west including broad, folding doors opening south-west on to the gardens from the sitting room.
The house is for sale with no onward chain and immediate availability due to a relocation to Australia.
Stapleford is a thriving village about 2 miles south of the City and is especially desirable to those looking for easy access into Cambridge from a traditional and attractive village.
It has an Ofsted ‘Good’ primary school that feeds Sawston Village College (2 miles), two pubs, a small supermarket, petrol filling station, hairdresser, beauty salon and barber. Further facilities including a GP surgery and dentist can be found in neighbouring Great Shelford. The Gog Magog Hills, trust land, golf club and Wandlebury Country Park are at the northern edge of the village.
For the commuter there is easy access to the DNA cycleway, which in turn gives access to the Addenbrooke’s site (2.5 miles) as well as the City beyond. Great Shelford railway station is close by and offers services to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street.
