A substantial and thoughtfully extended, detached home, providing luxurious accommodation, set in a plot of around 0.18 of an acre. The property enjoys beautiful, open views to the front and has a garage, studio / gym and ample off road parking.
The property has been skilfully updated and improved by the current owners who have carefully worked to create a home that is both modern and elegant. There is a stunning newly fitted kitchen and all the bathrooms and the cloakroom have been re-fitted using high quality sanitary ware and fittings. They have also redecorated the property using a modern blend of strong colours, complemented by calming neutrals. The gardens are equally beautiful and are a very good size, without being too large to manage.
Thornbridge is set well back from the road and approached over a wide gravel drive, bordered by mature shrubs. The entrance is set below a covered porch which provides protection from the elements and the front door opens to an impressive entrance hall which has an elegant staircase winding up to the first floor and a lovely wooden floor. The principal living space is to the rear of the property and this is laid out in three defined areas. There is a very spacious kitchen area, a cosy sitting area and a dining area which has views over the garden and is set below a lantern which floods the room with natural light. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with modern white units and has a large island with a breakfast bar; there is a built in oven and microwave, a hob with extractor over, a wine cooler and an integrated undercounter freezer. There is additional space for a large American style fridge / freezer and space for a dishwasher. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a utility room with a second sink and cupboards which house the washing machine and dryer. On the ground floor there is also a study, a modern cloakroom and a restful, dual aspect sitting room, which is generously proportioned and has a beautiful fireplace with cabinets fitted to one side for storage.
On the first floor the galleried landing is a really lovely space with a window providing views over the paddocks to the front and all the bedrooms and the family bathroom leading off. The property has five bedrooms with the main bedroom having twin built in wardrobes and a luxurious en-suite fitted with a large bath tub, separate shower enclosure, w.c and a vanity unit inset with a hand-basin. The guest bedroom is a good double with a built in wardrobe and a high quality en-suite shower room, and there are two further double rooms both of which are generously proportioned and have built in storage. The fifth bedroom is slightly smaller but would still make a good single room and this again has built in cupboards. The first floor is completed by a luxurious family bathroom fitted with a large bath tub, vanity unit with inset hand-basin and w.c.
To the rear of the property there is a manicured garden with a terrace adjacent to the house leading to a large expanse of lawn bordered by shrubs; there is a fitted BBQ and an outside kitchen area. At the far end there is a further patio and two raised vegetable beds. The rear garden enjoys a high degree of privacy.
The property formerly had a double garage, however the owners have had one side of the garage converted into a room which is currently used as a gym. This room would equally make a great home office or hobby room, alternatively it could easily be converted back to provide a second garage if preferred.
Haslingfield is a lovely, traditional village about 4 miles south west of the city boundary. It is far enough out that it feels like a village, but close enough to offer easy access to Cambridge, the A10 or the M11. For cyclists there is a network of bridleways and permissive routes to Grantchester, Trumpington and Harston.
Within the village there is a pre-school and a local primary school which is rated good by Ofsted, there is also a post office and general store, village cafe and a delicatessen. The thriving community has various sporting and social clubs, groups and societies. There is a village hall, pub, excellent playground, recreation ground and separate skate park.
The village has a voluntary transport scheme for those who do not drive and there is also a village warden scheme and sheltered housing.
