A spacious, significantly extended, semi-detached home, providing characterful accommodation, with a generous garden and a large garden studio. The property fronts a quiet pedestrian only area, but has a long driveway providing vehicular access off Mill Lane.
The property enjoys a lovely peaceful setting, yet is just a short stroll away from the village centre or the Mill Lane recreation ground.
There is a very generously proportioned living room with plenty of space for sitting at one end and for a large table and chairs at the other. The sitting area has leafy views over the front and has a log burner, there is a second, very decorative fireplace in the dining area. The garden room is located off the dining area and has a vaulted ceiling fitted with roof lights, the room enjoys lots of natural light and has lovely views over the terrace and garden beyond. The kitchen / breakfast room, to the rear of the property has a roof light and bi-fold doors opening to the garden. The kitchen has free standing cabinets with cupboards and drawers and there is space for a large range cooker, dishwasher, and fridge freezer. The adjacent utility room has space for a washing machine and further appliances and leads through to the bathroom which is fitted with a bath, shower enclosure, w.c. and hand-basin. On the ground floor there is a further room, currently used as a bedroom, but this would equally be good as a further reception room or study.
On the first floor the master bedroom has a pretty, ornamental fireplace and an en-suite fitted with a w.c. and hand-basin. There are two further bedrooms both of which are a good size. The loft space is accessed over a loft ladder, and has flooring, a roof light and plastered walls. This would make an ideal hobby space or at the very least provide clean storage.
Outside there is a colourful, mature garden, with shrub borders, lawn, a pond and two striking brick terraces. At the far end there is a modern, generously proportioned studio ideal for working from home and this also incorporates a shed at the end of the building.
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 a small supermarket, 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.
