The room enjoys wonderful views and has plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. The living room is very generously proportioned and extends across the whole of the rear of the property, it has a wonderfully relaxed feel and enjoys stunning, unbroken views. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a utility/shower room, fitted with cabinets and an integrated washing machine. There is also a large walk-in shower, w.c, and washbasin.
On the first floor, the landing area is currently used as a study/treatment area but was formerly a fourth bedroom, which could easily be reinstated. The master bedroom has views to the front, a pretty fireplace and an en-suite shower and hand-basin. There is an inner landing adding to the sense of privacy, and this leads to two further double bedrooms and a high-quality bathroom, fitted with a bath, w.c, and hand-basin.
The property is set well back off the road, with a large area of gravel for parking, interspersed with trees and shrubs; hedging provides privacy from the neighbouring semi. A pedestrian access leads around the side of the house to the rear. The rear garden is a good size, mature and planted with a variety of trees and shrubs, there is a lawn, and a seating area adjacent to the house.
Grantchester is a highly sought after and picturesque village, enjoying a real sense of being within the countryside, yet it is just a couple of miles from the city centre and just a few moments drive from the M11. The village is famed for its association with Rupert Brooke, Lord Byron and the Drama series Grantchester and has a sense of being a quintessentially English village, with its pretty Medieval church, famous tea rooms and its riverside location.
Grantchester Meadows provide a lovely area for recreation and there is a pleasant walk which ambles along the riverside to the city. The village currently has a pub, gastropub, tea room, village hall, and Gin distillery. Primary education is available in the neighbouring village of Barton, and secondary and sixth form facilities are available at the Ofsted rated ‘outstanding’, Comberton Village College. The village is also on the right side of town for access to some of the best private schools Cambridge has to offer.
