An attractive, contemporary Victorian style home, providing the best of modern construction techniques together with traditional design features. The property provides effortlessly stylish accommodation and has a stunning rear garden.
The property was built in 2008 by a respected local developer for his own use, and was carefully constructed to blend in with the surrounding Victorian homes. The property therefore benefits from the built and thermal qualities required to meet modern regulations, yet still has the lovely traditional feel of a period home.
To the front of the property there is a small front garden which is laid to lawn with a path leading to the front door. The ground floor is open plan, but laid out with three defined areas with kitchen, sitting, and dining areas; there is also a modern cloakroom neatly tucked under the staircase. The sitting area is to the front of the house and has a pretty rise and fall sash window overlooking the front garden; there is a fireplace fitted with a log burner and an exposed brick chimney breast. The mid section of the room provides plenty of space for a table and chairs and the adjacent study area has a feature wall made of reclaimed wood. The kitchen is to the rear of the property and enjoys lots of natural light with windows and doors overlooking the garden and a vaulted ceiling adding to the sense of space. There are floor and wall mounted kitchen cabinets and space for a washing machine, dryer, fridge freezer and a large range cooker.
On the first floor the main bedroom is to the front of the property and has lots of built in storage, there is a second smaller double room and a beautiful modern bathroom, fitted with a bath with shower over, w.c and hand-basin. The room is finished with striking floor tiles and has some built in storage.
Outside the rear garden is beautifully maintained and landscaped to provide interest. There is a patio adjacent to the house leading to an area of lawn, with a colourful bed to one side and a path to the other. At the far end there is an open wooden structure that cleverly provides a sense of separation and beyond this there is a private seating area. A side gate gives pedestrian access into the garden.
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.
