A smartly refurbished house with enlarged ground floor accommodation and a beautiful garden, looking out to a large green in a popular south-city area. Fully accessible for wheelchair users.
The house stands on a quiet street, at the corner of King George V playground, giving it a pleasing, open front outlook.
Originally three bedrooms, it was rearranged for the previous owner to be accessible for a wheelchair user, including providing wider circulation spaces and two generous bedrooms, a large en-suite bathroom and separate shower room on the first floor. This provides the house with a more open feeling than its original layout, further enhanced by the kitchen and dining room having been opened up and a further room created at the rear of the house that is currently used as a study and could also be an occasional 3rd bedroom.
During the current owners’ time at the house they have refitted the bathroom, added a new boiler and in the last year refitted the kitchen / dining room and fitted new flooring throughout the ground floor.
There is gravel parking in front of the house for two cars and a fantastic, professionally designed and created 23m / 75ft rear garden.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city’s finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury’s local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron’s Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
