Cambridge Road

£850,000 Sold STC

An immaculately kept, five bedroom 188 sqm / 2023 sqft detached house with a single garage at the rear. Very well positioned close to the Shelford end of Cambridge Road.

The house stands about 16m / 50ft back from Cambridge Road, at its junction with Walden Way, opposite allotments just half a mile from the village’s High Street, less than a mile from its mainline railway station and 2 miles from the Addenbrooke’s Campus.

It was completely rebuilt in 2012 by a conscientious and well-respected local family builder from an original 1930s detached property.

The ground floor has a generous bay-windowed main living room at the front of the house with French doors into a wonderful, large kitchen / dining / family room at the rear, with a part-vaulted ceiling with Velux windows and broad bi-folding doors on to the garden. It is superbly equipped with extensive cabinetry and integrated appliances. There is also a useful utility room and a ground floor cloakroom.

The first floor has four bedrooms and an impressive bathroom with a bath and large separate shower cubicle and on the top floor is an impressive self-contained master suite with an en-suite shower room and bespoke wardrobes.

The house is kept beautifully throughout and was built to a high standard and with energy-efficiency in mind. There is gas fired central heating, underfloor on the ground floor and radiators elsewhere, plus a full remote-controlled alarm system.

The front is walled with a gravel drive for 2-3 cars. There is a wide, paved side access used as a drying area and a lawned rear garden with a single detached garage at the far end accessed off Walden Way and giving a further parking space in front.

Great Shelford is one of the most sought-after villages south of the City thanks to its easy access to town and Addenbrooke’s by road, regular buses, car-free purpose built cycleways and train from its mainline railway station that also goes direct to London Liverpool Street.

The historic village centre has excellent day-to-day facilities including two small supermarkets, a convenience store, a deli, hairdressers, doctors, dentist, dispensing chemist, two pubs, restaurants and more. The primary school is very well regarded and there are various community facilities and social clubs. The large recreation ground has a new pavilion, tennis club and sports pitches and annually hosts the excellent Shelford Feast festival.

It is a great community for those looking for a balance of convenience and traditional village feel and offers the real possibility of living day-to-day without the need to regularly drive out of the village
