A substantial detached home, providing generous accommodation, set in a quiet location, with a private rear garden and off road parking.
The property is bright, spacious and well planned with generously proportioned living accommodation and four very good double bedrooms.
Approached over a pretty front garden with a winding pathway leading to the front door, the property has a sense of privacy even before you step inside, yet there is still ample space for a driveway and parking.
The entrance hall is spacious with plenty of room for storing shoes and coats and there is a cloakroom off. The sitting room is dual aspect and well proportioned, with a pretty fireplace and large picture windows to the front and rear as well as a glazed door leading out to the garden. The adjacent kitchen breakfast room is set out in two defined areas with the dining area having double doors out to the garden whilst the kitchen is fitted with a range of modern cabinets and there is a built in oven and hob with extractor over, semi-integrated dishwasher and an integrated microwave, fridge and freezer. On the ground floor there is also a bright study and a utility room with a second sink and space for a washing machine, drier and further appliances.
On the first floor, the landing is particularly spacious with an area at the far end which would make a lovely spot for a desk or for reading. There are four good double bedrooms, three of which are extremely spacious and have fitted wardrobes or cupboards and the master has an en-suite shower room. There is also a modern family bathroom fitted with a bath, w.c and hand-basin.
Outside, the rear garden enjoys a high degree of privacy, with hedging and shrubs screening the property from neighbouring homes. There is a terrace in the far corner and a path which leads around the side of the property and back to the front. An external storage cupboard at the front of the property provides storage for bikes and gardening tools.
The owner has confirmed that Bourn benefitted from the BT Race to Infinity Campaign in 2012 when the local exchange was upgraded to fibre-optic broadband, offering download speeds of up 40mb and upload speeds of up to 10mb according to BT.
The historic village of Bourn is only around 9 miles west of Cambridge but feels very much the peaceful, country retreat. It has excellent day-to-day facilities including a shop, post office, excellent Gastro-pub, award winning Indian Restaurant and an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated primary school, which feeds into the high-achieving and also ‘Outstanding’ Comberton Village College and Sixth Form.
There is also a cafe, butcher, church, historic windmill and a doctors’ surgery. The village is home to the world-famous Bourn Hall Fertility Clinic and on its outskirts is a golf course and health club including a gym, swimming pool, bar and restaurant.
Either Royston or St Neots railway stations are about 11 miles away with a service to London Kings Cross of less than an hour.
