A beautifully presented, two-bedroom, period cottage right in the heart of Great Shelford with a south facing garden. Easy access into Cambridge by car, bicycle or via Shelford train station.
This mid terrace property is estimated to have been built in the 1600s but has been lovingly renovated over the years. Originally built as a Guildhall for the Parish opposite it offers a generous amount of space not typical of period cottages. It is Grade II listed and retains many original features.
A few minutes’ walk into the centre of Great Shelford, this property benefits from a variety of local amenities such as two supermarkets, Shelford Deli, a Doctors Surgery and many other facilities that make Great Shelford such a sought-after place to live.
The ground floor is spacious with plenty of room for a living area and a separate dining space. There are impressive exposed beams throughout and a large inglenook fireplace. Towards the back of the house a modern and well-equipped kitchen with doors opening out on to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with modern grey units, a solid wood worktop and whitegoods; a gas hob, oven, fridge and washer/dryer. Also on the ground floor is a stylish bathroom fitted with a large shower, WC and hand basin.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with particularly high ceilings, exposed beams and one has a brick fireplace. A large landing between the bedrooms is currently used as a walk-in wardrobe and is fitted with plenty of storage.
The rear garden is south-facing and approximately 15m / 50ft in length with a period brick shed at the far end and decorative mangle. There is rear access to the garden for bicycles.
This property is available from mid-July to a professional household, ideally furnished although this can be open to negotiation.
