A beautiful 2 bedroom semi-detached house with parking and south-facing rear garden. The property forms part of an exclusive over 55s development and is superbly situated close to the heart of this ever popular village.
This 2 bedroom semi-detached home enjoys a convenient position in the heart of Great Shelford and has been extended by the current owner to incorporate a delightful garden room which looks over its private gardens.
An entrance hall has space for coats and footwear, understair storage and access to a cloakroom WC which is fitted with a modern white suite. The kitchen has been fitted with a stylish range of units and is finished with composite stone worktops; integrated Siemens appliances include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, oven and induction hob with extractor over. Double doors from the dining area lead through to the garden room which serves as a versatile reception room and benefits from southerly aspects. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a spacious sitting room with a feature electric fireplace, contrasted by an attractive surround.
Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms, both of which include built-in wardrobes. The bathroom has been fitted with a beautiful suite which includes a separate bath and shower, complemented by attractive tiling and a heated towel rail.
Outside there is a private south-facing rear garden which has a paved terrace, well suited to alfresco dining and bordered with a variety of stocked beds. There is a storage shed and side gate leading to an allocated parking space with visitors parking on a first come, first served basis.
The development is run by elected resident directors and charges for maintenance, electricity, gardening of communal areas and external window cleaning are commensurate with actual costs (approximately £160 per quarter). This also includes a contribution towards a sinking fund for unexpected repairs. This arrangement means the property is perfect as a home for those looking for something easy to manage and close to the amenities.
No.5 Church Street forms part of Old School Court which was built in 2011-12 by multiple award-winning local developer Hill Residential Ltd and is an exceptional development, specifically built for the over 55s and superbly located just off the village’s main street.
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.
