A beautifully styled, modern town-house with well balanced accommodation. It is wonderfully located off Long Road, within walking distance to the local school, only 1.5 miles from Cambridge Railway Station and 2 miles from the city centre.
Clay Farm Drive forms part of Crest Nicholson’s Halo development, which is known for its high quality fitments and incredibly light accommodation, aided by their large windows and 2.6m high ceilings.
There is nicely proportioned and balanced accommodation over three floors with excellent storage space provided through the home; the downstairs has a full-height double-width sliding cupboard and large cupboard under the stairs, whilst on the second floor landing, there are two double (airing) cupboards. Under floor heating is found throughout and the property has a B / 87 energy rating.
On the ground floor there is an impressive open plan kitchen/dining/living room with a high specification kitchen, integrated appliances and stone surfaces. Large windows to the front and rear aspects let in plenty of natural light and the room is complimented by the warmth of engineered Oak flooring.
On the first floor, the sitting room opens to a large south facing terrace and bedroom 1 has fitted wardrobes and a three-piece en-suite shower room.
The top floor has two double bedrooms and a further stylish three-piece bathroom.
The rear of the house has a southerly aspect and the first floor terrace is well positioned to take full advantage of this. Both the first floor terrace and garden have an automatic sprinkler system. The terrace cleverly acts as a car port and biker store all of which are accessed via secure entry.
Halo is off Long Road, in one of the south-city’s most desirable locations with its best private schools and state schools round the corner, the Addenbrooke’s Biomedical Campus at the end of the road and excellent walking, cycle and public transport routes into the city centre.
There are multiple play parks in the estate within a couple of minutes walk and the Hobson’s Park Nature Reserve is less than a five minute walk away.
The development stands alongside Hobsons Brook, an ancient water conduit that used to provide the city’s water, and has been carefully designed to relate to the mature trees that run alongside.
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, Grantchester and the aforementioned Hobson’s Park Bird Reserve between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus. The DNA Pathway gives access to Great Shelford and the Nine Wells nature reserve whilst various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
