A beautifully renovated and extended detached bungalow in one of the most desirable private roads in this area, peacefully set looking up to the Gog Magog Hills in a 0.28 acre plot.
Dukes Meadow is a private crescent of detached properties in a superb location off Gog Magog Way and is justifiable considered one of the area’s most desirable roads. It is enormously convenient, close to Stapleford’s facilities, a ten minute walk along Mingle Lane to Great Shelford mainline station (Cambridge and Liverpool Street) and less than a mile from Great Shelford’s main shopping street.
The property is on the outside of the crescent, backing on to fields and looking up to the gogs. This gives it a restfulness that is very hard to find so close to the city.
Both the house and gardens have been comprehensively updated and significantly enlarged by the current owner over the last five years and it is now a thoroughly modern, stylish, generous and enormously light home. The side extension was designed to work either as part of the main house or as a self-contained annex.
There is an attached single garage with remote control door and a mezzanine storage area above.
The building is near-central to its plot of about 0.27 acres with extensive parking in front and beautifully created gardens that wrap around to three sides.
Dukes Meadow properties seldom come to the market, Land Registry data suggests only 9 properties on the street have changed hands over the last 20 years. It is rare indeed that one is offered in such fine condition.
Stapleford is a thriving village about 2 miles south of the City and is especially desirable to those looking for easy access into Cambridge from a traditional and attractive village.
It has an Ofsted ‘Good’ primary school that feeds Sawston Village College (2 miles), two pubs, a small supermarket, petrol filling station, hairdresser, beauty salon and barber. Further facilities including a GP surgery and dentist can be found in neighbouring Great Shelford. The Gog Magog Hills, trust land, golf club and Wandlebury Country Park are at the northern edge of the village.
For the commuter there is easy access to the DNA cycleway, which in turn gives access to the Addenbrooke’s site (2.5 miles) as well as the City beyond. Great Shelford railway station is close by and offers services to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street.
