A detached village centre detached property on a generous plot with wonderful south westerly views to the rear. Renovated with care and attention to detail throughout in 2016.
The property stands towards the village end of Duxford Road, within walking distance of its excellent facilities and also just 0.8 miles / 1.3 km from Whittlesford Parkway Station and its 15 minute service to Cambridge and 63 minute service to London Liverpool Street.
It lays some 23m / 75ft back from the road behind handsome mature trees and has a wonderful rear outlook across open farmland. The location offers a rare balance of practical convenience and rural views.
The property was comprehensively refurbished inside and out in 2016 including new gas central heating, new plumbing, new wiring, new windows and doors, new bathroom and kitchen fitments, new flooring, garden landscaping and complete redecoration inside and out. The result is a striking, high quality contemporary home.
The three double bedrooms, bathroom and separate shower room are at the front of the property and the main living space extends across the rear with two sets of broad folding doors allowing fantastic views across the rear garden and paddocks beyond. The kitchen includes an integrated dishwasher and fridge / freezer and a built in contemporary glass gas hob, electric oven and microwave. The sitting room has a wood burning stove in the central chimney breast which divides the living room into individual areas without compromising light or the sense of space
The bath and separate shower rooms are fitted to a high standard and there is a useful utility cupboard in the broad entrance hall with plumbing for a washing machine. A sliding pocket door can separate the living space from the hall or be slid away to allow a fine view right from the front door all the way to the farmland at the rear.
The gardens too have been carefully considered and enhanced. The front garden measures about 14m x 11m / 47ft x 36ft and includes a lawn, shrub beds and a gravel driveway giving parking for 2-3 cars. An oak pillared portico leads to a wide side access with raised beds and a winding pathway to the rear.
The rear garden is about 15m x 12m / 50ft x 40ft and faces south west into the afternoon and evening sun and is landscaped with extensive curved decking lawn and raised shrub beds.
The property is for sale with no onward chain.
Whittlesford is an enormously popular historic village. It is far enough away from Cambridge to be peaceful but close enough to offer an easy commute and has a good range of local facilities. Junction 9 of the M11 is only about a mile away and on the outskirts of the village is its mainline railway station, Whittlesford Parkway, which gets to Cambridge in 15 minutes or less and London Liverpool Street in about 63 minutes.
Within the village there is a post office and shop, The Tickell Arms pub and restaurant and The Bees in the Wall pub. There is also The Red Lion Inn and a hotel by the railway station. The village has various societies, clubs and sports teams and an OFSTED ‘Good’ primary school that feeds to the OFSTED ‘Good’ Sawston Village College.
