An extended detached bungalow with wonderful potential, set in a generous 0.24 acre plot with a south-west facing garden backing on to farmland, walking distance from the village centre and mainline station.
The property stands back from Duxford Road, secluded behind a hedgerow with farmland both in front and behind. It is about a 10 minute, half-mile walk from the village school or High Street to the north and a similar distance to Whittlesford Parkway mainline station to the south which gets in to Cambridge central in about 13 minutes or London Liverpool Street in a little over an hour.
The property has been extended to give deceptively generous space including three bedrooms, the master with an en-suite and an impressive 10.8m / 35ft long main living space that opens on to the garden.
It would benefit from some general updating but its plot size and location give it brilliant potential to create a wonderful home. A number of the neighbours have recently extended upwards and outwards.
Attached to the side of the bungalow is a generous garage / workshop and immediately behind the house a paved terrace with a timber detached games room beside it. The rear garden is about 55m / 180ft long and faces south west into the afternoon and evening sun. At the far end is another timber outbuilding housing a swimming pool. The pool was enjoyed by the current owners for many years but is now unused and would require relining and recommissioning.
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 10 of the M11 is only about a mile away and on the outskirts of the village is its mainline railway station, Whittlesford Parkway, which offers services to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street and makes the village an excellent base for commuting down to London.
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.
