There are two good reception rooms with the sitting room having a lovely fireplace with a wood burning stove inset, the dining room on the Victorian side is full of light with triple aspect windows including a bay and has an attractive cast iron feature fireplace.
The kitchen / breakfast room is large enough to eat in, has a beautiful tiled floor, a good range of units, plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and an electric cooker point.
On the first floor there are three nicely proportioned bedrooms and a three-piece bathroom suite.
To the front of the house there is a drive for off road parking. Gated side access leads to the rear garden, which is enclosed by a high level brick wall allowing a high degree of privacy. There is a raised lawn, patio and small summer house.
Caxton is a small, attractive village about 10 miles west of the city boundary with easy access along the A428. It is surrounded by open countryside yet easily accessible and about equidistant from Cambridge, St Neots and Royston all of which have an excellent train service to London. The village is bypassed by the A1198, meaning it carries limited through-traffic.
It is within the catchment of the Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated primary school at neighbouring Bourn which feeds the high-achieving Comberton Village College and there is a similarly well rated nursery in Bourn also.
Further day-to-day facilities, including a major supermarket can be found in the next, larger village of Cambourne, the centre of which is less than 2 miles by car or 1.5 on foot.
