An established, 1930s semi-detached home, with many lovely characterful features and a stunning contemporary extension providing a dining / family room. The property also enjoys a generous garden, garage and off road parking.
3 Ferndale Rise is beautifully presented throughout and is conveniently located for access to Cambridge, but at the same time it benefits from being in a quiet location within a small cul-de-sac.
The property is approached over a neat front garden with a driveway providing parking and giving access to the garage. There is a small porch over the front door giving protection from the elements and the entrance hall is bright, with the staircase rising up to the first floor.
The property has three lovely reception areas, all of which are nicely proportioned. The front sitting room is currently used as a study and has a lovely fireplace fitted with a log burner. The sitting room to the rear has a pretty fireplace and windows and a glazed door overlooking the garden. The third reception area is off the kitchen and is a contemporary room with a vaulted ceiling fitted with roof lights, and there are windows and doors stretching along one wall, which flood the room with natural light. The adjacent kitchen is fitted with modern white cabinets and there is space for a fridge/freezer, and for a cooker with an extractor over. To the rear of the kitchen there is a door leading through to the garage, where there is a utility space, which has a second sink and currently houses the dishwasher and washing machine.
On the first floor, the landing opens to three bedrooms, two of which are good doubles and the third is a single. There is also a modern family bathroom, fitted with a bath with shower over, w.c., and a vanity unit with inset hand-basin.
Outside, the garden is laid predominantly to lawn bordered by shrub beds and there is a patio adjacent to the house, ideal for dining or entertaining.
Ferndale Rise is conveniently located just off Newmarket Road. The property is within easy reach of the A14/M11 road networks, Marshall’s and Cambridge City Centre.
The River Cam and green spaces of Ditton Meadows and Stourbridge Common are all just a short walk away. The Chisholm Trail is due to be completed in 2021 and will give easy access to Cambridge North Station which is situated less than a mile from the property.
The Cambridge Retail Park, Beehive Centre and Sainsbury’s Superstore at Coldhams Lane are also within close proximity. Schooling is available at The Galfrid School and Fen Ditton Primary.
The Chisholm Trail, soon to be completed in 2021, is nearby and will give further ease of access to Cambridge Railway Station, the south of the city, Cambridge North Station, and the other side of the river.
