A generous three bedroom house with a 45m / 150ft rear garden in an excellent south city location with easy bike and walking routes to Addenbrooke’s and the city.
Foster Road is part development built around a central playing field in the 1940s. It’s houses are a mix of traditional brick-built and steel-framed, with this one being brick, and popular for their generous plots and fantastic location, moments’ from the local primary and secondary schools and within cycling and walking distance of the Addenbrooke’s and Biomedical Campus.
This property is a particularly appealing example, with a real warmth to its character and one of the longest rear gardens in the area. It is also an example of the larger of its types with its bedrooms extending above the side passage and therefore being usefully bigger.
It has been modernised with an open-plan kitchen / dining room with doors on to the rear garden and a combined and refitted first floor bathroom and cloakroom. The sitting room has a wood-burning stove.
There is parking for two cars in front and a side pedestrian passage shared with next-door that gives access to the rear garden which has a brick-built shed, paved terrace, lawn, vegetable garden, woodstore and chicken run.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city’s finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury’s local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron’s Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
