The property is well presented throughout and has lots of lovely character features including box windows to the front, a lovely fireplace in the sitting room and a farmhouse style kitchen.
There is a pretty front door opening to the entrance hall, which in turn leads to the sitting room which has two rise and fall sash windows to the front and a traditional fireplace with cupboards and shelving either side. The kitchen / dining room is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted cabinets and there is an integrated washing machine and dishwasher and space within the chimney breast for a large range cooker; a door leads out to the back garden. On the ground floor there is also a small lobby area and a bathroom fitted with a bath, shower enclosure, w.c and handbasin.
On the first floor the landing opens to a stunning modern bathroom fitted with a roll top bath, shower enclosure, hand-basin and w.c and there are two bedrooms both with built in wardrobes, with the smaller room also having a traditional cast iron fireplace.
On the second floor there are two further bedrooms; a large master room with lovely views of the garden, there is also a further single room with storage into the eaves.
Outside there is a pretty front garden planted with a variety of shrubs and flowers. A pedestrian path leads to the rear garden which is accessed via a pedestrian gate. The rear garden is laid to lawn and fully enclosed with a flower border to one side and a patio adjacent to the house. There is also a studio which is currently used as an office, but this could equally make a lovely hobby space; at the far end there is a summer house.
Little Shelford is one of the most highly sought-after south Cambridge villages and stands about 2 miles / 3.5 km south of the City boundary. The majority of the village is within a Conservation Area which has protected its charm and ensured it has not been swallowed up by major development over the years.
It is a thriving community with a modern village hall, a large recreation ground with a brand new sports pavilion, a charming phone box library, The Navigator pub and Thai restaurant and a Chinese takeaway / fish and chip shop. The OFSTED ‘Good’ village primary school is just across the border into Great Shelford and there are excellent further facilities in that larger village including a post office, a butcher, a chemist, two supermarkets, hairdressers, GP surgery and dentist.
For the commuter there are good cycle routes into the City and to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Biomedical Campus, Junction 11 of the M11 is about 2.5 miles / 4 km away and Great Shelford mainline station (Cambridge and London Liverpool
