A brilliantly light, superbly appointed detached house designed by Nicholas Tye Architects and built in 2019/20. Peacefully situated in a leafy village centre location.
Gog Magog Way is a pretty, leafy, pleasantly meandering road that forms part of the historic heart of the village and is home to some of the area’s most prestigious properties. It carries little through-traffic and enjoys a sense of peace, but is within walking distance of Stapleford’s facilities and Great Shelford’s mainline station.
The house was designed by Nicholas Tye Architects and built through 2019 and 2020. It occupies a plot of about 0.23 acres, with a broad frontage to Gog Magog Way and Dukes Meadow.
There is great flexibility to the arrangement of the accommodation, with up to five bedrooms and four bathrooms, and wonderfully light living spaces opening to one another, but with enough acoustic and visual separation to ensure privacy between rooms. The entrance atrium, currently laid out as a dining and living space, has particularly fine volume and light.
The design of the building allows access to its gardens from all of its living spaces as they wrap around the house. The interior and landscaping reflect its location in being both a contemporary, luxurious, practical sub-urban home and a quiet, semi-rural retreat.
It features high levels of insulation, powder-coated aluminium glazing and solar PV roof panels, achieving a B / 87 energy rating and ensuring low environmental impact.
There are two garages, one retained from the building previously on the site and the other integrated to the house, which is part of warm envelope of the building and currently set up as a gym.
