A smart, bright four bedroom former show home with garage and gated car port set on the boundary of Shelford and Stapleford a few minutes’ walk from the station and shops.
Gordons Close stands back from London Road at the boundary of Stapleford and Great Shelford and is a cul-de-sac of 8 houses built in 2015. Number 1 was the show home and provides light, beautifully kept accommodation throughout.
There is a front-facing bay-window sitting room with double-doors enabling it to be fully closed off or opened into the rear-facing kitchen / dining room, which features a part-vaulted ceiling with three roof lights and doors on to the garden. Off the kitchen is a utility room. The first floor has four bedrooms and a bathroom. Bedroom one has a generous en-suite shower room, fitted sliding-door wardrobes and double doors on to a balcony.
In front of the house are shrub gardens and a block-paved drive giving parking for two cars outside, with an additional covered parking space behind metal gates leading to a single garage with remote-controlled roller door. There is a side garden area to the west of the house. The rear garden is lawned with a paved terrace, shrub borders and a gravel seating area at the end with a small vegetable garden tucked behind the garage.
Stapleford is a thriving village about 2 miles south of the City and is especially desirable to those looking for easy access into Cambridge from a traditional and attractive village.
It has an Ofsted ‘Good’ primary school that feeds Sawston Village College (2 miles), two pubs, a small supermarket, petrol filling station, hairdresser, beauty salon and barber. Further facilities including a GP surgery and dentist can be found in neighbouring Great Shelford. The Gog Magog Hills, trust land, golf club and Wandlebury Country Park are at the northern edge of the village.
For the commuter there is easy access to the DNA cycleway, which in turn gives access to the Addenbrooke’s site (2.5 miles) as well as the City beyond. Great Shelford railway station is close by and offers services to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street.
