A wonderfully restored semi-detached cottage full of warmth and character and positioned right at the very centre of the village with a pretty, south-facing garden.
As of 13th May we are now able to conduct in-person viewings and valuations as we were pre-lockdown.
We have detailed measures in place to ensure we meet and exceed government safety guidelines.
Our office in Trumpington is open by appointment.
The cottage stands right at the very centre of this thriving village, seconds’ from its excellent facilities.
It has been carefully restored and improved by the current owners into a lovely home, beautifully presented throughout with real sympathy for its original character.
The front-facing sitting room is cosy and comfortable and features a wood-burning stove. In the middle of the house is a smartly refitted bathroom and kitchen and at the rear a bright dining room that opens on to the garden. The first floor has two bedrooms.
There is a flower and shrub front garden, enclosed by neat picket fence. A side pedestrian access leads to the rear garden, which faces south and is pleasantly private with a neat lawn, flower and shrub borders and a paved terrace.
There is parking either on the road by the house or in either of the public car parks on the road.
Great Shelford is one of the most sought-after villages south of the City thanks to its easy access to town and Addenbrooke’s by road, regular buses, car-free purpose-built cycleways and train from its mainline railway station that also goes direct to London Liverpool Street.
The historic village centre has an excellent range of amenities including two small supermarkets, a convenience store, a deli, hairdressers, doctors, dentist, dispensing chemist, two pubs, restaurants and more. The primary school is very well regarded and there are various community facilities and social clubs. The large recreation ground has a new pavilion, tennis club and sports pitches and annually hosts the excellent Shelford Feast Festival.
It is a great community for those looking for a balance of convenience and traditional village feel and offers the real possibility of living day-to-day without the need to regularly drive out of the village.
