A recently updated, detached bungalow, providing spacious accommodation with a private rear garden, garage, and off road parking.
9 De Freville Road is offered with no upward chain and is located just a stones throw from the access for the DNA cycleway, which provides a safe route for pedestrians or cyclists to the Addenbrookes Campus and the city beyond.
The bungalow is approached over a neat front garden with hedging to the front screening the property from the road, and to the side there is a driveway which leads to the garage and provides parking. The front door is set beneath a porch which offers protection from the elements and the entrance hall is spacious and impressive with lots of space to welcome visitors. The sitting / dining room enjoys a dual aspect with a large window to the front and glazed doors to the rear flooding the room with natural light and there is a fireplace, air conditioning unit and plenty of room for sitting at one end and for a dining table and chairs at the other. The adjacent kitchen is a lovely bright room with a window and part glazed door overlooking the garden and a sky light providing lots of light. The kitchen is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted cabinets and there is a built-in double oven, gas hob with extractor over and space for a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There is also a built in pantry and an air conditioning unit.
The inner hallway has a large double cupboard and leads to a family bathroom and two generous bedrooms; a sizable double and a second which is slightly smaller.
To the rear of the property there is a private, fully enclosed garden which is laid mainly to lawn with a patio, shed and single garage.
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 excellent day-to-day facilities 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.
