A stylish 187 sqm / 2014 sqft townhouse presented in near as-new condition and for sale with no chain. Facing a park with a south-east facing rear garden, roof terrace and double car port.
There are a number of townhouses for sale in Trumpington, but we consider this particular house to have a few factors that stand it apart from its competitors, some are small but all are significant.
It was bought new in 2015 by the current owner who has only used it since then on alternate weekends as a base in Cambridge. As such it lacks most of the wear and tear that might be expected of a three year old house.
It stands on the south side of one of Novo’s three central parks, which gives it a sunny south-east facing rear garden and roof terrace. The garden is of a good size for this type of house, measuring about 30ft x 30ft / 9m x 9m.
There is a car port with remote controlled gates, one pedestrian / bike sized and operable independently, that gives parking for two cars, plus enough width for side access. Within the garden is a brick bike store.
The internal accommodation covers about 187 sqm / 2014 sqft, plus the roof terrace and carport, which is considerably larger than most houses in this price range and allows it four genuine double bedrooms and two en-suites, plus ground and first floor cloakrooms and a good size family bathroom. The master bedroom also has a dressing area and access to the roof terrace. The landings are light and unusually spacious and there are two living spaces – the ground floor kitchen / dining / living room and a lovely bright, dual-aspect sitting room that also opens on to the roof terrace.
It is highly energy efficient and includes photovoltaic solar panels on the roof.
The owner furnished the house to a high standard when new and the window coverings and light fittings are all available in the sale. The need for a base in Cambridge has now passed and so the house is for sale with no onward chain and could be available immediately if required.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city’s finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury’s local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron’s Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
