An elegantly proportioned, extended 1920s semi of lovely, traditional character with a mature 40m / 130ft rear garden.
The house is one of a run of a short row of 1920s semis set back from Hauxton Road opposite a mature tree line. It is of larger proportions than many other houses of the period, showing this in its broad hallway and generous living rooms and bedrooms.
The ground floor is enlarged to the rear by a handsome extension, currently a dining room, with a tall ceiling and glazed roof lantern which adds excellent space to the two original reception rooms. The kitchen / breakfast room is refitted and there is a cloakroom neatly added under the stairs.
On the first floor are three good bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC.
In front of the property is a gravel drive giving parking for 3 cars. Timber double gates at the side give access to a covered side area used as a bike store. The rear garden is impressively proportioned, measuring about 40m x 9m / 130ft x 30ft, and is nicely mature and private.
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.
