A substantial detached house in an immaculate 0.25 acre plot with distant field views at the rear and the village recreation ground in front.
Haverhill Road runs alongside the village recreation ground and connects the village with the Gog Magog Hills, Trust Land and Wandlebury.
The house is opposite recreation ground and tennis courts and backs on to farmland with broad, distant views towards Sawston and Babraham. The village primary school is less than half-a-mile away with the local shops and pubs a little further. Great Shelford mainline station is less than a mile along Mingle Lane. It stands back from the road behind a block-paved in-and-out driveway.
Internally there is expansive ground floor living space including a large formal sitting room, separate dining room and a bright, generous living room that opens out from the kitchen on to the rear garden. Off here is a useful utility room and a cloakroom/WC. The first floor has the main bathroom and four bedrooms, all with lovely views, and the large main bedroom with an en-suite shower room.
The rear garden is perfectly kept with neat shrub borders and lawn, a large paved terrace accessed from the sitting room and living room and two generous ponds. It also has a historic air raid shelter, used as garden storage, and beside the house a brick store room / bike shed. At the far end of the garden, next to the fields, there is a kitchen garden with vegetable beds and a green house, a further substantial shed / store and a generous conservatory that could work well as a home office or garden room.
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.

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.
