An extended 1930s semi with double-length garage, stylishly updated and brilliantly positioned backing on to fields and looking across the village recreation ground.
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 the recreation ground and tennis courts and backs on to farmland with 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.
The house has been extended on two storeys and more recently comprehensively updated including a new kitchen and bathroom and new flooring in the last 3 years or so. It is thoroughly modern but with a pleasing warmth of character, retaining period features such as 1-over-3 internal doors.
There is a double-length brick garage with the potential to fully or partially convert it to further accommodation (we have a written estimate on file to form a home office in the rear part).
The rear garden is about 40m / 130ft long and backs on to fields.
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.
It has an Ofsted ‘Good’ primary school that feeds Sawston Village College (2 miles), two pubs, a small supermarket, petrol filling station, hairdresser, beauty salon and barber. 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.
