A superbly extended and renovated detached house with a fantastic large kitchen opening on to mature, west-facing gardens about 3 miles south of the city.
The property stands right at the bottom of Haverhill Road, by Stapleford Granary and a short walk from the local primary school over the local allotments. A few minutes’ walk along Haverhill Road is the village recreation ground, playground and tennis courts and at the top of the road the open spaces of the Gog Magog Trust Land and Wandlebury.
The house has been substantially extended and completely refitted by the current owners to create a fantastic family house centred around a large open-plan kitchen / living space that opens through bi-folding doors on to the garden. The ground floor also has a formal sitting room at the front of the house, a large dual-aspect study with a vaulted ceiling and a playroom that could double-up as a spare bedroom. There is also a utility room and ground floor cloakroom. The first floor has a stylish bathroom and four well-proportioned double bedrooms including an excellent 23ft / 7m master with a luxury en-suite shower room. There is a total of 204 sqm / 2198 sqft of accommodation, carefully designed to provide both comfortable, communal living space and a number of separate spaces for when privacy is required.
The renovation included new double-glazing, gas central heating to radiators and air conditioning to the rear rooms.
The house lays about 10m / 35ft back from the road behind a gated, block-paved driveway with shrub borders. There is an integral bike store and gated side pedestrian access to a mature, west facing rear garden with excellent privacy that measures about 20m x 13m / 66ft x 43ft on average.
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.
