A large detached bungalow, situated on a sizeable plot close to the heart of this ever popular village. The property is in need of complete renovation and offers an exciting development opportunity subject to the relevant consents.
This detached bungalow dates back to the 1930s and occupies a large plot in a highly sought-after village location within easy reach of Cambridge City Centre via Huntingdon Road. The property is set back from the road behind generous frontage and enjoys a secluded rear garden. Providing a practical layout and well-proportioned rooms, the property is in need of complete renovation but offers an exciting opportunity for further development, subject to the relevant consents.
The accommodation briefly comprises a spacious entrance hall with access to a living room with a gas fire. There is a kitchen which has been fitted with a basic range of units and offers space/plumbing for various appliances. The original part of the bungalow has a bathroom and 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are interconnecting. The property was extended to incorporate a small annex with a kitchen/dining room, bathroom and additional bedroom. The annex could quite easily be configured into the main part of the bungalow. Alternatively, it could lend scope as an artist’s studio or be utilised as a rental opportunity.
Outside the front of the property has a driveway providing plenty of parking and an open plan garden which is laid to lawn and bordered with an array of mature shrubs. A side gate leads to a small garage and rear garden which offers a good degree of privacy and is enclosed by fencing.
Girton offers a fantastic balance between living within the city limits and enjoying the traditional charm and facilities of Girton village.

There is a primary school in the village that feeds into Impington Village College (3 miles) plus a tennis club and golf course. Many of the city’s private schools are on the west side of the city, so are easily accessible.
