As expected from a 17th century period property, 115 High Street, Sawston provides characterful accommodation and sympathetically blends character features with all the comforts expected of a modern home.

The front door, to the side of the property, opens to an elegant entrance hall with high ceilings, brass chandelier and a galleried landing at first floor level. From here, doors open to all the principal room as well as a cellar with both lighting and power outlets, useful for storage and extra appliances.

The atmospheric sitting room, which extends across the whole of the front of the house, contains a wonderful inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove, whilst the exposed timbers lend a particular sense of history. The windows to the front and side flood the room with natural light.

To the rear there is a formal dining room which has a pretty feature fireplace and views over the garden.

By contrast the kitchen and utility room are fitted with modern cabinetry and have plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher. The bi-fold doors open fully onto the terrace, allowing for perfect al fresco dining in warmer months.

Off the utility room is a modern bathroom containing an unusually large and comfortable bath perfect for a relaxing soak.

On the first floor, the galleried landing provides independent access to three generous double bedrooms, whilst the window provides light to the hall. The main bedroom is dual aspect and contains the airing cupboard. The second bedroom has an original feature fireplace and en-suite shower room, whilst the third, dual aspect, bedroom has a built in wardrobe, hand-basin and views over the rear garden.

Outside, the property is set back from the road behind a neat front garden, which is laid to lawn surrounded by flower beds containing a variety of ‘cottage garden’ plants, lavender hedges and fruit trees. Alongside the front garden is a gravelled driveway for parking.

The rear garden is part laid to lawn, being bordered with yet more traditional plant varieties and fruit trees including a plum, pear and peach tree. There is a lovely terrace adjacent to the kitchen, a lavender bordered vegetable plot, a useful large storage shed, log store, and a second ‘sun trap’ terrace against the tall south facing garden wall.

Sawston is one of the largest villages to the near south of the City, situated about 3 miles from the City boundary and around 4 miles from the Addenbrooke’s campus. It also gives excellent access to the M11 (J10 3 miles). There are good cycle routes to the mainline railway station at Whittlesford (1.5 miles) and the science parks at Babraham (2 miles) and Abington (3.5 miles).

The village has a fantastic range of local shops including a small supermarket, various restaurants and takeaways, an excellent modern health centre, primary schools and the high achieving Sawston Village College which has a sports centre, gym and swimming pool that are open to the public. There is very little need to leave the village for day-to-day living.
