No.6 High Street represents a very rare opportunity to acquire a distinctive family home in a popular village location. The property boasts a wealth of charming period features including exposed beams, fireplaces and original windows and doors.
On the ground floor are 3 wonderful reception rooms, of particular note is the property’s impressive vaulted sitting room, which benefits from a triple aspect, wood-burning stove and French doors leading to the private gardens. The kitchen has been fitted with a comprehensive range of units, includes an island and Redfyre range cooker. The room is finished with travertine tiled flooring, which continues through to a utility room with additional units and space/plumbing for appliances. There is an inner reception hall, which provides access to a cloakroom WC and a sitting room with stairs to the first floor.
Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. The master bedroom is particularly spacious and has a dressing room with built-in cupboards and a Jack & Jill ensuite, which adjoins the fourth bedroom.
No.6 is set back privately from the High Street and accessed via a pathway, which is shared with the neighbours at No.4. The property is set within delightful garden,s which have been exceptionally well cared for and offer a superb degree of privacy. There are 3 brick-built storage sheds with lighting and power, a decked area and block paved patio well suited to alfresco dining.
The gardens are mainly lawned and interspersed with a variety of fruit trees including peach, plumb, apricot, grape, apple and cherry. There is a further walled garden, serving as a blank canvas for the next owner and including a greenhouse.

For commuters the A11, which links down to the M11, is only a mile away and Cambridge is easily accessed along either the A1307 or A1301. Whittlesford Parkway mainline station (Cambridge and London Liverpool Street) is about 4 miles.
Abington has its own major science park, Granta Park, which can be reached easily on foot or by bike by a footpath off the High Street and neighbouring Babraham’s science park is less than 2 miles away with a pleasant cycle and foot route over the A11 starting near the end of Bourn Bridge Road.
